" Be Thankful" Strength, Purity, Righteousness and Flexibility

"Be Thankful" Colossians 2 v 6
"....continue to live your lives in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the Faith you were taught and overflowing with Thankfulness."
The Birch Tree represents a strength in our journey, the white of the bark our sanctification process, the branches allowing flexibility to "go where the wind goes" and bring change of direction, the roots are our roots, growing deep amongst the many layers of the years and experiences of our lives, Gold and Silver, the refining process and the glory of the anointing that follows that process.
Starting the layering process, scraped paint background, many layers of stenciled patterns representing the many layers of our lives.
Textured branches reaching out, the forming of leaves.
Added Gold and Silver foil, the scattering and falling of the anointing.
The finished artwork of layers, depth, colours and textures of our life.

"Set Free" A Mixed Media Tutorial

"Set Free" by Tracey White
Commissioned Prophetic Art Canvas
I was asked to paint a representation of freedom, with soft colours, this is the result...................
Now this is how this mixed media canvas was created...
Prepare the background by scraping Gesso randomly over canvas, dry, then choose soft pastel tones and apply paint onto canvas using a make up sponge.
Collage Tim Holtz music Tissue Wrap  onto the canvas with Modge Podge or Gel Medium.
Using a Hand Carved Indian Block Stamp, load the stamp in Titanium White and add impressions to the outer edges of canvas.
Using the birdcage stencil from Barleycorn Stencils, mix Grey paint with your Texture paste and apply with a palette knife. Stencil Girl Swallow stencil is used in background. Branch stencil is from Crafters Workshop. Using Decoart Crackle paste apply this medium onto dove stencil with palette knife, allow to dry to reveal cracks. When all this is dry, use Kaisercraft Ink Sprays to mist into background, using a fine water sprayer to "move" the colours and allow drippage.
Adding painted detail, extra branches in Olive Green, Adding Titanium White paint splatters using a fan brush. Add script stamp randomly over canvas using Black Stazon Ink.
Finish project by collaging the word paper strips onto canvas with Modge Podge,  ( printed using a Laser printer) then with a needle tip bottle filled with Titanium White, loosely outline the word strips. Add smaller accent stencil using texture paste ie, feathers, small birds, into the background to fill any plain areas.
Hope these steps helps to reveal the process of the many layers and how each one represents different areas in our lives, and also different art techniques for you to learn and experiment with.
So, Beautify your Soul ! Create some art today!

Fresh from the Art Studio
Prophetic Art Canvas
Tracey White

I Love how this canvas started off with stencils and spray paint,
 Background then muted, almost hidden?
 Then the flowers emerging along with the Scripture.
 Transformation as you create, keeping the outcome fluid as the Lord directs.
