Living an ART filled life…“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” – Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

You do such beautiful work. I am just beginning to artistically journal in my bible and I struggle with the letters. Do you have any tutorials on lettering?
Thanks Kat! So nice to “meet”you! My Post today is a mini tutorial on the “thickening” process…check it out here https://1arthouse.wordpress.com/2016/08/25/the-virtue-of-contentment-wk-4-day-4/
Just found your blog and your instructions are wonderful. I sat here and drew a few of them. I just started Bible journaling and thought I would just be coloring pre made pics but now I can actually draw some myself. With your tutorials, of course. This is so exciting! Thank you!!!

Wow!! These are all so beautiful and so very creative! I like to draw things similar to this and I stumbled upon your amazing work tonight through Pinterest. You have such a way of simplifying the drawing process so that when it’s done it looks so intricate and detailed. It would be great to teach a class with of those who think they can’t draw and it will inspire them to show them that they can. The best part is it’s all Scripture based! You have such a beautiful gift and talent. Thank you for sharing it with all of us!

stay blessed and doodle forever. i love your work and when i recreate it in my journal, it makes my faith even stronger. God bless you sue.
Thank you SO VERY MUCH for making these pdfs so down-to-earth & easy enough that I think I may be successful with freehand drawing after all! Most of the Bible Journaling I have done so far has just been traceable, stamps, or stickers. Once again, THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH & may God bless you in your life and future endeavors, since you have shared your gifts with us! I know that these will not only brighten up my Bible pages but also give me more confidence in drawing!!
Jennifer, thanks so much for taking the time to write! I’m thrilled anytime I’m able to come alongside a Sister to help!!! You are SO WELCOME!! The Lord is so good to meet you in your obedience with blessing! Xo

Hi from South Africa! Oh, Sue, your art is such a blessing to others. Your pages are inspiring and beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing these with us. May I please use/share a few of your ideas in Christian art journalling lessons with friends and in ladies workshops or are they only meant for personal use?
Hi Wendy-Lee! It’s so nice to “meet” you! I love having a Sister in Africa! Of course you may use my lessons! That is why I share❤️ God bless you and your ministry!
Thank you so much, Sue! These will be used in a new Small Group/Bible Study group that I will be leading to help people cope with their stress, anxiety and fear in these uncertain times. Thank you for reaching and teaching others about Jesus through your art.
