Glory Art 2016 with Patter Cross - #1 - Limitless

A new year of Scripture Challenges which I always enjoy.
If you have not already done so please visit Patter's blog HERE so you can read the thoughts that Patter has shared.
This year her challenges will be monthly which suits me well as this year I am doing real paper arts for my artwork on small canvases.

I chose to use stars in my artwork  because of the star systems being so far reaching and to us they do seem limitless.  How wonderful to worship a God whose understanding and His great love is limitless. There are no boundaries to whom He loves and is willing to forgive.

To create my art I did enjoy getting paint on my fingers. I used a Gelli Art Plate that I have owned for two years and never used. I did mono printing to create the deep blue metallic with stars paper. I used my oil pastels to create the border around the canvas. The flower was created using some of the printed paper I created. I had intended to use my own handwriting for the scripture and did try it but it looked not so nice as I have shocking handwriting.

I am displaying my canvases each month on a very small artist easel.

Glory Art Challenge #21 hosted by Patter Cross - His Gift and His Love

Please visit Patter's blog HERE to read her teaching for this last challenge for 2015.

I created a very quick little digital page for this challenge. I am so liking my The Voice Bible and the way different verses are worded.
How true that we do waste our lives in sin before we come to know God's wonderful love and the wonderful gift He gave us in Jesus.
I think sometimes even after giving our hearts and lives to Jesus, we still can waste our lives in doing unnecessary things.
May this coming year of 2016 be a year for you, those who visit my blog, and myself ,  a year of not wasting our lives but may our lives bring glory to our Loving Saviour.

I really enjoyed creating my page and used it for a challenge over at Gotta Pixel

Please visit Patter's blog here  to read her teaching about the theme she chose for us - Thankful.

I recently received in the mail my new The Voice Bible so I used a verse from that version for my digital artwork.

For my artwork I used a kit called Give Thanks by A-M Designs (this is me - I designed this kit some time ago for the monthly blog train I take part in. I have recolored the bow and the background paper a little.  You are welcome to download the kit from my other blog  HERE

Glory Art Challenge #17 Discouraged - hosted by Patter Cross

If you have not done so, please visit Patter's blog HERE and read what she has shared for this challenge.

When I found the scripture I wanted to use on my digital page I wanted to make it personal. It is a promise to me and to anyone else who truly believes in the Eternal One - our God and Father. We have not need to be afraid or discouraged because He is with us always - He will never leave us.

( Digital kit used - Proverbs 31 by Lori Imel )

Glory Art Challenge hosted by Patter Cross - #15 - Christ Esteem

It is nearly time for another challenge and I have only just created something  for this #15. 

If you have not already done so please pop over to Patter's blog  HERE and read her teaching on the theme for this challenge. 

"People are not your audience, God is."   This is something that Patter shared on her blog and it is to true and yet I so often live my life the opposite.  I live my life as though I am trying to please the world but no, that is not what the Lord is saying to me.  I need to take hold of the scripture I have used on my digital artwork. I need to look to the Lord to sustain me - not me sustain myself. 

for my artwork I used products by Lori Imel in her kit called "Summer in Bloom" and the paint splatter is by JIC Creations from Summer Fun.
