Word Art Wednesday Challenge

Hello everyone! Time for another wonderful scripture challenge.

This week our scripture is:


As Christians, part of our job is to share Christ's love with other.  So many people think they can't witness to others.  It doesn't have to be a big paragraph being said that tells others about Christ-it's the every day life we live. Every where we go, what we say, how we react to situations-that's "letting our light shine" so that God will be glorified.

Have you done something nice for someone lately?  I made a big pot of mashed potatoes, cabbage & bought some KFC. Made 3 meals & delivered them yesterday while I was off.  Couple of senior saints and my aunt who recently had knee surgery.  They all were super glad to see me (they didn't turn the food down).  That's one way to "let your light shine".

My card using our scripture:
The background for my scripture was cut with spellbinder die.  The background paper is K & Co.
I used dimensional s on the back of the scripture.
 I stamped the lighthouse image on vellum with versa mark & then embossed it in black. I colored the back of the vellum with markers in a few places.  The white background paper I painted sand & sky.  When I put them together-my total image worked well.

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!!
