Pen and Ink...and maybe some paint

Wednesday, May 30, 2012


Here I come slogging in at the end of the list! :D

Well, I'm mostly working in my scripture journal, so that is on my desk along with a notebook that I scribble notes in regarding artistic ideas.

Of course, there's the WOYWW badge in the background along with a bottle of pop. I'd given up pop for a long time, now I've slipped back into the habit. :(

Here are a few of the pages in my journal, including some I've just begun...

(Sorry, blurry!)

After I finish a few in this format I'll probably go with some spur of the moment art and scriptures. I know I don't want to do the same thing throughout. The format is pretty simple compared to the complex collage journals many are  making, but I wanted to concentrate on time reading the Bible and not so much on the art. I'm hoping this will be something to hand down to my kids so they can have a book of "scriptures that meant something to Mom", and some of my personal thoughts.

Here's what's on my slant top desk. The donkey drawing is #29 of my 29 Faces Challenge drawings. I think it's one of my favorites!

  10. First, a belated happy WOYWW. Sorry it's taken me so long to stop by.

    Second, I think simple is often very hard to do. And as it's your journal, as long as it's speaking to you, that's all that matters. I love the colour blocks with writing; very inspiring.

    Hope you're having a great weekend.
