Psalm 46:5

What started out as an experiment and goofing around, turned into a class and a canvas for a friend!

This 6 x 6 canvas started as the combination of a several products just to see what they would do.  After a bit of time, the idea crystalized in my mind and became a beginners canvas class I offered in my home.
Here are a few of the gals with their finished work:
I love how each put their own spin on the idea and made something completely unique!  I know some people like the comfort of copying what they see.  And, truly, that's fine.  For me, canvas art is such a personal thing...it's exciting to me to see when others make it personal too.

These canvas' bear images from one of my favorite companies--Unity Stamp Co.  I have no affiliation with the company, but do most of my canvas art (at least 90%) with their images and backgrounds.  Used for this project:  Chick-a-dee and Me, Empowered WordsBeautiful Wish/Layers of Life, Hollyhocks, and Angie Girl: Dream With Your Heart.

When I promoted and taught the class, my canvas looked like this:
No verse.  It felt undone.  But, I knew it would come to me--it always comes to me.  I thought it was my canvas, but as soon as it was done, I knew it wasn't mine to keep.

"God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved"   Psalm 46:5

I chose the verse for me, but it turns out, it was for her {I hope you are reading this}

TTFN, Jane

Please note that the verse reference is incorrect.  The cited verse, although seen on the canvas as Proverbs, is actually from the book of Psalms :)  oops!
