Psalm 34:18

The Lord is close to the Bro-ken-heart-ed.  He rescues those who are crushed in the spirit.  Psalm 34:18.  The scripture is my inspiration for this mixed media design. The heart is a corrugated board painted with swirls of white acrylic paint and edged in Memento black ink.  After using gesso over the canvas sheet, I laid down a doily and music. I applied some molding paste over the TCW stencil and sprayed Recollection mist.  Gotta add a little bling, right?

Closeup of the scripture

 Close up of a few causes of brokenness on the bottom right.  I wanted to play on the syllables of Brokenhearted by cutting them with edge scissors and placing them in various directions.  The heart has a pop dot along with the word Disconsolate.  The words are raised on chipboard.  I printed the words on white paper and sprayed with mists.  Fiber was used to loop the words unto a heart metal tied down with musical ribbon.

Here's a close up of the pop up heart raised up.  All of the chip board hearts raised on the white corrugated heart were nude.  I added acrylic paint, mist, glitter, ink and bling.  My colors are yellow, teal and purple although they look different on the photos.  My apologies for that.

The song is 'Love lifted me'.  It's from our church program.  I LOVE to recycle them.  Thank God for His LOVE that lifts us up in spite of the adversities and sins in our lives.
Showing a few Prima items used.  Prima Finnabair mechanical vintage trinket and Prima flowers, cottage blossom orchid. The yellow, teal and purple buds were white.  They were sprayed with mist used on the design.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you are inspired from the scripture, song or something in the design.  Make it a great day in the Lord!
