Swan Mother Mixed Media piece


Hi friends!
I had a little request to make a mini album with a Swan theme, and well...it led to this!
I wanted to find the right image and decided that rather than search the internet for the "perfect one", I should just paint my own. After all, this is what I LOVE to do!

I used Canson Mixed Media paper, my Sennelier Watercolors,  Ranger Oxide inks, Spectrum Noir Markers, and gold acrylic paint, among other things...
I added little details as I like with texture paste, and made sure I gave it my personal touch with different design elements. This was simply for fun, and I look forward to incorporating this painting into my other projects just as I have before. I love doing this, as I get to make one-of-a kind items that you won't find anywhere else. Let's face it, swans aren't a new "thing", but this one has a lovely gaze, as her little baby looks into the water. 
My message behind this piece is simple. Tranquility is sometimes found in simplicity.
May you be inspired, and Be Blessed!
Raquel

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.

OMG Moment

So have you ever had one? You know, an OMG moment? I end that phrase with "gosh" by the way. And yes, we all have OMG moments, and for that occasion, here's a card! Interpret as you wish. I'd like to enter it into Crafty Creations Challenge #111- In Stitches, and into Scrappy Moms  Smiley Cards challenge. TFL!



Hope Banner for October Breast Cancer Awareness

I made this banner for Breast Cancer Awareness in the month of October using several Cricut cuts, embellishments, the Cuttlebug and the Stand and Salute cart for the ribbon. I'll be entering this project to Link Up for Pink.
