Art Journaling through Proverbs-Week 1

 I joined a group last week Art Journaling through Proverbs. Week 1:


 Each week we get a verse to create with. This week Proverbs 31:20-21
 "She reaches out her hands to the poor, and extends her arms to the needy. She fears not the snow for her household; all her charges are double clothed".  (In the non-Catholic version the verse reads all her charges are clothed in scarlet).

 I am using a small journal instead of writing in a bible (only Catholic Journaling bible I could find was $80.00)..... The Sacred Heart of Jesus is in the upper corner, the hearts are the blood he shed for us and his love- going down to the hands where the love is passed on from one person to another. The tree is a family tree where HIS word is passed on. I copied Proverbs 31 and torn the text for the tree out of that copy.

I used Geatos for the background. I tool a baby wipe and removed Gelato (where you see white- Gesso under the Gelato's). I added more stenciling using distress inks. 

I love doing journaling and thought this would be a great way to get me 'doing it'!

What a fun thing to do Shelly. Love your symbolism and the cascading hearts are so familiar this time of year. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Hope the snow heading our way isn't heading northward. Stay safe!

Nice. I think this might be your first journaling page you shared. What a lovely layout. I particularly like the newsprint tree. Ouch $80 for a journalling bible. That's crazy.
