Christ’s way is not only the right way, but ultimately the only way to hope and joy. — Howard W. Hunter
My original intention with these scripture journal pages was to share them on Sundays. While I have been finding my inspiration for each page on Sunday, I find that I don’t seem to be able to complete my pages on Sundays, better yet actually create a blog post. I now have a solution to my problem. I will post the page I create each week on the following Sunday.
This past Sunday, I really wanted to create a page focusing on hope. Not because I’ve been feeling very hopeful lately, I haven’t. What I am trying to do is find my way back to a more hopeful place. I began looking for inspiration in the scriptures. No doubt, there are a lot of scriptures about hope. However, none of them seemed to have the message I was seeking.
Luckily, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has a great mobile app called Gospel Library (links at the bottom of this post). I decided to make use of the app and do a search on hope. That is when I found the perfect inspiration. To be honest, I probably should have begun my search with Howard W. Hunter, as I always love his talks on Christ. His love for the Savior just fills each talk and they always inspire me.
I finally created my Scripture Art Journal page yesterday. I really like how it turned out. I think I really achieved a look of hope with this page.
I chose the AXR Neverland Shadow font as I felt it had a very artsy feel to it while allowing me to create the word “hope” large enough for me to clip different papers to the word. I used mostly light colors because they make me think of Spring and Spring really is the season of hope. At least I think so. The background itself is a single paper. No blending papers this time, which is not normal for me. There are three different painty pieces layered under the word. I chose nature images (butterflies, flowers, sun) as they often make me think of springtime and hope. This is definitely not the most complicated page I’ve made but I really like the results.
Thank you coming to look at my latest scripture art journal page. Enjoy your Sunday and remember that this is a great day to document your memories.
