How about a free download/printable since it may take a while to get a video tutorial here. We my kids were small we tried to get them to understand the spirit of Christmas was Christ. This is an art piece I did a few years ago to help remember that. 

remember you can download by clicking then right clicking -save to-when you go to print you should be able to tell your printer what size or how many on a page to print. Please remember that i retain all copyrights to this art. it is for your personal use ONLY.

Scripture, art journal prompt

I just wanted to take a minute to think of Joseph in Matthew 1:18-25. This describes a man of humility, obedience, consideration and slow to anger. He took the time to ponder pause and listen to God. What a great example......of only we could find more of this in the men today, in ourselves. Was he this way because he was there living in that time? Was he taught these things and sought after them? I think we have a lot to learn from this man Joseph.

ART journal time:
lets do a quick sketch or paint over of a thoughtful man.....
       sketch a man and write a scripture from the above verse or your feelings about Joseph or a word that would describe him.
        not comfortable with sketching then find a picture of a thoughtful man on the internet or magazine and print a size that will fit in your art journal and print it out......we will do a paint over be back Monday with demo.
         not an art journal but want to participate? then layer scrapbook paper and add a picture of someone in your life (child, spouse, father) to layer on.

Wednesday, January 1, 2014


hello friends,
it is january, 1 2014. i have pondered what word to focus on in 2014 and what i might want to work on....but i kept seeing this art i did last year.   i still find it amazing it is now a stamp at unity stamp company. a fun opportunity in 2013 that i hope carries over to 2014. i had chosen focus as my word for 2013....focus on art, following through on digital art, sell both, focus on me and my marriage....but then the babes came and i lost focus of all that and my focus became my daughter, who struggled with severe post-partem depression. i thought it was my job to keep her alive and the babes safe....a daunting task and a roller coaster ride. she has shown great strength and determination to overcome this illness and she is an incredible mother. she also went to college full time this fall. we are still working on sleeping issues for everyone....we never get enough especially my daughter. back to 2014....i don't know what is coming but i just keep thinking how the Savior is our greatest gift....he gave his life to me and you. so what gifts am i giving back or am i just floating along....2013 was a survival year.....but i want 2014 to be more....to stay OPEN to giving Christ a gift....open hearted, open to art and opportunity, open to being a better person, wife, mother and nana. i won't have anymore time then before but if i am open minded and hearted i can be open to be in the moment and give freely kind words and love. i can be open to choose happiness....and open to let others choose who they want to be without it hurting me.  i think life is not so much about resolutions but living a life to be better today then yesterday....and sometimes goals help us get there....sometimes a word helps guide us to a better place....i think life is about keeping the greatest gift in our hearts everyday of the year and not just holidays that will help us become a better person.

what words, gifts, hopes or fears do you have for 2014?

ps in 2014 i will be doing an inspirational tuesday tag tutorial on my other blog www.jeaniesdesignstudio.blogspot.com it will include my heart...art, unity stamps and whatever art supplies are with in reach that tuesday.....join me next week....jan 7, 2014.
