My Redeemer...

Hello there inky friends!  Today I'm joining my fellow Joy Clair DT for fellowship and worship. We're sharing our inspiring creations from the stamp set My Redeemer.  

This hop has a TWIST!  In order to be considered for the $25 Prize drawing, here's what you have to do:

1.  Visit EACH blog.  
2.  Find a KEYWORD on each blog that will help you build a sentence.  
3.  Send me your sentence "guess"(Click on my profile "StampingbugKerry" near the comments section and send email)
(Do NOT POST this sentence OR MY KEYWORD in the comments!)
4.  Leave a comment about my project on this post.  

Here's the blogroll to help you along the way!  

Kerry Urbatch- That's ME!

As with most of the Color By Faith collection, the sentiments draw me in.  I specifically make connections to them that relate to scripture, musical praise and worship sessions.  This set is not an exception.  When I received this set, music filled my heart...My Redeemer...Yes, it sang in my heart and the words echoed loudly.  I immediately headed to my computer so that I could get started creating.

Yes, I headed to my computer.  You see, I often create my bible journaling pages/work while listening to sermons and songs of praise.  For this particular worship session, I chose to re-read through Job, find particular scripture that spoke to me and then played Nicole C. Mullen's beautiful music on Youtube.  I played it over and over again as I worked through this piece.

Take a listen, it's one you won't forget and I'm sure, you'll soon be singing right along with her!
My worship session resulted in one of my most precious creations...and HIS hands guided every stroke and decision.
I call this little acetate sheet a "Reminder Page".  It is removeable and can be placed as a marker on any page spread I create in the future.  It's a reminder that YES, indeed, My Redeemer Lives.  I owe everything to Him!  
After journaling over and over the edge of this page as I was reading and listening to this Nicole sing, I scribbled my thoughts and prayers over and over the page.  When I was done, I watercolored some of the page (and particularly highlighted Job 19:23-29).  I stamped the hallelujah script image onto the page using clear embossing ink then applied some silver embossing powder.  
After creating the journaled portion, I cut some sun rays out of yellow cardstock then re-wrote the song on each ray of light.  
I then dripped some Pinata inks onto a sheet of acetate cut to size.  I spritzed it with alcohol and let it drip and bleed.  I sprinkled a bit of gold embossing powder in the ink before drying everything with the heat gun.  I love how the ink blended and also love that the acetate warped a bit from the heat. PERFECTLY PERFECT!  
After that, adhered the rays to the acetate with some clear glaze medium so they reached across and over the edge of the page. 

I stamped the cross and the doves, colored them with watercolor pencils then cut them out.  They were applied to the panel.
Now you might be wondering what the back-side of this acetate looks like.  Well, it's colorful, has some stripes, foam squares blobs of adhesive and even an oops on one of the rays...but... It is a reminder that everything HE creates has beauty and purpose..."Turn" your heart to God and he will show you the beauty of his love!

Thank you for stopping by to share in worship and praise with me and my fellow JC DT.  I hope you find time to immerse yourself in His word.  Whether it be through journaling, bible art, music, sermons or fellowship, SOMEONE'S sure to be drawn to His light!
