Sunday Mornings

Today, I am here to share with you a painting I did after taking Mindy Lacefield’s  Sunday Morning class.  In this class you drew your inspiration from God’s word. It was about connecting your painting to your feelings of faith.

We were to find a bible verse that you like and paint that scene. I have always found comforter in Ephesian 5:8 “For at one time you were the darkness but now you are the light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.”

Gelli Arts Print- Cat

I spent some time down in my studio. I just wanted to play. One of first loves is collage. I have been thinking about doing a cat collage for a while so here he is.

The other thing I have been thinking about is “being yourself”. Learning to love the person you are and not changing so other people will love you.  I read this online- One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that’s trying to make you like everyone else.  Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but they will never be you.  Don’t change so people will like you.  Be yourself and the right people will love the real you. You shouldn’t have to change who you are to be around certain people! God made you the way you are for a reason and loves you just the way you are….we all have different talents…we are all a work in progress (WIP). Celebrate the true you! catgelliprintbycs copy catgelliprintcloseup copy How we should treat others…framedbeyourselfquote   Thanks for stopping in…hope you enjoyed my post! Hugs, signk

Bead Soup Blog Party 8th

Good Saturday Morning everyone-

I am finally here ( after a week delay) with the reveal of my bead soup. This was such a fun project. You swapped beads with a partner that Lori paired you up with mine was Klaudete Koon and then you have to make something with the beads you received from you partner. Technical just the clasp and focus have to be used.

I made a necklace, bracelet and 3 pairs of earring with all the goodies Klaudete sent me. I add some of my own beads to the mix as well. Since there are so many blog to drool over- I am going to keep this short and sweet.

Layers and Masking

On Monday, I got up and the sermon that Pastor Marc G.  gave on Sunday at Church was still on my mind. I got out my notes from the service and looked up some of the scripture that Marc talked about….the part that stuck in my heart was “I have learned to be content whatever the circumstance” from Philippians 4:11.  Am I really content in an circumstance ???? Honestly in my heart, I know I need to work on this…

So, I set off to work on my Life Book lesson. I watched the videos which were totally amazing. Part of the lesson was to mediate. Which I am not good at…my mind is going in a hundred directions at once all the time.  Yet, all that was on my mind was being content in an circumstance. Trusting the Lord.  So, I started the layers and painting.

Hello and Good Monday Morning,

Hope everyone had an amazing weekend. Today, I am here with a fun mixed media project using the flutter stencil and mask, canvas shapes (sunflower), and burlap (teal).

  I started out with a 6 x 6 block of wood. Then I just randomly painting the background in ocean-ish colors with a little touch of yellow 😉 I got creative with the flutter stencil of the owl and turned it sideways to make it look like a fish. Painted the fish with cute little faces. Cut and added the canvas sunflowers using glue. Next, I painted them and added a little burlap to the tops of them. I also used a button, washi tape, some words, black colored pencils, and gel pens. Once, I was all done I sealed it.

 

A couple of close ups for you! What journey will you embrace today?
Hope your have a creative day!
