The Lord is my Shepherd

I created this mini book on the 23rd psalm for my mother-in-law:


Sheep again! punched ones this time.  The backround is sponged distress inks, spattered with water then sprayed with pearl cosmic shimmer mist. 





Its a concertina book and fun to make.

 The psalm inspired this page in my art journal:

I like to read my bible in the amplified version sometimes and this psalm is wonderful in this version.  Here are a few extracts:

The Lord is my Shepherd to feed, guide and shield me 
He refreshes and restores my life (my self)
You anoint my head with oil; my (brimming) cup runs over
and through the length of my days the house of the Lord [and His Presence] shall be my dwellling place.

How wonderful is that?  As we head into Christmas lets reflect on the wonder of Jesus being born all those years ago, and the wonder of His Presence with us today.
