Psalm 19 Devotion 💖

Join me as I share some things that God is speaking to my heart with! Tell yourself, “I am an artist!”, and bring in more sketching and doodling into your verse writing today. I started thinking more about God leading us. Psalm 19:7-14 MSG has so many good aspects to learn from: “The life-maps of God are right, showing the way to joy.”, “The direction of God are plain and easy on the eyes.”, “The signposts of God are clear and point out the right road.”, and “The revelation of God is whole and pulls our lives together.”

So I drew this girl to showcase these verses! She has a magical suitcase full of art supplies and a bird perched on her hand, singing. I love using birds as a representation for the Holy Spirit, and how God leads us by His Spirit.

I doodled the words that make this girl the Psalm 19 girl! She’s blooming, she’s looking at God’s life maps, she’s listening to God’s voice. Her...

Watercolor Cross with Flowers! 💐

 

“God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us - so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.” 2 Corinthians 5:21

We’re in Eastertide, so we’re drawing a cross with flowers around it! :) 

Step 1:

With a Faber-Castell size B, I’m sketching out the cross. Then, I’m drawing flowers all around the cross. 

Step 2:

With my favorite watercolor pink (I'm using Prima Marketing watercolors), I’m coloring in some of the flowers! Go in with a darker pink red and paint that in more of the flowers. I then chose orange for the other flowers. 

Now, with a yellow, I’m painting in the cross.

Step 3:

Add a squiggle line around the flower border with yellow, and add fun little doodads! I got my pen back out, and drew hearts and wrote “Love is here”, under the cross. Paint in the hearts and bubble letters with pink!

Step 4:

This is when you can add more details to the flowers! Bring more colors and patterns into the...

Happy Sunshine Day Watercolor! ☀️

doodle sunshine watercolor Apr 03, 2024
 

Let’s make a Happy Sunshine Day sun together! This sunshine can be a reminder to fight for joy!

Step 1:

Using a pen or pencil (I’m using my Faber Castell size B pen), Draw a circle, and little imperfect squares around it for the sun rays.

Step 2: 

with a smaller pen, write in bubble letters, “Happy Sunshine Day!” in the circle. In the sun rays, you can right whatever you like. For example, “God Love’s you!”, “have fun today!”, “smile”, “God is for you!”, “A cheerful heart fills the day with song” (Proverbs 15)

Step 3:

Now, using your watercolors, get into the yellow and paint your sunshine! *Tip* make sure you use a permanent pen if you plan to go over with watercolors, because permanent pen won’t smudge from the water!

I painted in some of the words with pink, and added dollops of pink throughout the sunshine. Then I went in with blue and orange and painted those all in the...

Matthew 5:14 Girl 💗

 

“You are here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept, we're going public with this.” Matthew 5:14 MSG

Step 1:

Using a pen, draw a border around the page of your sketchbook (I’m using a Moleskine sketchbook), adding little hearts in the corners.

Then, I’m going to start drawing a girl in the middle. Starting with half circle for the head, and two curves for the hairline. Finish off the top of the head with two curves and a wobbly circle on the top left to look like a bun. 

Then, draw two little lines for the neck and curve down for the shoulders and arms, where it almost is a triangle shape. Draw a horizontal line at the top of the shoulders for the top of the dress and bring the edges in as you come down to the waist. From the waist, bring the edges way out to create a big ball gown dress! Draw any details for sleeves, trims, flower belt, and draw little lines from the sleeves for the arms. Make the girls...
