And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose. . Romans 8:28


For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 / KJV
Jesus is our soon coming King
James 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh."

FBD Digi Release - August - WAVES OF FUN

Good Morning!
Can you believe it is time for another fun digi release
I am the owner, and I still can't believe it :)
This summer has flown by, so I decided to create several new mermaid digital stamps
to hopefully capture one last glimpse of the magic it brings.

For my cards, I chose to create with 

First up is MARISOL
*one name meaning: loneliness

I LOVE her! Don't you?
I am so critical of myself when drawing / sketching things.
She was one of those that just HAPPENED.
The pencil drew her and I watched her be created.
Coloring my own images is a whole different experience.
I think that my mind gets away from the fact that I actually drew her, 
then focuses on bringing the image (Marisol in this instance)
to life. I really enjoyed coloring her, adding the touches of glitter, 
seashells, and gold glass beads. 

{Here is a closer look of the glass beads}

The background paper was also fun to create. 
I got out my kids old crayola watercolor and went to town!
I was flinging paint and splattering it and having so much fun.
THEN I came back into the kitchen to wash my hands and found
that I had splattered paint up the entire wall, all over the cabinets and
UNDER the cabinets as well. OOPS!! Thankfully it wiped right up :)
While the paint was still wet, I added salt to create the distressed look, let it 
dry, then added spots of glitter and some gold frantage. 

Now it is time to meet
*name meaning: Peace, serenity 

I kept in the same color families when shading this image.
I chose a charcoal grey for the background to give it a dreamier, sort of
dusky feel. The paper was created the same was as the first. 
The sentiment is a rub on.  

Here is a photo of the sparkle and glass beads.
