LOVE - the Real Power

Hello Friends,

The bible journaling challenge at His Kingdom Come for February is based on 1 John 4:10:

"This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins."

Tonya teaches us how to melt down our Gelatos and use them as a spray in her instructional video. I didn't spray mine on, but it was great to find a way to use up that last bit of a stub stuck in the tube. I simply painted my yellow Gelato liquid onto my prepped pages. I highlighted the scripture with a metallic pink Gelato.
The page to the right of the scripture had a devotional article. I don't like to cover the scripture text, but I don't mind covering the inserted stories. I did want to keep the title of the article - "Real Power".
I made a heart with the same pink Gelato and blended it into the yellow with a wet paint brush. I went around the heart with white Gesso and a black permanent marker. I also add dabs and streaks of white around the page.
I wrote the word Love and did some doodling in the letters. Once all of that was done, the page still seemed rather bland and empty. I got out a couple of stencils and added flourishes (red Gelato) and butterflies. I coloured the butterflies with markers.
Thanks for visiting my blog today. I appreciate you dropping by and look forward to reading your comments.

Blessing hugs,

I don't have any gelatos- too expensive here in the Philippines! Based on the page you made, seems nice to use on Bible pages. Well done! patsy
