Faith Journal - 2015

I should probably say that this a Faith "Art" Journal.  A place where I can put out in color what different scripture and biblical thoughts about God mean to me.  I really enjoy this kind of journalling

One of my craft spaces - cramped but do-able
These are some of the items I've gathered to start working on my journal.  As you can see it's a spiral bound mixed media blank journal.  Lets see where it goes...

Outside covers of Journal
No longer yellow.  I sprayed them with dylussions sprays, some ranger spritz spray in frost, silver and gold, and splattered on some FW inks.  I really like the results - I was going for the shapeless teaming void pre-creation.  I know it's supposed to be dark but I can't imagine it without color.
Finished covers
I really like this journal.  The front cover just says "In The Beginning" and the back cover says For Him.  The sticker in the upper left corner of the back cover says, "And now these three remain:  Faith, Hope & Love.  But the greatest of these is...Love."  1 Corinthians 13:13

Inside front cover and the first page
The inside cover goes with the outside, and follows the creation theme, and the verse - "God blessed them", is Genesis 1:22.

Page 1 is Psalm 96:4 - The cross shaped word stamp is anyway and the prayer stamp next to it is very fitting - and my prayer for all who need.  This is what it's all about - LOVE and saying yes to love is something that I can't help.  The colors on this page are from my KOI water color kit and done with a water brush.  I had a great time creating this rainbow of color for the back ground for this page.

Well, this is what I've been up to - it's been fun.  I hope that this day finds you well and happy.  K

About Me

My photo

I am a mother and a grandmother. I was married to my best friend, Ted for over 17 years.  I am now a widow - but have many wonderful memories.  I am an incredibly proud parent and grand parent.  I am very blessed. I live with five frisky cats, one extra large swim-e fish aptly named - Fish.  Fish is a very old member of the family too, like over 18 years.  There is also a five year old crazy dog named Wolowitz in residence - kind of in the middle of nowhere - but I kinda like it that way too. I worked for a tax department which I don't find at all interesting or full filling and just a blur in my mind now.  My main time soaking love, outside of the family and friends that are very dear to me; is creating and making artfully crafted objects that warm people's hearts and tickle their souls.  Who could ask for more than that?
