Received a request to make a Natures Glory Prayer Journal. She sent a message and asked that I include a few things and use the Natures Glory digital download from Calico Collage.
Here is what I created based on her specifications.
She asked that it be about 15 sheets of paper folded in half to make one signature. I used 16 and that will make a book of 64 pages. The size of the journal is about 5.5 in. x 7.5 in.
The cover is cardstock with the Calico Image sewn on the cover. Inside the cover, I sewed pockets from pages out of old books.

For the tie on this book is lace seam binding that was white with gold flowers in the center. I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists to change the color to gold. And then these ties were sewed on the cover and I glued small punched butterflies on top of the stitches.
All of the pages in this Natures Glory Prayer Journal have been sprayed with different colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. I just love how it adds color to the pages and then these have a vintage feel without the yellowed pages.
I’ve recently purchased 6 stamp sets of Christian inspirational sayings or words. These are the stamps that I used throughout the journal. Using Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven to stamp the images makes sure that these won’t fade.
The handmade journal cards are all scraps of paper from other projects that I stamped and used Tim Holtz Distressed inks to add color. I love using up these bits of paper from my stash. I’m slowly making a dent in those pockets of papers.
Other journal cards were from Calico Collage – Bible Verses domino size images. I cropped the images and then used my software to make these larger. I love adding these into the journals I make.
She had commented that she loved one of the little girl images in this journal. I decided to crop the image from the journal page and make this into journal cards.
Another request was for me to use glitter washi tape in this journal.
I enjoyed making this Natures Glory Prayer Journal for her. I hope she will enjoy using it every day.
