Psalm 121

Psalm 121 holds a special place in my heart. It has brought me a lot of comfort this year. Me and the kids have worked on memorizing it. We thought it would be fun to each make a canvas to hang in our rooms to remind us of the verses and their importance. So today I am sharing our canvases with you. :)

Austin's:


Austin said he made a concert scene, and imagined the verses as a song. Apparently it was a big production with fire and fireworks. :)



Hayden's:

Hayden choose to go a bit more simple and created some hills and a sun.


And now we come to mine:

I fancied myself a painter.
Then I fancied myself a paper crafter.
Then I fancied myself a sewer. (I'd say seamstress but that makes me think of sewing clothes...not sure what the real technical term would be for one who sews).
And I guess, in a way, I fancied myself an artist. :)

Here are some close up's:




The paper I used came from Crate Paper and My Mind's Eye. And there are no real techniques or anything on the background...I just had fun painting it.

So that was our little fun project for the weekend. Last night we actually made some magnets, but I will share those with you soon. :)

Have an AWESOME day!!!
