Inspired Stamps Bible Journaling DT Post

Hello everyone, Inspired Stamps is back today with some bible journaling inspiration.  I have seen scripture mixed media cards and I have been wanting to try.  I am new to mixed media, it definately takes me out of my comfort zone but it was fun.  I used IS Labelmaker Verses.  I stamped the Phillipians 4:13 verse on DCWV dp and cut all the words apart.  I wanted some of the words to be off kilter and emphasized with different color.  I added some Gelatos and stencil paste in the background and then glued on a cork heart and a handmade tiny rose.
Please let me know what you think.  This is my favorite verse and these are colors that make me happy.  It was a fun process but I think I definately need to play some more.
Have a great day and do not forget to visit the Inspired Stamps blog for more ideas and visit the Inspired Stamps Etsy store by clicking on "Shopping anyone?" tab.  Check out the other DT members to see what they have come up with.  Have a blessed weekend.

Inspired Stamps Thursday DT

Hello Everyone, Welcome back to the Inspired Stamps Thursday DT post.  Today we are bringing you some love themed projects.  
My first project is a flat canvas board that I made a small piece of art for my desk.  This verse is always a good reminder to us all, as followers of Christ "to guard our hearts"  so we can be a "light" to those around us.  I have been playing with mixed media a bit lately, but I find I still "play it safe" with a clean and simple design.  I have watched tutorials of how artists layer many things on their backgrounds, before adding the focal images.  These always turn out stunning but it will take more practice on my part to feel comfortable with it all.  I started by applying Gesso to canvas, then some modeling paste through a heart stencil.  I allowed all to dry and then added some metallic Gelatos.  I allowed this to dry and added the focal images: scripture is from Guard your Heart set and girl is Hymn girl January and then some punched glitter hearts.  I like how it turned out and can't wait to play again with more.

In case my mixed media canvas was not "love themed" enough I made an easel card.  For the card I used BoBunny paper in the Madeline collection, Hymn Girl February, Typewriter Text  Uppercase Alphabet by Inspired Stamps.  The love is a diecut using a die from My Yellow Bicycle to cut glitter craft foam.  I used distress inks on the edges and a bit of Tim Holtz lace and voila.  Please be sure to visit the Inspired Stamps blog for more inspiration. We have a very talented DT and you can click on the buttons that will lead to their blogs on the right.  Also if you are interested in purchasing any of the stamps I used or want to see more please click on the button under "shopping anyone?" and it will take you to the Etsy store where you can purchase these and many others and bonus, if you live in the US you can get free shipping.  I love free shipping!

Have a blessed day.  Share your love.
