Documented Life Project March 14 (Week #11) Using Dylusions Spray Ink!

This week's DLP challenge is all about "BORDERS"!

March Theme
Making Your Mark (Doodles & Mark Making)
March 14
Art Challenge: Borders
Journal Prompt: "Borderline feels like I'm going to lose my mind."

I knew I wanted to creatively document a scripture that my BEST FRIEND, Melody shared with me several years ago that reminds me of "life borders".

"The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; 
surely I have a delightful inheritance."  Psalm 16:6

God loving places "boundaries" & "life borders" in our lives so that we can experience & enjoy all that He has in store for us. What an awesome promise! 

Here is what I did to meet this week's borders challenge:
  1. Included the above Bible verse,
  2. Doodle stitched black thread and ink around the edges of my layout,
  3. Doddled a funky border around the butterfly focal point.
