Handwritten Bible journaling

1 Corinthians 3:9
Labourers together with God.
In quoting or paraphrasing Oswald Chambers - God engineers everything:
wherever He puts you - your one great aim is to pour out a 
wholehearted devotion to Him in that particular work -
no matter how menial the task or labor.
I have since changed my attitude about daily tasks - especially with housework
which I particularly do not like - and it does make
the tasks alot easier and the end result alot prettier.
So my very own handwriting - Gasp I know.
I decided to give it awhirl and I'm feeling
pretty good with it.
My handwriting really isn't that bad until I try
to do something on a page with it
and then like a clutch hitter-
I choke. 
In fact, the handwriting actually
 went better than the stamping did.
Sigh.
I used enamel paint and Panda Eight embellishment and a punched heart.

Background paper that's a photo

By Studio Calico of course, and its New York
which is perfect as I gotta a couple
of grands in Brooklyn.
 Worked that badge in - points for that.
 I layered and layered with a mix of Studio Calico and
Paper Issues and also dug out the Studio Calico stamp,
stamped with black ink on white cardstock and colored it in with my 
American Crafts pink pen.
Love the look and the sentiment works because
Lou loves hanging at the Root's cafe.
The photo is sooooo pretty and delicate
and I picked out the colors
from there.
Lou is manly enough to do pink.

Stencil frenzy

I have been in a frenzy lately and this time
it's my pal Holli's fault.
She gave me the stencil - Tim Holtz arrows.

 I wanted a little dimension and color
so I mixed blue paint with the molding past.
 And decided to smear it over each and every one of them.
 On the entire page - which is going to be 8.5x11.
 Since I got carried away with the mixing I used
the leftovers to make dots on this page - that was going to
be THE page but I liked the other better.
 See those little stars???
They came in this month's Studio Calico kit and
when I tore open the package - they went
everywhere.
And I liked where they landed to I glued them all down.
one.by.one.
 My homemade enamel dots.
 The title. Sigh.
I didn't think of bounce til I glued down hop - which
is a QK cookie cutter font- cosmopolitan.
 Again with the chaos and I love.
After all Lou is bouncing around in a cage so......
This time I did add a bunch more layers and kept
the embellishments down to a mild roar.
I also mounted this on kraft cardstock and matted the
photo the same - along with some navy c/s.

Looks like Lou was having a blast.

Stamping Frenzy

I believe I may have used them all. 
LOL.
Actually there are Studio Calico, Creative Cafe, Amy Tangerine,
Recollections and Dear Lizzy.



I actually love the chaos. 
Do you remember QK Stillettos alpha font??
I know it fits perfect in that space.
The hearts were stash from many kits ago and
they look great on the page.
Changed it up to 8.5x11 and mounted it on
black cardstock which makes it totally pop and I used
the reverse side of the paper to mat
the photo along with black cardstock - I thought
about layering more but I felt it
would detract from that lovely photo.
Of Sam.
And his blue eyes.
