Word Art Wednesday Challenge

Hello everyone! Time for another wonderful scripture challenge.

This week our scripture is:


As Christians, part of our job is to share Christ's love with other.  So many people think they can't witness to others.  It doesn't have to be a big paragraph being said that tells others about Christ-it's the every day life we live. Every where we go, what we say, how we react to situations-that's "letting our light shine" so that God will be glorified.

Have you done something nice for someone lately?  I made a big pot of mashed potatoes, cabbage & bought some KFC. Made 3 meals & delivered them yesterday while I was off.  Couple of senior saints and my aunt who recently had knee surgery.  They all were super glad to see me (they didn't turn the food down).  That's one way to "let your light shine".

My card using our scripture:
The background for my scripture was cut with spellbinder die.  The background paper is K & Co.
I used dimensional s on the back of the scripture.
 I stamped the lighthouse image on vellum with versa mark & then embossed it in black. I colored the back of the vellum with markers in a few places.  The white background paper I painted sand & sky.  When I put them together-my total image worked well.

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…
