I'm so excited to be announcing today, something that Erin from Art by Erin Leigh and I have been talking about doing behind the scenes for awhile!
We both love journaling and illustrating our faith, as well as creating art work from scripture (have you seen Erin's shop?? So much gorgeous art!) and as our workshop on bible journaling was wrapping up this summer we began to talk about how we could keep the momentum going.
We didn't want to lose touch with all of you who had joined us in the class and also wanted to keep art journaling together.
The best part about the workshop for both us was the amazing (and somewhat unexpected) blessing of the new friendships and encouragement that happened in our facebook group. So we discussed how we could keep that going and came up with Faith Art Fridays!
How Will it Work?
Each Friday Erin and I (and occasional special guests) will take turns posting faith art journaling prompts, tips, ideas and inspiration as well as sharing our journaling pages with you. I'll be sharing paper pages, hybrid pages and digital pages!
Then we'll all get together in our facebook community to share our art and encourage each other! Of course there will be free printables and other goodies along the way.

What is the Goal?
The goal is for us all to stay connected as a community of believers and artists and to inspire and encourage each other.
We're both so excited about this and we actually have one or two more surprises that we're working on and just can't share yet, so stay tuned for those announcements!
I hope you'll be joining us in creating art and most of all in spending time in His word together and speaking grace into each other's lives.
