Word Art Wednesday Scripture transferred to canvas

I'm guest designing for Word Art Wednesday again!! The challenge is Anything Goes #470-471.

Christmas is such a special time of year.  All the decorations, presents, family and fun.  But there is so much more to Christmas than it being a holiday.  Christmas is the time Christians celebrate the birth of our Saviour and King! 

I love to incorporate scripture into my canvas paintings!!
Below is the FREE scripture being offered right now by Word Art Wednesday.

I started by applying DecoArt Matte Medium gel on my 12x12 flat board canvas. 
I printed the scripture out on my printer full size. Tear off around the edges so you only have the words.  Use a brayer to smooth out the paper into the gel medium. Let it dry overnight.

Next day, I spritzed water on top of the paper and started rubbing in circular motion around the paper.  This takes a little time, so be patient.  Soon, I had all the paper removed.  I applied a thin coat and wiped off of the Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint Timeless.  I dried it with my heat tool so I could sketch my design on top.  Once the design was sketched, I add some Americana Decor Chalky Finish -color Legacy.   Then painted in the image in Americana Black acrylic paint.

I love the result!!  Will be displaying on my mantel!

A young model. I started just tracing her, then I did colored pencils, then I added watercolor to her. I'm not great at people, but this...
