Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

Getting settled…

We are beginning to get settled in our new home.  As much as this new season brings about the exciting change of owning a brand new place, full of hand picked aesthetics, the Lord has put it all in perspective as we walk along side […]

Eternity in our Hearts

Eternity in our Hearts

We will all have changing “seasons” in our lives.  As Jesus did before us, we will experience  weeping, but also find laughter…mourning,  but learn to dance… uprooting but also planting… breaking down, yet building up…life…but also death.  The great news is…it won’t be the end […]

Mixed Media Mini Canvas

Mixed Media Mini Canvas

As a parent and Children’s Ministry worker, I seek advice from the best parenting book there is…The Bible:)  Deuteronomy 6 is full of encouragement and wisdom…This was the inspiration for this mini canvas.

Mixed Media Mini Canvas

I started with a plain mini canvas sold in a pack of 6 at Michaels or Hobby Lobby.

I used modeling paste and a stencil to create the “diamond” background.

Next, I added color with both Distress Paint (“peeled paint”) & a similar shade in a Pan Pastel…finished with Distress ink pad in walnut stain.

I used the same walnut stain to color the mini clothes pins.

Mixed Media Mini Canvas

I cut the charm background out of a vintage Bible Story Book for Children, sealed with Glossy Accents by Ranger.

Deuteronomy 6:4-9

 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love theLord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
