“Sunrise” Art Journaling Process

Sometimes, for a creative refresh and recharge, you just have to keep things simple.  And, that is what I did for my art journal entry this week.  I wanted to use a page in my art journal that had a bunch of bleed through on both sides from various projects.  Recently, I stumbled across aContinue reading ““Sunrise” Art Journaling Process”

Mixed Media Bible Journaling – JOY!

I don’t know about you, but May has my head spinning so far. With the array of end-of-school activities and programs, Mother’s Day, summer preparations, and volunteer commitments, I have been feeling overwhelmed and not at all full of joy. But, as a pastor at my church often reminds us, many of our stresses areContinue reading “Mixed Media Bible Journaling – JOY!”

“Growing” Art Journal Process

I say it all the time (or write it!), but I truly love art journaling.  It is the most freeing process, where there are no rules, and whatever is in my head gets out onto paper.  The funny part is that sometimes when my thoughts spill onto the pages of my art journal, they doContinue reading ““Growing” Art Journal Process”

Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop Art Journal Entry

I had the best of intentions when I started.  I wanted to do a bright art journal entry, but I also had planned to do some sort of masking stencil to tone down the brightness.  But, once I started adding color, I couldn’t stop.  The page just became louder and louder, filling with vibrant color.Continue reading “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop Art Journal Entry”

Great is Thy Faithfulness Hymnal Entry

Have you ever had a journaling entry that was driven by supplies?  Normally, when I am working in my Bible or my hymnal, the verse or the song is the starting point.  I am inspired to journal thoughts or prayers about a certain passage.  Sometimes, it is just because I want to spend time reflectingContinue reading “Great is Thy Faithfulness Hymnal Entry”

Creating Quick Backgrounds #1

Sometimes, when I am creating a Bible journal entry, an art journal page, or a traveler’s notebook page the hardest part is just getting started.  Putting actual color to a blank page can feel intimidating at times, so it is great to have several techniques in your back pocket, ready to pull out and getContinue reading “Creating Quick Backgrounds #1”

#Allthecolor

I’m over winter.  Completely and totally over it.  I am over the cold temperatures, the bare trees and the gray skies.  It seems like winter may just never end around here, so I decided to focus on color in my art journal this week. My inspiration for the art journal page this week started withContinue reading “#Allthecolor”

But First, God – Lent Journaling Page

I have a love-hate relationship with social media.  As a stay-at-home mom, some days, social media is the only interaction I have with other adults until my husband comes home.  I realize that some don’t categorize it as actual interaction, but when you are home with little ones, taking a few minutes here and thereContinue reading “But First, God – Lent Journaling Page”

She Can & She Will Art Journal

My one mission when I sat down to do a bit of art journaling this week was to use primarily Jane Davenport supplies to work on creating one or more of her whimsical girls.  As I’ve mentioned before, I try to create time every Friday for art journaling, but this week my struggle was creatingContinue reading “She Can & She Will Art Journal”
