Mix It Monthly Native American Challenge

Mix It Monthly is having a challenge to draw or paint a Native American scene with gray tones and collaged elements. This appealed to me to do a Native American Face because I love to do different faces and I did try to keep to the gray tones in my drawing and my collage element is the Native American blanket over her shoulders. After she was finished, I thought that she looked like she was praying and this verse keep coming to my mind for her. I hope that you enjoy seeing her.
Pia Rom who usually does the challenge over on Mix It Monthly has been chosen to do Paint Your Heart and Soul here. Check it out if you'd like to take a course. It will have 24 artist involved.

Watercolor Cards

I enjoyed making some watercolor cards today. I hope that you will enjoy looking at them.

Mix It Monthly - Theme - Art inspired by Songs

I haven't posted in so long I had almost forgotten how to post! But I want to get started back into posting more often now. This drawing was done with the Song "Did You Feel The Mountains Tremble" in mind. The song has a line about "dancers who dance upon injustice". It is a worship song that we sing in our church. That phrase is not actually in the Bible but I do feel that God calls His people out to worship Him and to help those who are oppressed and feel the injustices in this world.
So this is the dancer who came out of my mind. I hope you enjoy seeing her.
You can here the song here on You Tube if you want to hear it.

Stormy Seas - MIM Pirate challenge

This is my pirate for the Mix It Monthly Challenge where the theme is Pirates. I didn't want my pirate to be overly handsome. I wanted him to have a nose that might have been broken in a fight and I wanted him to look a little tough and concerned given the stormy seas that he is looking out on. Hope you enjoy seeing him!

Micah 5:1-5 Bible Journaling

PJ has challenged us to do Micah 5:1-5 for the Christmas season. I have been thinking on it and meditating on it and the phrase "He shall be their peace" stood out to me. I am so glad that Christ is my peace! There is nothing better! I got to thinking and I remembered that I had an old retired Stampin Up stamp that shows Bethlehem! What could be better than to already have something that works for your Bible journaling! I used post it notes to mask off the areas that I did not want to be stamped on and for the star light that is shining down. I used distress ink for the colors.

Isiah 11:1 and Isiah 46:9

Gerald and I are studying Isaiah for our daily Bible reading. My friend, PJ at church has asked that we do some Bible journaling on Isaiah 11 and Isaiah 46. I found the drawing of the man on Pinterest and wanted to draw him for my journaling on Isaiah 46:9. I think Isaiah was trying to warn Judah that God was so displeased with their idol worship. They had completely forgotten God and they were the nation that was to bring the Savior to the world! They were so broken but through Isaiah, God reminded them that He was God and there was NONE like him!
But isn't it just like God to use the broken to bring the Savior into the world. Isn't it amazing what Isaiah saw about the coming Savior so many years before He was born. And then isn't it amazing that we can come and adore Him now! Oh come let us adore him!

Bible Journaling - Psalm 100:1-2

Here is my Bible Journaling for this week's challenge which is Psalm 100: 1-5. Verses one and two stood out to me. At this time of the year I am especially thankful to our Lord since it is the season of Thanksgiving. We are so thankful to be in a new home near our children and grandson. We had a very sweet Thanksgiving with them this year and no one had to travel. What a blessing! When I am thankful, I think of old hymns to sing so this is my drawing for this week's challenge. I did see this on Pinterest and my drawing is very similar. The birds at the top are a stamp with a little of pen filling in.
