WAW: God loves America

God doesn't expect alot from us. But he does expect our love.  I think the creator of the universe, the one & only God of all the earth, the beginning and the end, deserves our respect & love.
The bible explains the multitude of benefits we receive just by putting him first.


Our Word Art this week says it all:


While celebrating our Nation's freedom and remembering the many people that have given their life for our country-let's also remember our God. Without Him we'd have nothing & be nothing. May he continue to watch over our country and leaders & bless them with his wisdom & grace. 


I really enjoyed making this piece to be framed in my living room.  I want to also be reminded I'm to give my ALL to God. 




Our wonderful & gracious sponsor this week is:

Isabella Sketchbook

Until next week: I pray God richly blesses you & yours.  Be safe.

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.

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!
