Twyla on Tuesday - Psalm Journal

I am back this week with another journal
I am working on.  I wanted to share a little
of my process with you.
I was inspired to copy the book of Psalms.
It is a wonderful meditation to write these words
and take them in as I do.  I am also decorating
the pages to make it pretty as well!

I Love the new Tim Holtz Distress Markers!
I am using them throughout this journal and they are
great!  I bought these at Hobby Lobby, but they
can also be found at some scrapbook stores.

This is the cover of my journal.
I am using a simple composition book.
When I use these I like to glue two pages
together to make the pages sturdier.

My favorite detail that I've added to the journal
is the stitched pages.  Below I show how I punch
the holes around the edge.  I then take DMC, it comes
in so many pretty colors, and do a simple whip stitch
all around the edge.

A close-up of a verse that I highlighted.  I like to
get creative with my rubber stamps and stencils.

I've had several questions lately about the kind of glue
we use.  This is my Very favorite glue stick!  It's made
by Pioneer and is very strong without wrinkling your

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my Psalm journal.
Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to

Have a beautiful day!
Love, Twyla

I love your idea. I've started something similar, but may have to take it a little farther with embellishments now that I've seen yours. ;-)

I love your journal. I have noticed that some of the links to your older posts are Barbie Wednesday. Do you still do this? I am 57 years old and have all my Barbies. I have enjoyed looking at these older pots.
