March 9: Beginning Bible Art Journaling: Making colorful tape to use
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! The first week of our Beginning Bible Art Journaling is complete! You should be more comfortable with using pencils, pens, and copy paper on your Bibles. If this is all you have or all you are comfortable with, you may continue to use the techniques and materials I have taught up until now.
Today I am going to start showing some other tools and techniques you can use in your Bible Art Journaling. Today I would like to show you how to use washi tape. It's just thin, patterened or colored paper that you can write on (or leave for decoration). If you don't have washi tape handy, you can also make your own colored tape this way:
I used Washi tape that I have been itching to use somewhere since I got it! Here's what I did:
I tore off a few pieces of tape after figuring out the tape was too wide for the space I wanted to use it in my Bible:
I chose this verse 24 because the writer says THEY (God's testimonies/His Word) ARE MY COUNSELORS. So I looked up counselors and sure enough, it means that God's Word is to be my counselor, my adviser, the planner!! How cool is that? How convicting is that? How many times do we go to others for advice instead of first going to God through prayer and His Word for guidance? Do I pray about it as much as I talk about it, is a phrase I've heard a lot lately and boy did that ring true in my heart. God's Word is to be my counselor. I need to be seeking His advice, His counsel through His Word! It's great we have fellowship to go to as well, but we are to go to Him first!
Tomorrow we will finish this page and begin the next (can you believe it?? We are moving along!) On Wednesday we will be using stickers so if you have a stash, go ahead and get them out and ready!
May God bless your Art...and your HEART,
