Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

(You will find a little about the process of this journal page at the end of this post)

One of my favorite worship songs…
“You make me brave
You call me out beyond the shore into the waves
You make me brave
No fear can hinder now the love that made a way”

The lyrics of this song touch the hearts of millions because we can all relate to this struggle…

The struggle of once being paralyzed with fear.

Fear that prevents us from moving forward to the place that God Himself has prepared for us.

Amanda Cook shares her heart on writing this amazing worship song.

Hearing Amanda’s personal story deepens the connection to this beautiful song.

As we share our stories…we can see that we are all a part of the same story. God’s story.

The first step to my Journal page was to adhere some letter stickers and “paint” the word BRAVE using masking fluid.

Next step is to add color:)

Neocolor II are a favorite of mine.  You can use them wet or dry.

They can be applied like a crayon, but more often, I take a wet brush and pull color off the tip.

Below, I “colored” a stamp, then spritzed with a bit of water and stamped on the color.

Above, you can see how I “colored” with them like a crayon.  I then went back over each section with a brush loaded with water.  If you want to keep the areas from “bleeding” into one another, use a heat tool to dry between each area as you go.

I added a few doodles and stamps along with a simple border.

Hope this inspires you to create today!
