Choose Joy


I have another mixed media project to share with you today. This is another 16 x 20 canvas made to be hung in our office gallery. I was inspired by this canvas I saw on Pinterest. I loved it and decided to make my own version. I started by cutting patterned paper in various lengths but with a width of 2". I used gel medium to adhere them to the canvas. I used some acrylic and distress inks applied with a baby wipe to provide a color wash over the collage background. Using thin cardboard, I made a pattern for the leaves and flower petals. The petals are about 5.5" x 2.75". Using the 6" x 6" Blooming Garden Collection of patterned papers by Our Daily Bread Designs I traced and cut lots of petals. The petals, leaves and stem were distress with distress inks. The sentiment was printed on the same patterned papers using my computer. The edges were distressed and a black marker was used to free-hand draw a double border that was intentionally not straight.


The center was made by layering two patterned paper die cuts and then topping them with bugle beads and seed beads. Gel medium was used to adhere both the die cuts and the beads. A china ink marker was used to add shading to the petals, stem, leaves and sentiment panels.

Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Background - Prima (Printery Collection 6 x 6 pad), Flower Petals and Sentiment Panels - Our Daily Bread Designs (Blooming Garden Collection 6 x 6), Flower Petals and Stem - The Paper Studio
Inks: Distress Ink (Vintage Photo)
Tools/Embellishments: Distress Markers for leaves/stem (Frayed Burlap, Shabby Shutters), Faber Castell Pitt Calligraphy Pen (Walnut Brown), Cousin Corp Glass Bugle Beads, Spellbinders dies (Petite Scalloped Circles Large, Standard Circle Small), Seed Beeds - unknown brand, Staedtler black fine tip marker, Distress Collage Medium, Master's Touch Matte Gel, Distress Paint (Blueprint Sketch), Craft Smart Acrulic Paint (Pale Blue), Computer Generated Sentiment

I'm entering this canvas in the following challenges:

Crop Stop April Challenge - Use Items/Brands from the Crop Stop Store (I used Ranger, Spellbinders, Fiskars, Cuttlebug, and Prima)

God Gives Wisdom

Hello!  I hope this finds you having a good week. It's time for another Word Art Wednesday challenge. This week we're focusing on James 1:5, "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him." I can tell you from recent, first hand experience that this verse is absolutely true. My mother-in-law has been living with us since the fall of 2015. Her health has been gradually declining. She was hospitalized a couple weeks ago and is currently in rehab, however, she has reached the point that she needs care we can no longer provide at home. We've prayed a lot about how best to care for her and for the Lord to open doors about what He'd have us do. He has opened doors and provided a great place for rehab and now a great place for her long-term care. We are still in the transition process, and it is very difficult for her and for us. Our heads agree with her doctor that this is the best thing for her, but our hearts still have to catch up.


Stamp Simply is one of our sponsors this week. They kindly provided me with the Thinking of You Rose stamp set to use. I stamped the rose image in VersaFine Onyx Black ink onto water color paper and then clear heat embossed it. After water coloring it with distress inks, it was fussy cut and partially popped up on the card front. The stamp set has a coordinating die to cut out the rose but I don't own it. Two pieces of patterned paper were used on the card front with a diecut border layered with a cardstock strip and piece of ribbon between them. The verse panel was matted with pink cardstock and layered on the front. Some black gems finish off the card front.


For the interior decorating, another rose was stamped on a watercolor panel, heat embossed and water colored with Distress inks. One of the sentiments from the stamp set was also heat embossed. The watercolor panel was matted and adhered to the interior of the card.


