Default Psalms 26:8

My girlfriend's grandfather asked me to put the passage " Lord I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine dwelleth." into a project. I am goint to use calligraphy as the font, but I dont know exactly what I should use as the background. Any suggestions would greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Kenelm

Kenelm, since God is the Master Creator and His habitation is in His own creation, why not use a majestic background like mountains and a clear sky; something simple so as not to clutter the message. Maybe even a simple country church sitting in a quiet meadow.
I'd love to see your finished project. It should be wonderful.

Thanks for the suggestion. I thought about something like that, but I'm going to put the words on a simple scroll like they used to write on way before they had books. I think the simpler the better since the only thing he gave me to work with were the words and I would like to draw as much attention to them as possible.
