This turned out to be a stunning page! I love how you added all the elements and yet it doesn't look cluttered or too busy! Fabulous!!

This is really great. My question is what art journal did you use? It doesn’t look like you did this in the Mixed Media pad. Did you stamp and paint on the Mixed Media paper and cut out and place onto the journal page?

What a creative and incredibly beautiful journal page, Esther. I love this! The hymn is one of my favorites too.
