    Art Journaling in Scripture

    I’m thoroughly enjoying the New Testament Illustrated Faith study titled Revival Camp. The fun travel theme lends itself to a great devotional that sheds light on what we need to wear as believers, looking through a specific perspective (our love glasses) and more. Here is another entry in my Bible I created as I worked through another devotion. I’ve read this verse many a times throughout the years, but to ‘create’ it, really helped me to think on and ponder the meaning. I even cut a heart and glued it back together symbolic that He heals our broken hearts and lifts us up. Psalm 34:18 ~ The Lord is near…

    Diving into the Word – Summer Bible Journaling

    The Summer is all about diving into activities, a change in weather and all it has to offer, the swimming pool and more. Recently I’ve been working on getting healthier and the good weather that Summer brings helps with this process. I’ve been taking an Aqua Fit class that’s fun and beneficial. I was thinking about Bible Journaling and how it too is diving in but having fun! Diving into the Word of God to touch and guide our hearts and fun because Bible journaling is a fresh way to record what God is sharing with you in the margins of your Bible. I see Bible journaling also as a…

    Dreams Handmade Journal

    Helen Keller said, “The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.” The above is so true. It’s important to hold our dreams and goals close to our hearts. It’s also important to put them in writing. I haven’t filled this little journal as of yet but see the cover I created. I plan on filling it with little reminders of ways I want to bring others a message of hope and love as well as things I hope to accomplish. I think it will take a while for me to fill this. I created it from cardboard and the Eileen Hull wrapped journal. I used…

    Disney Dreams Album

    This little album is from my heart. While I wish I would have had more time to work on it, things have been hectic at home and work, I enjoyed creating this little wrap mixed media journal with a Disney theme. It was created with someone special in mind who is going through a medical challenge. This special someone enjoys taking trips to Disneyland. I am hoping it will be perfect to put some mini photos in there of a favorite trip to D-land. Here’s a peek at the album. Here are some supplies I used: Sizzix Wrap Journal Die, acrylic paint, Tim Holtz stamps, clips, dies, and ephemera, texture…

    ‘Queen Bee of Brave’ Tag

    Went junk’in with the hubby on Sunday. We also made sure that we visited the ‘Bee Lady’ while we were at the flea market. The Bee Lady (not even sure that’s the business name) carries local honey. She also carries many types of honey infused with other things like pear and other fruit. The hubby uses local honey to often to help combat his allergies. While junk’in, I found some amazing old toy blocks (you’ll see those in the future), some cute mini lanterns that are rusty with the cutest stained glass cover. In addition to those treasures I found these darling vintage stamps so I decided to create a…

I love these folks so I wanted to make the tags special. I thought I’d share with you the tags I gifted my dear friends. Here’s Part One HERE where I shared Sylvia and Tanya’s tags. Part two, I share Mary and Susan’s tag. Susan’s Tag. Supplies: Acrylic Paint,…
