Prayer Journal

Keeping a prayer journal is a wonderful way to see how God is at work in your life and the lives of those around you as you present your requests to God. It's like a two-way love letter between you and the one who loves you more than anything.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. -- Philippians 4:6

I created this journal by covering a large composition book with a digital collage I created and embellished with a metal label holder.

I am glad the guy at the garage sale talked me into buying his old typewriter for $12. I enjoy having it.

Mind Wide Open

I have accepted the Mind Wide Open October challenge with this entry. Our challenge was to use this image in our art. When I saw this image it screamed "Sisters".

I used Photoshop to add the letters spelling "sisters" and some brush embellishments. To blend the image, I drybrushed the top of it to take down the white. The roof is made of wonderful dimensional wallpaper border that I painted payne's gray and then drybrushed with mallard green. I used a band saw to cut out the house which is made from pine.

I enjoyed creating this piece and it has inspired me beyond what I expected.

Up to something

This guy has been up to something. I just know it! What could it be? I know it has to be some kind of Halloween hijinks. I can tell by the look in his beady green eyes! I bet he thinks that if he flashes a smile, I will overlook his mischief. Hmmm. . . Should I?
