Happy Mother’s Day!! Jenn here with a Bible journaling post. With today being Mother’s Day I really wanted to commemorate it by journaling Proverbs 31.
Before I jump into my page design and how to I would like to let you know my sweet chick was deeply inspired by our very own Ashley aka Magmagandme. I first started by sketching out my girl and added a short fun hairstyle to mimic my own. Once I was satisfied with my drawing I went in with the floral stamps and added a floral crown by masking the flowers I wanted to be in the front. Lindsey has a great video on the blog where she used the same technique to create a beautiful Mother’s day card. After stamping I drew over my pencil lines with my Faber Castell pitt pen. Next I used those great alphas from just my type to stamp out the words “strength” and “dignity” and hand lettered the rest of the verse. Then I added a short prayer and used the “Father” stamp from names of God to start my prayer. As I finished up the prayer I noticed there was a wonky space so I added another floral from the floral set…because seriously can one really have too many flowers?? Finally I watercolored, popped in some fun highlights with my white signo gel pen, added some fun washi tape to my chicks shirt, a tab, and added a couple word stickers.
Proverbs 31 has always been such an overwhelming chapter of the Bible to me. I honestly feel like I can never live up to that perfect woman described in those verses, but I am learning that I don’t have to. When I allow my Father to come in and fill up my spirit He provides the strength, courage, stamina, wisdom and dignity I need each and every day. With Him I am clothed in strength and dignity!
