Salt: who is my neighbour

It was Lythan's turn to choose the topic for this fortnight's Salt challenge. She chose 'Who is my neighbour' and you can read what she wrote here.

My LO is based on the words of Jesus recorded in Luke 10:27:

'He answered: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and love your neighbour as yourself.'

When the man asked Jesus 'Who is my neighbour', Jesus went on to tell the parable of the Good Samaritan. He ended with this question in Luke 10:36-37: 'Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?' The expert in the law replied, 'The one who had mercy on him."'

Jesus told him, 'Go and do likewise.'

For my LO I used a piece of DCWV textured white card, with a few strips of coloured card. The rows of people are Sandylion horizons stickers (I bought them ages and ages ago and have never thought of a use for them till now).

The strip of torn paper is Bo Bunny love bandit tweetheart - I thought the use of some hearts was appropriate for the theme.

The typewriter keys letters were some miscellaneous ones I found in my box (thankfully I had all the necessary letters) and the 'neighbour' letters are thickers chipboard. The other wording was done on my dymo letratag.

If you can spare a few moments to have a look at the Salt blog, you won't be disappointed - the team always come up with beautiful artwork as a response to the theme - and perhaps you will join in by creating something - please leave us a comment so we can come and see your artwork.
