Here's a quick overview of the process I did for my #mercy page:
I like using simple stencils to create a variety of shapes throughout my #biblequiltjournal. Stencils are a great way to highlight titles or theme verses.
Since the stickers have been in place for a while, I couldn't shade with colored pencil underneath. I opted to use a few colors to shade and soften the edges.
I began searching for verses and adding them to the page, using similar "stitch lines" as already printed in the journal to provide some continuity.
I love how the Lord works in us as we're spending time in His Word. As soon as I wrote this verse, the phrase about approaching God's throne with confidence reminded me of a friend's prayer petition she had posted last night. She was faithful in putting her concerns about her husband's health into God's hands, releasing him into God's grace during their time of need.
My next verse reflected so well my friend's update this morning about a successful surgery and her testimony to the Lord's provision. How humbling that the Lord accepts our prayers!
Although we're a state apart, in His Mercy the Lord connected our hearts together in a time of need and prayer.
Stamps are another way to highlight words or phrases...and keep me from having to think about how I might embellish my hand-lettering another way! I love this set of alphabet stamps that clip together so the letters are already aligned before I stamp onto the page.

I added some of my favorite #washitape designed by my friend Stephanie as a finishing touch: "Wow God. Thank You!"