Supplies:
Cardstock: Georgia Pacific (white for verse on front), The Paper Studio Heavy Weight (white for cardbase), Recollections (black), Unknown (Pink cardstock and watercolor paper)
Patterned Paper: The Paper Studio (Petals and Blooms 6 x 6 pad)

Ink: Versafine (Onyx Black), Distress inks for watercoloring (Festive Berries, Picked Raspberry, Lucky Clover, Mowed Lawn)
Tools/Embellishments: Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps die (Laceye Eyelet Border - retired), Spellbinders dies (Labels Four, Labels Four Small), Want2Scrap Baby Bling, Offray ribbon

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Ye Shall Find Rest

It is time for another Word Art Wednesday Challenge. This week we're focusing on Matthew 11:29, "Take my yoke upon you and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls." The Lord wants us to get to know Him. That fact alone amazes me. He wants me to spend time with Him so that I can get to know Him better. And what does He promise that I'll find if I do take the time to get to really know Him? I'll find rest for my soul. We are in an incredibly busy season of life and physical rest is in short supply. While I realize this verse is talking about spiritual rest, I am open to any and all rest I can get! As we place our trust in the Lord and experience spiritual rest, this will lead to emotional rest. We can be less anxious about the things around us and our circumstances. This emotional rest then frequently leads to being able to get better physical rest. What a blessing!!



I wanted a card that would look special and yet be easy to make. For me that means a fancy fold card. I remembered this card I made last August when I was a guest designer for Our Daily Bread Designs. I loved that fold and decided to bring it back for today's card. For the card I used one piece of cardstock measuring 4.25" x 11" and another measuring 2.5" x 11". Each piece was scored along the 11" side at 2.75" and 5.5". A Scor-Pal makes the measuring and scoring so easy. A bone folder helps get crisp folds on each piece.


Bugaboo stamps was kind enough to provide this 4 Block Tulip Digi Stamp for me to use for today's card. Thanks Bugaboo!! I colored it with Copic markers and accented it with a white gel pen and some star dust stickles. After cutting it out, I double matted it before popping it up on the card with foam tape. I used 3 Standard Square (Large and Small) Spellbinders dies to die cut the verse panel and mats.


The teal cardstock behind the image and verse panels and on one of the interior panels was dry embossing used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and my Grand Calibur machine. A white panel provides a place to write a short message to the recipient. Star Dust Stickles on the patterned paper design finish off the card.

Supplies:
Cardstock: Recollections (teal), Georgia Pacific (white)
Patterned Paper: Recollections (Teal Paisley)
Stamps: WORDart by Karen, Bugaboo Digi Stamps (4 Block Tulip Square)
Copics: V20, 22, 25; G16, 14; R22, 24, 27, YG23, 25; B01
Tools/Embellishments: Spellbinders Dies (Classic Squares Large and Small), Stickles (Star Dust), Cuttlebug embossing folder (Anna Griffin-Honeysuckle Vines), Uni-Ball Signo White Gel Pen

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Mighty Waves of the Sea

Hello! I hope your week is going well. Mine has been a busy but good week. It's time for another Word Art Wednesday Challenge. This week we're focusing on Psalm 93:4, "The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea." When you stand on the ocean shore and gaze out over the waves, you can't help but be amazed at the power and majesty of the ocean. Sometimes, the waves roll gently to shore and at other times they crash and roar. The Lord, the Creator of all, is mightier than the powerful waves of the ocean and in fact, controls their movements.  Sometimes in our lives, it seems like the waves of trials roar and crash against our souls and we wonder, "Does God know? Does He care?" He is mightier than those types of waves too. He does care and He is right there beside you to guide you safely to the shore. At least 15 times in the book of Psalms, God is spoken of as our refuge. My two favorites are: Psalm 57:1, "Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast." and Psalm 91:2, "I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust." If the trials in your life seem to be threatening to toss you in the billowing waves, turn to the Lord and allow Him to be your refuge.


When I read this week's verse, I knew the papers from the By the Shore collection by Our Daily Bread Designs would be perfect for it. I chose to make a center step card and used two of the papers from the collection on the front.


The sentiment panel was matted and popped up at an angle over a ribbon loop accented with a button and baker's twine. I die cut some birds from a scrap of patterned paper. After adhering them to the card front and sentiment panel, they were coated first with Wink of Stella and then with Nuvo Jewel Drops. I really like the epoxy look they have. A trio of sequins finishes off the card front.


