The Colors of Nature

Hello, hello, hello!
So glad you could stop by today and visit with me!

As I schedule this blog post, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and I'm busy packing our camper as we can move onto our seasonal site.  
The grass has finally started greening up...I've noticed there are a few perennials starting to pop up in yards and the trees are finally starting to bud!

I love spring!  I love watching the colors come alive!
I can hardly wait until my flower garden looks like our chosen picture for this weeks challenge over at {Pin}spirational Challenges.

Just look at all this color...

 

Isn't it just fabulous!

When I saw this {Pin}spiring photo, my mind quickly went to a project I had been working on for a gift for a friends daughter who was getting baptized this last Sunday!  I have just started dabbling a little more in mixed media and thought a teenage girl might like a mixed media canvas for her room.  My daughter is close friends with this young lady and was more than willing to help me pick out colors, stencils, washi tape, etc.  
We schemed and schemed...and here's what we came up with...


We based the canvas on her favorite Bible Verse...


and we paper pieced a Prima Doll stamp because wouldn't any teenage girl love this image with attitude...


...and I wanted to summarize the Bible verse in a "teen" kinda way, so I decided on a saying and cut out the lettering with my Silhouette Cameo...


My daughter and I had so much fun playing with the sprays, tissue paper, patterned papers, the texture paste and stencils and we both love how colorful the canvas turned out!
Not too shabby (we thought) for not having done much of this style of crafting.  
I do have to say that I am hooked...LOL
I had to come up with a quick craft for some of the church kiddos the other day and decided to get them into this as well....

Here's what they came up with...


(so sorry the picture isn't great quality ...only had the phone handy)
