Bible Journaling 101


Bible journaling has become my newest favorite hobby.  Not only do I get to doodle, I get to study Gods word.  The most important thing!
I will be sharing more journaling with you.  For this page I put down a light layer of watercolor for the background.  The made a little banner and used lettering(which I am practicing alot to get better at)  It is such a wonderful craft/hobby/activity.    Hope to get some of my readers back.  I know I seem to be missing in action, however I have started back to college (last year), post on instagram more than my poor blog and I guess you all understand.  


Take care!  Hope to get comments on my blog again soon.

Hugs, Kim B

Psalm 37:4-5King James Version (KJV)

Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

    Hello Everyone!!!
    How are you?  I am enjoying this wonderful fall weather!   I used a great technique called crayon resist.  I have decided to try techniques. I loved it.  I used a white crayon after stamping the flower image then sponged several inks over the area.  I really like the way it came out.  
    Stamps I used from Just for Fun are:  Large Cornflower and sentiment Friends are .
    I used fall colored designer papers, cardstock and ribbons.  Have a wonderful day.

    Journaling

    Here is a Altered Journal that I made with a Encaustic covering and a decoupaged vintage image


    • Journaling helps reduce stress---Somehow just writing down your thoughts helps your mind move on something else.
    • Journaling keeps your memoir.   It might not be perfect however it might be helpful to someone   once you are gone. 
    • Journaling--You can write down your thoughts or ideas.  
    JOURNALING:
    a record of experiences, ideas, or reflections kept regularly for private use


    Start a journal, restart a journal.  Write it down.  

    Have a great day!

    Fall Leaves

    Today, I have a card I created using the Just for Fun rubber stamp:  stamptangle elm leaf.   I stamped a pile of leaves using a green stamp pad.  Next I decided to highlight them with metallic water colors, then I used markers, pencils and gems to complete the leaves.  I made a couple of paper flowers and sewed the edges.  Have a beautiful day!!

    Lets Talk


    Hello there!!!
    How are you all today?  I created this CAS card. 
     Don't you love this new Just for Fun Stamptangle House Wren bird stamp? 
     One of my new favorites.   I thought the sentiment Lets Talk was appropriate
     because he just looks like he is ready to say something.  
    I used the distressed inks on the edges. 
     I used colored pencils and markers on the wings and beak.  

    Find that special someone, give them a call and talk (maybe about rubber stamping-L.O.L.)
    Have a great day!
