Psalms 22 & 23

Isn't it great when you do one challenge and find you have inadvertently done another one in the process. This is exactly what I seem to have done whilst doing my latest Psalm pages. They are both monochromatic so fulfill the DLP week 15 prompt as such.

For Psalm 22 I had the "eureka" moment when I realised that Jesus used the words of this King David's psalm whilst he was on the cross. So this just had to be a page of the cross. I used scraps of brown patterned papers as a background patchworked together and joined with pen stitching. My new Timmy spritzer just had to be used too.

For Psalm 23 I just thought of the green of the pastures with God as our shepherd. I used my new Timmy Latticework stencil and then 3 types of speckledness on top.
1) New speckled stamp
2) Timmy Spritzer
3) Water

Stunning pages, BJ. Love the crosses and your backgrounds. I'm a bit jealous of that lattice stencil.

Two fabulous pages. Like the collage effect on the first and the background on the second is gorgeous. Elizabeth xx

These are both beautiful BJ but I particularly like the Psalm 22 page with all its layers and colours xxx
