Be Still

Hello Readers,

For today I am playing along with The Color Throwdown, Virginia's View Challenge and The Paper Players. Oh, was this card fun to make! I'll let you be the judge; here is my card for today, enjoy!

Collage of colors inspired by The Color Throwdown.
Using the masking technique to stamp the flowers around the sentiment block.
Each block is colored differently from the block adject to it.
And again using the masking technique around the border 
Detail of watercoloring.
Leaving the centers of the flower white gives it a sense of openness.

Challenges Entered:


The children's program at our church is called Children in Worship. This program is a different way to worship and learn. Instead of just hearing stories they interact with stories in the form of props and play. Personal worship is also very important and of course singing. One hymn they sing is 'Be Still and Know that I am God'. I think I might have to follow their lead and try to be still more often. We shall see what becomes of it.

Well that should do it for me! I want to thank you all for your visit and reading my stories. So fun to share my life's moments with all of you. So until next time, take care and happy crafting!

All the best,
