LIGHT....AND OUR GOD! TWO DAYS OF FUN CREATIVING WITH HIM




LYRICS FROM THE SONG OUR GOD, BY CHRIS TOMLIN

Our God is greater, our God is stronger
God You are higher than any other
Our God is Healer, awesome in power
Our God, Our God…

Into the darkness you shine
Out of the ashes we Rise
There’s no One like You
None like You.

I AM HAVING A DELIGHTFUL TIME. HERE ARE A COUPLE OF PROJECTS I DID.

THE GIRL SEEKING THE LORD WITH ALL HER HEART IS A JOURNAL. IT HAS LAYERS AND LAYERS OF VINTAGE PAPERS, PAINT, STENCILS DONE WITH MOLDING PASTE, AND MUCH MORE! IT WAS HOMEWORK FOR THE ON LINE COURSE I AM TAKING. LEARNED SO MANY NEW TECHNIQUES.
THE PAPER IS RECYCLED WATERCOLOR PAPER....CAN'T WAIT TO PAINT IN IT NOW.

THIS MORNING I WOKE UP AND STARTED TO PREPARE FOR THE WATERCOLOR DROP CLASS I AM TEACHING NEXT WEEK AND ALL I COULD THINK ABOUT WAS DOING A MELTED CRAYON PICTURE. I GAVE IN TO THE NUDGE AND IT WAS SO MUCH FUN. I REALLY DID NOT HAVE MUCH OF AN IDEA WHERE IT WAS GOING....JUST STARTED CREATING. I LOVE THE OUTCOME. I CALL THIS ONE OUT OF THE DARKNESS......SEEMS LIKE I AM DOING LOTS OF PICTURES ABOUT LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS OR FOLLOWING THE LIGHT.

IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY, YOU WILL SEE THE FRUIT BOWL PICTURE I AM PAINTING NOW IN MY OIL PAINTING CLASS. I TOOK A PICTURE OF THE LIGHT SHINING ON THE FRUIT BOWL IN MY KITCHEN LAST YEAR. YOU CAN SEE THE BLOWN UP PICTURE UNDERNEATH THE PAINTING.

WHEN I LOOKED AT THAT PHOTOGRAPH IT MADE ME THINK THIS... OFTEN TIMES WHEN YOUR TIMES ARE HEAVY OR DARK OR SAD, TRUST THE LORD THAT IF YOU KEEP YOUR EYES ON HIM AND YOUR HEART CLEAN AND MOTIVES PURE, HE WILL PRODUCE FRUIT IN YOUR LIFE.

ANOTHER OF THE PAINTINGS YOU CAN SEE IS A LITTLE GIRL WALKING ON A PATH TOWARDS THE LIGHT. I DID THIS ONE ON BLACK GESSO COVERED WITH SHEETROCK PLASTER AND THEN CARVED OUT THE DETAILS OF THE PICTURE SO WHEN I PAINTED IT, THE BLACK WOULD SHOW AN OUTLINE AROUND THE IMAGES. IT WAS FUN TOO.

WELL, BACK TO GETTING READY FOR THE WATERCOLOR DROP CLASS NEXT WEEK-END.
I WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR PRAYERS FOR THIS. I WANT IT TO BE A SPECIAL TIME OF FELLOWSHIP IN THE LORD AND TEACHING WOMEN HOW TO USE ART TO MAKE CARDS TO BLESS OTHERS.

HAPPY SATURDAY....BURRRRRR BUT SUNNY.
