2013 Gratitude Journal - week 2

So here I was thinking my week was slightly better than the last.  I was looking forward to create my gratitude journal page, and yes, I did enjoy creating it!  No doubt there.  But imagine my surprise, when I got home just now, to add the picture to my blog post, and I found that I had created with the wrong scripture! Well, not the wrong scripture (no scripture is) but I used the scripture intended for NEXT week's creation instead.  Still.... it's a perfect scripture to mediate on, and to express gratitude!

In creating another page to my gratitude journal, I used a digi text I made, using NEXT week's scripture, and have used another fabulous vintage era image from Create with TLC.

Again, I wasn't in reach of all my craft stash, so I could only create with what fitted into my trolley.  Since I like clean and simple, or uncomplicated creations (which is usually all I can manage to create, time wise), I thought that I might carry on similar pages through my whole journal.

I've used again, a square image layer, colouring the image with chalks and markers, and using chalks for the background, to blend it into the central colour square on the paper I've selected.  I tried to keep the image in similar colours to the paper, well, at least not too contrasting! After fixing the image layer down, I stitched around the picture border in stem stitch, and then around a delicate border on the paper, in a running stitch, adding a little definition.  I left this creation glitz free, as I didn't have any with me in my trolley.

As well as linking this into the hosted challenge at Inspired Stamps (thank you Antoinette!) I am also linking this up at Word Art Wednesday #63.....thanks for peepin'!
