Fridays With Kelly - Take 2

Fridays With Kelly - I am really loving this day and I look forward to it throughout the week. A day where I can share with my friends my inspirations throughout the week. My goal is to inspire others into their creativity!
I have been thinking a lot about my niece Destiny and that is what the first page is about. She is a sweet little 9 year old and I am having so much fun communicating back and forth through mail and on facebook. We live one Province away from each other. I am going to have her for one week this summer and I look so forward to have some girlie time.
The next pictures are of some journal time I was able to get in at work while it was slow. I have been prepping pages in the morning and taking them to work to work on.
I prepared a page on my all time favorite verses in the bible PSALM 139. It creates such a clear picture of how God knows us and loves us completely. In the flower I wrote, "God knows that I love to wear flowers in my hair!" because it is a fact about me that God knows. I have so many hair bands with flowers attached to them and that is just me. God instilled the love of flowers in me. He is such a beautiful Creator.
The "Friends" page I had a lot of fun doing, especially the lettering because I had to layer and layer it to make it pop out more. My hubby noticed that my drawings of the girls looked a little different than I usually do... and they do, I was looking through some sites and alot of drawings show girls with long necks and so I gave it a try.
The mail art "God Bless You" I wanted to do some mail art that was feminine and pretty and with a godly message too! I have tried to master drawing women's face and I enjoy doing it.. I don't really know why. I think God's creation is so beautiful and the female face is well... feminine in it's lines and contours of the eyes. It is peaceful to draw. That and I don't know how to draw a male face - lol.
So... this is my inspiration for this Friday... look around you and see if you can capture the feminine around you. Look at the differences between the male and female gender and put it on a page...
When you have done this, send me a link to your post and I would love to see what you come up with.
Hugs to you all.
Happy Creating.
Have a very inspirational day!

Beautiful work this week Kelly! You're going to have a ball with your niece. Girls are so much fun! But don't necessarily expect pink bows and ribbons... at 9 my daughter has just about given up the girly stuff! Have a great weekend!
