Posting some new things I have been working on lately!

I am really trying my hand at art journaling.  I became interested when I picked up a magazine on art journaling and thought to myself, "I can do this."  So, I have gathered some of the materials needed to pursue this hobby.  I already scrapbook, so why can't I do this?????  I am working on doodles right now.  I really love them and seem to be able to do them well.  I also want to learn how to do mixed media.  That is on my to do list for this year.  I have also taken the Pinterest plunge.  No one told me that it was that addicting!!  I have seen so much inspiration there and have so many new ideas not just for scrapbooking and car making, but also for drawing and doodling.  So, I am going to post some of my new stuff here in hopes it will upload to Pinterest correctly.  I am still a little technically challenged.
The page with the blades of grass on the side and the poem in the middle is one that I did after reading a poem in a collection by Grace Noll Crowell.  Very interesting collection of poems, many of them are very inspirational.  The second picture with the 23rd Psalm was one I made for one of my patients at work when they were really struggling with being so sick.  My patient told me that it was their favorite Psalm.  I think it helped to carry my patient through a very difficult time.  So, if you like them, please let me know.  Repin, comment, etc., just let me know what you think about it!  Thank you so much for looking and please browse through some of my other work while you visit my blog.
