Journaling with a flair of color. Come join us as we discover a new way of journaling.

Perhaps your emotions are running rampant or your feeling drab. No matter your mood, come relax and have fun with us as we combine the art of essence and ambiance in Journaling.


An art journal is a journal in which you combine art and words to express yourself. It’s not complex, and there really aren’t any rules for art journaling. It’s all about self-expression.

Artists (and that means you) all have different reasons for keeping journals. The reasons are very personal and individual, and could include:

  1. To experiment with art techniques & ideas.
  2. To get your thoughts & feelings out on paper in a creative way.
  3. To document your life, your being.
  4. To enjoy the process of creating.

“Journaling with Essence and Ambiance” is the perfect marriage of the 5 senses, art and soul. You will begin to create an art journal that records your immediate thoughts, feelings, and images. Creating a journal like this is a way to let go, forget all the rules of art, forget time, and pray.

Every color sparks the imagination with new creativity. God’s word speaks of color throughout scripture: God gave Noah a rainbow with seven specific colors: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. Throughout scripture He speaks of color; gold, silver, blues, purples, spotted and speckled, and varied colors.

This months theme is Purple. Purple is the last color of the rainbow.

Purple is considered the highest element of spirituality.

Purple is associated with Archangel Zadkiel, the Angel of Mercy. He is one of two standard bearers (along with Jophiel) who follow directly behind  Michael as the head archangel enters battle.

The color purple has a variety of effects on the mind and body. It calms the mind and nerves, uplifts our spirits, creates feelings of spirituality, enhancing the sacred, increasing nurturing tendencies and sensitivity.

We will delve deeper into the color purple and let it ignite our passions and inspiration as God unleashes our imagination with His beauty through words.

Each month we’ll introduce a different color into our journaling innovations. You’ll be amazed at what God brings to light. Join us. Bring a friend. Supplies and lunch provided.

We’d be honored to offer Journaling with Essence and Ambiance to your group. For more information, contact us at
