Word Art Wednesday Challenge #7

Word Art Wednesday challenge is always focused on scripture.  With Christmas coming up this scripture is so perfect.  Glory to God is what we need to be focusing on in our preparation of this wonderful holiday. We're celebrating our Lord's birth!  God shared His most precious son with us. How he loves us!

It took me several days-drying time to create mine on canvas.  I used mod podge and layered ripped pieces of wall paper for the background.  Around the bottom right edge I added some ripped pages of a french dictionary.
Distressed my scripture cutout and added it next.  Cut out LOVE and the large heart with my cricut. Started stamping around the edges using Tim Holtz Vintage photo & berry distress ink.  Lastly I added 3 vintage buttons.

I love the finished project.  I have a frame ready for it. After Christmas-it's going up on my wall @ work for inspiration.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
