Birthday Challenge – Faith Art Day 1

Hi Angels!

It’s May & my birthday month. It’s been awhile since I did a birthday challenge so I decided on a 70 day Faith Art challenge from now until July 9th. My Faith Art challenge will include Bible Journaling, Blessings cards, Faithdex cards, Scripture writing and perhaps a mini album or faith “junk” journal. Quite a variety to choose from.

For day 1 I chose to create in my Creative Retreat Kits Journal from the Come Boldly devotional on John 1:1-14 focusing on verses 1-5

In the beginning was the Word. The Word was with God and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. All things were made through Him, and apart from Him nothing was made that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overpowered it. John 1:1-5 TLV

I used watercolor and Distress Oxides, sequins, a washi sticker and hand lettering to complete this page. A simple depiction of light, the edge of darkness and a young woman reading the word, staying steeped in truth.

I hope you’ll find some creative inspiration during this challenge.

Have a blessed week!

Rooted & Grounded Established – Bible Journaling 9


I hope you are having a great week.

I got sidelined by my allergies & migraines for a few days. I only got 4 classes done for the Crop & Create Weekend but there’s always replay on the videos.

Earlier last week I completed the final set of verses in my Rooted & Grounded Devotional.

Walk in Yeshua, rooted, growing & established in your faith.

Therefore as you received Messiah Yeshua as Lord, so continue to walk in Him – rooted and built up in Him and established in your faith just as you were taught, overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6-7 TLV

I did a tone on tone page. The gold & cream in the washi tape borders provide a nice frame. It’s hard to distinguish in the picture but there are 3 tones of ink on the stamped image. I used A Walk in the Woods by Unity Stamp Co.

Thanks for stopping by.

Rooted & Grounded Abide – Bible Journaling #3

Hi Angels!

I hope you have had a wonderful weekend!

I was planning to post this Friday but got sidelined by a migraine.

I’m about halfway through the focal verses for the Rooted & Grounded Devotional. This page features John 15:4-5 TLV

Abide in Me, and I will abide in you. The branch cannot itself produce fruit, unless it abides on the vine. Likewise, you cannot produce fruit unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches. The one who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit: for apart from Me, you can do nothing.

I designed on the back of my file card in my A5 travelers notebook. It’s been a long time since I did a doodle vine & it was quite fun to revisit this technique. I also used some stickers from the Creative Retreat kit.

I hope you have a fabulous week ahead.

Rooted & Grounded In Love Bible Journaling #2

Hi Angels!

My day was really off balance today, however I was able to do a quick Bible Journaling page & finish my Just January Journal.

I recently order two A5 kraft paper travelers notebooks. I have seen a couple of creators using kraft paper to create on & I haven’t done that in awhile so….. I also thought it would give me a smaller space to do some quick Bible Journaling & feature my Creative Retreat Kits.

Today’s featured verse is:

I pray that from His glorious riches He would grant you to be strengthened in your inner being with the power through His Ruach, so that Messiah may dwell in your hearts through faith. I pray that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to grasp with all the kedoshim what is the width and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Messiah which surpasses knowledge, so you may be filled up with all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:16-19 TLV

I masked the center with a heart mask and stenciled over it with a leaf stencil in Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide and traced around the mask with a Micron. I bordered the page with the beautiful washi that came in this months kit and placed 2 of the stickers on a scrap of purple cardstock & fussy cut around them so they popped off the page more. I used Gina K. Designs Love die cut in gold for the center & stamped the “in” from the kit with Villainous Potion. I taped 2 of the pages together to create a side pocket and added the scripture verse to a file card. I used another sticker & the digital printables to create the tab & stamped the leaves to border the verse. A lot of steps but fairly quick to make.

Our winter warning has been extended through Thursday morning so hopefully I can actually do some sorting & more creating tomorrow, since today was a bit of a bust.

Thanks for popping in.

