Creative Wordship | Write the Word

It is about a week we stepped into the New Year. We all need new inspiration, new encouragement, new motivation, new vision, new resolution, and more new ideas.

At the beginning of the new year, I found this Life.Church Instagram Post that I found helpful and I wanna share these 5 Myth vs Reality about New Year Resolutions:

Myth 1: I need to change everything to be happy this year.

Truth 1: Real change starts with a renewed mind, not a new calendar. As Romans 12:2 reminds us, transforming our mind in God’s truth is the key to His perfect will for our lives. You don’t need January 1st to start afresh; every day is a new chance with God.

Myth 2: If I make grand New Year’s resolutions, I’ll be more committed.

Truth 2: It’s not the size of your resolutions but the daily small steps you take that lead to significant changes. Commit your plans to the Lord (Proverbs 16:3) and let Him guide your daily walk, not just your yearly goals.

Myth 3: This year must be better than the last, or it’s a failure.

Truth 3: Each year comes with its own set of challenges and blessings. Instead of comparing, learn to find contentment in all circumstances (Philippians 4:11-13). God is at work in every season of your life, molding you for His purpose.

Myth 4: A new year means I must find my purpose.

Truth 4: Your purpose isn’t hidden in the turn of the year; it’s found in your daily relationship with God. As you walk with Him, your purpose will unfold in His timing. Remember, purpose is a journey, not just a destination.

Myth 5: If I’m not where I thought I’d be, I’m behind.

Truth 5: God’s timeline is different from ours. He isn’t restricted by our schedules or societal expectations. Trust in His divine schedule; you’re exactly where you need to be for Him to work in you and through you (Ecclesiastes 3:11).

As you step into this new year, embrace the growth, the learning, and even the setbacks, for they are all part of His greater plan.

This year, I want to be more consistent doing little things and be realistic with my goals rather than comparing myself with others and doing unrealistic things.

I started with this Write The Word project on a small notebook every day. For me, writing down the Bible verses I read helps me to memorize them daily. I write it down not so that I can remember it later but so I can remember it now. It is also a way to train myself to focus on God and spend time with him.

This mini notebook is included in the December Creative Worship Inspiration Box (still available at the store, limited quantities!!!). I used the supplies (stamp sets, stickers, Lindy’s magical shaker, Zig Writer pen) that also included in this box to create these 3 pages and also these supplies:
Books of the Bible stamp set
Word Mapping stamp set
Your Story stamp set
Stitched Rectangle die set
Lines and Crosses mini stencil
Grunge Texture mini stencil
Grunge Dots stencil
Christ the King printable

I used Memento Dew Drop inks for stamping sentiments and images, and Distress Inks for adding texture with stencil on the backgrounds.

Let’s find hope in your new year resolutions with the truth. May God leads and guides you one step at a time.

Creative Worship | Write The Word Mini Notebook

Stepping into the new year, I pray to be more intentional in reading, meditating and writing God’s word daily. I pray for God to help me and guide one step at a time, to give me obedience heart to be in His word daily. 

”Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (‭‭Joshua‬ ‭1‬:‭8‬-‭9‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

This Mini Notebook Book from the December Creative Worship Inspiration is perfect as a start! I decorated the cover using supplies:
– December Inspiration Box: Vintage Type Alpha stamp set
– December Inspiration Box: Printable Clear Sticker

I also use couple more supplies from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps:
– Books of the Bible stamp set
– Lines & Crosses Mini Stencil

May your new year will be blessed for God is with you to guide you with His word daily. This is his promise.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. See you next time!

Clear Scraps | Mixed Media Art Journal – Peace and Be Still

Hello everyone! I hope you all are well and safe. Today I would like to share with you a new page of my mixed media art journal, Peace and Patience.

These two words speak loud in my heart lately, especially in my recovery journey and this uncertain time. God reminds me to be patience and be still in Him. He will give us hope and strength while waiting for Him in faith.

I am sharing a step-by-step tutorial with pictures at Clear Scraps Blog today so that you also can create it.

On my art journal page, I used Clear Scraps Stencils:

I got this new Zinnia Stencil a couple of moths ago and I knew it was time to use it for my art journal this month. When I work with stencils, I like to spray my stencils with Pixie Spray.

For the background, I used the Arteza Gouache (Silver, Yellow Ochre,Emerald Green, and Cerulean Blue) and White Gesso. I applied them on the page with the brayer.

I also used the Teal Woody Stabillo Watercolor Crayon and Black Woody Stabillo Watercolor Crayon on the page. I used a wet round brush to blend the colors and while still wet, I tilted up the journal to get some drips on the page. I dried the watercolor paint with craft heater.

And then, I added some old hymnal paper strips on the page using permanent glue stick. After that, I used a flat brush to apply some more white gesso on the paper stripes to blend them in.

I used the 6″ Zinnia Stencil. I applied some DecoFoil Aged Copper Metallix Gel with pallet knife. I carefully removed the stencil and carefully drying the gel with craft heater. But the best way is to let it air dry.

I added the 6″ Fruit of the Spirit on the page, and I used post it tape to mask the other letters around the word “Patience.” I added the VersaFine Clair Nocturne Pigment Ink on the stencil using foam dauber. I removed the stencil carefully because the pigment ink was still wet. After that I dried the ink with craft heart.

I repeated the same step for the next words, “Be Still” using the 3×12 Peace Be Still Border Stencil.

I added more flowers and leaves around the page to fill up the white space.

I added some white highlight around the Zinnia flower in the middle of the page using the White Woody Stabillo Watercolor Crayon and wet brush.

For more texture on the page, I added some paint splatters using Marabu Mixed Media Art Spray Cocoa and White Spray that I made my own. I dried the whole page carefully one more time with craft heater.

I hope this project give you an idea to create today. Thank you so much for stopping by our blog today. Have a wonderful day, crafty friends!
