Faith Friday #2

Today is Faith Friday and that means I have another Faith based project to share.
 For a few months I have been researching the whole idea of Bible Journaling.  I knew I didn't want to do this type of artwork in my regular, everyday study Bible, so I started researching Bibles.  I looked at Bibles online and decided which type I would need.  I then bought my first journaling Bible.  
With all that said, I finally bought the Bible and was ready to get started.  Not quite yet!  Something held me back from actually putting ink on to the pages.
I then attended the Fun Stampers Journey Convention and I knew why I had not started yet.  Little did I know that the things that Richard had put in the brand new Inspiration Book and Catalog was exactly what I needed.
So, a few weeks later, I have my first Bible Journaling page done.  Using my absolute favorite set of stamps and PanPastels, I created a work of art.  I am so in love with the way it turned out.  Here it is:
So I used the four sets from the Slice of Life Collection and Black Licorice ink to stamp the fruit.  I then used the masking technique to get the fruit to look like they were behind and in front of each other.    I used the PanPastels in the Rich Sorbet pallette to create the blue background.  I used a combination of colored pencils and PanPastels to color the fruit.
Here is a closer look at what the fruit looks like:
Lastly, I wrote in the Fruits of the Spirit, one on each piece of fruit. 
I have lots of ideas in my head, so please check back next Friday for another Faith based piece.  Enjoy!
