A Card!

Just for something different. I used the slice to die cut the stamping space and the flower.

New Painting!!!

I made this during a painting class last Thursday night taught by one of my personal role models, Melody Ross, at Elida's Studio and Gallery in Camas, Washington. It was an awesome experience, in the true, old Biblical sense of "Awe-Inspiring". The next night, Friday, was Melody's first solo art show, also at the gallery. Meeting Melody Ross was unspeakably amazing. We are totally soul sisters! She really pierced my heart with truth. I have been deeply touched and truly transformed by this experience...I am so thankful that Melody exists. God's creation is immeasurably blessed that she is a part of our world! I will keep being a Brave Girl, and I will keep preaching the good news of being Brave Girls to transform our world, one beautiful soul at a time! Praise God!!!

Hope is the thing with Feathers...

This is a mini canvas, 6"x 3". I have been working on it all summer, veeeeerrrrryyyyy sloooooowly...I didn't want to ruin it so I was extra cautious, only adding a layer when I was completely sure that it would be the perfect next element. In the end she is a cutie...I am going to leave her with a friend here in Paris who I think she belongs with, just another really strong feeling...

She is Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

As I continue to create these girls, I am evolving a lot. The first one I made a lot of mistakes on, she was kinda my "ugly" practice girl. And there were things I didn't like about the 2nd and 3rd girls too...on this one I really tried to listen to my voice and I am very pleased with the result. The Bible verses that I use always occur to me very strongly, so perhaps they are being provided by the Holy Spirit! I still have 3 more girls to go in this series, but I might have to put off finishing them until after we move back to the USA, in 2 weeks!
