Adventures in Bible Art & Journaling :: Water as Abundant as the Seas

As I am just returning from a cruise, the idea of the abundance of the water in the seas is fresh in my mind:
(Journaling is in Psalm 78)

I love to think of the miracle of water pouring out of a rock in the wilderness. Where we live, the rocks often drip water (during the winter, the icicles are amazing!) - and it amazes me every time! 

God is powerful.

Adventures in Bible Art & Journaling :: Rainbow Promise

I posted a little over a week ago how Bible art & journaling doesn't need to be big and bold to be effective. I'm back with another small entry in my journaling Bible today:
(Journaling is in Genesis 9)

I mainly used stamps from the Rainbow Promise set for this entry, with a few handwritten words and a touch of color added in. 

God always keeps his promises, and for that I am thankful.

Adventures in Bible Art & Journaling :: I Am Who I Am

I AM WHO I AM:
(Journaling is in Exodus 3)

It is amazing to think of all that is said with those 5 little (yet big) words.

I am so thankful that God is in control.

Adventures in Bible Art & Journaling :: Dog pile!

Dog pile! 
(Well, I guess this is more like a dog-less pile.)
(Journaling is in Genesis 7)

I used stamps from the Rainbow Promise set for this entry, and just finished it off with some simple coloring. 

God is an amazing creator.

Adventures in Bible Art & Journaling :: Jesus Turned Their World Upside Down

As much as I love the big, colorful Bible art, I need to remember that just getting down the idea is what's important. The words and art on this page were inspired by a lesson I heard at church (journaling is in the book of Luke):
Many times, Jesus' teaching was not just new ideas, but the complete opposite of what the world would think - he was turning their world (and ours) upside down.

I just added a little bit of paint to my page, stamped the globe (upside down), and then wrote in the notes and doodled a few arrows. Very simple...and that is just fine with me.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Just Because

Just because...sometimes you need a card for no particular reason.
I love this floral image from the Comfort & Hugs stamp set - it is large enough to carry a card with just a simple sentiment. I added a bit of watercolor and topped it off with a little bit of shimmer. It was easy to create (great for assembly-line style...I've got a few variations to share) and gives a beautiful result.
