Faith Journal: Week 2 Romans 8 38-39

Happy Sunday crafty friends,
Today I am sharing my faith journal page from this past week.  It was week 2. I know as this goes, I will always be sharing after the week is over, but if you want to join along, please feel free to join the Facebook Group(link below). This past week the scripture focus was on Romans 8:31-38.

Here’s a look at my completed journal artwork. I created the frame, the cross filigree svg cut file and the banner at the bottom all in my Pazzles software.

Here is a picture of the cross. I cut it out in plain white cardstock. I then used my ink and embossing powder to give it the copper look.

Here is a photo of what the embossed cross looks like. I purposely left the finish bumpy and with some imperfections. I was thinking about the song…the “Old Rugged Cross”. I did add a few Queen and Company gems I had in my stash.  I once again used papers from the Paper Studio Kirby Teesdale Stack. I inked the edges of the ragged edge mat with some Chocolate ink. The oval pink and kraft mats as well as the green patterned paper are inked with some Cat’s Eye Chestnut Roan Chalk Ink.

Here is a closer look at the banner. I printed it out on plain copy paper. It wasn’t intentional but instead of printing it out on cardstock, I thought this worked well. I just bent the sides. I added some foam adhesive under the banner to give it an appropriate amount of lift.

Here is another look at the embossed cross. You can see I added some burlap ribbon underneath. I just cut some from a 2”wide spool and then trimmed the wired sides. I then pulled out a couple of layers of the threads to give the edges a bit of a frayed look.

Here’s a view of the journal with my writing for the week. It was a challenging week physically and often times when you are setting your feet on a steady course towards the Lord, you inevitably come against adversity.  But I am so grateful for His Love and steadfastness towards us.

This week's scripture: Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.

HOWEVER, do yourself a favor and read the entire chapter. This is one of my absolute favorite passages of scripture. It is IMMENSLEY INSPIRING!!!
