MAKE SURE TO BOOKMARK THIS URL ADDRESS AND SAVE YOUR LINK AND PASSWORD- this is how you will be able to get into the class – You will have access to the class as long as I have it available and you have the link and password. The class content will be available indefinitely.


There are several lessons for each class. They do not all appear on one page. Please go to the “Lessons” in the right side-bar column to click on the lesson title to access the desired lesson. Enjoy taking the lessons at your own pace.


Each of the videos have a password for viewing right below the video box- look just look below the box and you will see the password you need to type in. This is the only password that will work to allow you to view the video. It is not the same as the class entry password.


All the videos are uploaded through Vimeo and are working, so if you are experiencing a problem, freezing up, not playing, text saying invalid password- there is likely an issue on your end. Please make sure to check your internet connection to make sure it is working. If it is slow, it will take awhile for the videos to load- you will be able to see a grey bar moving across the video as it loads.

Also make sure to check your internet settings– this can be the problem when you cannot view a video. Different versions and updates can affect your video viewing. If your settings were changed or if you are using a different browser this could also be the problem. I typically used Safari and didn’t have any trouble until one day the audio didn’t work in the Vimeo videos. After some research, I learned that it also happened for some people using Firefox. When I cleared the cache and removed the cookies, it worked after that. To learn how to do that, I googled “how to clear cache in Safari” etc. and followed the instructions. I also downloaded Chrome, and now use it instead of Safari.

If you are still having trouble viewing the videos, sometimes there may be an issue with the Flash player, and you may need to switch between the HTML player and the Flash player for the video.
To do that:
If you’re using Chrome or Safari, you’ll see a link directly below the video on a clip page that will allow you to switch between players
If you’re currently using the Flash player, you’ll see a link that says ‘Switch to HTML5 player.’
If you’re currently using the HTML5 player, you’ll see a link that says ‘Switch to Flash player.’
By clicking the link, you’ll automatically start using that player
If you continue to have trouble viewing a video, contact Vimeo directly using their Contact form at:

The class is for personal use only, not for commercial use, and not meant to be distributed or reproduced outside of the class including how to classes, magazine articles, pinning to Pinterest, posting step-by-step process on your blog, etc. I share my process in detail and have worked years to develop how-to steps that achieve my own style. If you have any questions, feel free to email me.

My hope is that you will be inspired and the how-to instructions will help you develop your own personal style, to make art like beautiful you, not another me. Branch out, have fun, try new things with your art. We each have our own voice and they all need to be heard, or seen in this case.

The music you hear in the background in some of the demos is written and played by Bobby Puckett©, a promising, young musician.

Bible Journaling with Stencils & More content is available beginning 11/11/2017. The course is self-paced. You can access the videos anytime and watch them as many times as you want. There are videos in each lesson with some digital downloads available. The stencils used in the lessons are available for purchase as a set when you register, or available through StencilGirl® Products website.

You will have access to the class for the lifetime of my website hosting the course. I do not plan to close my website or stop offering classes and information on life, faith and art. You will have access to bonuses and future inspiration I share using the stencils in this class.

You do not need to purchase all the supplies at the beginning of the course. I suggest start with dry media: a set of black art pens with varying tip sizes such as Sakura Micron Pens or a Faber-Castell Pitt Fineliner set, Gelatos® with a few bristle or stencil brushes, and colored pencils, along with a pencil and eraser.  I would add to that, clear gesso such as Art Basics brand. The wet media used for some of the lessons are fluid acrylics. You can visit my to learn about supplies. A more extensive and focused explanation of the materials and their use is given after you register for the class.

There are 15 lessons with over 10 hours of step-by-step video instruction. You can take the lessons at your own pace.

Because the entire course content is available to you beginning 11/11/2017, there will be no refunds. I am confident you will enjoy the course and grow in applying the art techniques shared. Stencil purchases are final with no refunds. However, if you are unsatisfied with your purchase, you may contact me at

This course is designed with varying skill levels in mind. The lessons range from easy, dry media with pen and Gelatos® working up to mixed media involving pen, Gelatos, paint and collage. All lessons follow step-by-step demonstrated process shown on video. We will be using the set of stencils as a base for creating Bible margins, so it is not necessary to know how to draw.

Everyone is welcome to take the course. You must have access to a computer or mobile device with Internet speed to watch videos such as YouTube or Vimeo.

The purchase of the class is for single use license, and is to be used only by the participant who registers. Sharing login details, watching lessons with others who have not registered and/or copying any material for others, is not allowed, and violates copyright law.
