June Sketch-Along: Spreading Joy

It's time for another sketch-along! Summer is fast approaching, and for me summer always brings with it an anticipation of joy reminiscent of childhood. So, the theme this month? Spreading Joy! 

I was going to have a quick primer for those of you who are new to lettering, but the girl suddenly spiked a fever, so best laid plans and all. Here are a few quotes and verses on joy to get the creative juices flowing for the month. I'll be back another day to check in with a short "how-to-get-started." Let those pencils/pens/paints fly!

Joy is a gift from God. It fills us from within. 
Pope Francis

The one who loves Christ is full of joy. 
Pope Francis

Taking joy in living is a woman's best cosmetic.
Rosalind Russell

Man cannot live without joy.
St. Thomas Aquinas

Be good, keep your feet dry, your eyes open, your heart at peace and your soul in the joy of Christ.
Thomas Merton

Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.
Philippians 4:4

This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him.
Romans 15:13

Sorrow may last for the night, but joy comes with the morning. 
Psalm 30:5

Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.
Mother Teresa

Feel free to venture out on your own if you have other favorite sentiments of joy. I do hope you will sketch-along with me!

  2. I did a few... ok... two very (very, very) basic sketches this month :), do you have a link up or how does it work? (They're at the end of my most recent post linked in the the comment)
