WAW: "God is good"

Hi there :D

Today another Word Art Wednesday message. 
We have the scripture from Psalm 107:1.  And that's so right on. God is so good. We can only give thanks to Him. 

What are you thankful for? 

This week I made another tag. I get the hang of it, I guess. And it's getting more and more familiar with me to create on such a small piece of paper.

So here it is:

And here's the video:

Hope you enjoy it.

WAW: Praise"

Hello dear bloggers,

Maybe a bit late, but I've been busy the past few weeks. So that's why I am not always around to check and comment on your blogs. Sorry for that. But I hope in a short time there will be more time to check your wonderful art and comment on them. I didn't forget about you!!

So, today it's Wednesday 21st. Time flies by so fast!!!
I made another tag this week. The scripture we have is from Psalm 34:1. And again (as always) a beautiful scripture. And again I have to think about a song with this verse. Don't know if you still remember Ron Kenoly? But I think he has a song with this verse in it. I've been searching on youtube, but I can't find it that easy. But maybe you know which song I mean.

Well, here is the word art:

And here is my tag, with some close up shots.

What I love about this scripture is that no matter your circumstances, you will bless the Lord, and a praise will come into your heart and you will speak or sing praise to God. Just start blessing and praising the Lord, even though you don't feel like it, because........... (well just fill in the blanks yourself ;)  ). But when you start to bless God, and to sing praise to Him, you'll notice that the sad mind you have, will become joyful  Not that the problem(s) you are dealing with is instantly removed, but just trust in God, give Him your heart and your praise. He so loves you and want to bless you and help you. I just get a lump in my throat just by typing this. Because I've noticed lately how much God blesses me. And after a year and a half of no sight of how things can be changed in my situation (my burn out and such), I feel joy!!!

And this morning  I had an appointment with my coach to search for a new job, she saw that I was glowing and that I really look good. That was so nice to hear that people see how I change in the good way :D
Well, bless the Lord for that, because it's all Him who works in me.

How do you stand in all this? Can you praise God, even though you are going through some rough circumstances/days? I just want to encourage you, even if you start a little bit grumpy on praising...... just start and you will notice, that the grumpiness will turn into singing and praising! God is sooooooo God, people.

Well, that's all for today. I can start preaching, but then this post will be LOOOOOONNNNGGG :-)

Here is my video of making this tag. I've noticed this one turned out better then the one last week (well, but that's my opinion).

Oh, and by the way, I've made a tutorial on how to make that flower. So if you only want to make that flower and not go over this video again.... just go to my YouTube channel:  swenny1980 and you will find it there ;)

Have a blessed day! And I will be praying for you.

Time for Word Art Wednesday

Hey bloggers,

Vandaag is het weer tijd voor Word Art Wednesday. Dit keer geen Art Journal pagina maar een tag.
Ik vind het erg moeilijk om op een klein stukje papier iets moois te maken. Maar ik wil mezelf ook eens uitdagen om andere dingen te maken die buiten mijn comfort zone liggen. Vandaar dus deze tag.

De tekst die we hebben voor deze week is Psalm 30:11-12.
Prachtige tekst en zo waar. Gelijk moest ik ook denken aan het liedje wat op deze tekst is geschreven (zie Youtube filmpje onder deze tekst.

Hi bloggers. 

Today it's time for Word Art Wednesday. This time I didn't make an art journal page, but a tag.
I do find it difficult to make art on a small piece of paper. But I want to challenge myself to make other things which lay out of my comfort zone. So that's why I made this tag.

The scripture for this week is from Psalm 30:11-12.
Beautiful scripture and so true. I immediately had to think about a song that's written about this scripture (see Youtube video below this scripture).

En hier nog een filmpje van hoe ik deze tag gemaakt heb.
And here a video of how I made this tag.

Mini album, my own design :D

Hey you guys and girls,

I am so excited, because last weekend I designed my very own mini album. And yes, I have a series of video's for you of how I made it. So if you want, you can make one yourself :D

Here are 2 pictures and the very first video on how it looks and what you'll need.

I used an old line of design paper from Cherry Art. I have them in my stash for quite some years, and now, finally, they turned out into this cute and happy mini album.

Here is part one of how it looks like inside and what you'll need.
And I want to do a daily upload on the next part of the series of video's.

Enjoy!!! :D
