Documented Life Project March 21 (Week #12) Using Peerless Watercolors (PART 1)!

Hello everyone! Today, I am sharing the art journaling portion (PART I) of my DLP layout for the March 21 challenge.

March 21
Art Challenge: As a Focal Point
Journal Prompt: "Coming into Focus"

Two years ago, I found this amazing Pinterest photo of an eye looking upward with a heart shaped pupil and rainbow colored iris. It is the PERFECT interpretation for this week's "focus/focal point" journal prompt. I decided to couple it with Hebrews 12:2 for some biblical inspiration.

"Fix your eyes upon Jesus, the author & finisher of our faith"
Hebrews 12:2

It is truly amazing how the small, insignificant things in life grow strangely 'dim' when I focus on the one, true God who is GREATER & sovereign over ALL!

This past weekend, while shopping at Target, I spotted this weekender makeup bag by Sonia Kashuk. I was initially struck by the funky vibe of the paint streaks. However, the shiny gold accents quickly won me over. I had to also recreate this artsy look in my art journal/planner layout this week.
