Righteousness exalteth a nation:
but sin is a reproach to any people.
If you have been around long you know that I have done something similar to this in the past...but I wanted to put it into my Bible. Gotta say, I see the nation getting blacker and blacker with sin... HEARTBREAKING!
I started out with colored pencils but quickly realized that there is no way to get a red as red as I wanted it with pencils... so I pulled out my acrylic paints. I am happy to say that even though the pages are thin, there really isn't any bleed-thru. There is a showdown because everything is so dark, but nothing that is distracting.
I used Golden paints... you will notice they are really pricy! That would normally throw the breaks on but I LOVE LOVE the reds and the transparency of them. And too, the reds are among the more expensive, see how the black is half that price.... I think there is real gold or something in the red that makes it so expensive. ???
