Amazing Love

This time I have tried to tie 2 challenges into one. ‘Monday nights with Tracy’ and ‘Sunday with Sandee’..
This really had a life of its own it seemed.. I started out with making the mug… I love this mug that I got for Christmas from my Granddaughter… The character on the front just makes me smile.. Frazzled and smiling and hair a mess…. ( what that says about Grand mothers I am not sure lol). Anyway the caption on the inside of the cup says “The bonds we have are everlasting”.
I did the background with a baby wipe and a few colors which I just played with until I got something I liked.
I tore a page from an old hymnal I have and tore the heart out.. Was sort of lob-sided but maybe they are the best ones..??? Gave it a wash of the same paint as the mug. I tried the charcoal pencil thing but I only have a HB2 and it really did not work…. so because it was sort of all one color I added scrolls to the heart and then added some red. Still sort of blah so I got out my chalks and used the dark blue to do the border and then added some to heart… I will set it by spraying on some Krylon.
The most amazing thing was when I really looked at the music I saw the Hymn that I tore out was ‘Amazing Love’…. Love when that happens….
I do enjoy reading your comments and may you be encouraged today.
