Q&L #05 - ART

OK I had quite a giggle to myself when I realised this hymn contained the Q&L word of "ART" in it. I'm assuming this meaning of the word wasn't the intended and I haven't peeked at the other entries as yet so I don't know if anyone else came up with it either.

Been doing quite a bit with book pages since last Craft Club (it was their theme!) so thought I'd print out the words of the hymn and take the page from there.

I sprayed, stenciled, stamped and doodled and picked out a few words in the hymn which spoke to me.

So this is my entry for The Craft Barn's prompt this fortnight.

It also ticks the boxes of "Stars" for Journal 52 and at a push their prompt of "A Cause" - Christianity, which is so often sidelined these days.

"How Great Thou ART" indeed!

A wonderful page, love all the colours of your background and an excellent alternative for the word Art - according to the dictionary there are around ten meanings for Art!

Love the colours and a fab interpretation. This is a beautiful hymn and no one and it contains the word art so why not.

I can't believe you managed to get THREE prompts taken care of in one entry. You did a fantastic job, including the beautiful background. Love how you used the word for the CB challenge.