For the interior decorating, a sentiment was stamped on another one of the patterned papers in the collection. This panel was matted and then adhered to the card interior.


The finished card is approx 5.5" square and will stand up for display.

Supplies:
Cardstock: Core'dinations (Black Iris), Recollections (kraft), Georgia Pacific (white)
Patterned Paper: Our Daily Bread Designs (By the Shore 6 x 6 pad)
Stamps: WORDart by Karen (Psalm 93:4), Morningstar Stamps (H63 Praying You Will Find wood block stamp)

Ideal Beauty


I think this canvas is one of my first, if not the first, projects in the "mixed media" category. It is certainly my first canvas. At work, my boss wants to replace the poster type artwork with originals made by company employees and their families and have an art gallery type look. He provided the 16" x 20"canvases. I told him I work with paper not paint. He said, "That's OK. I don't care what you put on the canvas as long as you make some artwork."


I started with text tissue paper on the canvas. However, when I applied the acrylic paint over it, the text got completely covered. Lesson learned for the next canvas: use a baby wipe to lighten up the paint so you don't cover the paper underneath. I applied multiple shades of blue for the sky, and various greens for the grass. I used white gesso for the clouds and then later used texture paste and a stencil for addition texture on the clouds. (Click any picture to enlarge it)


I knew I wanted a tree but wasn't quite sure how to make it. I finally found a couple artists on Pinterest and YouTube that used hot glue strands to make the tree. It gives great texture and mimics bark really well. After the glue cooled, I painted it with multiple shades of brown for the bark and green for the leaves. I wanted some separation between the grass and sky, so I used a rubber stamp and dark green acrylic paint to stamp a row of bushes across the canvas. For additional texture, I colored texture medium with a medium colored green paint and used a stencil to add additional bushes on top.


I colored more texture medium with various shades of paint and used a brick stencil to make the path. After it dried, I put white acrylic paint in a fine tipped bottle and used it to make the grout. The Julie Nutting "Audrey" stamp was paper pieced. Copic markers were used to color her skin and hair and to add shading to her clothing. She was popped up over the canvas.


After printing the quote on white cardstock, I die cut it and layered it on additional die cuts for dimension. I inked the edges of the clouds and layered several in the sky. I sprayed them with some glimmer mist spray to give them a shimmery look. Some paper flowers and paper punched butterflies add the finishing touches.

Supplies:
Stamps: Penny Black wood stamp (Splendor), Prima Julie Nutting cling stamp (Audrey)
Inks: Memento (Tuxedo Black), Distress Ink (Dusty Concord, Tumbled Glass)
Papers: Recollections Printed Tissue, Hot Off the Press patterned paper (Lavender Rosebuds), Core'dinations cardstock (purple glitter)
Paint: Anita's Acrylic Paint (Hunter Green, Foliage, Espresso, Earth Brown, Latte), Craft Smart Acrylic Paint (Pale Blue, Apple Tart, Bright Palm Denim), Folk Art Acrylic Paint (Metallic Pearl White), Apple Barrel Acrylic Paint (Red Apple)
Copics: BV0000, 000, 00, 11, 13, 17; E00, 11, 31, 35, 37; R20; YR20, 24
Other: Artist's Loft White Acrylic Gesso, Teresa Collins Modeling Paste, Deco Art Texture Medium, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (pearl), Want2Scrap stencils, Ad Tech Hot Glue Sticks, Ranger Distress Collage Medium, Art C Brass Template, The Paper Studio Poppies & Paperie White Beaded Micro Flowers, Fiskars Butterfly Punch, Spellbinders Grand Big Scalloped Ovals dies

Christ Died for Us

Hello! Welcome back! It's time for another challenge at Word Art Wednesday. This week we're focusing on Romans 5:8, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." What an amazing love God has for us that even when we were sinners and totally uninterested in Him, He sent His Son to die for us! God made the way of salvation for us even before we were born so that someday we could live in Heaven with Him. Accepting this gift of salvation is as simple as A-B-C: A-Admit that we are a sinner and in need of salvation; B-Believe that Jesus died on the cross for us to pay the penalty of our sin; and C-Confess our sin to the Lord and ask Him to come into our heart and save us. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to me via the comments section or the contact me link.


