Journal Prompt: The Fabric of Your Life
For the prompt, I was inspired by the concept of my Creator as the fabric of my life, using the verse about how He KNIT me together in my mother's womb (Ps 139:13). I used four fabrics: lace and fiber twine (on the tag), canvas (the strip of fabric across the bottom), and Sticky-Back Canvas (gelli printed on it and then cut circles). I decided to incorporate one of my baby pictures and a current photo, to illustrate the idea of how God has been the fabric of my entire (long!) life. I finished with some background stencils and stamps, specifically some stamps related to sewing.
There are many wonderful directions I could have gone with the prompt (the fabric of my life)—love, family, friends, God’s Word. But I was overwhelmed with the realization of how my Creator formed me in my mother’s womb and had/has a plan for me from the beginning to the end.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
– Psalm 139:14a
