Word Art Challenge 2/15

Our wonderful sponsor this week is Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  

Our featured scripture:

Psalms 119:105
Your Word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.

I've meditated on this scripture all week. Trying to visualize what it means to me. How to translate it in our modern world.  Obviously the "WORD" is the bible.  God's instructions written for all of us to read, learn, memorize and live our life.  

The sphere in the background represents the world as well as how God's Word travels.  When we've done our job of meditating & learning the Word-we can share it with others.
The city cut out (cricut cartridge) represents our path-the town where I live.  It's little windows in the buildings are God's children.  We are scattered throughout our town.  We each can encourage each other and be a light in the darkness.
The lamp resembles the kind Jesus might have used.  The lily image is from Fred She Said and reminds me of Jesus.  Jesus is always with us.  Inside & out.  May we always remember-he didn't leave us alone-he left us with his Holy Spirit.

Thanks for stopping by this week. May God bless you!

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.