For my card today, I kept my card design simple. One of our sponsors this week is Graciellie Design. They kindly provided me with the Count on Me digital stamp set. {I especially love the sentiments in this set. I'll be reaching for it again and again.} I printed 3 of the flower images, colored them with several purple shades of Copics and fussy cut them. After printing the verse on white cardstock, the panel was die cut with a stitched rectangle die. This was matted with purple glitter cardstock die cut with a rectangle die and mounted to the card front. The three flowers were arranged above the verse with the middle flower being popped up with foam squares. A white gel pen was used to accent the flower centers and Wink of Stella added some shimmer to each flower.

Supplies:
Cardstock: Georgia Pacific, The Paper Studio Heavy Weight, Core'dinations Glitter
Stamps: WORDart by Karen (Romans 5:8), Graciellie Design (Count on Me)
Copics: BV11, 13, 17; V20, 22, 25
Tools/Embellishments: My Favorite Things Blueprints 29 & Blueprints 1 dies, Uniball Signo White Gel Pen, Memento Marker (Tuxedo Black), Wink of Stella

Love You So Much



Better late than never right? Here is the card I made for Tim for Valentine's Day. It uses the Turtle Couple stamp set and dies that he picked out for me in 2016 (you can read about how he found this stamp set here). I used the heart die in the set to make the opening in the card front.  The turtles and heart were colored with Copics. I fussy cut the heart on its outline so that it would fit through the opening when attached to the inside with foam squares. The turtles were also popped up on the card front with foam squares. A sentiment from the Thinking of You Rose stamp set by Stamp Simply was added to a banner die cut to finish off the front.


A sentiment from the Turtle Couple stamp set was added below the heart on the interior. This was a fun and fairly quick card to make.

Cardstock: Georgia Pacific, Bazzill
Patterned Paper: Basic Gray (Hillside 6 x 6 - retired)

Above All Things

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you and yours are staying away from all the viruses and yucky stuff that seems to be floating around. I have been recovering from bronchitis for the last couple of weeks. That cough seems to take forever to go away!! Enough of that, it's time for a new challenge at Word Art Wednesday. This week our focus verse is Colossians 3:14, "And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness." Many times in the Bible the word "charity" means love. I think it's interesting that this verse tells us to "put on" love. It makes me think of putting on a coat. You may say, "But love is an emotion. You can't put it on and take it off." Actually, as one wise man once told us, "Love is more an action to be learned that a feeling to be felt." To love as God does, we must be loving. That doesn't mean that we don't challenge people to change their ways when they are doing wrong. But it does mean that we love the sinner while we hate their sin. It does mean that we are loving and kind to those who treat us with anger and sarcasm. It takes effort and self discipline but with God's help we can become known for our loving actions.



Stamp Simply is one of our sponsors this week. They generously provided some goodies for us to try. For my card today, I stamped the rose from the Thinking of You Rose clear stamp set and colored the roses with Copic Markers. While this stamp set does have a coordinating die, I don't own it (yet). So I fussy cut each of the roses. The background die is from Gina Marie Designs. I die cut the A2 Lattice Panel die from kraft card stock and then used distress ink to give it some additional dimension. The roses were arranged on the lattice and tucked into it. I shorted the stems on the top two roses. The Scripture was die cut with a banner die and then the edges were inked with the same Distress Ink used on the lattice panel. Some die cut hearts from my stash, some sequins, stickles and Nuvo Crystal drops were scattered on the front. It's hard to see in the picture but the lattice panel and the roses were coated with Wink of Stella for some beautiful shimmer.

