"I remember the days of old; I meditate on all that you have done; I ponder the work of your hands. I stretch out my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you like a parched land. Selah" -Psalm 143: 5-6 (ESV)
I love using coloring pages for art journals! The longest time spent is coloring but you can do that anywhere at anytime. This page probably took 10 mins with a basic blue splattered background and then glued on coloring bits. All of the pieces came from different coloring pages that I pieced together.
I did tape the verse over at the top but when I when I took it off the tape ripped the text off the page (I will not be using that tape again). I printed the verse I was using on a sticker label and it worked perfect! Good reminder if that happens to you! It also works if you want to do a page layout but your idea might cover up the verse you want to use.
