I have taken the plunge and decided to do a mixed media art course online. This is the first art piece, which is actually the warm-up, where there was an introduction to colors and the color wheel. It’s just meant to be an intuitive piece and the words I came up with as my message to this piece are written within the hearts, “My heart is hidden away with you. You rejoice over me with singing.” Part of this comes from the Bible verse, “He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will renew you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” I love this verse. It makes me think about how God’s love for me is not far off and based on religious rituals, but He feels for me as an Earthly parent would feel for their young child.

Loved it! There are so many layers to the piece and to the message. Music is indeed, in your heart. It was wonderful that you put notes in the background heart, putting the music in perspective, with music carrying the message, but not THE message.
Ohhhhh, thanks so much Rob. I’m so glad you liked this and could appreciate it. I know that you would with the music and all.
By the way, have any of my comments been going into your spam folder? I had another blogger friend tell me that my comments were ending up in her spam folder?
Have a great week Rob.
Hi Staci! No, I have been seeing more spam of late, but not from you. I have had that happen to people who have commented plenty of times, and then suddenly, they’re either in spam, or awaiting moderation. Must be the WordPress gremlins!
Hmmmm, makes one wonder eh.
So very Lovely Staci! 🙂
Hahaha. Nothing like your beautiful artwork. Yours is amazing. One day, bit by bit, I’ll get there, right.
Your heart shines through this art Staci! Little by little you’ll get there I know! 🙂
Awwww, thanks Sibella. You’re so sweet.
It’s very good and I hope the course goes well 🙂
Awww, thanks Richard. I’m such a sucker for eye candy, and seeing all the mixed media around the web has got me somewhat obsessed. I’ve never been a huge artist (like fine artist), but I just can’t keep myself from trying this out.
As long as you enjoy it that’s all that matters 🙂
This is a gorgeous start and the words and message are beautiful Staci
Enjoy your course it will be a lot of fun too 😊❤️❤️❤️
Ohhhhh May, thank you so much. Gorgeous? Wow. Really so sweet of you. I’m sure I’ll really enjoy it. Actually, I just paid for another online course too. I better chill out a bit or my hubby will have a fit. Hahahahaha.
Hugs and love sweetie.
Staci…this is so beautiful!! I think you are amazing…so talented and creative! Thanks for sharing with us! ❤ ❤
Oh Lorrie, you always know how to lift me up. I’m so encouraged by your kind and sweet words. I thought it was about time to start investing just a little more, now that I’m more settled.
Thanks again, my sweet friend.
Hugs and love to you.
And back to you dear Staci!! 🙂 ♡♡
One of my favorite scriptures for sure. Can you imagine the concerts in heaven…a hush comes across the Angels and someone says. “The Lord is going to sing.” Gives me goosebumps.
Isn’t it a great verse. So intimate and free.
Oh wow, I’m sure when He sings it’s truly heavenly.
yay and congrats on taking the plunge and creating such a beautiful first piece ❤
Hahaha. Thanks Neha. It’s about time eh. I’ve only been going on about this passion for mixed-media for about eight months (or longer) now. I figured now that I’m more settled it was about time to invest a bit more.
🙂 So glad you liked this first piece.
haha well i think when it is time time is with us ❤
A heart that sings 🎶 thank you for sharing 🙂
Ohhhh, I love the music notes there Pete. Thank you so much.
Warm up? I’m impressed. This is wonderful, the blended colors, the stars, the music paper and, best of all, your quote. Thanks for sharing with us! 🙂
Ohhhh, thank you so much. Your words have truly encouraged me today.
Oh, and you’re more than welcome (chuckle)
Hi Staci, so happy for you, doing an art course is always a blessing. Your card and poem are lovely, if could see you in your poem, music and stars, they describe perfectly you!
Awwww, really? They describe me? Thank you so much. Actually yes, I was putting myself in the third person.
Thanks again Elizabeth for saying such sweet things.
Beautiful result, Stacilys! Sometimes a course can inspire us to create something even more beautiful. Are you going to print it to be out on your wall? It is really lovely!
Thank you so much Indah. I’m not sure if I will print this one out. I’m thinking I may print out other ones in the future for the wall in my little creativity corner. However, I will probably print this out to put in my arts portfolio.
Thanks again Indah. I’m so glad you like this.
You should! This image is perfect for your arts portfolio 🙂
Awww, thanks Indah.
Staci, I nominated you for a challenge 🙂
Oh great. I’ll go check it out. Thanks Sibella.
A beautiful artwork with such a positive message. God is always watching us over.
Oh yes, It’s true. God is always watching over us.
Thank you so much for the encouragement Alok.
This is wonderful and beautiful! You have so much talent- I absolutely adore this piece. 💖
Awwww, thank you so much Soldiergirl. I’m so glad you like this piece. And I’m so happy that you shared this with me. I am truly encouraged.
Oh I am so glad that you are! You are an exceptional gift to us readers :))
Awwwww, thank you so much S. You are so kind. You are also a gift.
Woke up, and in between my morning coffee just had to visit this blog..after reading this, I’m glad I did…
Oops, I don’t know how I missed this comment. I’m so sorry it’s taken me so long to respond.
Wow, I’m honoured that you ‘just had to visit’. Thank you so much for sharing this and for appreciating my efforts.
I really like this Staci!! I also make Meme cards using my drawings and Photoshop to insert text and more glitter (I love glitter).
I also wanted to thank you for visiting my blog and supporting my work! I will try to come more often to comment on your posts!! It’s so nice to meet people like you!
E Feliz Dia dos Namorados pra você também!! 😀
Ahahahaha. Gotta love a blogger that writes to me in Portuguese. Thank you so much. I’m sure your cards are amazing. I’m doing a mixed-media course right now by willowing.com. Have you heard of her? I really like her art.
Feliz dia para você também querida.
Staci, how exciting, an art course on line. Your artwork is terrific, and your poem is just beautiful. Please enjoy what’s left of the weekend.
Take good care,
Ohhhh, I’m so sorry it’s taken me so long to respond. Busy, busy, busy. Anyhow, yes. I’m loving the whole mixed-media thing. Thank you so much for appreciating my efforts and your kind words Pepperanne.
This is a lovely way to keep our creative energy engaged for creativity within us to grow and keep expanding. It needs that subtle trigger and it needs constant practice, these online art classes provides the much needed impetus when we are down and defeated in purpose. We constantly need that push and that the little thrust to keep us going and moving in the right direction…
This piece of work is simply wonderful, the colours and the choice of words perfectly harmonized with each other to produce the magical affect…once again I am reiterating the words, “music in heart and stars in eye, love so immense to reach the sky”, what power and what a lovely flow in the wording and the meaning…profoundness in its simplicity.
Looking forward to more such joyous art and poem from your classes…
cheers to the beauty of art.
Ohhhh Nihar, I don’t know how I missed responding to this. Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment and for appreciating my artsy efforts.
I love how you said ‘profoundness in its simplicity’. That’s exactly what I want to do here on my blog. I want to share my creations in a simple, yet thought provoking way. I’m so glad you mentioned that.
I have been truly encouraged by your kind words Nihar. And yes, cheers to the beauty of art.
Yay! This means lots of mixed media pieces. I’m gonna be a happy camper 😃 that is one of my favorite Scriptures. You are so creative, Staci.
😀 Thank you Kirsten. Yes, much more mixed media coming. I love it.
Oh yes, I love that verse too.
