Birds and Lilies


Last week I talked about my first attempt at journaling this page. Months went by, but I finally finished the correct page and tried out a new technique! I need to hear Mathew 6:26-33 frequently. Verses that tell us how greatly God cares for us, and how we do not need to be anxious. I used the 2mm Molotow liquid mask pen, added watercolors, and removed the resist (a finger and a normal eraser works well for removing the resist). This resist (mask) pen is so cool! It is very easy to apply, unlike some of the other liquid masks I have tried. When the resist is removed, it allows those areas to stay the original page color. I am so excited about this technique, I will do a tutorial sometime in the next month.

Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. -Mathew 6:26-33
