This Weekend's Creativity
And last, I worked on an altered photo album of my dad's life. I changed the cover from a flower pattern to the distressed background with script, added my dad's photo and title with modgepodge....I painted and decoupaged the next page with the copy of dad's life verse, then I added lots of pictures and other stuff that I am still working on. A friend I grew up with who knew my dad is reading a book with her book club written by another missionary who knew my dad and worked in the same areas. She wanted some pics to show her club of my dad's life and this gave me an excuse to finish something I had started to do years ago.....it's been very rewarding so far.
I also decoupaged and painted a box for my husband's desk with a frog on it. This frog reminds him of a sermon by Dr. Mac Brunson at FBC Jacksonville a few sundays ago. He told a story(this is my paraphrase) of a little boy crying by the side of the road, holding a pet frog and refusing to go to school that day. When asked why, by a man passing by, the boy said "I can't leave my frog all alone while I go to school...I don't know what would happen to him!!!!"....The man offered to take care of the frog that day so that he could continue his education and become an asset to England, which desperately needs him and his contribution to society ....about half way during the day at school, suddenly a herald entered the classroom called his name and announced....."the Earl would like to inform you that your frog is doing quite nicely"....the moral of the story is that whatever we are holding on to that keeps us moving forward and achieving our destiny will be quite safe in the hands of someone stronger and more powerful than us, Our Heavenly Father...and just like the boy if we let go and trust....God will take care of our every worry while we fulfill His will for us...
Hello! This weekend I have been doing some different artsy things. I did a drawing of my dog, Cookie on a gesso board just to try pencil on a different surface. It was okay, I think I'll stick with paper though.
