So far these characters have been pretty simple to sketch. Join us next week for another adventure time character! Who is it gonna be???

Here is our process for this week if you’d like to sketch along:

Bible Journaling – Psalm 100

PSALM 100

1  Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
    Serve the Lord with gladness!
    Come into his presence with singing!

Know that the Lord, he is God!
    It is he who made us, and we are his;
    we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
    and his courts with praise!
    Give thanks to him; bless his name!

For the Lord is good;
    his steadfast love endures forever,
    and his faithfulness to all generations.

 

For the past couple weeks, we’ve been working on memorizing Psalm 100.  We used it this week for our Bible journaling.

I felt like painting a bird, and Roo felt like painting a person acting like a bird. Lol

Our pages naturally kinda end up along the same lines since we do them together all the time.

Psalm 100’s main idea is about giving thanks to the Lord. Praise him with singing! We honed in on that concept by decorating our pages with music notes.

Here is our process video!  Hope you enjoy!

Let us know if you journal the same page, we’d love to see some new ideas!

God Bless!

Doodle Doosday – Sketch Finn the human

In keeping with October’s Adventure Time theme, we’ve finally gotten around to drawing Finn the human. Finn is the main character of the show…  Well. I guess Finn and Jake are of equal importance…  but anyway, here are our sketches!

 

Finn, like all the characters so far, is a pretty simple sketch. He’s basically a rectangle with some skinny spaghetti limbs.

Join us in real time and sketch along:

 

Thanks for stoppin’ by!

Love, Fitty

Bullet Journaling – October

20170930_142724158_iOS

So I’m attempting to keep track of my tasks this month again with a Bullet Journaling system.  I didn’t get too fancy, but I was able to add some watercolor leaves throughout. I’m keeping the whole thing fairly simple to start. I attempted some Bullet Journaling over the summer, but I think I took on too much, and never could motivate myself to get back to it. So I’m trying again with a simpler set up and only two trackers. One for study and one for projects.

If you wanna see my process, here’s the video!

Thanks for stopping by, and hopefully I can do another spread for November and let you know how October went… lol.

Love, Fitty

 

Bible Journaling – Proverbs 8

For todays Bible Journaling page, we landed on Proverbs 8, and verses 10 and 11 stood out to us,

“Take my instruction instead of silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is better than jewels, and all that you may desire cannot compare with her”

So this is what we came up with:

20170928_165337119_iOS20170928_165200681_iOS

Roo wanted to show that someone was thinking, so she drew a lightbulb over her lady’s head. And then she added some jewels and stuff.

This is the first time I’ve done a more cartoon like character. I kinda think I might do more of this kind of doodling in the future. It kinda takes the pressure off to make it look realistic. My person is studying and as she studies more and more, she begins to show more fruit… which is why I added some fruit between the books in the stack… lol.  Silly…  but anyway…  and then I added my jewels at the bottom and lettered the words for part of the scripture.

We did a “quicker than usual” process video this time. Lol. Sometimes we just like to talk…  But anyway, lately I’ve been getting a lot of questions about “How” to Bible Journal. So I tried to explain a little during the video what I’ve been doing. Although I’m pretty sure there’s no wrong way, I found that when I actually thought about a way to kinda speed up the thinking process, things went a lot smoother. Sometimes it takes a while to put pen to paper because you feel like it has to be perfect… but it doesn’t. As long as it helps you carry God’s word in your heart and understand it better, than your job is done. As well, it has to be something you want to do. If you force yourself, then it’s going to cause stress and anxiety.

Here’s our process video:

Enjoy and God Bless!

Doodle Doosday! Sketch Jake!

Yay! It’s Doodle Doosday which means it’s time to get sketchy!

Today we drew us some Jake the dog. Jake is an awesome character because he can change his shape into anything he wants. He can stretch, shrink, and grow. He’s Finn’s best bud and is always helping him out when he’s in trouble. We could all use a friend like that…

So join us and doodle along!
Here is our process video!

