Bible Journaling Stamped Background by Karen

Hello!  Karen here today to share with you some Bible Journaling using SRM's Stamps & Markers. 

Many passages in scripture use light as a symbol or to refer to Jesus. In this passage in John 11, Jesus reminds His disciples, who are fearful of returning to Judea, to walk in the light and they will not stumble. I used the  "The Lord is my Light" stamp set to remind me to walk in the light and stay focused on Jesus when faced with fear or anxiety. 

To create the patterned background, I simply used a sun stamp from the set and stamped it repeatedly in oranges and yellows, heavier on the margin and lighter as it covered the text and the remainder of the page. Turning the sun in multiple directions with each stamping will keep the background from becoming too linear.  Fill in all the spaces with repeated stamping in gradually lighter hues to make a full and interesting background.

 I cut a smaller piece of white cardstock for the margin and stamped it with the same sun, but in a lighter yellow. On top of that I stamped the sentiment and a border from the set. The lighter block, with just a bit of orange border with a LePlume Marker, sets the sentiment up for a powerful contrast.

How and where will you use this stamp set?

For this journaling page I used:

The Lord is my Light SRM Faith Stamp Set | LePlume II Brush Marker
