Word Art Wednesday Challenge

Hello everyone!  Thanks for stopping by. We have a beautiful Word Art Scripture this week:

This is a PROMISE from our God to us.  He knew the trials and temptations we'd have to face. He's bigger than any problem we have to face. We can put our total trust in Him!

In studying the scripture my mind went to a lighthouse. Built strong on the rocks it withstands storm winds & waves. It has to be tough so it can help the boats find the shore. It's light shines thru the clouds showing the captains of the ships the direction they are to go.

I roughly sketched the image on my canvas & then painted it with acrylic paint.  I added the scripture using mod podge.  The canvas is 9x12.

I wanted to paint the lighthouse to show the strong rock formation that is the base of the lighthouse. Building our foundation on the promises of God is the main start of our Christian walk.  We can hold tight in the storms of life knowing they will come, but Christ has our back!

Stacked Pumpkins Class

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…
