Mixed Media Art Journal | Shine Your Light

Graciellie Design

Hello everyone… This week we were learning about being salt and light at our church youth meetings. Though we might have read the message from Matthew 5:13-16 many times, read it one more time will give us more insight to what Jesus say about who we are, our identity, and our roles in community.

My mixed media art journal today is inspired by God’s word in the Gospel of Matthew 5:14-16, “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”

First, I added some watercolor paint on my Mixed Media page with watercolor paints, and I dried it with craft heater.

Next step, I added some paint splatters on the page with Heidi Swap Color Shine Spray and Marabu Art Spray. Dried it again with craft heater.

I used flat brush to add some of the brush strokes on the page with Deco Foil Liquid Adhesive, let it sit to dry in couple of minutes, and I added some of the Deco Foil Transfer Sheet Teal on it.

For the image and sentiment, I use the new digital stamps from Graciellie Design called Dreamy Girls Digital Stamp Kit and the little flower on her, is a little peek of a new digital kit releasing it soon!!!

I printed the girl image on regular copy paper, and printed the sentiments on mixed media paper 90 lbs. Next, I colored the girl with Primacolors Premium Pencils and Colorless Pencil. After that I fussy cut it with micro-tips scissors. I added it on the page with Dina Wakely Gel Medium.

I fussy cut the word Shine withmicro-tips scissors, and then I trimmed the words, Your & Light, with paper trimmer into 2 pieces. I added them on the page with gel medium. Next, I highlighted and added shades on them with Faber Castell Stamper’s Big Brush Pens.

I finished the page by adding more shadow around the page with the Stabilo Woody Black Pencil and smudged it with my finger.

Thank you for stopping by today… Don’t hide your light, let it shines bright wherever you go…
