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!

You can win lots and lots of prizes by joining the Blog Hop where each of the WAW DT's will pick a winner from our personal Blogs that will win a prize from Emma's Paperie (picture shown below). And all you need to do is to leave each DT a comment.   Sadly, we can only accept and ship to United States participants at this time.  Be sure to finish the Blog Hop for more chances to win.   This is the prize I'm giving away:

I hope you'll join all the ladies in our blog hop and see what wonderful things they've created!!!

What a creative and unique use of the scripture verse, and so perfect for Christmas. I don't ever make home decor projects like this, so it's rather intimidating for me, but your result is just gorgeous. Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones!

Karen, I've never been able to master mixed media papercrafting... so am going to spend some time looking at your cards. Am thinking that might encourage and inspire me to dip my toe in the mixed media waters! This creation is amazing! I'm sure it drew lots of ooohs and ahhhs on your mantle this year.

Gorgeous decor piece focusing on the birth of our saviour, and a fab reminder to focus on our soon coming King and imitate Him in our daily lives.
