PPF: It is Finished!

I finished reinforcing my endpaper 
in my Altered Book Lover,
which I started because of the 
amazing Elizabeth of Altered Books.
She teaches many things,
including how to get started
So far, that's where we are.

I'm sorry, Elizabeth, I'm not a 
very good student!
I get so happy painting and pasting!
You've got some wonderful students 
who are really great at 
following directions! 
I covered this page with gesso first,
and then used gel medium,
glue stick and white glue to attach
my collage elements.
All of them worked fine! 

Today is Good Friday and 
the reading for today is from John 18 and 19
about the Crucifixion of Jesus.

Jesus uttered, "It is finished,"
after three hours on the cross,
three hours of darkness.

Leonard Ravenhill, an evangelist, wrote:
There was an historian in Egypt
at the time who wrote this, 
"In this awful mid-day 
that has become midnight,
either God is suffering or 
Somebody He loves is suffering."
That was pagan testimony.

sneak peek
