Welcome to the Color by Faith Holy Week blog hop with Joy Clair
This Holy Week we are celebrating with the stunning range of Color by Faith Stamps available from Joy Clair creating beautiful art work.
I created this Bible Journaling spread with the Reckless Love stamp set and Hosanna stamp set.
At first I messed up this page so badly, but I took a couple of days to reflect and just pray and rested in the Lord and it came together in the end.
Funny how we try and impress God with perfection when He is just happy with our hearts – after all He knows us much better than the perfection we strive for.
What does the Bible say about Hosanna? Hosanna is a word from Hebrew that is commonly used as an exclamation of adoration, praise or joy. In the Old Testament, it is applied only in scripture as “help” or “save, I pray.”
In the New Testament, the word Hosanna appears to be a “special kind of respect” referred to the one who saves.
Much like The Lord came and saved this journal page, He saves us daily from sin and imperfection – if only we call on Him.
I think the title on this page speaks to me the most. I stamped “Hosanna” in Black Versafine Onyx, then added some inking using Oxide inks. The oxide ink lightened the black ink a lot,
and offered me the perfect opportunity to add a shadow of white StazOn Pigment over it slightly off-set for a stunning end result.
I started off with layered of inking and paint on my background.
Stamped leaves and flowers onto cardstock and cut them out. A light inking on the leaves in green adds colour, but it is the white flowers that really pops against the colourful background that I love.
A few white paint pen dots and graphite scribbles finishes off this page.
Until next time – Hosanna to the King!
Wishing you a blessed Easter, peace and love.
