Believe - I can do all things through Christ

Monday July 1, 2017
Well I have so many supplies and I have been wanting to do a mixed media type art piece and I love those kind of pieces.. So I said screw it.... I'm heading in. I can either love it or round file it... WELL I LOVE IT...
I started with a piece of 4.5 X 6 water color paper.. I sprayed three Dylusions sprays on it and spritzed with water and dried the piece.  I took a stamp that had writing on it and stamped it a couple places with out re-inking. I had a dandelion stamp I did the same. I then took Texture paste and a square stencil and added the paste in a few places.(I kind a like the bleed through vs. the white)  I then took a round stencil and some Art Anthology black texture paste that has grit in it, like a sand and did the circles in a few places.  I went through my chip board and found the piece with an arrow on it and a couple flowers. I colored them with Lumiere paint then went around the edges with some distressed crayons. I found this "I can do all things through Christ" from Paper Trey Ink stamped it on some cream card stock and cut out with a oval die cut. I took some gold Lumiere paint and added it over the sentiment. I die cut Simon Says Believe three times and layered them. Before I added anything I went around the edge of the piece with Distressed crayon in black and smeared it around.  I then added all of the pieces to the background base. I like that the arrow chipboard piece and Believe points down to the scripture.. I added a nice piece of white card stock behind the piece (since the backside was messy looking) it's on my coffee table so I can look at it daily. I hope it inspires me to create more.. I'd love to do a canvas piece. Plus I love the Believe - I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
