This is my favorite page in my art journal so far. It seemed to come together quickly. I like when my thoughts flow from my head through my hands without struggle.
It began with this old McCall's sewing pattern I had sitting on my desk for quite some time. Why it got me to thinking about modesty, I don't know.
Modesty. A word that is mocked in today's society. Is modesty a thing of the past? Not in this house. What we have to endure with our eyes outside our home only reinforces our desire to dress in a way that is holy and pleasing in God's eyes.
I appreciate my 14 year old being conscientious about what she wears. She is learning at a young age that someday she'll meet her prince who will be attracted to her because of her Godly beauty, not her boobs or booty.

Items I used:
Antique sewing pattern and tissue.
Tan scrapbook paper.
A row of Green Stamps...anyone remember those? I remember helping my mom fill her green stamp books, as well as going to the store to redeem them. Good memories.
Floral embellishments that I brushed with brown ink to age them.
I should've added the scripture in John 17 where Jesus says, "I am not of this world". (Note to self.)
Rather than gluing the paper down, I taped it down with strips of medical tape.
Red embroidery ribbon.
It's All Good!
