My Brother-in-laws Birthday Rooster in alcohol inks

Hi everyone, this is the alcohol ink rooster card that I sent my brother-in-law for his birthday this week. I used alcohol inks from Tim Holtz and Jacquard on yupo paper. I just love this medium and love trying to control it and make textures with it.

Bible Art Psalm 22:29 "Bow Down to HIM"

Hi everyone, I thought that i'd share another bible art journaling page with all of you today. 
"All who go down to the dust will Bow down before him."  Psalm 22:29.
I decided to make a silhouette journaling page. I used my Arteza brush pens to color this in with today and then blended with water. I primed the page first using a Clear Gesso. The verse was hand written except for the stickers that I used for All. 
I have been bible art journaling like a crazy woman lately so  I have several pages that I could share so keep your eyes out for them.

Bible art journaling page using James 1:19

Well I thought it was time for me to get back to the most important thing in life (scripture) and bible art journaling.
This is one of those verses that I always have to remind myself of.
"Be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to get angry" James 1:19


I drew the turtle and the snail looking at photo's online
Die cut letters from Whimsy Stamps- They came in a grab bag that I bought for  $10 along with 9 other dies. Just let me say that this was so worth the money and more.

Abstract painting of waterfall using Jacquard alcohol inks

I'm still practicing with my alcohol inks. I've been watching several people on youtube and collecting their tips on alcohol ink painting. I love watching youtube. This is what I came up with on my own and I actually like it. I had no idea what I was going to make when I started this painting.
I think that is why bottled alcohol inks are so fun though,
