Lines, Leaves, Flowers and a Ghost!

 Hello crafty friends!

Today I am sharing some recent makes.

The first is a bible journaling page I did yesterday after watching THIS lovely video by AhMadArt on YouTube.  I tried both her scenes and techniques.  I didn't do the little water scene that great, but I love how my bible journaling in Psalms came out.  I definitely will try something like it again.  

So fun and splattering, painting, and thinking of how God is with us, was very calming!  I am also linking this to the **Art*Journal*Journey* theme for October which is Hold the Line (Lines).  Such a fun theme that Chris chose.

All was done with my $6 watercolor set because it is the easiest to find and use.  

Here are a few more creations:

I drew the tulips and embossed and painted the embossing on the background.  This was for two challenges on Splitcoaststampers.  It is going off to a lovely lady turning 102 that loves bows and red&yellow tulips.

This last one is a spooking Halloween card I made after losing a ghost magazine between the grocery store and home - true story!!  Used all DRS Designs stamps including the recent leaning ghost and Mountain and Treeline 2-in-1 stamp.  Lots of sponging and distressing on the background and the main panel.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugz, Nancy


  1. Beautiful trees on your "line" page Nancy. It is perfect for Chris' challenge and for Art Journal JOurney. Thanks for joining us. Your other art is beautiful also. I love the spooky ghost piece too. And did you get my email the other day? I had a question for you. Have a great start to your weekend. Hugs-Erika

  2. Wow, Nancy, three wonderful pieces! Love the trees and dappled leaves in your Bible journaling, and the tulips, and that gorgeous ghost. I think a bored ghost must have stolen your ghost magazine, they can be so naughty! Thanks so much for linking your beautiful art to AJJ, much appreciated, hugs, Valerie

  3. 3 More Stunners! I saw your tulip card at Splitcoast and did a double take when I realized that your drew them! The first card and journal page...There's not enough words to give it justice...Just amazing work.

  4. A fabulous journal page Nancy and I think your little water scene is lovely - very peaceful.
    Your tulips are beautiful and I love the Halloween card, it's going to be a strange Halloween this year!

  5. Oh Nancy! I am very happy seeing this inspirational page liked to my theme at Art Journal Journey. I have already taken myself off to look at the video and really want to get back to my Bible journaling so Thank you for the nudge! Your tulip drawing is also wonderful! Your little ghost looks quite indignant that your magazine went missing! Have a great weekend, Chrisx

  6. I'm incredibly late visiting, but couldn't wait to see what beauties you had created for us. I was especially impressed with the page you created for Chris's theme at Art Journal Journey. It is stunning, but so are the tulips and your ghost card. It's too bad you lost the magazine, but it was great inspiration for that entry. Thank you again for linking at Art Journal Journey.

  7. Fantastic pages Nancy and so inspiring. Thank you for linking to Chris's theme at Art Journal Journey.

  8. Wonderful art, Nancy. I love the Bible journal art. Thank you for the link to AhMadArt. Eileen xx

  9. Such beauty! I love your Bible journal page with the autumnal colours and leaves 😁. The cards are beautiful too, such fabulous designs! Take care! Hugs, Jo x

  10. Beautiful artwork Nancy, I love your bible journaling.

  11. That is a gorgeous watercolour card, such a lovely peaceful scene.
    The Halloween card is stunning with the complex background and the really sweet ghost.
    I wonder how your ghost magazine managed to make its escape between shop and home.
    The tulip card is beautiful too.

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This

Milkshake Malt Porter and a Bit of Art

 Hello friends and Happy T-day. It has been hit or miss with me lately on T-day posts. The remodel of our house next door has taken our mental and physical energy.  I think a few more weeks and things will be on the contractor instead of us.  Hopefully I will be back to normal by then. My Oldest Darling Daughter asked if we wanted to come for dinner Saturday.  Translation:  go to the store with me and we will bring part of dinner to your house and you cook the rest.  While at the store, I saw one 6 pack of this fun milkshake porter so, of course, I bought it.  It smells wonderful (a hint of chocolate and a hit of malt) and has a light creamy taste.  I would definitely buy it again if I see it.  My son-in-law did not like it, but he is more a  Miller Lite fan.  Now if this had been a whiskey, he would have been all over it.  LOL.  Linking this to Elizabeth's blog for the T-party gang. Darling Daughter had tried her hand at dried pintos, and she rocked them (I will begging for a rep
