Shaving Cream Technique with YouTube video-Mixed media Canvas

Hello everyone!
I'm participating in the Creative Art Collaboration-a monthly event where we post YouTube video's with a specific hashtag and a common theme.  When you type in the hashtag-everyone's art shows up that in our group. And there are hundreds of artist!!  Doing multiple types of art.  You've got to CHECK-IT-OUT!!
  This month's hashtag is #thinkpinkart
It's in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness.
Needless to say-pink needs to be in the piece.
My piece today doesn't have a ton of pink-I was more inspired by the picture I saw that I wanted to recreate showing God's hand with another person's hand. I loved it.

 Here's the canvas I created.

 You can see my YouTube video here:

I used Word Art Wednesday Scripture by Karen Murray. So I'm entering their weekly challenge with this piece.  You can find them -Word Art Wednesday. Every week they have FREE scripture that is artfully done by Karen Murray.  Check them out!!

Thanks for stopping by-if you have any questions or comments-please leave them here & I'll answer you.

DecoArt Mixed Media Camaro Card

I have a mixed media card today.
The order is for a 17 year old boyfriend that loves Camaro's. 
Here's what I came up with.
I mixed some DecoArts Metallic Lustre to DecoArt Texture paste and used it thru a great brick stencil made by Retta's Stencils.
 I saw this cool design on pinterest!!  I had to try it.  I found the picture of the Camaro on pinterest too. It's a handy little place!  I used dimensional s to pop the car up in the front. Once it was in place, I rubbed some of the Shimmer Black Metallic Lustre Wax randomly over the front of the card.
 Here's the inside. Pretty cool huh?
