Tickell Expressions

Saturday, 8 August 2015


Hello Friends,

The Take Me Deeper theme for August at His Kingdom Come is Thankfulness. His Kingdom Come is a faith-art community of people who love Jesus and want to express their faith in creative ways - painting, writing, fiber arts and more. All art skill levels are welcome.

Here is my page for Week One of August, in progressive stages:
Green ink spray through stencils; hole cut on right side, gold acrylic paint on page beneath.
Gold paint on honeycomb stamp; bees stamped; cherry cobbler ink sponged
Stamped, punched bird (SU); clock digi (Anji's Antics); tag with bird made
Completed layout
And the details:
Scripture in stenciled shapes; Tombow & Sharpie markers
Front of tag; SU stamped, punched bird & branches; fiber tie taped to page
Back of tag with verse Matthew 6:33; tie is mounted to page by fabric button
Digis (l-r): Little Birdie Blessings, Anji's Antics, Sweetly Scrapped
God promised the Israelites a "land flowing with milk and honey". I already had the bees and honeycomb background stamps so I drew a little jug. I coloured it with Tombow markers and painted white liquid pouring from it to represent the milk.

Thanks for dropping by today. I hope you are well and happy. Most of all, I hope you know that you are beautiful and you are loved.

Blessing hugs,

Art Journal Journey - Time
Paint Party Friday - paint
Try It On Tuesday - stencils
Inspiration Destination - anything goes
Simon Says Wednesday - tie it up
