This week it was Gillian's turn to set the challenge for the SALT team and she gave us "God's Promises." You can read her description below:
"So many times we are guilty of breaking promises, or have been on the other end of a broken promise, but what a wonderful blessing to know that when God makes a promise it's steadfast. We'd love to see what Promise from God you choose to use as your basis for your challenge so leave us a comment when you are finished your piece, so that we and others may see your work."
I chose to create a chipboard tag book for this challenge. I thought it would be a wonderful way to capture a few scripture verses that focus on some of God's promises. I used every other page to state the promise, for example, Hope, and then used the opposite page for a scripture verse.
This was a big project, using many different elements so I won't list them all here but I'll cover the basics. I used Basic Gray paper, "Perhaps", to cover all of my chipboard. The wonderful thing about the Basic Gray 6"x6" pads is that all of the papers coordinate so achieving a consistent look is a peice of cake! The huge time saver was being able to use a book of pre-printed scripture verses that I picked up at Walmart months ago. All I had to do was cut and paste (and PS - Anyone have any good ideas on how to attach vellum with some sort of glue that isn't visible?? A glue stick worked fairly well but I still had some issues...) I then used all sorts of embellishments and images to decorate my book. The best part? See that very cool face on the front cover of the book? That was handmade by my sweetest friend, and SALT team member who set today's challenge, Gillian! (I have more to share on her fantastic creations later this week...)
I have many pictures to share of the book, a few more below, and as soon as I can get them uploaded to my online photo album I'll pass along the link. All of us at SALT would love to have you play along and create something based on this week's challenge. Please visit the site and leave us a comment with a link back to your blog or online gallery. Thanks!!
Looking forward to seeing what you all create!!
