Normally my bible sits on my nightstand next to my bed but because I've been doing some Bible Art Journaling, it's been in the Command Center.
Needless to say, it's been awhile since I've read it. So, the other night, I pushed aside my art supplies and placed my NIV Mother's Inspiration bible on it.

I used watercolor pencils from CTMH to color in the image. Instead of a wet paint brush, I used a baby wipe to spread the colors. The stamp is from Rubber Paws. I handwrote a portion of the verse and underlined it. I used a black fine point BIC pen for the letters.
Note: Hubby did have an infection; dentist prescribed some penicillin, pain pills and anti-inflammatories. Oral surgeon extracted the tooth and all is well!
