I always look forward to the new **Art*Journal*Journey* Theme each month. The May theme was chosen by Elle and she chose Language as the theme. So many cool things you can do with that theme. This weekend I chose to do the Language(s) of God in my Journaling Bible. When I started, I was going to do Fasting as a way of speaking to God but after listening to a Sermon on Fasting, I realized that was more complicated and I would have to study it more first. So I switched gears midstream and just did some of ways that God speaks to us and vice versa. There are many more, but I put the ones I could think of quickly here.
The papers are from an old hymnal and Close to My Heart (CTMH). The gnome is CTMH as well. Now I have played with all the gnomes in the set,and I totally love them.
While looking for the hymnal paper, I ran across an old song book that I was saving. It was damaged so I knew it would have to be recycled into something. I think it is from the 30s or 40s. My husband and I had a junk booth for several years, and I had a bunch of these old song books I had purchased at a garage sale. I sold tons of them, but a few of the more distressed ones had to be saved for projects.
Eyes speak their own language. I looked it up and there is a ton of studies and information on what you can tell about a person by their eyes. For instance:
Looking to Left
Looking to the left and down while talking signifies that the speaker is recollecting facts. Looking at left and straight means the speaker is having a self-conversation before re-engaging in a debate or conversation.
There is so much more information like that - I book-marked a bunch of the information to go back and study later. Here is my page with this fab song book page.
