Praise the Lord - Mixed Media

I've been on a roll and I'm happy to report that I've completed another canvas!  I had this one going at the same time as the last one so I couldn't resist doing more flowers.  The colors and the hearts were inspired by Valentines.

This is a 10x10 canvas with a mixture of acrylic paints, gauche, molding paste, inks and paper.

I started out by creating the hearts with paint and molding paste.  I used a palette knife to give them lots of texture.  Next I began doodling the flowers around them.

I added book text for stems and stenciled around the canvas.  To add a little more visual interest, I hand wrote "Praise the Lord with all your Heart" around some of the flowers.  I love incorporating positive messages in my artwork and what could be better than praising the Lord.

All of the edges are painted black for contrast.  Thanks so much for joining me today!!  I'll be up on the Paper Wings Productions blog tomorrow for Tutorial Tuesday, hope you'll join me.

Have a BEAUTIFUL day, blessings!!!
