Hello there! Today I’ve got another round up of my entries in the 100 Days of Bible Promises Devotional Journal by Shanna Noel! I’m way behind on sharing so I’ll keep this short and sweet- showing you what I’ve used for each day’s entry 🙂 Ready?!
Day 15- Taking Thoughts Captive. As an introspective and analytical person this one is always a timely reminder for me! I used a quote from Lysa TerKeurst’s bible study Finding I AM, “as a woman thinks, so she acts”. Some of my entries are photographed prior to journaling, but for this entry I kept it blank. I had plenty of time placing those alpha stickers to let the Scripture sink in 😉
For supplies I used a mix of the Tiny Colorful Alphas from Illustrated Faith and some Studio Calico color theory alpha stickers, the 12×12 fundamental sticker sheet from the You Are Loved collection, Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron, a Tim Holtz stencil, Ranger ink blending tool and a Faber Castell brush pen in Phthalo Green. Then I topped it all off with some Illustrated Faith enamel hearts.
Day 16- God’s Power in You. I saw Jill Drangsholt use this cute little Print & Pray robot set from Elaine Davis, the Wonderfully Wired Journal Kit, and knew I wanted to use them as well. I used a few more enamel hearts, another stencil with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink, an ink blending tool, the Tiny Colorful alphas as well as those larger alphas from Studio Calico.
Do you see a theme? I tend to use what’s already on my desk for each entry instead of trying to reinvent the wheel every day. It works well because, from one page to the next, the colors are pretty similar. This make it possible to use the same supplies over and over!
Day 17- He supplies all your needs. Amen!
This was the second day I used the 100 Days Toolbox Vol. 1 printables from the Print & Pray Shop. If you’re into pulling one word out of each day, it’s a great set to get with the theme of each day printed in this cool typewriter font.
I used the collage papers that come as a free download when you purchase the book here along with a Heidi Swapp triangle stencil and Faber Castell brush pen in Dark Naples Ochre. I topped it off with some puffy star stickers from Pinkfresh Studio and the washi tape from the Illustrated Faith devotional kit, Only One You.
Day 18- Worry…or peace? This was my first attempt with watercolor in the book. I did not prep my page, but did try to use only a little water- it warped but was otherwise a success. I used a few Neocolor II water soluble crayons in Golden Ochre, Salmon, Purple and Veronese Green.
I also flipped through my stash of stamps and pulled out the set from the Doodles by Faith devotional kit designed by Elaine Davis– so fun, right?! I layered some It Is Well washi tape (just the polka dot portion) and used the tiny colorful alphas to help build my title, again using the 100 Days Toolbox printable from the Print & Pray Shop.
Day 19- Trust in the Lord. (This is the theme I’ve been noticing as I work through this devotional book- God is good and I can trust Him in ALL things.)
Art wise- this is where it starts to go downhill. I was still on a mixed media kick and went to town with the Golden Ochre Neocolor crayon. I didn’t love how that tuned out and covered it with layer after layer of acrylic paint. I mostly used white but also some Robin’s Egg Blue and Jade paint (from Target). I stamped, washi-ed, and painted my heart out trying to revive this guy.
While it’s certainly not my favorite looking, I did enjoy the time I spent soaking in His reliability ❤
Day 20- God’s Word is alive.
I was a bit gun shy having had a major mixed media meltdown the day before so I kept it simple with some older kit elements (from the Word Nerd devo kit) and bits from the 100 Days Art Elements in the Print & Pray Shop.
Again, I don’t love this entry but I think it’s because of that same muted color scheme as the day before. I have to remember that I’m the boss of this book and can use whichever colors I like- even if they’re not found in the original artwork. And remember- YOU are the boss of your book too! 😉
Day 21- Are you content? Today I realized my contentment and lack of grumbling is not possible by my power alone. That is certainly not my default! But when Paul penned this passage while bound in chains in jail he wasn’t drawing from his own strength, but God’s. And yes, my participation is required, but contentment will not come by my will alone. ❤
I loved Shanna’s artwork on this page. So much that I didn’t want to include much other than than my journaling. I did end up using this adorable bike from the Bright & Brave clear cuts pad, the Illustrated Faith highlighter washi a la Shanna and the stamp set from the older devotional kit Free to Flourish.
And that’ll do it for this round. I’ll be back soon to get us caught up on the rest of my entries! See you then!
