New Product!

I'm really excited to offer the, ever popular, seam binding in my Etsy shop! To make it even more special, I've taken a wooden spool, stained it and adhered a French / Paris sticker to the top and bottom, then added the hang tag. Then, when your seam binding is gone, you'll have the spool to use for other things...even for a little decoration :)

This listing is for 5 yards each of 'Cream' and 'Soft Pink'. You can even purchase it here, or follow the link to my Etsy shop.

New Altered Tag

I have a new category in my Etsy shop, titled, God is Good and have been creating a lot of altered art with this theme in mind. The background for this tag is a photo that I took while on vacation in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. In fact, I have another post about it where I showed these photos. 

This photo turned out so beautiful, and even with my cheap digital camera :) We were so close to the deer, I snapped this as we were driving down the dirt road that leads through Cade's Cove. The deer peeking around the tree is a real gem! It had such a serene feel about it that I thought I would make it even more celestial :) So I created more brightness coming down the left, top, and through to the center of the photo to illustrate God's light. I used Photoshop and if you're unfamiliar with how to do this, you use the 'dodge' tool. Then I brightened up the outer edges to make the forestry really pop, by using the 'burn' tool. 

The Bible verse seemed fitting, to me, as the picture depicts nature at it's finest. Then, I thought how nice it would be to show even more of God's beautiful creations and make it into a real, Garden of Eden. 

To create this, I brought in some graphics that were bright and vivid. I, of course, found all these lovely graphics from The Graphics Fairy. I just love the pink rose that Karen shared with us a few weeks ago and have already used it several times in my art work. Since I had all this brightness around the sides and bottom, the top left seemed too light behind the text, so, I brought in a crown (from The Graphics Fairy) and made it in grayscale and put it behind the text...this would be Jesus' crown, of course.

This Bible verse is referring to when Jesus comes back again. But I like to let it, also, remind me that even when we are praying for healing, whether it be a healing for our body, relationships, business or anything else we are praying for, Jesus even makes THOSE things new again. The God that created every single cell in our body can restore it to wholeness again, if it is weak. The God that places such importance on family can heal your marriage and make it new again. And if you're in financial difficulty, He can restore what the enemy has taken away. All you have to do is ask! 

I hope this has helped someone, today!

...Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.  Phillippians 4:8

Blessings to you, on this Memorial Day!!
