Take Me Deeper - Power Of The Spirit by ~Donna

Hello my peeps! I'm a little late posting the pics for this week's canvas for the Take Me Deeper project for His Kingdom Come. I used one of my favorite background techniques made with my Smooch Spritz from Clearsnap. This stuff does amazing things on untreated canvas and also when spritzed over acrylic paint. When you use it with water you can get the most amazing swirly effects.

The month of March is all about the journey to the cross. This week was when Jesus was tempted for 40 days and 40 nights then returned in the Power of the Spirit. I tried to show both night and day on this canvas with the darker blue and the stars on the left symbolizing the night. 

In the photo below you can see the swirls from the Smooch Sprit. The damask was made from a DecoArt stencil and Liquitex Ceramic Stucco texture paste. The stars were made with my E-Z Stars from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™ and my Twinkle Dust glitter from Clearsnap.

 The birds were made with Ceramic Stucco texture paste from Liquitex then colored with a glaze made from my Pigment Powder in Gold from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™ and Beacon's Fast Finish Decoupage.

When you use Smooch Spritz and water over wet acrylic paint then dry it with a heat gun you can get some really cool crackle effects on your projects. You can see how I got some crackle in the center of the canvas and some bubbling too.
