I'm a practical gal. I make scrapbook pages because I can see the purpose of them- remembering moments of time and recording history, capturing youth and joy and heart ache, loving family and friends. I also love art- I really do see the value of a piece that brings forth strong emotion but I have yet to really work towards creating art for art's sake. I find it brave and bold those who do.

That being said, my friend Sonia enjoys creating art just for the sake of creation. Her art journals are spectacular and inspire me. They have even inspired me to start a prayer journal. Perhaps more a journal with scriptures and notes to capture the love I have for Jesus and that the Lord has for us.

Here is my VERY first page in my journal. I haven't even given the journal a name yet. Not sure it needs one. Maybe one will come to me later. I used the FAITH line by MOXXIE with a background of yellow paint. A few torn strips of paper glued on and the Bible Versus are already printed on lovely stickers by MOXXIE.

The torn strips reminds me that God does his best work with the broken. Throughout the Bible, those who are sinners and broken are those who God uses for the glory of his kingdom. What an inspiring message because I don't know a single unbroken, perfect human.

My artistic friend Sonia took the same MOXXIE Faith line and created this canvas. I love how the papers are versatile enough to work with a variety of colors. Look at the texture she created. And I get to hang this in my home!

Look at me- I'm making art!!
