HAPPY BIRTHDAY {Art by Mi Ran Showcase Blog}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

Hope all of you are keeping well and having loads of creative fun. 

I am here today with another creation for Art by Mi Ran's SHOWCASE BLOG, where the theme for August is WARM COLOURS.

I have used this beautiful girl, ARUM, created by the talented Mi Ran. She looks so serene amongst the lillies.
Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her
awesome digi creations, here. You can purchase ARUM here.

The image has been coloured with Copics and dry chalks. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC} . The design papers, brads and buttons are from my stash. The flourishes have been stamped with Chiswick acrylic stamps.

I would like to venture over to the following challenges with this:

  42. How sweet is this, Desire! Lovely colors and wonderful lay-out. We are blessed that you joined our Challenge last week at Word Art Wednesday. Make sure you drop by again this week to link your family-friendly projects with us. Leaving you with God's Word in 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 and it says, "For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. "

    God bless always,
    JO ANN
