Glory Art - Representative

This is the next set of pages in my Glory Art album. You can find the Glory Art challenge here at Triple the Scraps. Patter Cross has a beautiful post about this challenge's word and details about her lovely art. I enjoyed pondering this idea after I read Patter's blog entry about being a REPRESENTATIVE of Christ.  I thought about different verses and hymns that related to this concept. I selected Galatians 2:20 because I realize I can't represent Him adequately myself.  I kept singing this verse as a scripture song: "I have been crucified with Christ, I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."

This study also made me keep singing "More Like the Master," so I needed to include this old hymn on the facing page which I think will help me focus on these attributes of Christ that I want to increase in my life: More meekness, humility, zeal to labor for him, purged from sin, more of His Spirit, more love for others, and more self denial.

Both of my backgrounds were made with applying Flaxen inkpad directly to paper in swirling motion and the Sunflower and Carnation pink inks with crumpled plastic wrap. I used an older Technique Tuesday to stamp the word. The girl silhouette (from CTMH "Dreamer") was stamped with Slate ink and outlined with a thin black marker. The foliage and floral silhouettes (retired CTMH "Treasure Life") were stamped with Garden Green and outlined, too.  I used two different Spellbinders dies to frame the verse from Galatians.

I'm sharing this project with the following challenges:

This is really great. I love handwritten prayer you included in the first pic. Thank you for joining our Challenge last week at Word Art Wednesday. The current challenge is midway and hope you join us again. Leaving you with God's Word to ponder on from Romans 15:4 and it says, "For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope." God bless always!
