How Great Thou Art

The August 15th challenge has been revealed at Once Upon a Sketch.

As per usual the challenge is to use the following sketch, and combine it with our journaling criteria.
 Write AT LEAST 2 sentences from the lyrics of your favourite song. Journalling can be in any language and can be any type i.e. handwritten, alphas, printed, rub on.

I rotated the sketch 90degrees clockwise so that my half circle was up the top, and used a good ol' paper doily to represent it. Then I layered up my photo and a couple of circular embellishments. And shifted my title over to the other side so it would fit :-)

For the journaling I chose the song "How Great Thy Art" - I just love the lyrics to this and so wanted to fit as much of it on my layout as I could. Forget the 2 sentences.... I wrote out 2 verses!! What a powerful reminder of the Almighty Creative God we serve.

Can you believe I don't own a colour printer? I used my trusty Silhouette machine with sketch pens in place of a blade to do all the journaling for me. Some days I just don't know what I would do without my Silhouette! But stay tuned because soon I'll show you the layouts I've been creating this week with just the supplies in my crop bag (since I haven't unpacked my scrapping supplies yet... what a challenge that is!)

In the meantime I urge you to give this challenge a go. The prizes are just incredible. Our amazing sponsors this month are giving away all of this......
