So Lovely |Adding Flair to Ephemera

Song of Songs Bible Journaling Page using Bella Blvd Secrets of the Sea - Lydia Cost

I’ve recently been eye-ing all the beautiful embroidery thread creations on Pinterest, and I’m especially obsessed with the embroidered hair!  I just couldn’t help but add a little pizazz to this gorgeous mermaid from the Bella Blvd Secrets of the Sea collection.

I knew I wanted to add some really long dark braids to the pretty little lady, but she already had a top bun.  I went about cutting off her pretty little bun to make room for some long locks!


After removing her bun, I began by stitching on the hair on the top of the head, matching the pattern that was illustrated on the ephemera.  I finished stitching at the bottom of each corner of her head to string several strands below her ears for those long brads!


I left one side open so that it appear as if she was still braiding, since her hand was in the perfect position.  Isn’t she just the cutest?!


I added her to my Bible page along with a few pieces of other ephemera, alphas, and some ciao chips.  It was a super simply page, but I wanted that lovely little mermaid to do all the talking!

Thanks so much for joining me today!  I hope you’re inspired to add a little flair to your favorite ephemera!

Matthew 13:44-46 (ESV)

The Parable of the Hidden Treasure

44 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

The Parable of the Pearl of Great Value

45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, 46 who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.


Psalm 112:1-3 (ESV)

The Righteous Will Never Be Moved

112 Praise the Lord!
Blessed is the man who fears the Lord,
    who greatly delights in his commandments!
His offspring will be mighty in the land;
    the generation of the upright will be blessed.
Wealth and riches are in his house,
    and his righteousness endures forever.
