Art Crazy and Bible Journaling too.

I have a new love, Bible Art Journaling. I can't get enough,can't stop. I have been doing alot of art this Year.... sketching, painting,  mixed media. Now for the last three Months I have combined all three into Bible art Journaling. I hope there are more than a few of My readers who also enjoy this. You basically start with a wide margin note taking Bible, these have been out in the stores for a long while.Now they are called Bible Journals. I  began with all My favorite verses that I have loved for Years and did My art that related to those verses.  I'm also renewing an interest I had Years ago in inspirational/faith art Journaling. On Mondays and Tues. I paint from My online class I'm taking, mostly acrylics for Me. I never could have dreamed that My Senior Years would have been spent doing art.I knew I would be doing crafts but My crafts dwindled when art took over.What a blessing I didn't expect. My Lord is full of surprises.
I can't wait to dance before My Lord.

Blessings abound.

Job saw The Lord.

My spirit is in the Lords hands.
Patchwork,done in two inch squares.

Angel of Joy.

Angel of Radiance.

My feet - My path.

Angel of Mercy.                As You can see I love to paint Angels. Most female faces I paint end up as Angels in the end. Wished for blessings to all of You. Now please join Me in making art, esp. if Your a senior like Me....It's so good for You.

How lovely, Denise! The Lord gives you not only the talent but the desire to journal for His glory! YOur bible journal will, I'm sure, become a keepsake. I especially noticed that you're anxious to dance before the Lord --- me, too! A testimony to go with this: When my mother went to heaven back in 2001, the Lord spoke to me these precious words, "Mary Ann, she's been reunited with your father, and they're dancing up here." These words stil move me tremendously. As a married couple they didn't do very well on earth. It doesn't matter in heaven! Hallelujah!

I am thrilled to see apost from you! So, you did it! I love your bible. Which one did you end up getting to have the space for your art work. Would like to explore this too.
I am so happy you are into your art.

Not sure how I missed this post. THIS IS THE COOLEST. I am so out of the loop. I did not know there were wide margined bibles. This would be wonderful for my Sunday School class - and I love the art you have done. The kids could do a combo of journaling and art, just like you did. I am not teaching this year or I would be all over it. As soon as I am able, I am going out looking for one of these bibles!

Hi Denise!
The title of the song is "This is your fight song" and that´s the link
About my words in Sublime:
I found her lying as I walked back home.
It takes nearly two weeks with a little water.
Offering their tiny buds as a gift.
It´s name: Malva , and it's so easy to find in any area!
Hence it of pushing up daisies, for their ability to grow in any unpopulated, or almost place.

Have a nice day!

Hi Denise, I saw your comment about my Bible Jouraling page. I am glad it was some kind of inspiration for you. This is something I have been doing for years and for the last couple of years just started adding my stamps and mix media to it. I really like it. I have done some other pages too and will probable create a page for those on my blog. You can check my blog in a few weeks and see if I have it created yet. I encourage you to take your blogging in the direction you feel led. I am not blogging as much as I use to due to health reasons and just couldn't keep up with everything life seemed to be demanding of me. In return for that my following is not as big as it once was, but I'm OK with that. I have never stopped crafting, I am working on things all the time and always will. It is a big part of who I am. My email is nathansmom7@gmail.com and you are welcome to email me anytime. God bless you.

Awww so sweet Denise. Angels are lovely and I am a senior too. You have a great gift of art and it shows immensely. I am so glad you were inspired by my post. I love those rose balls! I would invite you to share at our link party, Dishing It & Digging It. The party starts every Sunday and goes for about 4-5 days. Our readers would seeing your precious art.

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
