Leaves are Changing a Bible Journaling Page using my Faith Impressions Gel Press Kit
“As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God.” – Psalm 42:1
While reading this verse, all I could could about was a hot summer day, that end of summer where you are just so ready for the crisp fall air, something different, a change, relief…. are you understanding the spiritual undertone here?
I’ve been living a hard season. It’s kinda getting better, kinda like a cool day in summer, like a tease as to what’s to come… but the relief isn’t quiet here yet.
I wanted to journal this verse by creating fall leaves and pray for change, for thirst to be quenched in this season of life, YOU are what I long for LORD.
I knew the Faith Impressions Gel Press Kit would help me do be therapeutic and create something pretty, so I grabbed it and started playing.
We serve a LIVING God!
He is capable of blowing life into any situation.
When providing relief and the seasons change to colder weather.
He also provides beauty in nature.
He is a giving God, the giver of all good things.
I love how the Gel Press captures the beauty of nature.
All the paint dancing differently across the page.
The textures and colors.
This page is wonderful to me, the leaves are just gorgeous.
All different, all unique, all beautiful.
Here is how I created the page:
I picked some paint I thought went with fall and leaves. I Used some Illustrated Faith Paints and Studio Calico paints.
Layering a few different colors on the Faith Impressions Gel Press “double sided press” and giving a bounce with the brayer to blend the colors, it created a pretty fall mixture.
I pressed it onto some card stock.
I’m loving Hammermill 80lb Copy Cover!
It does have a super smooth coating like feel to it, so if that’s not your thing, then this paper might not be for you. I know many like to use some sort of mixed media paper.
After hitting it with my heat tool (I have this one, but any hair dryer would work too!) I roughly outlined a simple leaf shape with an Illustrated Faith .65 Precision Journaling Pen. I attached the card stock to the journaling bible with an adhesive tape runner and just pressed down onto the page (who ever invented these is an awesome person!)
I journaled with that IF Pen I mentioned above and page is finished.
I didn’t want to get complicated here. As you can see simple can be pretty too!
Thank you for allowing me to share my page with you. I hope it inspires you to create something beautiful and remember that GOD is always with you through those changing seasons of life.
Now go Create something beautiful!
