Blessed - SALT

This week on Salt Hazel has set the theme of the Beatitudes, please have a look at her post HERE for inspiration, it would be lovely if you could join in and share what God moves you to create on this theme.

This is my first large altered canvas. I've been wanting to do one for a long time. The colour scheme has been inspired by the hallway of the friends I will give this to (Tasha if you're reading this DON'T show it to John). Their colour scheme is black and white, I've used a hint of the aqua, which is her favourite colour.

The photo's where taken last year by Andrew King, a dear friend and a fabulous photographer, he has the fantastic ability to capture the moment.

I started by glueing the lace, paper and verses torn from a Bible (one of Tom's old ones with pages missing) onto the canvas, then painting with acrylics, pretty much squirting direct onto canvas then painting it in. The flowers were inspired by Donna Salazar's tutorial HERE and the paper roses HERE.

The lettering for 'Blessed' was stamped then punched out, once they were suck on with 3D foam, I coated them in Anna Griffin's clear glaze.
