WAW#40 Psalms 33:1

When the Lord tells you to Rejoice-you need to REJOICE!  We have so much to be thankful for.  If we truly started writing down everything-we would be "mind boggled"!  Just being able to share God's love with others on our blogs is a blessing.  In other countries they can't mention God.  Our freedom of religion is truly something we shouldn't take for granted. 

If you like to use scripture or encouraging sentiments-our challenge is for YOU!  Word Art Wednesday is where you'll find our FREE WORD ART that my design team & I have used this week.

Our sponsor this week is Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  It's always nice to win something.
 This week I did a technique I saw online. Using distress ink in 3 colors I sponged them on my white card stock.  Then I spritzed Stampin up smooch on top & while it was still wet, used a background stamp with circles (My Mind's Eye-Everyday Fun)several times to give the smooch more dimension.
The flowers started out white as well.  Distressed & layered two of them. On the top one I stamp the center using a new stamp set from Market Street Stamps "Life is Beautiful"

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…
