Scripture Saturday - Bible Journaling - Psalm 147v4

Hi Stamping Freinds!!

I created another Bible Journaling page this week. I went outside my box with this one. It didn't turn out how I had hoped, but I learned a lot along the way.

Psalm 147:4 "He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name." 

Stamps: Epic Alphabet, Back To Basics Alphabet, Sophisticated Serifs, Perpetual Birthday Calendar, Perfect Pennants, Rotary Alphabet Stamp
Ink: Night of Navy, Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Rich Razzleberry, Silver Metallic, White Craft Ink
Paper: Silver Glimmer
Accessories: Star Punch, Mini Treat Bag Framelit, Star Stencil

Here is a pic of the supplies:

I looked for starry sky images online and really liked the ones that went from dark blues to purples. That is how I chose my ink colors.

First, I simple inked up a sponge with the color and swiped it across the page going from dark blue to a bright purple.

Next, I used my Star Stencil and White Craft ink to sponge on the stars.

After the stars dried, I stamped on my words using Night of Navy ink. The small words I wrote freehand using a Pilot G-2 10 black ink pen. 

Then I used silver metallic ink to add a few more stars. These did not have the "wow" effect I was hoping for so I punch two different sizes of stars using Silver Glimmer cardstock and attached them with Glue Dots. This helped give it some of the sparkle I was looking for.

Finally, I added the scripture reference using the Rotary Alphabet stamp.

I wish I would have eliminated the bigger silver star in the center where I stamped the word "and". The Night of Navy ink does not show up well on top of the Silver Metallic ink. Also, the word "and" is too small and kind of gets lost on the page. I later changed the "and" to a larger ampersand, which I like, but the silver star totally ruins it.

Oh well. Live and learn. I tried using a marker to darken the parts that are on top of the silver, but it still doesn't show up well.

What I really need to be doing is practicing my handwriting. It needs some major sprucing up.

The best part of this whole process is I memorized another Bible verse!!! I just love that!! I can use my creativity and bring God glory at the same time. 

And I love this verse. If God knows each star by name, how much more does he not know and love us who were created in His image? So awesome to serve such an all-knowing, all-powerful God. Makes me feel loved and cared for. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
God bless!

I think your page is beautiful! I love the progression of color from top to bottom. I think I am going to give Bible Journaling a try in the new year and have been surfing Pinterest for ideas.
