My Soul At Last Is Home

Today I decided to make a small replica of the stone labyrinth that I could take back to Florida when I go. The experience of walking it whenever I want or need to has been an amazing pleasure this summer! This little one will be a reminder of the bigger one!

I haven't finished putting on all the stones yet of course. It is about 12 x 16 on masonite with two coats of gesso to seal the board first. It's going to have a little weight to it with the stones so I needed a good support.

I painted the labyrinth pattern to match Julie's pattern (there are many kinds) and then I took tiny stones from the actual labyrinth down at the lake and hot glued them into place. When I am done I'll coat it all with a coat of gloss varnish which I think may help the nice colors of the little stones come out.

In the "walking spaces" I collaged some meaningful words that I like to associate with labyrinths. I have taken my references from a book called Labyrinths From the Outside In: Walking to Spiritual Insight A Beginner's Guide by Donna Schaper and Carole Ann Camp.


  1. I love it! I made a temporary finger labyrinth last winter by filling a cookie tray with sand and then pushing small stones into the sand.
