25 Days of Christmas Post of Artwork

Merry Christmas!!

Today I wanted to share with you some of my 25 Days of Christmas Bible Art Journaling I did this year!  I used Dylusions Ink Sprays for the backgrounds and wrote the Scripture out; used several Inspired Stamps you can find at my etsy shop (www.etsy.com/shop/GodblessyourART)...easy peasy, but really causes you to pause and chew on the verses!

So thankful for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!  This little book is one I know I will look through again and again!!

May God bless your HEART on this Christmas Day and always, 'growing you in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ',

25 Days of Christmas Art Journaling

Hello friends!
I am really loving the time I'm spending getting to play in my art journal this month!  I am using dylusions spray inks, Inspired Stamps (found HERE), my own handwriting, and some stencils I have laying around!  The key part for me is the Scripture I am thinking on as I am transferring it to my art journal from my Bible.  Here's what is completed today (more needs to dry and I'll get photos of those in a couple of days for you!):
(I am coloring HIS LITTLE ONES: ANGEL to put in the spot where I'm pointing)
I may add more stamping around this yellow one...
Thanks for stopping by!
I'll be back soon with more of my pages...
May God bless your art...and your heart,

25 Days of Christmas...Matthew 1:18 (and your HANDWRITING!)

Hello friends!
I am working through my Bible Art Journal in December using some of my favorite sections of the gospels to compile the Christmas Story...plus a little more in the book of John I just couldn't leave out!

Today I want to tell you it's GOOD to use your own handwriting!  I actually had a class in college that taught me fairly perfect penmanship because I was teaching children how to write...but I rarely use it in my daily life outside of a classroom.  Why?  Because I do believe our own handwriting really comes with its own flair of personality to it.  So with that said, I want to give you a couple of tips in making your own handwriting more pleasing to your own eye...

I am a huge stamper (which is a good thing since I now run a small Christian stamp company LOL).  But you can use your own handwriting for much of any journaling you do, and just add stamps to give it a little variance (more on this another day).

I created the backgrounds in this journal using Ranger Dylusions spray inks and journal.  Here is the Scripture I wrote on the first pages of my 25 Days of Christmas Journal:
Now to take the printing up a notch, add marks to the tips of all your letters:
 before (above) and after (below).  It already looks better this way...
Next I add color to make Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit pop, including white pen to the black letters:

Then comes an Inspired Stamp: NATIVITY SET's Mary to this page with a couple of personal notes in pen below:
I hope this helped someone to play a bit with your own handwriting and feel a little more comfortable writing in your Art Journal!  I'll be back soon with more pages!

May God bless your ART and your heart,
