I am His Workmanship

Hello Friends,

Did you know that you are God's workmanship - his masterpiece - and that he has designed good things for you to do in this life? Ever wonder why you love colour, or fabric, or paper or animals? Do you enjoy writing, encouraging people, cooking good meals or taking photographs? All of those good works that enrich your life and the lives of those you touch were designed by God for your pleasure and his. You are beautiful, amazing, smart and talented. He made you just the way you are. He loves you completely and has very good plans for your life.

The scripture for this week's study at His Kingdom Come, the Take Me Deeper group, is Ephesians 2:10: "For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."
I started by sponging on deep purple acrylic paint. Once that was dry I stenciled on fern leaves with Gesso. Next I added drips of gold mica powder mixed with pouring medium. I smudged on some pink metallic acrylic paint with my finger just before gluing down acetate butterflies that I cut from a sheet.
I thought this K&Company die cut butterfly made a nice focal point as it stands out from the rest.
My lettering was done with a black Sharpie and a white gel pen. I smudged acrylic paints around my words to make them stand out.
Thanks for visiting my blog today. I appreciate you stopping by and I hope you were encouraged or inspired in some way.

Blessing hugs,

Paint Party Friday - art/painting
