Rest—Mixed Media Page

Rest is a mixed media page that was created in my “She Created a Life She Loves” journal, a book I designed for creatively representing things in my life that I love. Things that I or God has purposely added to my new life to bring beauty and joy.

If you haven’t seen this journal, there is a process post for making it, here.

See process instructions for making journal cover here.

This page represents the Rest I find in Him, and a part of my life I created that I love—my comfy, cozy place where I find rest. Where He makes me to lie down, and restores my soul.

My place of Rest, where He makes me to lie down, and restores my soul.

The inspiration comes from my bedroom, that place of Rest, and some things that I love in it. It’s a place where God restores my soul and brings rest to even a weary and heavy laden heart. My dark and light purple mix walls, my books, my mirror, my clock, my bed piled with antique quilts, and many scriptures and “God quotes” hanging all over my walls and every surface.

Better view of tags/printables removed from pocket.

I designed the Hebrew and Greek words labels and Scripture tags as a printable (digital art). I’ve made it available, as a free gift to you, as a download here.

The verses are: Joshua 1:13: Yahweh your God is providing you a place of rest.

Deuteronomy 12:10: Yahweh your God gives you rest from all your enemies around, so that you live in safety.

Matthew 11:28: Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

I hope you are inspired to go create something you love—and a life you love!
