Mixed media for WAW

Our scripture this week is from Colossians 3:15.  Who doesn't need peace in their life?  Life is so busy. There is so many people hurting.  When does it stop?  When we allow God's peace to take over our heart.  Then we can face difficult situations & our daily life knowing someone bigger than us is in total control!  AWESOME huh?
 Here are a couple of closeups of the flower cluster-Wild Orchid Flowers  and my new die from Tim Holtz. I diecut some chipboard. Used crackle paint. Still learning on that. Hard for me to wait for it to dry!

 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…
