Well, I got inspired and again, took my advice and put my journal page on canvas. A hard back 16 x 20 canvas! It was so cool to paint on something so BIG! I love it! I love praising my Saviour through art! The Cross is made out of paper that has Psalm 23 printed on it in gold, and although you can’t see it real well in this picture, it is beautiful to look at 🙂 You can find more details on this piece of art at Daily Art Journal.
Here’s a close up of the tag with Luke 9:57 –
Happy Simply Living with Jesus!
A while back I found a tutorial on Pinterest showing how to make a cover for my journal out of plaster. The tutorial was made by Ivy Newport and it’s worth your time if you are wanting to learn how to make a plaster journal cover as I have. Ivy is quite delightful and I really like the music she chose for cheerful listening while she worked through her project.
Although I have finished my plaster cover, I am still not sure what I want to paint on it, so it remains blank. But here’s a picture of how it turned out:
The cover turned out so cool! It’s very smooth after sanding it down and I cannot wait to paint on it.
I have finished three of the journal pages within, and I wanted to show one of them to you. I really like how it turned out, kind of vintage style and I think I’m going to put a version of it on canvas. I have two special family members that have requested a picture and I think this may be it. We’ll see what happens. Here’s a close up of the page and you can see the rest of it on my Daily Art Journal page. I call it “Luke 9:57”.
I noticed that Ivy said she had taken some classes with Jeanne Oliver, so I looked her up and found out that she is a beautiful Christian artist. I decided to go through her “Becoming/The Unfolding of You” free video course and it is beautiful and I love it. Again, if you are looking for something to do this summer with some fellow Christian women, I highly recommend this course. It’s worth it.
Here’s a part of that journal page I wanted to share with you. I hope you enjoy it 🙂
