Word Art Wednesday Challenge #14

Word Art Wednesday challenge is featuring the scripture:

Job 19:25     I know my Redeemer lives.

I haven't always truly understood this verse. Until 2005 I hadn't really had my faith tested.  When you hear the words "you have a very aggressive type of cancer" you start thinking about life & death.

Do I really believe God is with me? 
Psalm 23 4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 

I spent 11 months in the hospital from Tuesday to Friday almost every week for chemo treatments. In the middle I had surgery where they removed my right bottom jaw & replaced it with a bone from my leg. 
God was with me every day! He carried me right thru.  I found out for sure-MY REDEEMER LIVES!

He loves me so much that he never left me. He blessed me with excellent doctors, nurses, CNA's.  He proved HE LIVES in the many people that crossed by path. He sent me strangers to be my friends who encouraged me. He made my family stronger. When I'd come home, I was met by cards, calls, food, prayer from my many friends and family. I have never felt so loved in my life!

God loves you just as much!  That's the great news.  You can ask him to live in your heart & forgive you of your sins and you'll never be alone again.   

If you have questions or have a prayer request-leave a reply or send me an email. My God hears and answers every prayer. I'd be honored to pray with you.

In thinking about how could I represent a Redeemer who's alive? I chose butterflies in color. You'll notice I didn't color in all of them. Sometimes we don't "see" God in our lives-but he's there.  
 I started with plan white card stock. I stamped my butterflies using Tim Holtz Distress ink. I fussy cut the purple one & used a dimensional to make it pop.

 I want you to see this beautiful word art for yourself. You can print and use it for free @ Word Art Wednesday.

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!

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.
