Sketchworthy Reads- Marian Jordan Ellis

I don't remember when I first hear about Marian Jordan Ellis but I know that when I first read a book of hers I was hooked. Marian Jordan Ellis is an author, speaker, Bible teacher, and the founder of Redeemed Girl Ministries.

The first book of hers I read was The List. It is a book about how we all have a list in our heads of what our life should be and how holding tightly to that list leads to disappointment. Throughout the book she challenges us to turn our list over to God and embrace His direction for our life. She talks dynamically about her experiences and pulls from Scripture to clearly explain her points. It's one of the most challenging books I have and I knew I had to read more. 

Besides how convictingly Marian writes and speaks I love seeing how her story has played our and the journey her faith has taken her on.  It's very encouraging!

Take a few minutes to look at her website, vist her blog and this recent post one of her best in my opion, read one of her books, or listen to a podcast. You won't be disappointed!
I'm also excited to have found out that Maria has a new book coming out August 1st, just a few days away, called Stand !

Three ways to Wear a Sarong

  The best beach cover up is also versatile and easy to travel with. A sarong is a large piece of fabric often wrapped around the waist . When there's so many colors and patterns available why not get as creative as possible!

Around your waist

One Bouquet- three ways

This time instead of using three different mediums, I decided to try three different styles. Abstract, doodled, and layered. 

I really like all of them, they are so different to make. Abstract really flows and doodling is much tighter and can be tedious but they all are really fun.

Artists Who Inspire- Paperfashion

Sprinkle On Glitter Blog// Artists Who Inspire- Paperfashion

Katie Rodgers of Paperfashion has the most enchanted  style out there. Her illustrations are like being caught up in a daydream. 

She fell in love with and learned watercolor from her grandmother and started her blog in 2009 as a creative outlet after day job. Her art quickly gained attention and followers allowing her to quit her job and  pursue being a full time artist. 

I look at what she creates and am in awe of how she comes up with it. I love the free, looseness in Katie's art as well as all the glitter, sequins, and embellishments. 

She offers three great classes on Skillshare, sells prints on her website, and posts on Instagram
