Sunday Sketches with Sophia!

Hello all and Happy Sunday! I have a couple of journal pages that I worked on this week.
This is a favorite day dream of mine. Me and my kids and their families living near each other!

I loved this pose I found in a magazine, so I wanted to practice it.

I journaled along the edges, "don't let fear of tomorrow, steal your joy today." She is praying for peace. With everything happening around the world and here in the states, it's hard not to worry about money, jobs and the future. I've been reading Joyce Meyer's book, "Battlefield of the Mind." She is a great teacher of this principle.
Here are a couple of pages I started and will add images to as the ideas come:


That's all for this week! I hope you will join me by going to Sophia's blog (see link to the right) and see the other wonderful artists who have participated this week. Have a fun day!
