Finally – I’ve gotten another page in my Faithbook completed! I had some thoughts rumbling around in my head, and the new stamps from Wplus9 totally inspired the page! (If you’d like to see #1 in the series, click HERE.)
Copic Art Journal Page
The video voiceover spends a bunch of time talking about my issues (YouTube is cheaper than therapy, right?) – but basically, I colored a ton of images from the brand new Wplus9 sets Going Places and Wishing You on Neenah cardstock. Then I stamped the balloons on a 12×12 piece of white cardstock (you can use almost any white paper when airbrushing), used a Copic airbrush, as well as Copic refills and colorless blender on fabrics for the bottom section. Next I pieced the colored images on top using dimensional adhesives. Check out the video below, or click HERE to watch in HD on YouTube.
For the journalling on this page, I started by writing “Your rocks are not my rocks” over and over in black pen in the dark area at the bottom. Just to remind myself that I am not to pick up the words others cast at me! ;0) Those words deliberately disappear into the rocky hills, leaving the emphasis on the white words on the hillsides. That section, which is blurred out because it gets a bit personal, is all about who I am in God’s eyes. Affirmations of Who I belong to. And Whose opinion matters! And recommitting myself to trust in what He says, and dropping the rocks and monkeypoop others hurl my way. It felt good just writing all that out, even though the white pen on the light green hills isn’t terribly readable; the act of writing it was a prayer and a release.
I hope you’re being inspired to do some art journalling about your faith; I talked with a number of women about it this past week in California – and many of us have wanted to do this for a long time. We need to just get started, right?
