Art Journal Challenge: Stencils and Clippings

Good morning, 
You haven't heard from me for a couple of days, 
that's not because I haven't been journaling, 
it's because I ended up combining two days of challenges.
Stencils and Clippings

James 1:3 Because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.

James is one of my husbands favorite books. 
He gets all excited whenever he reads it.
And this is such an amazing reminder of how important Faith is in our walk with God.

So for the first part of the challenge I used paint and an assortment of stencils.

If you've followed me any amount of time you know that this is a pretty standard for me!
I have started using a better quality acrylic paint, and I'm noticing a big difference,
Not as much muddling of the colors! 
So for the second part of the challenge I started by walking down to my mailbox
After I'd picked out the verse and written it down on my desk paper I started to cut out letters, and some words. 
I knew I wouldn't find perseverance, nor apparently did I spell it correctly the first time!

The good thing about clippings is that they are easy to cover the mistakes! 
So there! 
I don't usually mind mistakes, but I know spelling mistakes can be corrected.
So there you have it, a 2 in 1 art journal challenge, 
and knowing that we aren't ever perfect, but we can often fix the mistakes! 

Remember to leave a comment for a chance to win a set of Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks.


  1. I always love the challenge of turning a mistake into something beautiful, like He does in our lives, like He did before I even acknowledged Him > he make me clean!

    1. Thank you Cindy, that is so true, we don't deserve it, but He gives anyways!


Thank you for all your comments! They are the cherry on top of my sundae!
