good morning glories!!!

this is one of my favorite journal~watercolor pages… just a lot of bright, bold color laid down this way and that.  i am trying to be more deliberate about leaving white space, and i’m getting {only slightly} better about it.   i used a very large, bold, chisel-tipped black sharpie pen for the initial writing of letters, and outlining them black, raised ink, using the sakura glaze pen, and then doodling silver sparklies with a metallic gelly roll pen in the background of the page. 

it’s one of my personal favorites.  and my hope ~ my prayer ~ is that you {beloved} will enjoy it too… 

define yourself radically as one beloved by God.
this is the true self
every other identity is an illusion.

i’ve committed it to memory.  
i hope you will too ~ know ~ and keep it ~
captured deep in your heart!
soli deo gloria!

  2. Leslie, I've just realized that you disappeared from my blog roll again. This time I bookmarked you. I wonder why that is happening.
