Hello Everyone! I recently got back from a week in Cornwall, England. It was SO wonderful to take a break, reset and refresh. I have a second camera now, so I can film a second angle in my online courses and I decided to take it along with me and film a bit of my trip and also show you through the Bible journaling travel supplies I took with me! You don’t have to take everything you own, to have a great selection of [click to continue…]
Hello Everyone! Welcome to week 49 of the Bible Art Journaling Challenge! We are super close to the end of the year now! While the Bible Art Journaling Challenge will look different next year, it won’t be going away. Yet, I am close to finishing up this first year and can hardly believe how quickly the time has passed. I always find that time passes quickest, when we are living [click to continue…]
Hello Everyone! Welcome to week 38 of the Bible Art Journaling Challenge! I’ve got a super fun Neocolor II coloring challenge for you, with some Illustrated Faith and Lawn Fawn stamps! You might remember, I am trying to catch up with my regular weekly posts for the Bible Art Journaling Challenge. Earlier this week, I posted what should have been last week and now, I am posting what would have been on Tuesday this week. I am mostly back on track to feeling 100%, but I am pacing myself. I am hoping to have enough time to have this coming Tuesday’s challenge, back on schedule.
Many of you have told me not to bother catching up. But, I said I would do a weekly challenge and I always want to be a person of my word. I don’t want to finish the year, one week short of what I set out to start. It’s just how I roll. And no, this isn’t me spilling the beans, about if this Bible Art Journaling Challenge will be happening next year. You’ll just have to stick around to find out what fun is in the making! 😉
Neocolor II Watercolor Crayons
I have shared Neocolor II watercolor crayons with you before. Search my Neocolor II blog posts, to see those posts with video tutorials! As was pointed out to me recently, watercolor can sometimes look quite, well, watered down. When I look at artwork like that, I just want to cry out, “Where is the color!?!” Only kidding. But seriously… this need not be the situation!
Firstly, watercolor can be layered much like other paints. It just needs a different approach which I’ve come to love in all its vibrant beauty. Secondly, the quality of [click to continue…]
Hello Everyone! It is week 33 of the Bible Art Journaling Challenge! This week I finally felt it was time to share about the topic of rest. It came at a great time personally but I know many of you have requested I share about rest, which was why I chose the topic for this week…. and will stay on the topic next week! If you’re in need of refreshing, stick around.
I fell in love with watercolor through the use of watercolor pencils and when I discovered the Caran d’Ache Neocolor II watercolor crayons… well… let’s just say, I had some months of personal artistic bliss. In my restraint, I’ve tried to [click to continue…]
Welcome to week 7 of the 2015 Bible Art Journaling Challenge!
I want to remind you and let those of you who are new to me know, that this challenge is super relaxed and all about your creative journey with God. Please join in wherever you like! Don’t feel pressure to go back and complete previous weeks. Anyone can join and any point in the year! Just have fun with this and if you want to do previous challenges, you have your whole life to do so! 🙂
This week I was recovering from a nasty flu bug of some sort, which meant I had less time for creating. This Bible page turned out to be one of my favorites I’ve created on so far, proving that limited time does not have to hinder creativity. I was busy resting most of last week and enjoyed creating once feeling better. I am not a fan of cold winter weather. Do you blame me? I used to live in California. Brr! Bring on summer already! Thankfully I am feeling much better and well on my way to full health again! Bring on more creativity!
Last week we covered 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, talking about what our love for each other is defined as in the Bible. I had been looking forward to creating on this weeks Bible page. It is a special verse to me. Watch my video below and then [click to continue…]

My friends recently bought their first house and I wanted to create a house warming gift for them. The wife enjoys bold color choices so I took the opportunity to try out some different styles than I wouldn’t normally go for and hope they enjoy how it turned out.
I used several colors of Distress Ink along with some Distress Paint and Distress Stain. Also, some other Tim Holtz products were used but before I give it all away, I’ll leave you with the video! I hope you enjoy it and [click to continue…]
