Creative Every Day - Light

While  I haven't been well the past 2 weeks and things have been so busy ... I just scribbled this simple art.

Was feeling rather down and flowers somehow makes me feel more happier. :)

So here's what i did.

The flower actually represents ME. Lol. I needed to keep looking upwards to the heavenlies to feel the warmth and strength from our Lord.

Have a blessed day! *hugs*

Groupon Love Doodle Contest

Firstly, my millions apologies for being absent these past 2 weeks! :/

I haven't been well. was having a bad bough of flu, cough (still recovering) and there was also the Chinese New year.

So, for my first post, I was really excited to enter my doodle into the Love Doodle Contest run by Groupon.


Actually, the doodle caught my eyes and I went ahead and doodled, doodled, doodled! It's been a while since I been doodling.

So, here's what I came up with! :) Hope you enjoyed it! *hugs*
Have a Blessed day!

C is for Creativity

Facebook Group
For this page, I could not really add in my journalling thoughts but I'll say it here. :)

How creative do you think you are? Do you struggle with fear where your creativity is concerned?
I believe I am very creative but I do struggle with fear when it comes to my creativity. I sometimes feel I am not good enough to be called an artist. But am overcoming it now... slowly but surely.
If you have dealt with this fear, how did you tackle it?
Slowly but Surely! :)
Apart from art or crafting, in what other areas do you express your creativity?
I also like to playing about with cooking recipes. I am definitely not one to be able to conform to a recipe as it is. I tend to change them according to my liking and spontainety. :)

This page was a first experience with painting with salt. I had fun exploring and experimenting with it.

Here's what I did. :) hope you enjoyed your visit here! *hugs*
Have a blessed weekend and a Prosperous gong Xi Fa Cai to all my Chinese friends!

B is for Believe

Facebook Group
For my second journal page on An A to Z of me, I wanted to use the new Fluorescent crayons which my daughter got me. A new toy for me :P I wanted to use them for some time but never knew when or where to use it on. LOL.

So, I thought it would be great to use it for this second page.

Have you ever wondered, the word BELIEVE is so simple yet, one of the hardest to do?

Norman Vincent Peale once quoted: Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.

That's so true. And to strengthen this word, Philippians 4:13 says:
I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

I love this Verse. It gives me the strength when I needed it most.

Everyone believes in something. What do you believe in? What do you put your confidence in?

I believe in God. And my confidence is definitely in Him.
So, here's what I came out with. Sorry, it's a little messy. It's my first time using crayons after playing with water colours for some time. :)

But, I do kind of like it though. Its not perfect. 

Have a blessed day! *hugs*

A is for Adventure

Facebook Group

I am participating with this group An A to Z of Me on journaling about myself for 28days. Its really an exciting experience for me. If you are interested in joining in, you can still do so! Just click on the blinkie above.

We were given some prompts to help us get going. Below are the Journaling, Bible Verse, Technique challenge for us to follow. I could not do the distress technique as I do not own.any distress inks. :)

But that's the awesome part about Art Journaling, there are no hard and fast rules. Everyone is allowed to explore their creativity according to their own interpretation.

If money, time, age and commitments were not a problem, what adventure would you like to take?
I wrote, I would love to take my family on a vacation to Disneyland, go on a Pilgrimage to Jerusalem, take up an Art Course and explore more techniques on Art Journaling

It is only in adventure that some people succeed in knowing themselves - in finding themselves. Andre Gide

Bible Verse
I will make a highway across the mountains and prepare a road for my people to travel. Isaiah 49:11 (GNT)

Technique Challenge
Try Distress Ink Bleachout on your page today

So, here's what I did.

Have a fun filled and blessed day! *hugs*

Postcard Swap

This is the first time ever have I participated in a Postcard Swap. I was really excited about this. But when I actually got down to doing it... I was stuck! Stucked for ideas! lol.

Anyhow, I thought it was be really neat to swap something that's related to the Chinese New Year which is fast approaching. Since I am one who also celebrates this auspicious celebration. :)

So here's what I did.

for Tina Whittmer

for Ellie Quinn

for Katie Romo
Hope you enjoyed your visit here! Have a Blessed and Prosperous Chinese New Year!
Gong Xi Fa Cai! *hugs*

I finally got my swap postcards! I am so excited to show them to you! Aren't they awesome? I think so too! :)

Have fun and be blessed! *hugs*
