The Love Chapter done Mixed Media


Our Scripture this week @ Word Art Wednesday is in  I Corinthians.  You find the FREE word art on our Perfect Sentiments site.

  When I think of "The Love Chapter" I can't help but think of Jesus.  My hearts desire is to love others as Jesus did.  The meaning of love is spelled out in this chapter. It sets high standards.  I have to work on it daily. But love is worth it-isn't it?

I start by printing the scripture on a thick piece of cardstock.  I then crumbed it up.  Straightened it back out.....
 The I took light & distress ink to lightly go over.  The lines grab the most ink
its looking old & weathered
 I sprayed cranberry mist & sponged-then sponged King's moon yellow.  I got my stamps out & stamped with momento brown ink around the edges of my canvas.
I came back with watered down yellow & highlighted the flowers.

 I added some tags, layered some Wild Orchid Roses to frame out the canvas.



I hope this will encourage you to incorporate scripture into your art.  We have 2 prizes this week:

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
