Labor Day weekend art journal pages

My day started out at Starbucks and I fell in love with their new add campaign. The side of the cup says, "We don't want to just make your coffee, We want to make your day." They are the masters in advertising. When I saw the cup I said, "Awe, how sweet". Now the cup is sitting on my counter and don't want to throw it away. I'm such a sucker for great lines.

My friend told me that I would love the book and bible study called The Sacred Echo by Margaret Feinberg. Her other book sounds good too, Organic God. I would love to do a really good study with some women who love art journaling and we could do pages to go along with what we are learning. That is my dream anyway. I'm not sure who would be up to that with me but when I find them I am putting the coffee on and pulling out the pretty china. I guess I will have to pray about that one and see what happens. If you did the study already, I would love to hear what you thought.
These last two pages have many layers of paint and paper scraps on them. Some of the paint combinations have been fun to use. I will try to not say this everyday but Kelly Kilmer really makes her class worth the cost because she gives you so much. I love her style too.

The Stonehenge paper I am using is a dream. I have a few other kinds of paper I want to try but they are going to be beyond amazing to beat this paper.

I love all that! I haven't heard of those bible studies. I will have to check those out. Have done several good ones. I love the idea of journaling or painting during a study. My sister paints during our praise and worship service at church. She gets inspired by the words.
Have a blessed one. Hugs from Texas.

That church sounds really awesome Tara. And Mary, you and I are going to have to meet one day. I feel that you are a kindred spirit.
