Coloring Pre-Drawn Stuff ... "Inspire Psalms"

I have taken some time off of drawing lately and have just been coloring in a few books that have been given to me as gifts and others that I bought myself.  Coloring is hard for me, I have so much trouble choosing color combinations that I am happy with.  Yes, I know I can find "Color Combos" on Pinterest but then where do I use what color ? ? ?  It all makes my head hurt.  So I have decided to practice for a while.

This morning I 'googled' the "Inspire Psalms" to see how other people have colored pages from the book and discovered, there are no examples, so here ya go...some that I have finished.  Maybe if I start posting the finished ones I will finish more.

Just a note: When I first got the book I made the decision to be consistent throughout the book and make any reference of the Lord yellow/orange so I did that first, I went through the whole book coloring those first...so now I am stuck with that decision and yellow is a required element of my color combinations ...  hummmm :-/

James 3:4-18




I debated with myself about even showing this page because of the Hillary reference, but you know what, it was the most perfect example of 


James 3:14-15 English Standard Version (ESV)

14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. 15 This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.
Sure, there are PLENTY other people that would qualify, but the fact that she still whines that the election was stolen from her...2.5 years later speaks volumes and fits the verses perfectly. 


My old drawings of this verse don't come close to a picture that would bring immediate understanding to the picture.

James 1: 13-26 Be Doers of the Word!

I knew I was in trouble when I had only sketched out 5 of the 16 verses that needed to go on the page.  Whoops!  (I still had everything below the yellow mark to draw!)



But, since the last time I faced James my thinking had changed.  In 2013 I was thinking of "good and perfect gifts from above" as THINGS... this time I was thinking of the talents the Lord give, and the other spiritual gifts that aren't "things" at all.  Sure, He gives us those too, but the other "non-things" are far more valuable and needed to be shown as such.  As you can see from the above picture I had drawn out the talent type gifts, but then I woke up a couple of days later thinking I needed to show them coming down from "the Father of Heavenly lights"  I wanted it to be a whole dark galaxy thing with God's hand and gifts but there just wasn't enough room to show that...so I improvised ...



This is why I love doing this...every time I try it, I meditate on each individual scripture and the Lord shows me something different...It would be easy to just draw what I did last time, but sometimes there is a better solution.

Seven Things God Hates...

In Proverbs 6:16-19 the writer lists seven things God hates:



The reason I wanted to highlight this scripture is that THREE of the seven have to do with lying! Just thinking that with all the fake news and accusations happening in our nation right now, there is going to be a price to pay! PRAY FOR THE ELECTION!

LOVE THIS PEN/PENCIL!

I got a new pen...and I am loving it!  It is the



The best part is that it has a pencil and eraser along with the four colors of pens!  SO COOL!  I have gotten two in less than a month and have another in my Amazon basket to send to a friend.  It will be great for Bible note taking as well as drawing in my Bible.



One of the complaints on the Amazon comments was that the ink runs out too quickly so I tried to run out on the following picture... nope, it is still writing!  This is an 8.25" x 10.25" spread so there is a lot of ink used up. 

LOVE THIS PEN!

The COOLEST software EVER!

Oh man!  It has been so long since I posted anything I am having to remember how!

I just got a new software package that is so amazing that I just have to share with you....and OF COURSE I'm going to use my "For You" picture to demonstrate what it does.



I was able to create this video in less than 45 minutes after I paid for it!  I posted the video on facebook for my friends to see it and the first two people that said they loved it I made a video just for them.

One raises and sells Natural/Organic Beef and the other sells real estate.  I created both of the following within an hour!  SO COOL!  SO EASY!  I was able to use "canned" pictures to create these, I just had to put them where I wanted them and add words...






My "end goal" is to do more of the "For Me" type videos so I might be back here doing more of those.  I have to do more work for that type of video because the package comes with ZERO pre drawn characters and scenes for Bible type presentations.  No problem, I can draw those.

If you want to check the BRILLIANT software out go HERE

For You!

Four years ago I did this quick drawing to color...I made it available for free  HERE to anyone that wanted it for Sunday School classes, or whatever. 







Weeeeellll, on a whim I sent the picture to the company that is making my charms to see if they could make one of this. Check out the results!!!  I am SO EXCITED!  Now that I know what can be done I will be doing others soon...she already has two "on the drawing board"  :-) 





Buy it here for only $15 +$2 shipping





".... then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” 
(Acts 4:10, 12)

Today's New Challenge

Today my cousin asked me to create a key-chain for her 8 year old grandson using the "Chosen" charm...oh, and he loves LSU.  Hummmm.... I can not tell a lie, gifts, ANY gifts for men, much less little boys have always been a problem.  I don't "do" male gifts!  But, here I was faced with a challenge.

First I took the ninny way out and showed her this:  (UGH! - zero imagination!)

Ho-hum.

Brenda said she wanted me to use some leather on it... back to the drawing board.  After 4 failed attempts I finally came up with one that I was happy with to show her.  HIT!  I might have to make one for myself, I like it that much... though I don't care a thing about LSU so the hanging charm will have to be different.




Charm stitched to Leather



If you order this keychain we can "talk" about what you want to hang at the bottom.

Moving In A New Direction .... again.

YIKES!!!  It has been over a year since I posted here!  Life has taken a huge turn so I really haven't had anything to share, but, I just realized that a Facebook Page that I now have (today) is sending folks here!  Gotta say, Facebook still confuses me.

ANYWAY, the change ... I am doing more Jewelry making and far less doodling theses days.  Well, actually, I have taken my doodles into my jewelry design!  How cool is that?!

I have found a company that will manufacture charms for me so that's my new THANG.   I write the words, using my own handwriting and they make it happen! .. Oh, and then I make the final bracelet/necklace/keychain/whatever ...

If you see anything that you want below, please email me at NotJustNEB@gmail.com and let's "talk".

AND, please come and "Like" my Facebook Page to stay current with the latest.  I have a charm being made right now that I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT!!!  But, that will follow in another post :-)


Examples of what I have so far:



- "Thy Will Be Done" - a reminder to whisper that prayer when faced with choices and decisions (Matthew 6:10 - from the prayer that Jesus, himself, told us that we should pray)
- "WHATEVER He Says -Do It" - because your future depends on it! ....so very many examples in the Bible of what happens when you do, or don't, do what he says, but Mary is the one that said it here...(John 2 ...Mary tells servants to do whatever Jesus told them because she had faith that he would fix the wine )
- "Chosen" (by God) - reminder that you are so important to God that HE CHOSE YOU! ( Ephesians 1:11 - "In him we were chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will")
- "Handmade" (by God) - reminder that you were no accident - GOD made you, on purpose, and HE had a plan for your life before you were even born! (Jeremiah 1:5 - "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart...")
- "Loved" (by God) - reminder that no matter how unloved you feel, GOD loves you! (John 16:27 - Jesus said..."the Father himself loves you because you have loved me and believed that I came from God")
Bracelets or necklaces, antique silver or antique bronze, with or without dangle rhinestone, or "by God" heart. Just $10 each plus $2 S/H (unless you want to pick it up here). This is my opening Facebook price, the price will be more on Etsy.
