{Glory Art} Scripture Challenge #1 - TRUST

Happy Sunday, my friends!

Welcome to my first Scripture Challenge post of 2015!
As most of you know, 
I have been participating in Patter's Scripture Challenges for several years now.
(All previous years are listed in the Labels in my sidebar)
As you may also know...I did not complete the 2014 Challenge.
With my Mom getting sick and all...I got too far behind to catch up.
I am very excited to be starting all over again this year!

The challenge for 2015 is called {Glory Art} Scripture Challenge.
You can read all the details from Patter right HERE.
There is also a button in my sidebar.

After much thought over what format I would use this year, I have decided on tags. 
My tags will be #10 size which is 4 1/4" X 8 1/2".
The reason I'm going with this size is because I have an antique sewing machine drawer 
that will hold them beautifully.

* * * * *

The word Patter gave us to study this week is "TRUST".
I used the Scripture verse found in Proverbs 3:5a:

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart!"

It goes on, in the second part of the verse and the next, to say:

"...and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge Him
and He will make your paths straight."

When we put our focus on God, we can be confident that He will guide us in the way we should go.
What a beautiful thing it is...
to be able to completely and totally rely on God Himself to direct our path through life.
There is such peace and joy in the knowledge that we never have to face this world alone! :o)

For my tag:

I cut/tore a variety of papers, distressed and inked them, and adhered them to my tag.
The sweet image is a new release from Sushi Dolls.
I stamped the verse on white and cut it into strips.
I thought it looked great on the pretty pink brick graffiti!
I added some lace and some flowers, and finally a decorative pin!

Materials Used:
Papers: Crate Paper - Maggie Holmes;
Spectrum Noir Markers;
Stamp: itty bitty by Unity - Trust With Your Heart;
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black, CTMH - Moonstruck,
Distress Ink - Walnut Stain;
Punch: EK Success - Scalloped Scallop;
Flowers: Gift from Joy;

Here is a very traditional and beautiful version of my favorite hymn about trusting Jesus:

I think tags is a great choice. Small sized concentrations of your wonderful work. The words on the brick background really does give the fun effect of graffiti. Looking forward to seeing more. Hugs!

I love your Shabby Chic look with the lace and the page torn down the center. Like the way you did your sentiment too. Super tag! I look forward to seeing more.

Robyn said...

Yes, it is so very sweet to trust in Jesus. Also one of my favorite hymns from my childhood memories. I have not been blogging much this past year. No energy to put forth. But the last couple hours I have spent reading my blog, deciding if I did indeed want to maintain, or forget about it. I was touched by the consistency of your visits and encouragement. I think of you often and share in your precious memories of loved ones lost to this world. It was a comment from a post a couple years back, I read your invitation to share in Patter's Scripture challenge....So I am taking it on. God's timing is perfect. This is when I need the bump!! Thanks for your ongoing faith and encouragement.

Robyn said...

Your tag is terrific as well..

Vivienne Holden said...

This tag is beautiful. I'm not a fan of torn paper stuff but this combination gives your tag depth and a kind of perspective. Excellent use of the different layers....and that Sushi Doll is just too cute.
Love you - Leslie
