Theme: It's all about love...His love
Dates: Feb. 9-13

 Jesus loves us the same as his Father loves him!  What a wonderful promise.  The greek word there for love is agape.  It means unconditional love. Doesn't matter what's in our past-when we ask for forgiveness-it's gone. God doesn't hold grudges.  Sometimes we cant "feel" his love. There may be some obstacle in our love walk keeping us from feeling his presence like we should. Examine yourself & ask him to show you wants holding you back. I want to experience God's love every day.

I used 8x10 canvas to paint vines growing-just like our love grows for God. He loved us so much he sent his son Jesus to die on a cross.  He gave his all for us. We only have to give our love back.  I printed out our word art verse and mod-podged it onto the canvas. I stamped a heart in distress ink. Coated the entire thing with more mod-podge.

Prize: Stampin' Up Set
Winner for Stampin' Up Set will be announced Feb. 14
Several of our team will be having a giveaway of their own.

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.
