I checked out this weeks Word Art Wednesday and found one of my favorite scriptures, Psalm 51:10.  Right away I wanted to get to work on something for it - which is a great thing because as you know I have not been creating much at all in recent weeks.

Normally when I create for Word Art Wednesday I make a card but today I felt more inspired to work in my art journal.  This week's theme was Hearts/Anything Goes.  The plan was to use this scripture:
and to use hearts.

I start my page by misting with 3 shades of pink/purple Adirondack color washes.  Then, I took a watered down gesso mixture and pulled the color across the page.  When that was dry I took out 2 of my favorite Crafters Workshop templates and Snow Cap and Silver Adirondack Paint Daubers.  I wrote the word Create across the upper left and Renew along the bottom right with an embossing pen and used some Violet embossing foil.  I mounted the scripture to some pink patterned paper and then onto a light pink dotted paper which I ran through my Sizzix Embossing Folder with linked hearts.  I took some Raspberry Distress Ink and blended over the hearts.  I attached this in the center of the page.  Then I took out a large pink heart doily.  I cut the center out of it and adhered it to my page using heavy gel matte medium.

Here is my creation:

Thanks for dropping by.  Hopefully I will have something new for you over the weekend!
