In His Hand

Adri Munhoz, one of my first blogging friends, featured her first sketch in her new challenge blog and invited me to participate.  As you may have figured, art is a way of life for me, so I was eager to take the challenge.  The flowers and colors in the sketch reminded me of this week's Crazy Amigo Challenge - Tree, so I decided to combine them.  Since tree's are part of our Lord's creation, I just had to tie it into Word Art Wednesday as well.  I love it when creative ideas flow smoothly.

Once again, I decided to make an entry in my art journal.  It's a great place for me to save ideas for paintings and/or scan them later to incorporate into card designs.  I used various scraps of collaged and hand painted papers that I had done in the past for the 3 background blocks.  The green one with the skeletal leaf stands for our green earth and trees; the yellow one with the hawk feather stands for air and animal life; and the blue one cut into waves stands for water.  I used a strip of cork adhesive backed paper in place of the ribbon tie.  The eye of God in the hand shape cutout is the one I drew in my iPhone's SpinArt app.  You may recall a smaller print of it in my Father post last weekend.  Finally, I hand lettered "In His hand," with a gold Sharpie opaque paint marker and Copic inking pens.

For the life of every living thing is
in His hand,
and the breath of every human being.
Job 12:10

I guess since I'm taking a family trip to Big Bend National Park, here in Texas, nature is in my mind.  Regardless, I thank God for his gift of creativity.  I'd love to hear what you think and/or have you follow my blog.  My readers words are always reassuring and a blessing.  May my words and work bring blessings to you.


Hi Arnoldo, I love your card and your art, thanks for participate in our challenge, good look!
Hugs Lisa

I love how each panel represents something, awesome thinking behind the creativity! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)
I used to live in Houston, Arnoldo, and Big Bend Nat'l Park sounds mighty familiar. I went to high school at Elsik High School in Alief. Do you know where that is?

Small world, eh? Enjoy your trip to the park!

Oh, and thanks for visiting my blog recently; it made my day!
