My Colorful Prayers
I’ve enjoyed looking back at some of my favorite prayer resources these past weeks. Today I want to give you a look at the prayer tags I use for my prayer journal these days.
I started this art session with some blank tags and a few I’d gelli printed.
I stamped text. And sprayed with Dylusions.
I did the same in purple.
I added some paper embellishments, Tim Holtz letters and metal numbers. Then I edged with Distress Ink.
I love to add drywall tape at the end for texture.
The true key to all this is that I’m praying for the subject(in this case: this blog and all who read it – including YOU!) all the while I’m working on the tag. Otherwise, it’s just an art project. But I look at the tag now, and I think back to that arting prayer that day. And I bring it back to God’s mind as well.
I keep the tags on a ring that I pray through during my quiet time.
Next week we’ll hear from my friend Diane Marra about her prayer cards.
Prayer: Father, I lift up this blog and those who read it. May we always be aware of Your great love for us. And may we crave time with You each day.by

You really got me interested in making some prayer tags and I love yours. You used so many different types of media and I just finally bought a gelli plate. I’ve been wanting one for a long time and now I’m in that artist mode of “stuck”. I’m not sure what else to call it but I’m almost scared to use it which is so ridiculous. I got a great idea from you and that was using drywall tape which will be great for texture. And I have a question and it’s a very easy one, where did you get the silver rings to hold your prayer cards together. The ones I find are all fairly small and I was looking for one more the size of yours. I love your site, I’m a memeber of “His Kingdom Come” and the “Bible Journaling Group on Facebook but I’m a little behind. But since the reason is doing a Women’s Bible Study on Revelation in Kay Arthur’s Inductive Study Method I feel God will understand and support me. So I’m new to her method but I love it and if you haven’t checked it out you might do that. And I joined a Women’s group, “Daughters of the Holy Cross”. But I miss journaling in my Bible so much I need to pray for the Lord to open a time that I can do that too. Thank you so much for your blog and Happy Mother’s Day! Blessings and peace!

Thanks, Linda! I get my silver rings at Staples and WalMart, but I got some larger colored ones at one of my favorite non-chain craft stores. If you can’t find the size you want in the store, you should check on-line. I have 3 gelli plates. I’m addicted. I have a 3×5, 8×10 and a new 4″circle that I haven’t test driven yet. The 3×5 is perfect for tags. Set aside at least an hour when you gelli print. And be sure to have a journal or something with blank pages to clean off your brayer. Those are some of the best pages! You sound so busy! I love Kay Arthur, but she is very time-consuming. God will bless your time in the Word. Blessings.
