Word Art Wednesday #4

My Linky Tools expired the other day. I apologize for this. I do have the four names and emails of this weeks entries.  I now have the Inlinkz added and look forward to seeing your art and visiting with you.

Hi there, if I don't get a chance to tell you tomorrow, Happy Thanksgiving! I am sure you're as productive as I am today in getting goodies ready for tomorrow. This will be short but sweet! I look forward to seeing your art throughout the week. :o) If you aren't familiar with how the challenge works, please read the Challenge Guidelines here or at the top of the page. Thanks!
We have a winner this week!! Random.org chose #2 which is:
Ann Margaret from: Ann Margaret's Visions
Yay! Congratulations! I will send Sue from Heart and Soul Rubber Stamp Co. your email and she will contact you about your special gift. :o)

This week's sponsor is Lindsay from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. I am on Lindsay's Design Team and she has given me the privilege of picking out the gift for one special lady next week and I have it all picked out and ready to send!
Ok, now onto this week's challenge. I chose this scripture for this week:
Through Him, therefore, let us constantly and at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of lips that thankfully acknowledge, confess and glorify His name.
Hebrews 13:15

Not just on Thanksgiving should we be thankful but every single day, searching and looking for the things He's doing in our lives. Look for the little things, sometimes it might be a hug from your child when you least expect it or the clearing of traffic during rush hour or someone sharing a 50% off coupon with you when you don't have a lot of money to begin with. Yes, I believe those are little blessings from the Lord. It's easy to praise Him with the really big things but if we search for the little things, the little things we sometimes take for granted and say thank you Lord, it's amazing to see how truly blessed we really are each and every day.

Here's my art project for this week:

I glued on my papers, painted over with some Robin's Egg blue, stamped and watered down some orange paint to let it flow down. The lady is an image transfer using packing tape. I added some paper and paste with blue paint in it to give it a surrounded effect, added some beads to it for extra color and texture. I Added some burnt umber to the sides, walnut ink spritzed a paper doily, added my scripture to the top of a frame that was ink stained.

Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your art!
