Proverbs 4:23

 Bible Journaling.
Getting back to the basics in life.
The foundation of my faith.
Getting back to where God wants me to be.
Taking that step to put acrylic paint . . .
onto a Bible page . . .
wow! it’s a great big step!
But one I felt I had to do.
It starts with finding a verse that means
something special to you.
Or a verse that speaks to you in your
daily devotions.
I focused on Proverbs 4:23 –
to guard my heart!
I began by prepping my page with some clear gesso.
I just spread it over the entire page.
I don’t mind if a little of what I’m doing bleeds
through to the back of the page,
I just don’t want it to be overwhelming.
So prep.

The verse focuses on the heart,
so I traced out a couple of hearts.
And since I’m a tangler –
I tangled a little line of hearts, as well.

I used Jane Davenport ink water brushes

to add the color.

My handy-dandy tool to make the spreading lines?

A drinking straw :).

I made the heart area real soupy with water,

added the color one at a time,

and blew like crazy through the straw.

Aiming where the lines went.

I tangled a small line of perfs around the inner heart,

and wrote the word guard.

A super simple page.

And I really like the way it turned out.

A beautiful reminder to . . .

“Guard your heart,

for from it flow the springs of life.”
