Word Art Challenge 2/15

Our wonderful sponsor this week is Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  

Our featured scripture:

Psalms 119:105
Your Word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.

I've meditated on this scripture all week. Trying to visualize what it means to me. How to translate it in our modern world.  Obviously the "WORD" is the bible.  God's instructions written for all of us to read, learn, memorize and live our life.  

The sphere in the background represents the world as well as how God's Word travels.  When we've done our job of meditating & learning the Word-we can share it with others.
The city cut out (cricut cartridge) represents our path-the town where I live.  It's little windows in the buildings are God's children.  We are scattered throughout our town.  We each can encourage each other and be a light in the darkness.
The lamp resembles the kind Jesus might have used.  The lily image is from Fred She Said and reminds me of Jesus.  Jesus is always with us.  Inside & out.  May we always remember-he didn't leave us alone-he left us with his Holy Spirit.

Thanks for stopping by this week. May God bless you!

Stacked Pumpkins Class

Fall is in the air!  The painters were excited to paint this great 16x20 Social Art-networking Design!  The did a fabulous job!  They learned how to use their paintbrushes to create thin lines as well as thick ones.  Dry-brushing technique.  The #2 round brush is perfect for the vines surrounding the bottom of the pumpkins.

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

Happy Birthday with Paper Artsy stamps/masking

I was inspired by the current challenge at Paper Artsy-masking.  I've created this card using a different kind of masking. I brayed paint onto my gelli plate and this pushed the Paper Artsy flower stamps into the paint. Then I pulled the print. Wow!! The stamp pulled the paint off creating a negative space. I hightlighted the stamps with watercolor pencils. Did some additional stamping with Paper Artsy vine, then stamped The Happy Birthday sentiment from Stampin Up.  Added 3 die cut flowers on top with dimensional s to finish the card. I LOVE how it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!!!

DecoArt Stencils-Wall Art

I wanted to create  a nice design on my bathroom wall. I used DecoArt Traditions acrylic paint. Several stencils were used: First I taped off 7x7 squares leaving an inch between them. I painted them White Wash White. It took a couple of coats to cover up the lavender on the wall.  The I started layering using Botanical stencil and Antique Green. I used all 3 designs and just moved the stencil around on each square.  To get a different shade, I added some of the White Wash White to do the 2nd leaf. The third one I used yellow. The flower is from the Garden collection and is Reusable -stick on stencil. I did some of the flowers in Black Plum and some in Yellow. The bird is from the Bee's and Birds stencil. I did two coats of Black Plumb. I ended up sealing it with a coat of Satin Varnish.

 I hope you'll be inspired to paint on your walls!!
