Greenbelly Studios Welcome

About Greenbelly Studios

Greenbelly Studios began in 2008 by Artist Tricia Jacobs out of a desire to create Christian Animation for children. We are a small, family owned, home-based art studio with virtual offices in upstate New York and Phoenix Arizona. Everything we do, we do for the glory of God.

What’s in a name?

The name “Greenbelly” came from a line of dog jackets we had originally designed and began sewing around 2006 out of recycled clothing. That was the catalyst which inspired us to make all kinds of fiber art and creations from recyled, repurposed, and reused materials including; garden sculptures, hand puppets, quilts, costumes, and 6”x6” wall art. Currently, we have been publishing books, journals, and videos about journaling and repurposing old books.

Create your own easy “18” page in your journal or sketchbook by watching our new tutorial on YouTube:

These pages in our journal titled “The Foundation” features a watercolor wash background. Learn how to create this beautiful affect in your own journal on our YouTube channel:

This page is from our journal titled “The Foundation.” We have applied watercolor paint, and gesso to get the affect we desired on this page. Also used: Sharpie pens.

We currently have five journals available to purchase on Amazon. We have more planned for 2018.

Pictured are four out of our five journals available for purchase: The Foundation, Reflection, Beginnings, Glances, and Sojourn. Each page features a black and white or gray-scale image created by Artist Tricia Jacobs. These journals are ideal for coloring, Bible study, prayer lists, drawing, and coloring.

Our tutorial on applying gesso to your artwork will teach you how to cover up unwanted images on your pages, or cover bleed-through from painting. [coming soon]
