Peace of Mind Books for Relaxation 

The other day I received these beautiful books by Linda Peters in the mail. They are Christian word search books that are in a large print format so they make it easier to read. The first book is on hymns and some are those old time hymns I’ve loved since a child!

The second book is on both Old and New Testament scripture verses.

If you’d like to check out these books, you can get them here:

DIY Handpainted Journals / Planners

Here’s a DIY gift idea for you. You can make some really pretty gifts items (or, to sell), by just purchasing some blank Moleskine journals and painting on the covers. They come in black or buff covers. Either works well. Here’s an example: Moleskine Cahier Journal (Set of 3), Large, Ruled, Kraft Brown, Soft Cover (5 x 8.25): set of 3 Ruled Journals For the inside, you can get either lined, blank or graph paper. I’ve seen non-Moleskine brands as well and sometimes these can be cheaper.


When painting the covers, use acrylic paints, but use as little water for mixing as possible. The more water that is added, the more likely you’ll have rippling of the covers.  Once the paint dries, lay a heavy book on top to help keep it flat. Then put in clear plastic sleeves and add a nice label to make it look professional.  Done!

New Paintings

I've been on a flower painting kick lately!  Here are a few photos plus some script signs I've been doing lately.

New Online Art Class

My newest online art class is ready for early registration!  Classical Figure Painting begins Sept 1, 2015 at Jeanne Oliver's creative network.  Click here to register.

This is a one week online course all about painting figures in the style of the Old Masters.


You can read more here:  Classical Figure Painting

The Renaissance period is my most favorite time in art. In part due to advances in materials, renewed interest in the classics and availability of patrons, artists experienced a rebirth which pushed their art to new depths. Figure painting was a common theme in this era and was a way to express stories of the past and present.


During this one week online class, we will create a group figure painting on canvas. I will take you through the process I’ve used when painting figures for murals, except in a smaller scale.

This class will cover: reference material resources, surface prep, sketching a classical figure outline, composition, the underpainting and painting the overlayers.


Please note that nude figure photos will be referenced online, and then they will be drawn and painted.

DIY Planner / Agenda

Here are some more photos of my planners. There are a few different ones shown. One is the same one I talked about in this post here. The other two are made using blank mixed media binders from Graphic 45 along with their patterned papers too.  

The Graphic 45 Mixed Media Album comes in black, ivory or kraft.  The ivory one has sort of a canvas-type finish that is a great surface for painting on. I painted a cloudy sky on the cover of my ivory one using acrylic paints.  


On the cover of the kraft one, I used a black Stabilo watersoluble pencil and brush to paint on a vine.



The albums come with pocket dividers, cardstock paper, vellum paper and kraft paper, so those are a great starting point to making a planner and dashboards too. I've been busy painting figures on my dashboards:

unnamed (2) unnamed (3) unnamed (4)

And, here are some more inside pages from my other planner, using lots of my artwork, washi tape and patterned papers from Graphic 45.

My New Planner

Ok folks, I'm getting on the planner bandwagon! Have you seen all the cute planner / day-timers that are out there? Check out the ones that Christy Tomlinson has been doing – they are so cute and inspiring. I think this will be a fun way to stay organized.  For now, I'm not getting a traditional planner cover/book, but am starting out with just a small A5 binder (from Staples) and am going to trick it out from there. (Staples also supplies clear sheet protectors, lined paper and other bits that fit this small sized binder.)  It's cheaper that way!  


I cut out the dividers / dashboard bases from scrapbook papers that I had. These ones shown are from Graphic 45. Also, I used some Project Life supplies. I can't wait to print off some of my own artwork and other inspo to decorate it with too. I'm also going to cut up some watercolour paper to insert in for random art creating or Art Journaling. 



The little calendar pages came from the local dollar store, plus I purchased printable project planning inserts and menu planning inserts from Strange & Charmed I mostly use Google Calendar so I will keep using that, but this planning method I will use for project planning, art class plans, etc. Keeping all my ideas/notes in one place instead of different closed off notebooks. I like that I can insert in and rearrange the order of my notes and plans wherever I like rather than being confined in a notebook as before.
