WOYWW: Post Jakarta

Here is my desk today with my journaling bible opened up to my latest page...

I tried using some acrylic paint and Zig Scroll & Brush pens (newly purchased during my recent trip to Jakarta, Indonesia).

The view from our hotel in Jakarta was clouded by haze from Indonesia's worst agricultural fires in years. This is the illustration I made while I was there...

That's it for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday and Word Art Wednesday! What have you been up to?

WOYWW: Bible Journaling

My bible journaling is in full swing! Here is my desk for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday with an illustration in progress.

After getting over the reluctance to draw on a new, empty bible, the next pages were much easier to make.

Unlike my prayer journal illustrations which are quickly kept away after the journal is done, I'll be able to see these illustrations for quite some time. It will be nice to see this bible filling up! And it is always good to have some visual reminders to help me live out my faith.

Thank you for dropping by. I hope all is well with you.  Happy WOYWW, have a great week ahead!

WOYWW: Just do it!

After staring at the blank margins of my journaling bible, I finally took the plunge and did my first illustration! I think the thought of having a blank bible on my desk again for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday pushed me to, as the popular ad line says, "Just do it!"  Since the pages are so thin, I decided to start with using just a Pigma Micron pen and some colored pencils.  

As you can see, I did some major pencil sharpening, and I'm not done yet. I think I need to buy some new sharpeners. 

That's it for this Wednesday's desk!  What's on yours?

WOYWW: Fear of Blank Pages?

My new bible journal is still blank, waiting for me to make the first illustration on its wide margins.  I guess I am a little bit afraid of starting on those nice blank spaces.  Have you ever felt that way with a new sketchbook or journal?

I finally took off the plastic wrap and turned it to the verse I've decided I will illustrate first, one of my favorite verses, "Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you." Matthew 6:33.  Hopefully, by next week, I can show you what I have done for my "Illustrated Faith" project.

You may think I have gotten my desk cleared up but I guess there is always something that comes along to fill it up.  This time it is some clearbook binders which I will use to organize some travel memorabilia. See how I have again used the push back method to make some space!

That's it for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday this week.  And for Word Art Wednesday, an illustration for my reflection on John 15:19...

Wishing you a blessed week!
