Good Shepherd

Hello Bible Journaling friends!  By now you have probably seen the new Good Shepherd stamp set designed by Krista Hamrick and released in the Creative Worship line of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I'm sure that all of you have at one time or another been comforted by the 23rd Psalm.  This Psalm has been a favorite for many down through the ages and no doubt has been committed to memory at a very young age by many of you.  Good Shepherd is perfect for illustrating this Psalm as well as many other scriptures about our good Shepherd.  After seeing an illustrated version of the 23rd Psalm on Pinterest, I was inspired to create my own page.

The page was prepped with two coats of Dina Wakley Clear Gesso and stamped with the images from Good Shepherd.  The rest of the scene was lightly sketched to include the green pastures, still waters, and paths of righteousness.  Kuretake water colors were used to color the page with accents being filled in with KaiserColor Gel Pens and a white Sharpie paint pen.

The whole time I was working on this page, I was able to reflect on the fact that we have such a loving and ever present Savior who promises to walk with us at all times and to carry us as we walk through dark valleys…what a Good Shepherd we have in Jesus!

Here are the stamp sets from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps that were used to create this page:

I hope this post has been a blessing to you!  If you are walking on the mountaintop, bask in the presence of the Lord, and if you are in the valley, allow the Good Shepherd to carry you.
Thanks so much for stopping by…have a wonderful day, a blessed weekend, and a happy Father's Day!
