I Am Forgiven: Mixed Media Art Journal Layout
Asking for forgiveness is something that has never come easy for me. I have had a lot of practice since since becoming a wife but especially as a mother. No one likes to admit they are wrong but for some reason I really struggle with this. So many times I have spoken out of frustration to my children or raised my voice. And later, I have to apologize. It is humbling to have to ask my children to forgive me. Even my 2 year old. Usually, I find myself struggling to control my frustration when I feel overwhelmed. Recently, I have been praying that I will be slower to respond in these situations. To be calm and hear my children out.
I am so thankful that children are full of love and forgiveness. That despite all my failures they are so quick to hug me and cry with me and tell me that they love me. It reminds me of Gods unfailing love for me. He is always there forgiving me even though I continuously fail.
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins,he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Creating the Journal Layout
I started this altered book/art journal in my recent class. I am just in love with these TH paper dolls that are all the rage. I don’t know why but I love cutting them out and coloring in the images. And the sentiment was sent to me by my childhood best friend.
For this background, I used Paper Artsy Infusions and some Lindy’s. I used a Christy Tomlinson Unity stamp as well as a Arabic Script stamp. I layered a lot of scraps from my table. Since it is Tea Day, I decided to include a tea bag. I stamped my tea bag with my hand-carved mermaid stamp.

I can’t believe it is Tea day again, I am playing along with Elizabeth and all the other Tea ladies.
Today for my beverage, I am sharing another Teavana Blend, Maharaja Chai Oolong / Samurai Chai Mate. It is very spicy, flavorful and yummy! Look at all those pretty colors in there.
Happy Tea Day,
