I hope you all have had a wonderful week!! Mine was filled with the joy of a precious wedding with Elizabeth adding Andrew to our fold.
This is my second week as a Guest Designer at Word Art Wednesday working with the lovely Word Art of the week. This verse shares attributes of God that I want to be reminded to incorporate into my life each day, kindness, tenderheartedness, forgiveness, and God's amazing gift of forgiveness towards me. When I saw this precious Scripture, I thought it was something I wanted to display rather than include on a scrapbook page or card, so I thought I would try creating my first canvas. Let me know what you think.
Be sure to head on over to Word Art Wednesday
to get your free copy of this fabulous Scripture.
Paper Pieced Ballerina ~ One of my favorite scrap artists is Gabriella Pollacco. I receive so much inspiration from her work. I've seen a fair number of she art canvases, but when I saw hers, I just ooohed and aaaawed over it. She provided a pattern, which I used, and video tutorial. I thought with this help, I would try my hand at it. The details and shoes were added with a fine tip marker. If you look closely you will see the words kind and forgiven taken from the verse and added to the edges of her skirt.
Doodling ~ I always love doodling, but rarely use it. With the doodled details on her dress, I thought the doodling around the Word Art and the vine edge would be nice details.
Mixed Media ~ I painted the edges of the canvas to coordinate with the colors of my girl, then Mod Podged torn pieces of paper to my canvas. I swiped some pale green paint across the center of the canvas then spritzed with water and dabbed with a paper towel to soften the color. I brushed white paint onto some bubble wrap and used it to stamp across the piece, then spritzed on some mist through some square holed punchinella.
I lightly laid some inexpensive sticker letters down the side to form the word tenderhearted, again from the verse, then spritzed two different shades of mist over them. Once dry, I removed the stickers and edged the letters with marker. I then created my girl as above. The white script was added last. I recently purchased Donna Salazar's Mixed Media Inx. I have to say the white "Jasmine" really showed up nicely. I've tried a number of different white inks only to be disappointed with the lack of coverage. Not the case with "Jasmine".
Butterflies ~ I received these charming little butterflies from Elena Olinevich last week. I painted them with alcohol ink, then sanded to bring out the details of the raised edges.
