I was having one of those "not so great days" when I remembered the lesson of this verse. You know the kind of day I'm talking about - when the slightest task is too much to even think about, and it seems as if the sun will never shine again.

"But He said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest upon me.' " 2 Corinthians 12: 8-10
I hand painted the daisies and birds with craft acrylic paints. The birdhouse is a scrap of fabric and the roof is paper. I sprayed the background with Dylusions spray inks. The zentangle-inspired doodles were hand drawn with a Sakura pigma micron pen. I also used Sakura Soufle gel pens. I cut the lanterns at the top from an old magazine. The large butterfly is a sticker, and the smaller ones were cut from patterned oragami paper.
This is the digital background I created in PS CS5. I printed it out and collaged over it. You are welcome to download it for personal use only.
Here's another one for your personal use.
Happy art-making! We'll meet again soon!
Until next time,