Supplies:
Cardstock: Recollections (Cream card base, kraft), Copic (70# marker paper)
Stamps: WORDart by Karen, Stamp Simply (Thinking of You Rose)
Ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black), Distress Ink (Vintage Photo)
Copics: YG03, 05, 13, 21, 23, 36; R81, 83, 85
Dies: Gina Marie Designs (A2 Sized Lattice Panel Die), WRMK (Party Banners-retired)
Embellishments/Tools: Stickles (Cotton Candy), Zig Wink of Stella Glitter brush marker (clear), Nuvo Jewel Drops (Clear)

Because of His Lovingkindness

Hello and Happy Wednesday!! I hope you're staying warm in your corner of the world. We got 4" of snow today so the outside looks like a winter wonderland. It's so pretty but I'm also glad for the warm fireplace in our living room. :) I'm back with another challenge at Word Art Wednesday. This week we're focusing on Psalm 63:3, "Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee." Dictionary.com defines "lovingkindness" as tender kindness motivated by or expressing affection. The Lord is good to us and shows us kindness as a way of expressing His love for us. I'm still trying to figure out why He would love me and He is being kind to me to show me how much He loves me! With this in mind, how could we do anything else but praise Him?


I used scraps from a wintery 6 x 6 paper pad for my card today. I added lots of sparkle by dotting random snowflakes in each of the 3 snowflake patterns and random intersections on the plaid with Stickles glitter glue. The hearts were coated with Nuvo Crystal Drops. I'm still working to get my mojo flowing again after being out of my craft room for so long so this sketch by Reverse Confetti was just what I needed.

Supplies:
Sketch: Reverse Confetti Sketch #55
Cardstock: The Paper Studio Heavyweight (card base), Georgia Pacific (sentiment panel)
Patterned Paper: Doodlebug 6 x 6 pad (Polar Pals)
Stamp: WORDart by Karen
Tools/Embellishments: Spellbinders Dies (Standard Circle Small, Eyelet Circles), My Favorite Things Die-namics (Blueprints #29) Nuvo Crystal Drops (clear), Stickles glitter glue (Star Dust)

Ye Shall Not Fear Them

Happy New Year!! Welcome to the first challenge at Word Art Wednesday. This week we're focusing on Deuteronomy 3:22, "Ye shall not fear them: for the Lord your God he shall fight for you." Wow! I think this is such a great verse of comfort. If the Lord is doing the fighting for us, why should we fear anything? This verse goes great with Romans 8:31, "What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?" As we look around our world and wonder what the new year may hold for us, our families and our country, we may be tempted to fear. But let's remember that the Lord is fighting for us and we have no need to fear.


For my card this week, I chose to use several products from Our Daily Bread Designs.They just released two types of Center Step card and coordinating layer dies (A2 and 5.5" square). I don't have those dies, but I do have some of their pre-cut/pre-scored Center Step card bases. I thought the center step design would show case this verse perfectly. I used a Double Stitched Rectangle die to die cut the verse. I used the Mini Vintage Label die to cut out a piece of yellow patterned paper and then cut the die cut in half. Each half was used to accent the verse panel and to hold the ribbon in place. A Fiskars butterfly punch was used to punch a butterfly from solid patterned paper and from vellum. These were attached to the ribbon on the right side of the panel. The vellum layer was coated with clear Wink of Stella for some shimmer. Some rhinestones on the butterfly and on some flower centers finish off the card.

Supplies:
Card base: Our Daily Bread Designs Center Step 
Patterned Paper: Our Daily Bread Designs (Whimsical Wildflowers, Plum Pizazz), Taylored Expressions (Vellum)
Stamp: WORDart by Karen
Tools/Embellishments: Our Daily Bread Designs dies (Double Stitched Rectangles, Mini Vintage Label (retired)), Fiskars punch (Butterfly), Zig Wink of Stella (clear), Offray ribbon, The Paper Studio bling

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
