How to make your own Aquarelle Watercolour Pallet

 

I love working with aquarelle watercolours. I have found a lot of paints and colours in tubes in a couple of garage sales. But I noticed that I never used those paints. That’s why I wanted to have them in a palette, so I could go and play more with them. A friend saw my palette and asked me to make her one. I thought that would be a great project for a new blog. The picture above is the new palette I made her, and the last pictures of this post show my own and much older palette.

Bible (Art) Journaling

Formed in the womb of the mother

History:

For ages people have been writing important and/or personal things down in the margins of the Bible. And a lot of artists have made beautiful works of art based on biblical texts and subjects.

A newer trend is drawing, painting and writing in the Bible, in the margins or over the text on the pages, or in a special journal: Bible (Art) Journaling. You don’t have to be an artist to join the world of Bible (Art) Journaling. The time you spend with God and with His Word is more important than the product and the beauty of the page you are creating.
