Colossians words challenge - week 1

Through August Mary, over on Found On Brighton, is running a word challenge. The 20 words are taken from the letter to the Colossians. I'm working in an A5 journal - half the size of the pages I usually create - and each page is done in one day, so they are a little simpler than my usual work. I've taken the word, done a quick study (by way of a mind map on the back of each page) and condensed it down to a phrase which is then journalled on the page.

Here are the the ones for the first 7 words. Above: Faith - complete trust or confidence

Day 2: Love - that which everything else should grow out of.

Day 3: Hope - the light that keeps on shining.

Day 4: Knowledge - do you know in your head or in your heart?

Day 5: wisdom - knowing what to do and how.

Day 6: Strength/power - for endurance and patience with joy.

Day 7: All - nothing and no-one is left out.


  1. As always, I am so delighted with your use of colour and pattern. I especially love Wisdom and Faith.

  2. Tracy, I really like what you've done breaking your word study down with mind maps. Would love to see photos of them! Beautiful pages! I'm so glad you joined the challenge. :)


Thanks for dropping by. I read and appreciate all your comments.
