I've been extremely inspired by sketch journals lately. As you can tell from my pinterest board. I thought I would share with you some of my journal pages.
The first page: This is just a bunch of things that describe me or that I really like. I wanted to do it in a very typography way, but you can only come up with so many font types. *wink* The second page: I was just having fun with one of my favorite colors. Currently I'm really into anything done in ink. So the little postage stamp was my first try at doing something like that
The first page: This is my new years journal entry, which is the same as this post here.
The second page: One of my favorite bible verses from Esther, as well as some notes from that Sunday's sermon.
The first page: An entry about making a medieval dress which I'm still working on. I did a french seam for the first time. A sample of my fabric as well as some embroidery ideas.
The second page: Some sketches I did of a little mockingbird who has been coming around this winter.
The first page: This was a sketch that I did after watching Jack the Giant Slayer. It's a beanstalk. I'm still deciding if I want to do it over in ink or not.
The second page: This is a cute little doodle I did. It is not at all as big on my journal page as it looks here.
Do you keep a sketch journal? What are some of your favorite things to draw?
Well my dear readers, I'm must apologize. I have neglected you again, let us blame it on the weather. Which has absolutely nothing to do with it, but was the only thing that came to mind.
It is my great pleasure to present to you a couple of obsession based projects.Contrary to what you are probably thinking and the evidence of my posts, it is not based on Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit. It is actually Doctor Who! I was introduced to the show by my older brother in 2010. I first watched all of Ten's episodes, then proceeded to watch Nine's and finely Eleven's. It went something like this: Ten was cute, Rose was okay. Ten was cute, Donna was okay. Ten was cute, Martha was awesome. Noooooo come back Sally Sparrow!!! Nine was great, oh it's Rose again...OMGOSH IS THAT ELEVEN? calm down And Amy? I'm going to die this is so good!!! Immediately turns into a obsessed fangirl. And that explains my obsession timeline basically to the present time.
So on to the projects, the first of which was done for a Christmas present 2012. The second has just been completed and I have no idea what to do with it. So so...pictures.... Ignore the horrible quality, the in-progress pics were done at night...in the laundry room....
It is a Doctor Who pillow with a TARDIS cross-stitch. Yes, I know it's just to much awesomeness.
These pictures on the other hand were taken just the other day with a new camera. A Canon EOS 40D, simply awesome!
If there is anyone out there who wants the pattern for the cross-stitch, you can email me at email@example.com and I'll send it to you.
And this is the Dalek cross-stitch that I just finished. No idea what to do with it. Suggestions?
So that about sums up this post. What have you been doing lately with your obsessions?
He seemed then to kneel, and His eyes met with mine . . . and He tenderly said, "I could give you a sign. I could shake the heavens and darken the sun. I could raise the dead and cause mountains to run.
"I could give all you seek and pleased you would be. You'd have what you want, but you wouldn't know Me. You'd not know the depth of my love for each saint. You'd not know the power that I give to the faint.
"You'd not learn to see through clouds of despair; You'd not learn to trust just by knowing I'm there. You'd not know the joy of resting in Me When darkness and silence are all you can see.
"You'd never experience the fullness of love When the peace of My spirit descends like a dove. You would know that I give, and I save, for a start, But you'd not know the depth of the beat of My heart.
"The glow of my comfort late into the night, The faith that I give when you walk without sight. The depth that's beyond getting just what you ask From an infinite God who makes what you have last.
"You'd never know, should your pain quickly flee, What it means that My grace is sufficient for thee. Yes, your dearest dreams overnight would come true, But, oh, the loss, if you missed what I'm doing in you.
"So, be silent, my child, and in time you will see That the greatest of gifts is to truly know me. And though oft My answers seem terribly late, My most precious answer of all is still . . . Wait."
I think 2013 will bring me many more
responsibilities both fun and hard. I think it will also bring much
change. I feel a longing for the old and almost dread the new. But well I
know that 2013 may bring me pain. I also know it may bring me much
happiness. And so I will throw my heart open to it. I will let God do
with me what he will. I will trust Him with my happiness. And so come
2012, throw what darts you will, my god is a shield and he has promised
good things for me. Goodbye 2012, I thank God for you. Welcome 2013!
