Scripture Challenge - Temptation

The word this week was TEMPTATION. I used a little more symbolism in my 6 X 6 layout this week. I tried to give my page the cold feeling these verses called for so I kept it mostly blue & white. I layered a piece of white vellum over the navy cardstock and ran them through the Big Shot using the Fiskars Raindrop texture plate before cutting it out. The embossing looks like tears. Then I wrapped the heart with fibre to represent the way we are bound by our sin when we give into our temptations and we are separated from God. Then I pierced a pin through the heart, representing the griefs mentioned in the verse.

It was most unusual that these were the verses I felt I needed to do. I am an encourager and tend to do happy and uplifting projects. As I was taking the pictures of my page I took a close-up of the embossing and found my encouragement. The raindrops which look like the tears...well...they also look like blood drops. They are the reminder that Jesus came to earth and shed His blood on the cross for us. So when we fail and give into TEMPTATION and sin...we have FORGIVENESS. I guess it was a happy and uplifting project after all! :o)

This page is filled with different textures, adding to both the complexity and depth of the message and the design. This is powerful.
