WELCOME TO OUR FEBRUARY CHALLENGES!

Wow - we are already entering the second month of our new year. Time goes by so fast these days.  I remember my childhood when I would wish to be old enough to do something my Mom would say...Stop wishing my life away.  Enjoy the time we have. When you get older you will understand why.  She was pretty wise because I certainly have felt time whizzing past me since I entered my adult life.

Today we have a layout sketch, a card challenge and a scripture for inspiration to share with you. 


I'm sure you can guess that I selected the scripture here because 
this is the month of Love.  


Happy Valentine's Day!


Scripture Inspiration
Three things will last forever -- faith, hope, and love -- 
and the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13

Isn't this insert to Katy's organizer amazing?  
I love how she incorporated our inspirational scripture and the section she has for prayers and praises is a great way to keep track of all her blessings and answered prayers.  


And now it is your turn to share back with us the beautiful creations you have made using our inspiration for the chance to win a wonderful prize donated by Alicia from Scrapbook Fantasies

Tips & Techniques for Art Journaling with Karla!

Hi there friends! Karla here, and I was recently making an art journal page, inspired by the amazing and talented Vicky Papaioannou's New Year Art Journal video, and thought I'd make a little tutorial. Sometimes when you look at a mixed media piece it's hard to pull apart the layers and see where to start. It's really not that hard and following these steps you can create your own piece - either in an art journal, on a canvas, or even on a tag.

Here's a look at my art journal page in my Dylusions Art Journal:

And here are some step by step directions to get you started:

I used a  white gel pen to write down my goals around the page. This beautiful script stamp, sequins and stars are from the Believe Script stamp set by Pink and Main.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have you thought of what your goals for 2016 will be? I hope this inspires you to get out some paints and inks and have fun playing!
