define yourself ~ from my sektchbook

good morning glories!!!

this is one of my favorite journal~watercolor pages... just a lot of bright, bold color laid down this way and that.  i am trying to be more deliberate about leaving white space, and i'm getting {only slightly} better about it.   i used a very large, bold, chisel-tipped black sharpie pen for the initial writing of letters, and outlining them black, raised ink, using the sakura glaze pen, and then doodling silver sparklies with a metallic gelly roll pen in the background of the page. 

it's one of my personal favorites.  and my hope ~ my prayer ~ is that you {beloved} will enjoy it too... 

define yourself radically as one beloved by God.
this is the true self
every other identity is an illusion.
Brennan Manning

i've committed it to memory.  
i hope you will too ~ know ~ and keep it ~
captured deep in your heart!
soli deo gloria!
joining up with the in the studio crowd here! 
happy happy friday ~ vacation  here i come!
