I'm back! (WOYWW)

I can't believe I have been missing from blogland for so long! Half-term and then Tim's birthday  have kept me away so apologies.  I did see some spectacular fireworks
and a wonderful rainbow over the beach in Somerset while I was away,
as well as a wonderful sunset. More photos of our adventures will follow on Friday.
Now for the reason that you are here...it is Wednesday (nearly) and so as my entry to WOYWW here is my desk looking remarkably tidy following a journaling session.  To the left of the desk you can see my notepad on which I sketched out the design and decided on the wording for the page.  You can see the completed page, some pens, a pencil, paintbrush and the black acrylic paint used for the figure and at the back of the desk is a small stack of watercolours (used for the sky).  The infamous mug of tea is missing as it is currently being filled by Tim!
Here is the finished page which is all about trusting in God's promises and His strength when it all feels too much. Rainbows always make me think about God's promises due to the story of the flood hence the rainbow being so prominent on the page.
I promised you ages ago that I would show you the finished shepherd page so here it is...The Lord is my Shepherd. The background was watercolour, the figures were black acrylic paint and the tree is a stamp. I used a white pen for highlighting. That is all from me for now.  Take care and have a good week.  I will be back on Friday with some fun Alex photos I promise.

Beautiful journal pages and lovely scenery pics too. We like the way you took inspiration from what you'd seen to create the rainbow page.

Caro - those pages are beautiful! How amazingly true that our Father God cares and protects us in and through everything. I have known this care for many years now, and it still amazes me each time I see it.
Thanks for visiting earlier.
