And there came a voice to him, saying, Rise up, Peter, kill and eat. ~ Acts 10:13
My Divine Design project this month is a gift for my sweet husband who is sitting in a hunting blind as I type. This is a journal for him to keep track of what he hunts, where, with whom and how they did that day. He’s kept logs of his waterfowl hunting effort and success for the Department of Wildlife for years, but those get mailed back in at the end of the season. I think he’ll write stuff down for himself, as well, given the space. Secretly, I’m hoping to use this as evidence next fall when he says, ‘ah, babe….I haven’t been huntin’ all that much this year!’ Though, if I’m fair, I knew what I was getting into with him when we were dating. He’s always been a big outdoor/hunting type of fanatic.
Imagine his delight when Wes came across Acts 10:13 several years ago in a men’s study, well it might have been a study…I think it was probably Phil Robertson‘s fault. There it was in black and white, the Lord’s permission to hunt, wiping away the confines of Old Testament law of what was and was not clean meat for consumption! What loving, submissive wife could argue with ‘I feel called’…
I used my Bird Watching stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms, the Saturday Evening Post collection stamped with Espresso Adirdonack ink and then lightly colored with Copic Marker. The background paper and the journal covering paper are from the Thomas Kinkaid Masculine Paper Pack (also from CHF). They provided the perfect backdrop for the stamped image. The main image was cut with the Spellbinders Label One die. I printed ‘Acts 10:13’ off and accented the bottom right corner with a build-a-brad. The keychain bookmark is from the Tim Holtz collection that I picked up at the Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie, TX last week. I used an elastic cord from 7gypies to hold it closed. The actual verse is printed on the first page inside the journal.
You can see other Divine Design inspiration from Angel Wilde, Nancy Morgan and Jami Sibley. They posted their beautiful projects over a week ago. If you want to read about the original Divine Design challenge, you can do that HERE. We’d love to have you join us. If you are looking for more scripture inspired work, you can do that at Triple the Scraps from my friend, Patter Cross. She has a wonderful Bible based project she’s been working on all year. Her wisdom and insight always speaks to me.
Thanks for stopping by. See you tomorrow!
