All you have to do is comment on our blog HERE and on ALL the designer blogs during the hop. Make sure you let us know what your FAVORITE set is too. We're interested to know what you think!
Here is the complete list of the Everyday Blog Hop:
Have fun and get inspired!!!I selected one particular stamp set because it sang to my heart...Yes, IT REALLY SANG! You see, I have this thing with scriptural sentiments... They literally connect musically and I hear songs that are perfect matches...Check out what I mean!
This set is called Chain Breaker. When you see this set and read the sentiments, does it sing to you? Do you hear music? I do...This is what I hear...
An exact representation of this song, right?
So I listen...and then... This is what my muse hits me with:
a soundwave....of bliss... Can you see it?
I used the soundwave panel (after creating the stippled wave, I used some circle diecut stencil and rubbed some light blue and shimmery gold PanPastel over them) as a backdrop for the sentiment that "got me". Yes, this sentiment "There is POWER in the name of JESUS"...YES indeed!
Notice that little "Play" button? It's from the Jesus is my Jam set that was released last month. I also highlighted the sentiment just to give a bit of zip...
And if that isn't enough...
I connect these sentiments...and the song to scripture...and I found a perfect connection in Psalm 107:10-15. So I brought out those chains and broke 'em up!
After applying white gesso to my panel, I stamped the sentiment and the chains with clear pigment ink then embossed with silver embossing powder. I colored the chain with my gray Tombow marker and then rubbed gold PanPastel over the page. The PanPastel "stuck" to the ink and then I rubbed some blue on it too. Reading the scripture, HEART echoed through and through so I incorporated those too by doodling a few and coloring with Tombow Marker. I also added a bit of sparkle, 'cuz you know how I feel about that! ;)
My reflections and thoughts are always scribbled in on my pages...They're usually covered up under layers and layers of paint but this time, there are a few peeks here and there...
Alrighty. Love this set? I bet you do! I know it's such a fab set and I can't wait to share more with it.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find inspiration in everything you see today! Please head on over to Helen's blog for her take on a fun new set!
