"Things Above" by ~Donna

Hello again! Wow... two posts from me in one day! It's been forever since I've done this. But, I am behind and I'm catching up so really I guess it isn't that impressive... LOL!

I made this mixed media canvas for the His Kingdom Come "Take Me Deeper" project. The bible verse is Colossians 3:2 - "Set your affection on things above not on things on the earth". 

I felt that a starry sky was a great background for this bible verse so I made the background with my Smooch Spritz from Clearsnap again. The Smooch Spritz makes these wonderful little spots when you dry the spritz with a heat gun, especially if it is spritzed over a wet medium. In this case I added a tiny bit of Ceramic Stucco to the entire background but made it thicker towards the bottom. I spritzed it with Sea Breeze on the top, Wood Stain on the bottom and added a light misting of water to get the spritz dripping then I dried it with a heat gun.

In the photo below you can see the texture that showed up when the spritz dripped into the wet Ceramic Stucco paste as well as a little bit of crackling.

In the photo below you can see some of those spots that showed up in the Smooch Spritz background as well as my FAVE little E-Z Stars from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™ with some Twinkle Dust Glitter from Clearsnap. I used Spectrum Noir alcohol pens to outline the stars, the bible verse and add a little bit of doodling around the edge of the bible page border on the canvas.

Below is another close up of the background and stars. I also used my Mix'd Media Inx CHOX around the edge of the canvas to give it a vintage feel and to also stamp the bible verse.

 I painted the heart with Ceramic Stucco then added some Liquitex paint over the top. I used my Brown Pigment Powder mixed with Fast Finish Decoupage around the outside of the heart.
