Documented Life Project - Week 37 - doodling with white pen

I've kinda fallen in LOVE with this creation. It's funny that I love it so much because I used to hate using hearts in my craft and art projects. Now, I see hearts in nature and I just can't resist using them! The prompt for the week was to use white pens. I went crazy and had tons of fun while listening to the worship team rehearse and waiting for my kids who were at AWANAS. I think I've become a white pen addict!

The main heart on the bottom is a leaf I found in the parking lot last Monday after leaving ballet rehearsal. Later in the week God gave me these words to say and I knew I had to write it down in the journal, "If you focus on only the art, you will miss his HEart!" 

Those words have become my new motto when doing my #artworship in my Bible. I don't ever want to get to a place that I'm just focusing on the art and only thinking of myself. I want to be sure I truly am spending time with HIM and focusing on HIM and letting the HOLY SPIRIT move in me to create. I love how God does that, put words in my mouth.

I used my favorite white journaling pens and a Sharpie Poster Paint Pen for all the doodling.

September 2014 - Week 36 in my weekly pocket scrapbook album

I'm excited to share with you a few things today in addition to my scrapbook page! My weekly pocket scrapbook page is using all scraps from my organizational containers and my mixed media supplies and collaging. It was so fun to get messy, tho, I still kinda miss the ease of digital/hybrid scrapbooking. I need to do this more often, just to play and not hoard all my supplies.

Like I said on Friday, I added some more layering/collaging to my title card, to add in the orange touches to the predominately pink and aqua color scheme. I also added lots of doodling like usual.

The second thing I wanted to share with you is that I've been invited to join the Silhouette Circle Affiliate Program and already have tons of tutorials coming on Workflow Wednesdays using my Silhouette Portrait cutting machine. I can't wait to share these awesome tutorials with you and to also share my love for my Silhouette Portrait. Like I said last Wednesday, I love that the Silhouette Portrait does everything the Silhouette CAMEO does, only in a much smaller size. Since I use the print and cut feature practically every week and I work in pocket sized pages, I've found that I didn't need the larger format.

They have two really awesome deals going on that are so perfect for your pocket scrapbooking. I will have a tutorial coming on Wednesday using the Silhouette Adhesive Cardstock. (must use code ADHESIVE at checkout for discount to apply)

Also, they have a great deal going on for the Silhouette Portrait, and I'm excited to be sharing with you a mixed media tutorial using the sewable fabric interfacing in the works! I may be a little giddy about this tutorial! I think you'll love it too and can't wait to share it with you!

Mixed Media Tutorial: 4"x6" pocket collage art

I've been enjoying a lot of art time and wanted to share with you my favorite style of art today. I love collage art! I love to layer pattern papers and then paint over them and doodle and stamp and just add more and more layers until I'm actually finished.

Art Journal Bible Tutorial: Finger Painting - 1 Samuel 16

Oh SNAP! I found this piece in my scrapbooking supplies and totally giggled thinking David's brothers must have totally felt that way after God chose the "runt" of the family to be the next king.

Guest Blogger: Katie of Punk Projects shows us 3 techniques for alcohol ink backgrounds

Last month while I was on vacation, I guest blogged on the Punk Projects blog with a fun mixed media frame painting tutorial and I'm excited to have Katie join me here this week to share these fun mixed media background tutorials! I have never tried alcohol inks and after seeing this tutorial they are definitely on my wishlist of things to play with! Please help me welcome Katie to my blog!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Hi everyone, I'm Katie from Punk Projects. I love scrapbooking and card making. I've been getting more and more into mixed media and I love using mixed media techniques on my cards and layouts.

Today I wanted to share how I made these fun, artsy backgrounds for these cards using Tim Holtz alcohol inks. If you haven't tried alcohol inks, they're a lot of fun to play with. I'm just sharing a couple of my favorite ways to use them, but there are lots of techniques online. 

You're going to need glossy paper (photo paper or yupo paper works good.), alcohol inks, alcohol ink blending solution, and an alcohol ink applicator. Time to get messy!
