Journal Your Prayers: Mixed Media Journal
With so much going on in the world right now, I have found the news depressing and affecting my mood when I spend too much time online. Things are up in the air about my children’s schooling for the fall with all the new restrictions going on and I am a bit on edge about it. I am a planner so not being able to plan stresses me out.
Have you ever read the book or seen the movie War Room? I just finished reading this book and it was fabulous. I was reminded to let God take control.
I decided it was time to spend less time dwelling on my fears and start praying about them. And what better way to keep track of my prayer request then to put them in a pretty book, so I made a journal to record them.
And aren’t those hydrangea’s beautiful? They are from my garden AND from the same bush. Crazy right? Who knew that one bush could have so many color variations.
Creating the Journal
I started with a blank journal from the Dollar Tree and covered it in brown packing paper.
I used PaperArtsy Infusions for the background and a Japanese Wave stamp embossed. I added a strip of sari fabric against the edge.
My background has been layered with patterned paper and some scrap background that I painted on. The main image is from PaperArtsy and has been sitting on my desk for quite a while. I am so glad that I finally got to use it.
I am joining the T day gang today at Elizabeth and Bleubeard’s. I found this beautiful tea cup online that caught my fancy. You can find it HERE. I would love a few of these pretty cups but to be honest, they don’t hold enough tea for me. I keep my 32 ounce Yeti in hand all day with 3-4 refills. Too bad this pretty cup doesn’t come in a larger size.
Happy Tea Day,
