I took an old Holy Week bulletin from a previous year, glued some cream cardstock, front and back to make the covers, and covered the spine in black bookcloth tape. Then I had to let it dry some, before decorating the cover.

For Palm Sunday, I sponged acrylic sponged over the text, added pictures from the internet and doodled some background stuff.
For each day, I'm adding the gifts for that day on a "Smash" card, or similar. For Palm Sunday, I wrote down some favorite lyrics, and some private and not-so-private thoughts about the day.

So that's next year's plan. We can call this year a practice run :) For example, I now know that I'll need a ton more pages if I'm going to be journaling lectio divina -- should they be a part of the art journal or separate? And should I make each page a fine art journal page? If so, I really ought to be working on it throughout all of Lent because it takes me about a week to finish a fine art page.
See what I mean?
|not quite done yet -- Wednesday needs to be finished and I need to think on doodling...|
and oh my gosh, one of the pictures is crooked ... see what I mean?!?!?!?!
Thursday's completed pages will hopefully be posted on Friday, and then Saturday and Sunday on either Sunday afternoon (super-optimistic) or some time on Monday.
How are you observing Holy Week?
