Theme: It's all about love...His love
Dates: Feb. 9-13

 Jesus loves us the same as his Father loves him!  What a wonderful promise.  The greek word there for love is agape.  It means unconditional love. Doesn't matter what's in our past-when we ask for forgiveness-it's gone. God doesn't hold grudges.  Sometimes we cant "feel" his love. There may be some obstacle in our love walk keeping us from feeling his presence like we should. Examine yourself & ask him to show you wants holding you back. I want to experience God's love every day.

I used 8x10 canvas to paint vines growing-just like our love grows for God. He loved us so much he sent his son Jesus to die on a cross.  He gave his all for us. We only have to give our love back.  I printed out our word art verse and mod-podged it onto the canvas. I stamped a heart in distress ink. Coated the entire thing with more mod-podge.

Prize: Stampin' Up Set
Winner for Stampin' Up Set will be announced Feb. 14

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

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

Recycling and creating something new has always been one of my favorite things to do.   The square "shadow box" I've been saving for quite some time and now have forgotten what came in it.  It's part of packaging. 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…
