Always learning & growing as an artist and christian

 Happy New Year All!
  I love learning new things.
I have taken up
journaling and doodling...
And I am starting with
Birdies and Words...
I am doing a Journal workshop over at

Workshop 1 by Pam Carriker
Recycled Journal Page

The best thing about this is
it is FREE!
It is a video class
Short and Sweet...
Just right for my attention span! LOL
So take a minute to stop
by and check it out!

I really enjoy doing watercolor
and ink.  I used a new Pigma Micron
.05 Archival ink in the color Sepia.

This is one of my first attempts in my journal.
I titled it,
"Winters Shadow"

Two of my favorite colors
are periwinkle blue & lavender purple.

The Journal Sketchbook I purchased is
from Hobby Lobby

Great Price!
Natures Sketch
it is 25% cotton and 130lb paper weight
It takes watercolor paint great &
acyrlic too!
Titled, "Whisper of Love"

I am considering printing some cards
with these.
What do you think?
Hear is a picture of my first doodle in
the journal.
My word of the year is

Titled, "Grace"
 Hearts and Love
in the anticipation of Valentines Day.
“unmerited favor” or “the free gift only from God"
Blessings bestowed as a gift, freely
 and never as a merit for work
we have performed. Grace = Peace...
 Grace = Forgiving even when it is unmerited.
 This Year!
