Instructions for My Version of Scribble Art


Step 1 – Get your supplies ready. Heavy weight paper, like watercolor paper or mixed media paper, pencil, acrylic paint (so it will cover what you wrote), paint brush, water, paper towel or rag, optional: black marker, white gel pen.


Step 2 – In the middle of the page somewhere write down any negative thoughts or feelings you want. (This image is for demonstration purposes only. It is not written to you, I promise!)


Step 3 – Then pray, ask God to forgive you and to give you the strength to forgive the one(s) that have hurt you. And to fill your heart/mind with His peace.

Step 4 – Make big loopy scribbles all over the page. Not too many or else it will take a lot of time to fill in each cell. And not too few or it will be hard to make an image from it.


Step 5 – Find an image from your lines, or make one up by adding a few lines; such as a cat, a palm tree, a shoe, etc., if you can. (This is supposed to be a pumpkin!)


Step 6 – Paint each cell a different color. For example, let’s say you see a cat. So for each cell of the cat’s face you paint a shade of pink, and its body shades of dark pink. Then paint the background a contrasting color.


Step 7 -Decide if you want to paint, or draw the lines, then add details, such as eyes, whiskers or doodles, with marker or gel pen.


** The philosophy behind writing down negative words: It gives you a chance to express those thoughts without hurting anyone else. Praying about it gives you a chance to be freed from it. Painting over it is a reminder to you that God has covered your sins and is making you beautiful again.  theend

About nball252

Hi, my name is Naomi, I am a Christian, certified aromatherapist. I also have an Associate Degree in Bible. I looked for books about aromatherapy from a Christian point of view and didn't find any, so I wrote one, The Aromatherapy Advocate. An introductory book for Christians on aromatherapy. I have one son whom I home schooled. I started using essential oils 10 years ago. I love the fragrances and I love the powerful benefits of using essential oils. I received my certificate about 10 years ago and have been teaching and writing about aromatherapy from a Christian perspective since then.
