The Father Heart of God 5

Welcome to my creative response to The Father Heart of God creative Bible Study.  You can find the details of today's session on The Father Heart of God blog.

I showed how I made my backgrounds in this blog post.   I made all the backgrounds at the same time and then cut and scored the papers to make 5 pages for my book.

I decided that I would do every page in the same way throughout the journal and to keep to a limited palette of colours.    I chose one verse from the Bible Study, printed it out and cut it up.  I inked the edges and then glued it to the outside of the folded page.

This is the reverse of the page with some doublesided tape already attached down the edge of the page between the scored line and the edge of the paper.

I drew the wavy lines as before.

Using a black pen I wrote my journaling so that the letters fitted the gaps between the wavy lines.

I went back through with coloured pens putting pattern into some of the letters and circles between the words.  The circles with dots in look a bit like frog spawn but once I'd done the first page I had to stick with it!

Here are pages 4 and 5 together.

On February 28th there will be one last post in this series showing my completed journal.

Thank you for stopping by today.  If you haven't already joined in with this study you can join any time.

  1. I would love to learn how to make my own journal and put all my thoughts together as they come from the Lord. To put my favorite scripture in there with my problems and my happy times and things I want to remember will be on there. I have two little journals that I bought on Etsy one is really good but just about everything but the writing is already done the second one needs paper and some way of binding it. And I also got several old books that I need to put together, so it will be about 7 or 8 journals if I get them all done. But I already have 3 things going besides everyday life.


I would love you to leave me an encouraging comment. Don't forget to put your name. I love to know who is commenting. Thank you.
