A lot of times when I read a certain verse in the bible, I total see the words in graphic from, like subway style.
And you know I ended up loving this fence plank art I did a couple of years ago, so I decided to keep a little journal of these verses, so if the chance ever came again to make some of these scripture art pieces, I’d have plenty of awesome options from which to choose.
Join that with the fact that I was in Lowe’s this week and was practically drooling over the hollow care doors… Or as I’d like to call them cheap, cool, lightweight CANVASES… [$19 for this 24″ x 84″ one!!]
…So I pulled out my little journal and the “paint over” canvas and started flipping through…
I squirted some green, blue, mint, aqua, and white paint on the canvas and just blended it to cover the canvas.
I decided not to freehand this one, so I pulled out my stamps & stencils. I have a set of foam cube stamps I got on close out for a couple of dollars at JoAnn Fabric, a set of kids’ bath foam letters that have been commandeered as paint stamps, and a set of chip board office supply stencils. I thought about mixing all three of the “fonts,” but ended up deciding on just the chipboard stencils.
I found my center point with a tape measure and eyeballed the layout from there.
I went with 2 Timothy 2:22.
It’s propped on a chair leaning against the kitchen wall so I can walk by and look at it with my head tilted and my eyes squinted at it.
Of course, I wish now that I would have done this verse freehand so I could make the words different sizes… So you know this piece probably won’t make the cut in the end, and I’ll eventually paint over this canvas. Again.
Go fig! 🙂
