"She is Clothed in Strength and Dignity"

Today's Bible Journaling page needs to source some folks, so here's a quick share. Be sure to visit the links and show your support.

I was inspired by Jann Gray Saulsberry. She did a gorgeous page (with a tutorial) in Isaiah with a mixed media lady that I loved! Jann is even hosting a giveaway for the awesome stamp and die set that she used to make it. Not having any funky tools like that I remembered a pin that I saved for later to try. Gabrielle Pollacco generously shares the template for this little lady on her blog along with a tutorial how to do a mixed media art piece with it. The template prints on an 8x11 page and so in order to use it in my Bible, I shrunk it down (I used my Print Shop program, so I don't have a percentage for you). Tiny cutting was involved, but so worth it, as you can see.

I didn't have the colour of papers that I had envisioned for her, so I found the musical score paper on the Far Far Hill blog and the pretty prints on Amy J Delightful's blog. I didn't want to play around with the text too much and so, like Gabrielle's piece, I used the words in her skirt. I used a pigment pen (Staedtler Pigment Liner 0.1) for the details and pink watercolour pencil (Art 101) for the background. I'm pretty happy with it!

Love this girl! Really love how you took inspiration from different places and brought it all together in a piece that is uniquely YOU!
