09/ 2015 Through My Window - Durch mein Fenster

A new month and a new theme here at Art Journal Journey chosen by 
Hello and welcome. Corrine Gilman here... 

I am a self taught mixed media artist with a background in Communications Arts. My work revolves around the communication of abstract impressions. Raw hand stitch on vintage and found textiles imparts a textural image of place. Mixed media collage and painting maps out the landscape. By listening to the whispers in nature and the forces of the unseen and mystery, I try and translate these communications through my work. Nature provides the subtle balance of interaction between human and other sentient beings - animals, plants, wind, water and trees if we are willing to let our ego go and truly listen. Stitching and painting are my ways of "speaking" through those mediums. I rely solely on my intuitive sense as to where the work will go, letting it guide me rather than my guiding it. I am but a follower in nature's rhythms. I follows my muse recognizing that there are no mistakes only happy accidents in the blossoming of the creative spirit and I want to share this enthusiastically with you. Sparkle Days Studio is my dreamscape studio where I create my work. Copy for the into of the project: Through my window can be the view to the world, the view inside, a window to the soul, a window to insight on any vision of the phrase you create. My pages in the journal were created by printing photos out onto paper and creating the collage and colored pencil background. The word/poem is my own vision of these pages.

Unsere Gastdesignerin diesen Monat heißt Corinne von Sparkle Days Studio.

Sie ist eine autodidaktische Mixed Media Künstlerin mit einem Hintergrund im Bereich der kommunikativen Kunst. Sie arbeitet intuitiv im Einklang mit der Natur und im Glauben an die Interaktion zwischen menschlichen und anderen empfindenden Wesen (Tiere, Pflanzen, Bäume, Wasser und Wind ). Sie folgt dem natürlichen Rhythmus und ihrer Muse, im Vertrauen darauf, dass es in der Kunst keine Fehler gibt, sondern nur glückliche "Unfälle", die den kreativen Geist wachsen lassen. Mit ihren abstrakten Arbeiten, teilweise mit einfachster Handstickerei auf alten und gebrauchten Textilien, erzeugt sie zusammen mit Mixed Media Kollage und Malerei, Räumlichkeit und Textur. Auf die Natur besonnen, versucht sie die Zwiesprache mit dem Geheimnisvollem und Unsichtbaren in ihren Arbeiten zu übersetzen und auszudrücken. Ihre Begeisterung freut sie sich mit uns hier zu teilen . Die Seiten, die sie für uns zum Thema "DURCH MEIN FENSTER" gestaltet hat, zeigen eine Kollage mit auf Papier ausgedruckten Fotos auf einem Farbstift-Hintergrund. Der Text dazu ist ihre eigene Kreation zum Gezeigten.


das kann dein Blick auf die Welt sein oder der Blick nach Innen zu deiner Seele. Zeig uns Einblicke auf Deine Art des sich Ausdrückens!

    Those who claim they were saved by "faith alone" like to quote Hebrews 11:7 to prove they were by "faith only," just like Noah.

    Hebrews 11:7 By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of righteousness which is according to faith.(NKJV)

    Hebrews 11:7By faith Noah, being warned by God about things not yet seen, in reverence prepared an ark for the salvation of his household, by which he condemned the world, and became an heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.(NASB)

    Noah was not saved the minute he had faith, he was saved and became an heir of righteousness after faith plus preparing the ark.

    Noah was saved by faith plus obedience, not by faith alone.
    He was obedient by preparing the ark for saving his household. If Noah had tried being saved by "faith alone" he would have drown just like the rest of the world.

    1 Peter 3:20.....God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.(NKJV)

    Noah was not saved on dry land by "faith alone." He was saved by faith plus obedience.

    Without faith Noah and his household would not have been saved.

    Without Noah building the ark, Noah and his household would not have been saved.

    Faith plus obedience saved Noah and his household.

    Faith only advocates claim they are saved by "faith only." They reject being immersed in water in order to be saved.

    Jesus said faith plus obedience saves. Mark 16:16 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved....(NKJV)

    Noah was not saved until he built the ark and men today are not saved until they are immersed in water.

    Noah would have drown without the ark

    Men today will drown in their sins without being baptized into Christ for the forgiveness of their sins. Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38. Acts 22:16, 1 Peter 3:21, John 3:5, Romans 6:3-7, Ephesians 5:25-27, Colossians 2:12-13 and Galatians 3:27.
