This week I actually did two challenges again for Design Dollies... the first was to use the colors brown and gold. I made this canvas for my husband for the Norwegian Father's Day.... I took the picture at an angle so that I could try and capture the gold on it without loosing the picture/text on the canvas. It seemed that either the camera just picked up the gold or just picked up the picture/text. Basically when I finished making it I used gold Perfectly Pearls and put gold shimmer all over. In the picture you can glance it in the corner. I used a gold plane and the feathers to represent my husband and to represent my daughter flowers and charm (drawing by her). A couple of months ago I had my daughter draw on a piece of shrink a dink and then I cut out shapes and shrank them to make charms that I could use on my layouts. My daughter will be 3 in March and more than anything she loves to draw.
Sometimes I dont feel like such a great mom and wife. I let me husband and my daughter yet I totally believe what this verse says " And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect in weakness." (2 Corinthians 12:9) God is my strength and when I fall He is there to brush me off and encourage me to keep on keeping on! This project reminds me of how blessed I am to have a wonderful husband that not only is there for me but it is a WONDERFUL father. When I fail God has given me a husband that encourages me and when Lars is down I try to be there for him. Karianne really is blessed to have him as her father.
