Word Art Wednesday challenge

Hello from Virginia!
Hope your having a great week.  God is so good.
In a world where you can't trust hardly anyone-we can trust our Lord God.  His word says it & I believe it!
There is a lot of sorrow & heartache everywhere we look these days.   I don't like complaining to others-they really don't want to hear it.  But God says "pour out your heart before him". Your troubles, your good times, your praises-everything! He loves us and wants to hear it all.
I looked up what Selah means: praise, lift up, and pause. Praise the Lord-he cares!



 How'd I do it? 
On top of the plain lime green cardstock, I layered a tag that I sponged with acrylic paint & allowed to dry.
I cut the small & medium rectangles with spellbinder die. Before you take the paper off the die-sponge around the edges with distress ink.
I layered 3 hearts on top of each other & bent them to the middle.
I doubled my ribbon & tied a small piece around the middle to gather it. (my sweet sister in law makes BIG bows with that technique)


 Our sponsor this week is: Lisa's Altered Art.
You can't win if you don't play.  Our scripture this week is:

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…
