After trying to portrait an idea I had for an art journal page, I found myself looking an Art Journaling Gone Wrong…But Thankfully I had a Happy Ending! (See video)
I would love your help in growing my YouTube channel! Please as you comment here, copy and paste on my Youtube Channel! I so appreciate it!
Thank you for your encouragement to my YouTube channel!
I have to laugh because I can just see my husband’s face when I showed him what I was working on! I was halfway done with editing my video and I decided to ask him what he thought about my new artwork. I said; what do you think?. He responded; “what is it?” I said it’s a woman being held. His face changed and he replied;
“She doesn’t look like she is being held, she looks like she is being crushed!”
Oh my! It took me five minutes to process that! But after I took another step back to took a closer look at my art page, I knew I had to start over…which I did.
I learned a very precious lesson in the process. You see, when I was doing the first art journal page, I wasn’t in the moment. I was thinking about getting it done instead of enjoying “doing”. I am so glad I was faithful and instead of finishing that first video and taking the easy (and faster) route, I started over. I was blessed by starting over because it made me look at notes I had taken in my “Church Art Journal” and found a little in there that brought answers to questions I had about my second illustration! Here the video that explains how I was blessed by this experience.
Here are the 4 Stages of Faith which came handy when I was creating my second art journal page yesterday!
4 Stages of Faith
1- Risk obedience amidst uncertainty
2- Insist on the promise beyond probability
3- Seek the city of God over the city of men
4- Expect resurrection power now.
After I was done with my second art journal page, I was so please and proud of the work I was putting in front of people!
