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.

Linnie Blooms, Mixed Media

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!
