Today I would like to share with you step by step of how I used the June Grace Box kit to journal in the book of Esther.
When I saw the cards included in the June kit, I immediately thought about Esther's dilemma and decision in chapter 4:13-16. The survival of her family was in her hands. Esther accepted the challenge and proved brave. Her final words in verse 16 are "...and if I perish, I perish." She accepted her fate and many people hail Esther as a hero.
To start my pages, first I gathered my supplies. Then I painted a light pink and mustard gold across my pages.
Once it was dry, I painted some orange across my pages. I used the orange twist paint and Illustrated Faith paint it card to apply the paint.
Next, I chose some of my favorite stamps from the kit and stamped the X background stamp across my pages. I chose to used the "blessed assurance" quote and stamped on the right side of my page in the journaling column.
Next, I used a paperclip to clip the "trust in the Lord" card on the left hand side of my page. I added a few die cuts and a custom word sticker to my pages.
I used a tab punch to punch out two tabs from a journaling card included in the kit. I loved the pattern so much that I just couldn't wait to use it. I added a tab to both of my pages and then finished up my pages by journaling and adding a few more stickers.
My journaling reads: "Go and gather all the jews and fast for me".
