The Christmas season is here! All this week I will be featuring my books along with other gift ideas that would pair well with them, in case you want to give a gift basket, gift bag, etc.
Today I am featuring my book, Surrounded by God’s Blue Sky: Christian Affirmations for Chronic Pain. This is full of encouragement in the form of art and Christian affirmations. 50 positive self-talk statements that you can recite and take to heart are included along with journal prompts to help explore your relationship with pain. 50 watercolor nature sketches I created are also included.
I have also created the Surrounded by God’s Blue Sky Companion Journal to go along with the book. This has 120 lined pages with images from the original book lightly displayed in the background of each page. It’s perfect for writing down your journal prompt responses.
You can also use a sketchbook for your journal responses and create watercolor nature sketches. The book has a brief lesson on how to create a watercolor nature sketch. I love using this Canson XL Mixed Media Sketchbook. The paper can handle some water and any crinkling that happens quickly flattens out once the book is closed for a while.
A simple watercolor set is perfect for the beginner as well. This Nicpro Watercolor Paint Set is fun and has a lot of different colors. You can create so many different nature scenes by playing around and mixing the colors.
If you would like to add black lines to the nature sketches, I recommend the Faber Castell Pitt Pens. These are waterproof so you can outline your sketch and still add watercolors on top of it.
There you have it! These five gifts would make any recipient so pleased to have them! The journal, sketchbook, watercolor paint set, and waterproof pens pair perfectly with Surrounded by God’s Blue Sky.
Keep an eye out for my next post tomorrow where I will be featuring another book and a few more gift ideas!
