Getting Camp heARTful Session II ready for tomorrow, but in the mean time, I wanted to post some pretty fun pictures of the girls and their beautiful projects. Yes can you believe it I had all girls in the first session, which made it quite special.

                                            "I like this art class better than other art classes I have taken"  

             "I want to do the next session too!"  

                               "Mrs. Wombacher you are so much fun!"

A Travelling Art Kit

My bag has wonderful bamboo handles and an oval bottom

one of my felted pencil pouches
 During the summer months, one thing I have come to cherish, is my Art Bag-an art on the go kit. I bring it with me everywhere especially during the summer months where so much of life is lived out doors, in the woods, on a boat, vacoationing in the sand. I made my bag by repurposing, a thrift store find. I found a beautiful turquoise wool sweater, that I created into a type of carpet bag style bag. I felted it and embellished the front with antique pillowcase lace, buttons, velvet ribbon and flowers I made with the leftover scraps from the sweater. In it I often have too many things, but all of them are things in process and artwork that I love doing. What better way to spend your time than doing something you love while you wait or have a gap of unsolicited time. This to me is time well spent! It helps me relax, changes my mood, and can draw me into the solace and peace of my Creator.  If you know anything about me, you know I am all about art and faith.
I love my Art Bag, it helps me keep art in the front of my life, because I can always have it with me. I don't know about you but I can always use more beauty and peace in my life and there is no better way to get it than through the creative process.

Details of the front of my bag.

Here is what is in my Art Bag:
  • folder of loose ephemera for collaging
  • journal and sketch book
  • zipper pouch with tools-scissors, glue sticks, washi tape
  • zipper pouch with all my sketching supplies- pencils, stabilo pen, gum eraser, sharpener,charcoal pencils and blender.
  • small spray mister 
  • my watercolor palette,paint brush and water brush pens
  • A collage project- could be an altered book I am working on.
  • stitching box dmc floss, thimble, tape measure, needle case beads, fabric scraps, buttons, small hoop and stitching project. 
  • I also bring a zipper pouch with essentials- hand lotion, lip gloss, tea bags, tylenol etc.  
Below I have linked to some other artists I admire and their ideas on this the subject of traveling and on the go art kits.

Last Day of Camp HeARTfull


WOW! What a week it has been! I hope you can see the joy of learning and creating on these camper's faces. I have had such a blast with these wonderful kiddos!

On our last day together, we looked at the idea of being changed into a new creature! In our heartful bible time we looked at scriptures that talk of this very thing.  For example:

2 Cor. 5:17 tells us:Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 

On the board is ways in which to live out that transformation found in Romans 12:9-16

For our creative project we created specimen box butterflies. The campers had a great time creating their own beautiful butterflies as a representation of themselves and what happens when you give your life to Christ, you become a new creation alive this the Spirit of God living in you! Pretty awesome.  

We also shared our week with our parents with a mini art show. The perfect ending to Camp HeARTful. If you are interested in Camp HeARTful 2 contact me via this blog.
