Inspired Stamps DT Choice

 I hope you all had a safe and happy 4th of July.  It is a bit dry here, with a "no burn ban" in place so only a few places kept there scheduled fireworks show. We stayed in and enjoyed each other as a family. 
Today the DT at Inspired Stamps was asked to make a project of our choice.  I have been busy this past week reorganizing my craft space and I have always loved this verse from the Guard your Heart set, so I thought I would step out of my comfort zone and make a whimsical piece of art for my craft space.
I used a piece of canvas and painted the background with acrylic paints. (Just some sky and grass.)  I taped some clouds in place and then painted the sky and removed the clouds.  I later added some snow glitter in the clouds for dimension and sparkle.  I stamped the verse from Philippians on a large die cut flower (Spellbinders) and highlighted the key words with chalk.  I decoupaged the whole image (flower, stem and leaves, Spellbinders).  I then added some 3D items, like the yellow flower (made with the Cricut) and the butterflies with bling.  Like I said this not my comfort zone, but it was fun to put all the elements together.  I hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by.  Please be sure to stop by the other DT blogs to see their projects which are sure to WOW you!
