With two major moves in a year, I've been a little stressed out. My art supplies have been pretty much packed away because there was no place to unpack and set them up. I stuck to coloring most of the time. It's a great stress reliever and doesn't take up much space.
But lately, I've had the 'itch' to do more. While digging through a box a week ago, I found my 5x7 Strathmore mixed media book. That led me to open more boxes and pretty soon I had accumulated a few supplies to help me with my 'need' to illustrate my thoughts on paper. I created this art journal page using Gesso, liquid inks, a Prismacolor marker and paper flowers w/ stick on centers. Since my handwriting is not anything to praise, I printed out the lettering using a design I made with Picmonkey.

These words resonate with me because ofcircumstances that have arisen in my life recently. They are based on numerous Scriptures I've read but mostly Proverbs 16:24 where it says ~
Pleasant words are a honeycomb,
Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
Father, make my words pleasant.
