On September 13, Brad and I will be beginning a course in the Apprentice program, which is a class designed to help you grow in your relationship with God. It is based on a book by James Bryan Smith, who lives here in Wichita and spoke at our church last Sunday, entitled The Good and Beautiful God, Falling in Love With the God Jesus Knows. You read the book, do spiritual exercises, keep a journal, and discuss your experiences in a small group. Everyone who's done it says it is amazing, and Brad and I are really looking forward to it. So I made him a journal. This is one of SU's chipboard covered books, covered with Basic Grey paper from long ago. The image is from ODBD's set Keep My Lamp Burning, and is the coolest lighthouse image I have seen--very collage-y. I inked up the stamp in Buckaroo Blue, then wiped the blue off the edges and corners and inked those up with Mellow Moss. I layered it on Buckaroo Blue and Mellow Moss CS and some Night of Navy and Mellow Moss eyelets and some hemp finished off the journal. I hope he likes it! I had a great time making it. Have a great day!
