Here's what I have prepared for you.. a canvas mixed media art! A little bit beyond my comfort zone, (which is usually just paper, scissors, glue, buttons and dew drops) but for you, I'm making something extra special, using a mix of media: paints, inks, embossing powders on a canvas. Hope you will like my "Daisy" art :)
Stop and smell the flowers. Pretty much how dear hubby and me choose to live our life right now. With God's grace and guidance, we try not to go with the flow of this fast, overly materialistic and crazy world. Choosing time (quality time is good but MORE of it is even better) to be with our kids, parents, loved ones and friends, doing what we love, focusing on the essentials, living in the moment --- all these over material wealth, fame, comfort and you-know-whatever-else :)
Because I believe, we may have all the things this world can offer but at the end of the day, are we really happy? Are we genuinely satisfied? By the time we close our eyes at night, can we honestly say "I'm ready to die"? Because the truth is, YOU and I can die anytime. Hmmn..
I am trying my best to be able to answer YES to that. Every night as I go to bed. It's really difficult considering there are so many temptations everywhere! By the way, I'm proud to tell you: I JUST KILLED MY LATEST TEMPTATION: CANDY CRUSH. LOL!
My FB status today says it all: He is the true bread of heaven that can satisfy the deepest hunger we experience.
Wow. Our coffee bonding sounds so serious.. let's get back to art :) lol! Here's are the main ingredients:
Memory Makers (paints, glitter)
Ranger (ink, clear embossing powder)
Robin's Nest (dew drops, glitter crackle cardstock)
Donna Downy (foam stamp)
1. Stamp canvas using the foam stamp and black archival ink and emboss it with clear embossing powder.
2. Mix purple and white paints with a little water.
3. Using a paint brush, let it drip from top to bottom, bottom to top.
4. While still wet, let the paint blend by spraying water. Play with it. Add more paint. Spray occasionally until you get the look that you want :)
5. Dry it with the drying tool.
6. Add some glitter here and there.
7. Add the daisies.
8. Add journaling. Mix alphabet stamps and your handwriting. It's more fun and personalised.
