31 Faith Art Journaling Tutorials! Creative Tutorials to Inspire Your Faith



Thank you for joining me for
Faith Art Journaling!

I'm so glad you're here.
Art journaling your faith is really fun. and freeing. I promise.

You've just gotta start. With me. Today.
 Link up any journal pages you make in your comments so we can see.
It's more fun that way.

So what's an art journal anyway?
Here are a ton of great examples of art journals.
Don't let it intimidate you. The beauty of an
art journal is that it is anything you want it to be.
A place for you to create for you. To play. To take risks.

I started off with super simple ideas & materials, so you will just jump in and try it.
I'll add a different technique or tip each day.
And most importantly, I'llbe creating with you each day.
The cool thing I find when I journal consistently is that as I take risks in my journal, I take find myself taking more risks in my "real art" and I grow from it.

Okay I'll stop rambling...
Let's get started!
Starting Simple













In Your Art Journal



















Okay here we go...

***************************************************

Day 1: Starting Simple

The best way to start art journaling is simply to start.
Choose a scripture that you love and doodle to your hearts content.
Keep adding lines and dots and more lines until you are finished.

Materials:
Paper
Pen
(I use an extra fine point Sharpie.)


Happy journaling!
Don't forget to link up your art journals in the comments.

Hello September!

(Where I sum up the summer in a single post.)
Phew. We made it!


 
August is CRAZY around here. (This is me shouting.)
Holy cow. I think I get out in front of it,
and then I just get run over by it. every year.
I need to remember that August is about survival.

 
I go back to school. (I teach first grade)
So getting ready takes all month.
We have 5 big family birthdays.

{Daddy's Birthday}
 
Jack goes back to school.
New class. New routines. New everything.
It's a month of transition.

 
{Josh is climbing...}

 {and climbing...}

{and more climbing...}

And it's bleepin' hot. un.relenting.
 I have to just brace myself for it.
Or be smarter about it or something.

Here are some of our August highlights...


Jack turned 4.
seriously. big. boy.


We went to the fire station.

 
And he got a drum set.
{Thank you Grandma & Grandpa!}
 

I love this picture. seriously cute.
Jack is obssessed with catching bad guys with his traps.
Josh is obssessed with swiping things. Anything.
He just got my phone and he couldn't be happier.


I'm so glad to be getting back to routine.
back to schedule.
back to normal.

On my nightstand...


This book changed our world this summer.
I have a new child.


I'm rereading this.
It's so good.


I'm starting a Bible Study on this book this fall.
I been in a women's study since before Jack was born and I am so ready for some soul food.

And I'm going to take this online class
Shine Bright
because it sounds like just what I need to jumpstart my creativity

And I met sweet Annie from
Thou Art Exalted
She spotlighted me as the artist of the month right here!
Thank you Annie!

All this to say...
Hello September.          
I think I love you.
