Dance Like David and More Texturizing

Reading through 2 Samuel this week and I LOVE the verse where it says... "David, wearing a linen ephod danced before the Lord with all his might, while he and the entire house of Israel brought up the ark of the Lord with shouts and the sound of trumpets." 2 Samuel 6: 13-15. I knew I had to journal about this verse. I went through in my mind the techniques that I knew how to do and determined that stenciling a background with someone dancing would do the trick. She reminds me of a ballet dancer though. I attached a decorative border to the side of the page too and I think it goes nicely.

This is the next texturizing page I have been playing with. This technique is extremely relaxing!

Hugs everyone and happy creating! Happy long weekend too!

I love that Scripture. Your texture work is fabulous.

I love that scripture too, and his heart before God.

Your art journal page is a sweet interpretation.

It also made me think of the movie "You've Got Mail". Tom Hanks character looks at a picture in Meg Ryan's bookstore of her and her mom, "What are you doing?" he says. She replies, in a very matter of fact manner, "Twirling." (loved it!)

I just wanted to tell you that I have been visiting your blog recently and I am so inspired by your artwork. I love the "texturing" thing you are doing. It has a great calming feel to it.
Many blessings to you :)

Lovely pages Kelly, The dancer goes really well with the decorative border. I love the inspiration coming from passages you have read.
The textured face is lovely too. It does look relaxing, maybe that is something I can try this week.
