7 Gypsies Rubber band album...hybrid altered album

Challenge 18 at JS was to do a page about a goal. As I have been studying about being holy and striving to figure out what that looks like in my life I thought I would do a mini album with the verses I am reading and some quotes that really speak to me. This will be a great reminder to me of my goal to be holy. And believe me I need moment to moment reminders on this!!!

I used a 7 gypsies rubber band album and then some basic grey and we r memory keepers papers. Lots of fun ribbon and embellys and tags. I took the inside pages which were cream and used a technique I just learned over at 2 peas. Jennifer McGuire is doing a wonderful video class on inking over there for the rest of the month....and it's free! Check it out here Inking Class
I took distress ink and the inking tool and worked the spiced marmalade ink all over the paper. I love the way it looks.....very cool and easy. I even inked one of the flowers up in this way.
Looks like rain again today....more time to scrap...but the kids are bouncing of the walls!!!

Have a blessed day!!

Holy and Perfect

Just a heads up that I posted on my other blog today All is grace about what it means to be holy and perfect in this world. I feel God calling me to study this deeper and will be looking into 1 Peter the next couple of days. I am working on a mini book for the verses I am pondering and chewing on....I can't wait to share it with you!

but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct because it is written, "Be holy, for I am holy". 1 Peter 1:15-16
