Whimsical

Below is a drawing that I learned from a tutorial that was shared in the Bible journaling group that I follow called His Kingdom Come. She actually was my third attempt after I re-watched the tutorial. I’ve never tried drawing anything before, but I think she turned out pretty good. Hope you like her. 🙂

The flowers on her dress are from a tutorial found on YouTube.

My GOD is changeless in his LOVE for me,
and he will come and help me.
Psalm 39:10

If you like trying new things, I found a tutorial on how to apply foil to your graphics.

Things I’ve been up to besides trying my hand at painting and drawing:

  • Painting the trim on our house
  • Enjoying a walk with the grandson (it’s kind of an annual Summer event with us) (see picture below of now vs when smaller) He’s growing up so fast.
  • Enjoying patio lounging and swim time with the hubby
  • Playing ball with Razzy. He loves being outside and running.

Just enjoying the beauty in our every day retirement. We laughingly say we are on staycation that will be a years-long staycations since retirement funds don’t really allow for vacations.

Flower Basket Manipulation

Flower 11

I drew this.

Then I took a photo of this.

Then I put the flower drawing into the basket using Adobe Photoshop; added some scrapbooking elements from kits I either purchased or got free online, tweaked the hue/saturation so the flower blended to the background color, and ended up with this:

Then I used a script brush that I found on a site call French Kiss Textures (if you sign up for her site, she does offer some great freebies as well as kits for sale and tutorials) to add the script and I also used one of her backgrounds from French Kiss.

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving

Weep

 

I weep not with shabby girl

I’m in various Bible Journaling/Bible Reading groups that do such great scrapbook and/or digital pages. They do such great drawings so I’m dipping my pencil (as you might say) onto the canvas page to see if I can even draw more than a stick figure. So far, I’ve tried a couple of gals since I see lots of those used in pages. This one is my weeping girl since I was going for the eyes closed, and I wanted to add a quote (from me) about her weeping.

Hope you like it, and hopefully you’re not laughing too loudly at my first attempt at drawing a girl. I know…the pencil marks are messy. Will work on that. 🙂

Happy Wednesday,

It’s a sad world this week so I guess my gal could be weeping of sadness also, but we continue on with prayers to Paris and Jesus’ steady promises to guide.

Thanks for stopping by,

You also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth,
the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit.
