I am feeling much better and happy to be blogging again! YAY! 😃
I couldn’t stay away from creating in my art journal for too long…
And discovered this sketchbook to be the perfect size for a little art!
Sometimes I think I have to make something BIG for it to be considered as ART…
Yet, this is not true! After all, flowers come in all shapes, color and sizes so why not art?
And art journaling isn’t about a MASTERPIECE…
But EXPLORING and creating…
And experimenting with different art mediums!
Who knows what discoveries I will make by creating a little art in my journal…
I encourage you to give it a try!
Plant a little art today…

I had a little leftover glass bead gel from a recent art experiment… so instead of wasting it, I added fluid acrylics in Turquoise and spread it on a scrap piece of hot press watercolor paper. I decided to add watercolor to it yesterday:
What would YOU do to complete it?
I’d love to hear your ideas!!
P.S. I’m thinking of making this a weekly feature on my blog… would you like to hear other creative ideas on how to complete a piece of art?! 🙂

Some days it is fun to splash watercolors around with my brush.
I did this abstract yesterday in my art journal:
I wasn’t thinking about anything in particular when I painted it. The colors remind me of summer and a flower garden.
What does it remind you of?

This year I’d like to create more balance in my life. This may mean something entirely different for you but for me I’d like to have one day a week to slow down, reflect and smell the flowers so to speak!
I have decided this day will be Sunday, so I’m calling it my Sunny Sunday.
This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
Sunday will be a day for me to read a book, write, go for a walk, take a nap or curl up with our cat on the couch. It is a day for sunny thoughts too – so my post will be something positive such as a quote, Bible verse or poem with a little art or photograph of nature.
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Gal. 5: 22-23
I will be scheduling my post in advance so I can take a day off from blogging too. I enjoy blogging but I need a day off from the computer. A day to recharge my own batteries – a day to unplug.
Let all who take refuge in You rejoice; let them ever sing for joy. Ps. 5:11
May you have a Sunny Sunday and I look forward to catching up with you on Monday!
P.S. These photos were taken in my backyard in December 2015. Can you count how many little birds are in the last photo?
