How’s that for a post title? Hahaha! Yes, I totally use washi tape in my Bible and I’ll show you how over the next week. The same techniques will work for your art journals or collage books or junk journals. A little washi goes a long way!
This particular page came together as part of an art journaling prompt in my FB group Tangle All Around. The prompt was to use song lyrics on a journal page. I chose to add the lyrics to one of my journaling Bibles. Yes, I said ‘Bibles’ because I actually have three I’m working in. To pass down to my children when I’m gone.
Love and Theft is a country music group whose songs I usually enjoy. This particular song just really struck a chord with me. The chorus is repeated throughout the song and not the way I show it here where I typed all the verses first. I did that to save space. Just imagine after each verse the chorus repeating Love is patient, love is kind. Love don’t care who’s wrong or right. Doesn’t envy, doesn’t boast, it doesn’t quit. It’s not selfish, it’s not proud. Love’s the noise above the loud. It never fails, it forgets and it forgives. Love wins. Love wins. It is literally I Corinthians 13, the love chapter in the Bible. Very reminiscent of Carrie Underwood’s new song also called Love Wins.
I used a sheet of scrapbook paper that I liked, and printed the lyrics straight onto the patterned side of the paper. The reverse side is plain white and makes a super surface for note taking, tangling, adding personal thoughts about the scripture, insights from God. I ‘tipped’ the page into my Bible using a strip of the always wonderful washi tape. Yep! Washi to the call!
Could it be that you need a reminder today that Love Wins? I know I need this reminder every single day. Love really does win. When we let God lead the way and we open up our hearts. Love and God wins!
