Then sings my soul.....

I've been thinking about creating an Art Journal for the longest time
and that's all I've done....
is think about it..
Until today!

When I started this page, using this Gorgeous Paperbag Studios Stamp

How Great thou Art

just popped into my head, and I sang that old hymn the whole time I created this page.

Thus the journaling is the Hymn itself

Almost all of the pieces I have used on this journal page

come from my Design Team packs both new and past

from The Stamping Queen

they are Paperbag Studio Grace, Collections Elements Bohemian Transparency, Branches Chipboard,Collections words,Kaiser Rub-ons, Photo Clip, and ATC Collection Pad

Just catching up with your recent crafting. This is so special, Gill - I love the hymn and what you have done here with it is so beautiful.

this is beautiful.

the serene look on the stamped girl's face lends itself perfectly to the journalling from the hymn.

my journal pages - not that I do many - no time - are always too personal to blog. So I admire those like you that do put theirs "out there" to inspire the rest of us.
