art + journal


This is a collection of images from my art journals.  Simple sketches based on what is pulling on my heart right now.  Art journaling can be as simple as using pencils and paper (and a huge white eraser) and learning to let the Spirit speak through your fingertips.  It is hope-filled and healing and filled with newness everyday.  To me it is joyful worship~ 

I hope you will join me in sharing your images online, too.  It would be a gift to me to have you as an art journaling sister & friend~

  13. I really adore your artwork style and would love to be able to create something like some of yours. My biggest struggle is always the focal point and the words. I can do backgrounds all day long, but then I get stalled out. I have so enjoyed browsing your blog - love the sheep : )

  17. I love lambs, too. We drive by a little farm alot, and it has sheep... we havent seen any lambs, but every time we go by it my little boy asks if the sheep are there, and if we dont see them he says they are probably in the field eating grass. 1 day I'd like to have the courage to pull in the driveway and talk to the farmer, so my little guy can see them up close.

  30. I love your art. So colorful and detailed and whimsical! Do you do book covers? I'm stopping in from the a-z. I'm working on a Christmas project for families, in book form. Whimsical. I envision your style on the cover. :-)
