Word Art Wednesday Challenge

Hello everyone!  Thanks for stopping by. We have a beautiful Word Art Scripture this week:

This is a PROMISE from our God to us.  He knew the trials and temptations we'd have to face. He's bigger than any problem we have to face. We can put our total trust in Him!

In studying the scripture my mind went to a lighthouse. Built strong on the rocks it withstands storm winds & waves. It has to be tough so it can help the boats find the shore. It's light shines thru the clouds showing the captains of the ships the direction they are to go.

I roughly sketched the image on my canvas & then painted it with acrylic paint.  I added the scripture using mod podge.  The canvas is 9x12.

I wanted to paint the lighthouse to show the strong rock formation that is the base of the lighthouse. Building our foundation on the promises of God is the main start of our Christian walk.  We can hold tight in the storms of life knowing they will come, but Christ has our back!

If you want more inspiration-please visit our team blog @ Word Art Wednesday.  I'd love to see your creations.  Please post them on our blog.

We do have a prize for the winner sponsore by:

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
Entering the following challenges:Mojo Monday challenge 464-last card is usi…

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!!!

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.
