Word Art Wednesday Challenge #14

Word Art Wednesday challenge is featuring the scripture:

Job 19:25     I know my Redeemer lives.

I haven't always truly understood this verse. Until 2005 I hadn't really had my faith tested.  When you hear the words "you have a very aggressive type of cancer" you start thinking about life & death.

Do I really believe God is with me? 
Psalm 23 4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 

I spent 11 months in the hospital from Tuesday to Friday almost every week for chemo treatments. In the middle I had surgery where they removed my right bottom jaw & replaced it with a bone from my leg. 
God was with me every day! He carried me right thru.  I found out for sure-MY REDEEMER LIVES!

He loves me so much that he never left me. He blessed me with excellent doctors, nurses, CNA's.  He proved HE LIVES in the many people that crossed by path. He sent me strangers to be my friends who encouraged me. He made my family stronger. When I'd come home, I was met by cards, calls, food, prayer from my many friends and family. I have never felt so loved in my life!

God loves you just as much!  That's the great news.  You can ask him to live in your heart & forgive you of your sins and you'll never be alone again.   

If you have questions or have a prayer request-leave a reply or send me an email. My God hears and answers every prayer. I'd be honored to pray with you.

In thinking about how could I represent a Redeemer who's alive? I chose butterflies in color. You'll notice I didn't color in all of them. Sometimes we don't "see" God in our lives-but he's there.  
 I started with plan white card stock. I stamped my butterflies using Tim Holtz Distress ink. I fussy cut the purple one & used a dimensional to make it pop.

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!

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…
