Glory Art no 20 - Truth for Living

It is over 2 weeks since my last post and since I last did anything creative.  How can that be?!  Life sometimes overtakes us and all plans go up the spout.  Never mind, yesterday I was able to take up my paints and crafty supplies and have some fun.  I wanted to do the latest Glory Art challenge so I decided to start off with a masterboard which also happens to be the current challenge at PaperArtsy

I brayered Cheescake, Candy Floss and Mermaid chalk acrylics:

and added some stencilling:

Since I was going to make different things I cut the masterboard up at this stage before adding anything else.  Here are the four base cards for the Glory Art cut from half the masterboard.

The topic for the Glory Art was Truth for Living.  Patter asked us whether God's truth was our plumb line for our behaviour and daily living.  Patter wrote, "His Word is truth and changes lives. We need to study His word so we know the truth, we believe the truth, we live by the truth, and are changed by the truth. But each person alone must start by first accepting that truth."  She included the following great quote:  "We are either in the process of resisting God's truth or in the process of being shaped and moulded by His truth."  Charles Stanley.   I love that, I know I want to live like this, not resisting but living by God's truth, allowing Him to change me and make me more like Jesus.

I finished off the cards with a little stamping and then adding texture paste through a gorgeous PaperArtsy stencil:

These have been such fun to make all through the year:

Never mind the wonky  cutting!

They will be mounted on black card and made into a devotional book:

I still had half the masterboard to use, so I added a little more stencilling and then cut up so I could make a card and a bookmark.  I repeat stamped a PaperArtsty flower on each:

I love making bookmarks, they make such really lovely simple gifts:
