Faith Journal

Today's installment. Funny how the things I'm worrying about seem to be working themselves out as I work on these pages....funny that~

ABC Faith Journal

I've been short on time to work on the wet, messy kind of art, but I have been trying to sneak in a few minutes everyday to work on my Faith Journal digitally. I've been going thru the alphabet one letter at a time, and here are a few of the pages I've added so far. (In the end, I will be binding them and adding all sorts of bling and ephemera to the pages to fatten them up.) I really Love the group Casting Crowns. It seems as if every song they sing speaks to me, so I have been using their songs as inspiration as well. It seems as if they have a song to go with every verse or phrase I picked to try and use in my journal.

An apple a day...

It seems as if lately all around me is in disorder because of disease, illness or injury. Family, friends, online art friends, co-workers and even myself! I know Satan would be eager for me to slip into depression, so I am battling it for all I'm worth right now. One of my main combatants of depression is art time. So I've started working in a new art journal- all about Health. It is so gratifying to see the pages get nice and thick and colorful. I've enjoyed trying out new techniques and new styles. I've also taken it apart to be able to work flat, and when I put it back together I will also add danglies, and tabs and charms, but for now- I'll post a few as they are.

This last page I did as I was awake with insomnia. I could hear Mike snoring away in the other room, and so that's what all the scribbled journaling was about. Sort of my way of counting sheep!

Altered Faces

Last month, I hostessed a fatbook on Altered Faces, and since all the players have received them, I can post my pages for viewing now. Many altered with paints, mosaics and collages. It was a small book but very mighty in the ideas and art that was in it. I altered all of mine on the computer, and enjoyed the challenge. I learn so much from these projects, and every time a book goes together, I am so surprised at the amount of inspiration it encourages.

These are the pages I contributed, with the original on top.
