HKC - Life More Abundant by ~Donna

Hello my peeps! I'm sharing the 8x10 mixed media canvas that I made this week for the "Take Me Deeper" project on the His Kingdom Come site. I really liked the idea of this canvas and how it looked in my head but it didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted it to. I filled the heart with paper flowers that I die cut using my Carnation Creations dies and a paperback bible (that I got specifically for crafting). I wanted the flowers and pearls to show an abundantly overflowing heart with the word of God blooming inside and little gems (adhesive pearls) strewn about. That is how I made it but after I sealed the flowers and pearls the flowers kinda got lost in the mix. It is still a cute canvas but not what I wanted it to be. Oh well... I don't have to love every single canvas right?

Here are the pictures:

In the photo below you can see my new Lace Ribbons from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™ (the loopy lace and the wide lace across the bottom and I also tied the wide lace into a bow). I used Fast Finish Decoupage to stiffen up the bow.

In the photo below you can see a close up of all the teensy little flowers that I die cut out of a bible using my Carnation Creation dies from Spellbinders. You can also see where I outlined the heart with some Spectrum Noir pens. I like that these pens work well over paint and decoupage mediums.

In the photo below you can see the DIY Decor Tape Wooden Grain that was used on the background of this canvas as well as a mish mash of several different stencil mask fonts... both from Hazel and Ruby.

The photo below shows my Lace Ribbons (from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™) that go across the top of the canvas. You can also see how I shadowed the words with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

Where to find Donna:


  1. Even though it wasn't exactly as you pictured Donna - thank you so much for sharing. What's the old adage - "the heart says what the heart wants to say" as in this case :) Love the abundance of the tiny flowers inside the heart. Isn't it incredible that abundant life from the Lord comes in many forms... some days all we need in our heart is the sight of an abundance of tiny flowers in the spring (or in your heart on this page). It's perfect. j.

    1. What a sweet comment! You are always so thoughtful in your comments... Thank you! :)

  2. Well, I can see the flowers, Donna - and I think they look gorgeous! :)

  3. I love it! The texture on the heart is awesome!
