Matthew 11:28 by Diane Zechman

Hello Ai friends and happy Thursday!
 
Today I am sharing a different project than I normally make with my Ai images. I started bible journaling a year ago and I've had Ai's Madge (1549) in mind all year to use for the Matthew 11:28 verse...“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."
 


Madge is perfect for this verse...she illustrates how we all, at times, feel.  We simply need to put our trust in Him.  He gives what no one else can give- rest from our daily problems and the burden of our sins.
 
I stamped Madge with Stazon Black ink (no page prep done) and colored her with Prismacolor pencils, blending them with Gamsol. She was stamped again onto patterned paper and I cut out her shirt to paper piece it. I also used a small scrap of the same paper to make a little "tab" at the top of the page.
 
Here's my full page...
 

I hope you liked this different Ai project today and it inspires you to try some bible journaling too!
Have a great day and… happy stamping!

  2. This is fantastic! I've just recently started Bible Journaling, and am in love with mixing creative time and devotion time together. I had Madge years ago, she finally gave up and wouldn't print anymore :((
    She absolutely perfect for this scripture.........I might have to reinvest in that stamp again.
