Bible Stories From The Heart

I have been doing a series of Bible Studies online from
Bible Stories From The Heart 
 
Leslie Eaton offers several online Bible Study workbooks.  Each workbook study has five lessons in them.  You can purchase the workbooks on Amazon.   Each lesson has a coloring page with it.
  She also offers a Facebook group page that is very helpful. 
I recommend checking these Bible Studies out.  Leslie does such a great job in breaking everything down and explaining everything.  She emphasizes that the Bible is God's Love Letter to Us.
 
The first study I did is called 'New Beginnings'
The lessons in this workbook are:
1. You - A New Creation
2. Dusting
3. Sanding
4. Covering
5. Protecting
Here are the art pages for them:

 The second study I did is called 'Draw In Nearer'
The lessons in this workbook are:
1. Mary & Martha
2. Calling Sinners
3. Come Behold
4. Meditate On These Things
5. Humble Yourselves Under God
Here are the art pages for them:

The third study I did is called 'Faith Sprinkles'
The lessons in this workbook are:
1. The Necessity Of Prayer
2. The Power Of Personal Experience
3. Evil People Can Corrupt
4. Faith Without Works Is Dead
5. Consider The Fireflies
Here are the art pages for them:


There are several more studies that I will be working on.

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 :)
