Yay! Its FALL and that means it’s (almost) holiday time! I was asked to paint some weenier dogs for our local up and coming wiener dog race. And if I do say so myself, I am IN LOVE with these little ones.So I thought I just have to share them with all you out there too!
The hand painted ornaments are ready to bring you joy starting now, and all year (if you keep them out like I do) All new 1.7:/45 mm glass ornaments, ready to hang with a pretty little ribbon.

We learned,then practiced drawing techniques with marker and colored pencil. Finishing up in our Bibles to create a glorious eye-catching Bible page. These ladies did an awesome job!! Love how each has the same design and come up with their own unique style that speaks of their personality.
It/was such a delight to spend the evening with these ladies and share the love of Gods word.
If you would like this template, go to my shop where all of my Bible art journal designs can be found.
Those of us who are creative HAVE to pack some art supplies. You just never know when the inspiration may strike! And we know that can be ANYTIME, especially on trips!! So here are a few of my favorite things… add a bag to fit it all and just grab and go.
This selection can even fit into ziplock bag if needed!
Handbook Journal- the square 6 x 6 or this one in 8.5 x 5. ( or any easy to carry size sketchbook)
mechanical pencil of your choice
Micron pigma pen .01 in black (its waterproof and acid-free)
This would be my BARE MINIMUM. BUT, as an art supplies hoarder I add a few more goodies in.
Watercolor pencils and/or compact watercolor set
dager style paint brush, point paint brush and a waterbrush
Acid-free glue stick
washi tape to tape stuff in sketchbook with
Folding scissors (find in the camping section)
a few other sizes of Micron Pigma pens for fun.
Trick to sketching more is to have your supplies ready to grab and go or in the car all the time. Secret nobody tells you is to buy double supplies if you need to. love that pencil? get two. One for everyday use and one in your kit. It is worth the doubles to have a drawing supplies all together instead of looking for this pen, pencil , brush as you get ready to go somewhere. it was the best thing I ever did,having duplicates of my favorites pens and p brushes. Even a small watercolor set. Then i knew my kit was complete and cold spend more time sketching and recording! What I wanted to really be doing…not trying to remember when I last had that brush. What are your favorite supplies and tips to spend more time drawing? C Love to hae a new excuse to go get a new tool! Share in the comments below. hope you found this helpful too! happy travels and sketching!

Do what you can with the moments you have….you too could be pleasantly surprised! 💙 Sketchbook page all ready with some snippets of paper.I began sketching in the car. On the way out of studio a little early to bus I wanted to squeeze in a bit if sketching. I grab a daffodil. Something other than people while I’m waiting somewhere. Which seems to be my recent theme lately to sketches. In my car now,I found I left my pencil case behind. I routed around in my console finding a stray brush,used a capful of water and my watercolors…I pushed on determined to create! It’s not a typical ink drawing I would of done if I had my case…but I’m pleased even more! I’m pleased even more!
HEREI never would of imagined I would be one of THOSE. My early years of catholic school are still are with me in that I would never dream of writing in a book let alone a BIBLE! But her I am doing it, LOVING IT! Growing closer to God.
I was slow to start. First Sunday Sketching and note taking of the sermon during service. That now I have grown very comfortable doing it. The church I attend already encouraged note taking. For me as an artist I take notes with images. I couldn’t’ help myself. But at first with no intention.
Jump to the last few years…I now have a designated sermon sketchbook. (the blue one above) I have intentions with the little doodles and drawings. They relate back to the sermon or activities around me at the time. Little by little I have “upped” the materials I use in church. Even using my watercolors in church but more. Though mostly adding color after when I return home or in the evening. It gives me a time to reflect on what I heard, what I wrote. Fill in the notes before I forget and just tidy it up.
To now I am applying my drawings and notes to my Bible. My classroom roommate at school is a Pastor. I teach skills for living and he teaches Living the Bible. Different class times of coarse …his Bible is full of notes, underlines, highlights. Pages just warn and some falling out. But the character of this Bible I JUST LOVE! When I asked about it he told me how it has helped him to mark subjects and specifics places of topics. Which then in turn helps him to refer back when needed. Aided in his ability to learn scripture and specific topics in books. So I finally took the leap and yes I now draw and write in my Bible! I am just so excited to see where God is going to take me with using my love of art and color into His word.
Join me for my next post where I will share with you what I have discovered about particular Bibles that work well for creating in.
