Topic: Bible Journaling
I started another online class called Seeing the Scriptures. It teaches a way of doing study on your selected verse, working through a process of 'headwork', 'heartwork' and 'artwork', to guide toward designing something that is an artistic representation of that verse.
It can be applied to any art venture - jewelry, painting, quilting, or bible journaling.
In the first homework lesson we did the study on Isaiah 40:31. In my prior work with this verse I did the 'expected' bald eagle flying through the mountains.
This time my study led me to focus on having HOPE in God and how that gives us strength.
I wanted to incorporate the word into an EKG strip so used a piece of graph paper printed with pink and added light brown very thin lines to make the grid smaller. After doing the heartbeat and lettering I cut the strip and tore off the ends like one would see in the doctor's office.
I glued this into the bible and added the rest of the phrase in black pen.
I did a little shading on the right and borrom edges to make the strip look more dimensional.
