This cross template is one I turn to for documenting the simple truths of God's love, strength and comfort.
"Christ's love compels us." II Corinthians 5:14
Here's one I started in my Monthly Bible Quilt Journal. I played around with the purple washi tape, adding more until I decided until I'd cover the background to give the cross and scripture boxes more dimension.
It stayed like this for a couple weeks because I wasn't sure what I wanted to do to fill in the cross.
I realized the next time I turned to this page that the hymn "The Old Rugged Cross" kept coming to mind. I found the song in an old hymnal of my Mom's and glued torn pieces into layers on the cross, finishing it off with a torn ribbon.
We're all tattered and broken with layers of sin. Jesus gave HIS all so we could be complete IN HIM.
What have you created with the cross template? If you haven't done one yet, what inspires you?
