Let's Faithbook Today!
What is Faithbooking? Simply put: scrapbooking while including our faith :) Our resident expert in this field is Debbie Buckland who was introduced a few weeks ago. She is back today to show us another project where photos are not necessary, but a journaling pen and a favorite bible verse are. It's a stress reliever to not have to use a picture sometimes; Give it a try :)
Debbie said:"I used the picture as a spring board. It was more like a harvest picture and it is also Autumn here in New Zealand at the moment.
I loved the orange and reds in the picture so worked off that as a colour ref.... Well kind of ;)
The background paper is a plain white sheet - I then used the script cuttlebug embossing folder with a rolling pin instead of the cuttlebug to make an empression on the paper. This made the effect of a half done embossing look. Shabby/grungy. I then got out my ink pads and drew with them the forms of roses and leaves and other wipes of colours."
Other products used to make Debbie's handmade flowers were:
Fiskars Round n Round L Squeeze Punch
Fiskars Sunburst Border Punch
Value Craft red ribbon
Heidi Grace chipboard letters
"The Scripture Matt 9:37-38 is a theme at our church at the moment and a good reminder that people are open to hear the gospel. All you have to do is read them, If they ask or you are prompted by God or the timing is just right. Test the waters with a relevent question. It doesn't always have to be a full on hell verses heaven thing. Could be as simple as "Ever thought of going to church?"
I don't like forcing people to hear the gospel. The closest thing to "bible bashing" I've ever go was hitting my flat mate with a bible so that he'd stop tickling me.
All the best.
May this page inspire and bless you."
