Diamond Bead Painting Kits (Started in June...Continuing on through the months)

I recently got interested in doing bead painting.  Bead painting is kind of like paint by number - only instead of using paint, you use beads.
I really enjoy doing them.  It's fun and relaxing.

Bible Art Journaling

At Scrapbook.com they offer a lot of free classes that you can take.   I am doing a Bible Art Journaling  class called - Inspired Faith: Art Journaling In Your Bible with Rebekah R Jones.
This class has 10 lessons in it, and it's really good.  Rebekah shares her faith and the Word in each lesson that she does.  She also explains each lesson that she does extremely well.

Here are a few of the lessons I have done.

Into The Light & A Pastel Portrait

I took a couple of  Ivy Newport classes.
The first one is a free video class that she offers called 'Into The Light'.  It's a mixed media and Encaustic Wax class.  I really enjoyed doing this class, and I learned a lot in it.
Here is the project I made:
The wings are handmade using a thin wire and tissue paper, then sealed with the encaustic wax....and there are two coats of the encaustic wax on the board.

The second class I took is a paid class.  It's from her Ala Carte lessons.  It's called 'A Pastel Portrait'
It's the first time I used pastels, and it was enjoyable to work with.  
Here is the project I made:

Ivy is an excellent teacher, very helpful and she really explains each step along the way.
I will probably be taking more of her classes :)

November's Challenge At Scrapping Everyday Miracles

It's time for our November challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles!

 Scripture Focus for this month:
   Psalm 136:1
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good.  His love endures forever.


This month I did the Scripture Inspiration:
I did a journaling page in my Bible.  I used several colors of paint on the background.  The women giving thanks to the Lord was done with a stencil.  The 'Continually' and the Cross and Dove are stamps.   I wanted the Verse to stand out more on my page, so I printed it out in a larger print, distressed the edges and glued it onto the page.