Rooted & Grounded Bible Journaling 2023 #1

Hi Angels!

I have set a few challenge goals for myself this year including a least one Bible Journaling or Faith Art project each week or 52 completed projects for 2023. Since it’s the final couple of days in January, I’m a little behind the power curve on this project. Not to worry, I have some ideas and I actually hope to exceed my goal for this year. I’ve been busy establishing longer in depth Bible Study times & getting my exercise routine set.

My first page is based off my January Creative Retreat Kits Deeply Rooted study, featuring the verses from Jeremiah 17:7-8 NIV.

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out it’s roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for it’s leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.

I used a combination of stencils, colored pencil work, watercolor and word/alphabet stamps for this page. The stencils were from Sweet Poppy Stencils & My Favorite Things and the stamps were from Creative Retreat Kits, Sweet ‘n Sassy and Penny Black.

Are your roots deep or shallow? It is important in our walk with God to be discerning & directly in His Word studying, seeking His knowledge & wisdom. Too many outside influences have infiltrated the “church” and there are a lot of false teachings and half truths being touted as okay.

I hope your week ahead is wonderful. Stay safe & warm.

December Round-Up Enough

Hi Angels!

I’m winding down on 2022 art to share to finish up the year. Since today was a busy errand day, I went back through my photos to find this Bible Journaling page I did during our anniversary trip & never posted.

But on the other hand, when this One offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, He sat down at the right hand of God – waiting from then on, until His enemies are made a footstool for His feet. For by one offering He has perfected forever those being made holy. Romans 10:12-14 TLV

Jesus has fulfilled the requirement for sacrifices & offerings or the tamid (Hebrew) once and for all when He died for our sins, offered forgiveness & new life with Him restoring our relationship with God.

I used a stencil for the background, hand lettering & the Creative Retreat kit Perpetually Enough to create this page.

Thanks for stopping by.

God is Faithful Bible Journaling Retreat – The Lion & The Lamb

Hi Friends!

We have the honor & privilege to know that while we remember Yeshua’s sacrifice this weekend, He is indeed risen and we live with the hope of His return.

One of our retreat lessons, by Suzanne from Confetti Creativo, was on The Lion & The Lamb Revelation 5:5 and 5:12

“Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, Root of David, has conquered, so that He can open the scroll and its seven seals.”

“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!”

My page includes splatters of red, black & gold representing the blood, darkness and light & majesty of our Lord’s sacrifice. The lion printable is from Ella Roetz, the lamb stamp is from Creative Retreat Kits and the flowers from Sweet ‘n Sassy Consider the Wildflowers.

May your weekend be a reminder of how much God loves you, that He sacrifice His Son for our sins and He rose victorious over death to bring us new life in Him.

Come With Me Lent Art Journal

Hi Friends!

I hope everyone is staying safe & warm in these winter storms & events. It’s a bit frigid here in Oklahoma at the moment.

Been a bit busy and hubby has a few days off so not a lot of time to create. However, I ordered the new Open Journey Come With Me 2 Lent Bible Journaling Kit and along with the 40 day study, I’ll be joining Liz Curtis Higgs The Women of Easter Study. I don’t usually do much for Lent but both of these appealed greatly.

So I found a steno style watercolor journal in my stash and decorated it with kit elements from the Open Journey kit.

Ingrid’s physical kits are wonderfully packed with a devotional, lots of collage images & pieces, fibers & a stamp set plus there is a digital version available too. This time I also ordered an additional coordinating stamp set & the boat charm I added to my journal. I used the “folder” that was holding all the pieces to create the front & back of my journal along with some of my hand painted paper for the sides. I used both stamp sets that matched the kit and the Tapestry of Grace stamp set from this month’s Creative Retreat Kits to add the collage feel to my covers. I love how it all came together.

I have the Creative Crate event this weekend so there will be more creating going on, then it’s back to organizing & purging some more.

Stay safe & warm.
