Organization {Friday} Tube Paints

Agh, tube paints. I love them as well as all of the other paints I have; however, they were not organized quite like I like them. So I searched for another Simply Renee Mini Clip-it Up. I had one and used it for my stencil organization which has worked amazing for me. If you missed that post, click here. So, I thought this same concept would work great for my tube paints.

I found someone that had a Mini Clip-it Up that they were not using so I purchased it from them. It arrived and that afternoon, my tube paints looked like this:





They are clipped up in color order, and this sits right on the edge of my art table. It is very easy to see the paints I want to use and makes it easy to put them away. If you are unable to find the discontinued Simply Renee Mini Clip-it Up, you can certainly make your own. There are lots of ideas on Pinterest. Also, feel free to look at my other paint organization post by looking at these posts:

Please note that the Mainstays organizer noted in the 2nd link is where I now have my Tim Holtz Distress Paints standing. Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy your weekend!

Tuesday's {Tip} Words for Faith Art

Are you ever at a loss for finding the perfect word sticker or stamp for your faith journaling? Maybe you create faith art in an art journal or you create Journaling {Bible} pages or Scripture Art Cards, ICADs, etc. Whatever you are creating, where can you find words? Well, of course there are stamp sets or sticker sets, you can use a vintage typewriter as I do sometimes or even your printer. Well, I have another solution for you. I have had this book for years, and it has served me well. It is called the Layman's Bible Encyclopedia (1964). 

I got mine free from paperbackswap.com; however, they are available on amazon.com for about $6.50 and up (which includes shipping). To me, that is worth $7 for the amount of words and pages you get. The book contains 1,012 pages and scriptures so there is a lot in there to work with. You can see that I used words from this book in this Journaling {Bible} entry. The words 'forgiving', 'spirit', and 'forgiveness' were taken from this book.

For the tiny leftover words, I just recycled a small Altoid tin for those. If it gets to be too full, I will purge some of the words.

I hope you find this helpful. This book would even work for someone that does not want to journal in their Bible. This could certainly be used as an alternative. Have a blessed Tuesday!
