2 Corinthians 5:17

Another simple verse done without any planning....I just did it!
I have done this verse twice before but I keep going back to it.
I love butterflies and I love that they transform so completely and beautifully!

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.[a] The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

Genesis 22:2

So this one didn't turn out like I had it in my head.
I am posting anyway.
I made the mistake of using a charcoal pencil to draw out my picture.
It got muddy and icky when I colored it.
So why post it?
Well, because it is real. Not all of my creations are pin-worthy. LOL
I had this image in my head and I really had it great in my head. 

Not long ago I heard someone talk about the principle of first mention. Our speaker asked us if we knew the first question in the Bible. I knew that one because I love the first part of the verses..

And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool3 of the day, and the man and his wife bhid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. But the Lord God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?”

I love the thought of God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, but missed the all important first question in the Bible!

Where are you?

God wants to know where you are. Not in the sense that He is unaware of your location but He wants to draw you to Him!

Where are you?

So that was the first thing she talked about and then she asked us if we knew when the first mention of the word Love was?

Genesis 22:2

He said, “Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.”

The first use of the word LOVE comes when God asks for the sacrifice of an only son -the same manner in which sacrifice is made for sin atonement.

My picture may not be very good but I don't care. The message is powerful enough to make up for my lack of skills :-)

1 John 5:18 I am Born of God and the Evil One Cannot Touch Me

 My identity in Christ says,
I am born of God, and the evil one cannot touch me.

I really like the way that one sounds!

This one is a bit messy. I don't remember what was going on but it was a bit chaotic in my house. I used Artsy Faith Banners & Pennants stamps (you can see HERE) and hand lettered the rest.
The messy coloring was with my crayola colored pencils.

It is a great message about who we are in Christ no matter how you color it!

Be blessed today and may you be a blessing to others!

Artsy Faith Banners & Pennants (The Alison) Stamp Set

So this is what I have been up to these last couple of months. I know there are other suppliers of things for Bible Art Journaling, and they are doing amazing things, but I am a one woman outfit and I am a wife and mom first. 
I love doing this. I love creating things that will help others enjoy the process of Bible Art Journaling!

This set, like our other set, is $12+tax and shipping.

You can see BOTH sets HERE

Thank you all for your kind words and support!

Wishing you a very blessed and Merry Christmas!

What Have I Been Doing?

I have still been creating verses, but not in my journaling Bible. 
I have been creating digital slides.
Some of them have been for church...

Others were just for me...

The one below I created this morning after my quiet time

This is one of the first ones I did after one of our deacons shared a story about a sign in the locker room. He said something to the effect of: you have tried drinking, chasing women, drugs, you have tried everything else and still feel empty why not try God? 
I changed it to Jesus. 

and this one I did for my friend, Nan, I thought I would give her a print:

I think until the holidays are over my "artwork" will be digital.
I do have a pinterest board with digital Bible verse art:

I have a little blog that I use to keep them all in one place:

OH and I wanted to share with you something I found the other day. For those of you who like the idea of Bible art journaling but struggle with the art part of it:

It looks so cool and right now it is priced well below retail during the pre-order time. It won't be released until Feb 2016
