Glory Art 2016 no 1: Limitless

I was so glad that Patter has decided to do the Glory Art Scripture Challenge again this year.  I loved doing it last year and have made all the scripture cards into a little devotional display book which I must photograph soon so I can show you.

In the meantime the first challenge for this year was 'Limitless'.  Its so good to focus on God, on who He is, what He is like, to try and get to know Him better.  To think of God as limitless is wonderful:  think of His love for us... infinite; His grace.....beyond measure;  His power......boundless;  His mercy.....inexhaustible; His goodness.....neverending.  So when I am struggling with a problem, with tiredness, with whatever it is, I simply turn to God, think of Him as limitless and know that as I turn to Him, yield myself to Him and ask Him to help me He is there for me.  As Jesus said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible".

Here are my scripture cards:


I used to make a set of four last year, but since it is only going to be monthly instead of fortnightly this year I thought I'd do eight!  Here are the first four:


I used the same supplies for the second four:


I started off  brayering paint in a couple of shades:


Adding some stencilling:


Then I cut them up, 8 to an A4 card:


I love script stamps and the lovely backround interest they give, either faint:



 or more prominent:


The flowers are from a Kelly Panacci stamp set which I've had for years:


There is a good variety in it, with big and small flowers:


So each scripture cards looks very different:


Such fun to do!
