journals


I am from Cheyenne Wyoming but have lived many places. I have been married to David for 38 years we have 4 children and 11 grand children. Life has brought many ups and downs and surprises. I am an artist and art journal maker and i have taught lots of crafts along the way. Through everything life has thrown my way the thing I KNOW is art soothes the soul and God heals the heart.

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.
