August Challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles

It's time for our August challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles!

 Scripture Focus for this month -
  But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life.     Jude 1:20,21

This month I made for our Scripture Inspiration:
I did a Bible journaling page using acrylic paints, some stamps and a stencil.
I tried to do that white crayon resist technique, but it didn't turn out very well...I ended up tearing my page.  So I printed out the verse on white paper and glued it onto my page.

It's time for our May challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles!

 Scripture Focus for this month -
Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:4

Creative Prompt Technique for His Kingdom Come


I am doing this week's creative prompt for His Kingdom Come.
I am doing a technique I learned in a sketching class I took last year.
This technique is painting with a Stabilo All Pencil, White Gesso & Water.
 
My prompt is:
I Am In Christ
I am making my project based on John 15:1,5
I am a branch of the true Vine, Jesus, a channel of His Life.

John 15:1 "I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener."
John 15:5 "I am the Vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing." 

Jesus is the source of my life.  Without Him I can do nothing.  I am a branch of Him.  If I don't stay in Him, my life is lived in the flesh...and that is disaster!    He is the source of living out my daily life.  I need to stay connected to Him to live out my life and operate for Him, through Him.  He gives me everything I need to live according to His Will and purpose.  To be able to share with others about Him.  To testify of His life and His love.  To walk my life in faith so others see Him through me.
I sit in the comforts of my home, with electricity and all the comforts that it provides that I take for granted.  But if I fail to pay our electric bill and it gets shut off,  it goes dark and cold...absolutely nothing will work.  
That's how it is being connected to Christ...without Him, absolutely nothing will work.

Let's begin on this weeks prompt :)
To begin with, draw your image in using a regular pencil.
Then draw over it with your Stabilo All Pencil.  I used a green stabilo all pencil.
Use a size paint brush that will work good for your image.  I used a pretty small tipped brush.
I put some Gesso in a small throw away cup so I would not get the green color in my bigger jar of Gesso.)
After you have done this...use a paint brush to dip in water and then your gesso and paint it all in.
I then wrote out all of the words and a couple of squiggles & a little heart and did the same technique on them.
After this was completely dry - I sprayed Workable Fixatif over it to set it.
I then used yellow watercolor paint to paint the background in.
After it was completely dry, I then went around all of the edges with Gelatos...I used colors Gold and Yellow.

Here is my finished project

Supplies Used:
Watercolor Cardstock
Pencil
Stabilo All Pencil (I used green)
White Gesso
Water
Paint Brush
Workable Fixatif
Watercolor Paint (for the background)
Gelatos (for the edges - I used Gold & Yellow)

I hope you have enjoyed this technique.
It is a technique that I really enjoy using.  I like the way it looks.

April's Challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles

It's time for our April challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles!

 Scripture Focus for this month -
"In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight."
Proverbs 3:6

This month I'm doing the Card Sketch
For my card I used a white card.  I stamped on this cute Gorjuss stamp, added a butterfly and some pink pearls around it.  I did a die cut for my sentiment, and stamped on the Thinking Of You.

Here is the card sketch

I made my card sort of flipped so that the long way is up and down, instead of side ways.
