My help comes from the Lord

Scripture Lesson #3 with Patter Cross
reminds me that even though I go thru trials and times of trouble-God is always with me.
 
We all have our times of trials. The question is what do we do during those times?
I know I call friends and family to discuss it, sometimes asking for prayer.
My first step should be to go to my God. He's the one that can get me thru it.
 
I've used a 11x14 piece of canvas paper. Used gelatos to create the sky, applied modeling paste thru a stencil to get the "rays".  Hand wrote some of the words that describe My God.  The flowers are al the good things he provides: peace, love, joy, comfort, strength...the list goes on and on.
 
 The scripture I used on my piece is
Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble. 

Below I was trying to show the rays of goodness, mercy & love that pour down from God.
The song lyrics "I lift my eyes up -my help comes from the Lord" really spoke to me.

I'm sharing this at Word Art Wednesday. My dear friend Karen is a great woman of God. She shares his word weekly.  I hope you'll also go to her blog and check it out.

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.