Have fun doodling and God Bless,

Bible Journaling – Psalm 119, Verse 105

Psalm 119:v105:

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” 

This is the verse we are memorizing this week in Roo’s school, so we decided to Bible Journal it.

 

Psalm 119 has a lot to do with God’s word… essentially, the Bible itself and how we should use it. God’s word strengthens us, it upholds us, and it teaches us. If we are in God’s word every day, we become more and more aware of what it actually says, and not what other people tell us it says. I know that sounds ridiculous, but more and more I find people that never actually open the Bible and just rely on what they hear from others. The more we study it, the more we gain from it… the more wisdom is unveiled. If we are not using it, we are walking around in darkness; prey to any whim of emotion or tickling from wolves.

“My eyes shed streams of tears, because people do not keep your law.” vs. 136

Check out our process video as we discuss the verse a little and then do some journaling.

Thanks and God Bless!

Saturday Sewing Sesh- September/October 2017 plans

We will be doing quite a lot of sewing this year, and we thought we’d share what projects we’re planning for the next several weeks!

With Halloween around the corner, I realized that we’d better start on our costumes!

Our theme this year is Adventure time.

Our project list:

Fiona
Ice Queen
Ice King
Finn
Marceline
BMO
Jake
(Banana Guard)
So we took a trip to JoAnn fabrics this weekend with our cousin Jen and her daughter Kylie. (We are also making a Sleeping Beauty costume for Kylie so that’s a little side project… maybe we’ll share that too…)

I think we will tackle Fiona first, since that’s who Roo is being.

Fiona

We didn’t get any patterns for this because it’s pretty much a shirt and skirt…  So far I grabbed some snuggy white cotton poly blend for the bunny ear hat, and two shades of Green duck for the backpack. And to kill two birds, I got enough for Finn as well.

For the Ice King and Queen, I didn’t grab any material, but I did grab these few patterns.

 

 

The King is just a basic robe, so no biggie… but the Queen I’ll have to kinda piece together something out of these two patterns and some imagination.

So that’s my starting point so far. We will keep you updated next Saturday as to how we’re doing or if we’ve made any progress. Lol…

Here’s a link to youtube if you would like to watch us babble about our sewing plans! Yay!

Saturday Sewing Sesh

Join us tuesday for a Doodle video! We will be drawing an Adventure time character!

Who will it be?

Adventure Time Finn 3


Finn, Jake or BMO????

Friday Scrapbooking – 3D glasses

Yay! It’s friday!

This week’s layout is a bit mixed media….

img_3512

The photos:

So Eleanor has this fish bowl of glasses in her room. Sunglasses, funny glasses, light up glasses, and 3D glasses she collected from whenever we saw a 3D movie. One day she decided to pop out the lenses in one of the black 3D’s and just wear them to compliment her outfit. Since that day, she’s been wearing them a lot. Besides people offering to clean her lenses, I think they look pretty cute.  lol.  Though I warn her that she will probably end up needing glasses anyway based on the family’s eyesight. But… who doesn’t need glasses these days?

img_2206

So I started snapping pics and she started posing… and within a day, it was in the scrapbook.  lol.

I used two sheets of paper from a paper packet from CTMH.  One of them had lines and I was going to journal on it, but I decided to pop circles out and make a background. I used washi to fill in the circles from behind and then sewed down the paper to the polka dot background.

Then I used texture paste and a stencil to add the arrows on top. The rest of the embellishments are made of the circles I punched, some lace, watercolor, and some thread.

Oh, and also, before cutting out the photos, I used some blue watercolor on them. I kinda wanted that blue to be a theme in the page.

I didn’t use a “kit” per say…   I pulled some paper from my CTMH stash, and the rest is watercolors, texture paste, and some sewing.

For the full play by play, you can watch the process.


Have a great weekend!
