'Be Still and know that I am God'
Ps 46: 10There's no way that we can get to know God unless we take the time to stop and be still before Him. If we are all in turmoil inside we are not going to be able to focus on anything. We will not be able to see Him or hear Him or receive any guidance from Him. When God tells us to be still He is telling us to cut the turmoil, focus on Him. In that stillness we will see and know that He is God and that in turn will help us put things in perspective. In stillness we gain peace and strength.
Here are a couple of journal pages, both in purple, purple and yellow which are the colours for this week's challenge at Summer of Colour.
The backround was done with a scoochy sponge which gave a really cool stippled effect.
I stamped a script then I added texture paste through a stencil and with the stencil still in place and the paste wet I added the colour. I was inspired to use a stencil brush rather than a sponge by Leandra at PaperArtsy where the current challenge is on stencils:
I only had one purple so mixed up my second purple but I splodged way too much out:
Inevitably I had loads of paint left over so I decided to scrape it on another page. This is what came out. I scraped it on thickly making extra scrapes to get the white marks. I think it looks like the opposite of stillness!
I quite like the effect but am not sure what else I'm going to do with this page:
This page is facing the 'Be Still' page in my art journal so I think I might keep it like this and call it 'Turmoil' :)
