His Eye is on the Sparrow

I saw this method for using the Tim Holtz Distress Markers on the video on youtube http://youtu.be/jmYdEsHdnjs.  I wanted to give it a try.  I started out stamping the two birds and coloring them in using the method they described.  It looked easy enough.  I think it came out pretty good for my first try.  I definitely need practice with blending.  I then did some searches for poems about birds and found this beautiful poem and knew that is what had to go on my page.  I typed it up, printed it from my computer, distressed it, glued it down  and added some doodling.  I love the message.  A simple reminder that "He" is taking care of us.  What a nice reflection to end my evening.


  1. Very nice. I love the colors. Are those all stamps or did you draw any of those flourishes? I really like the poem too. I am guessing the robin is on another branch on another journal page, lol.

  2. The flourishes are all stamps. I bought them recently and I love them. They are the clear stamps. I wish I had found the poem first but even if I did, I don't have a stamp of a robin. So, yes, the robin must be on another page. That sounds good.
