I feel SO loved! The truly meaningful messages and beautiful art you shared really made my birthday extra-special this year. THANK YOU!!!
If you would like to see some of the gorgeous cards I received, most of them can be found in the Zenspirations® Create, Color, Pattern, Play Facebook Group, or on my personal Facebook page. I haven’t had a chance to read all of them yet… but the ones I’ve seen are super special. Thank you again!
I wish I could say that in addition to celebrating my birthday, I am also celebrating having finished my new book, Complete Guide to Bible Journaling: Creative Techniques to Express Your Faith. However my publisher decided at the last minute to add 12 extra pages of art to the bonus section, and I’m still trying to get them done. It is REALLY exciting though, because the bonus section will add amazing value to the book– 8 pages of full-color stickers (which include a complete set of tabs with the books of the Bible!), 8 pages of my illustrations and lettering printed on vellum, and 8 coloring pages, which can be perforated. I’m trying to design the pages where most of the art is only two inches wide, so it will fit into the margins of a journaling bible.
The vellum and sticker pages are already at the printers, and I am wondering what would be most useful to put on the coloring pages. The photo below shows the three different types of pages I’ve been working on. The one on the left features words to color, the one on the right features icons relating to light, and the one in the center has variations of a particular item (flower, bird, sun, star, heart, etc.) to give ideas of different ways you could draw the icon.
If you would like a chance to win a copy of the book when it is published in March, please leave a comment answering the following questions:
I’ll pick a name at random from everyone who leaves a comment on this week’s blog answering these questions. Thanks, in advance, for sharing your thoughts!
I also want to thank everyone who shared their thoughts on how to improve the Legacy poster that my daughter wants to use as one of her Kickstarter rewards. Here’s the final design:
We also created a ‘Listen’ poster, which uses the same art as the CD cover:
Both prints are among the rewards Sam is offering to those who support her Kickstarter. She will be in touch with those of you who expressed interest when it launches.
Before closing tonight, I wanted to send hugs and sympathy to my friend Janice, whose mom died today… since I believe that it is important to commemorate those we love, I made a piece for Janet in memory of her mom:
I hope it brings her comfort.
