My friend Kyra is the hostess this week for the MIX-ability challenge on SCS. The challenge from what she shared with me is to focus on a meaningful sentiment for a personal relationship. To go beyond superficial and make a meaningful card for that person. I thought about it and decided to make a card for my friend Becky. She has been spending time getting the children's Christmas program ready for Sunday's service. I wanted to tell her "Thank you" for all the hard work and effort she has put into this. I also thought that to be meaningful doesn't require a lot of words. One word can portray a lot of meaning when it is heartfelt.
I started with this monotype that I made the other day. I liked the circles and the gold sparkles.
My friend Tiffany painted an angel in her hymnal the other day. I thought I would practice painting an angel myself. So I painted the angel using acrylic paint. I added some white to her hair with a gel pen. I also drew the halo with a gel pen. Then I went over all of the angels dress, wings and halo with Nuvo Aqua Shimmer. I then handlettered "Thanks". The angel panel has a white panel behind it that I also added Aqua shimmer too. It is so hard to photograph. but in really life it is so shiny.
