BHBR| Cherished Mercy

Finally here to catch up on my latest book review from Bethany House, and also to wrap up my reviews on the trilogy Heart of the Frontier!

p.s I am soon going on vacation so I will probably show back up with more vacation posts like the last time my family went on vacation! But this time I have my DSLR so both Crystal Ice Studio and Lucillian Photography will probably be spammed with an inordinate amount of photos. 😆

Latest Drawings {long delayed post}

Hellloooooo…

I have been procrastinating this post bc 1) I didn’t want to take pictures of my drawings because I was too lazy and 2) I was too lazy to clean all my fair entries up and rescue the drawings from the heap.  😆

But now I am going to do the post.

What She Made| Fat Bombs

Category~Inspiration         Post~Fat Bombs

 

 

Hello, my friends.

Today I wish to share something yummy with you. Or rather, healthy. Healthier…more than yummy. But I like it. Yummy for me.

I have been making…fat bombs. The ones I make have coconut oil as their base oil and coconut oil is very good for you. 😆

The Big Change…

Hellllooooo!

It’s been a few days…right? Well, here I am! Over the past few months I have been making various changes to my blog. I have been attempting to organize and get things straight.

But when it comes to this blog…one thing has never changed. What’s that?

It is simply…my blog’s name! The reason for that is I am rather attached to my blog name. The Misty Mountain has always been my title and I always have liked it.

But as I make several announcements (which will change my blog slowly) over the next few days…or weeks…there will be a change. If not a few.

The first change is the name. It makes me sad to wave goodbye to The Misty Mountain, as it’s been my title for four years (this blog’s whole life 😀 ). But it’s time.

So without further ado…my new blog name!

Surprise! And you wondered what happened to Crystal Ice Studio 😉 . So that is change #1.

Keep an eye out for the next changes.

Welcome to #3. of Art Swirls!

Today we will be doing Hot Glue Canvas Painting. 

YOU WILL NEED

  • a canvas of any size.
  • Acrylic paints.
  • a hot glue gun +extra glue sticks.
  • A semi-steady hand +good handwriting, or letter stencils.

THE INSPIRATION

 

 

I found the below lovely image on Pinterest, and decided to put my own spin on things. I will probably do one similar to the picture eventually.

fair project

 

INSTRUCTIONS

STEP ONE~ FIRST DETERMINE A DESIGN AND SKETCH IT LIGHTLY ON YOUR CANVAS WITH A PENCIL.

IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THE ‘SHEEP’, I USED THIS MAGNET AS A STENCIL.

STEP TWO~ NEXT, BEGIN TRACING OVER YOUR PENCIL MARKS WITH THE GLUE GUN. WATCH THE CONSISTENCY OF THE HOT GLUE AND TRY TO BE CONSISTENT IN THE AMOUNT OF GLUE ON THE CANVAS.

GET RID OF THE ‘SPIDER STRING’S’ AS YOU GO!

STEP THREE~ NOW CHOOSE YOUR PAINT COLORS AND BEGIN PUTTING THEM ON IN THE ORDER YOU WANT THEM. THE DESIGN IS UP TO YOU. I MADE THE SHEEP PLAIN OLD WHITE.

STEP FOUR~ STRENGTHEN AND DEEPEN THE COATS OF PAINT AS YOU GO UNTIL SATISFIED WITH YOUR WORK. MAKE SURE THAT THE PAINT IS EVEN. ALSO MAKE SURE ALL THE HOT GLUE IS PAINTED OVER EVENLY. AND YOU’RE DONE!

BHBR| The Chapel Car Bride

Howdy! (next time I’ll say ‘salutations’ 🙂 )

Here’s the newest one from Bethany House, and also my book review for April. Basically, if I’m quick at the draw…I’ll have one book from them a month. If I don’t want to review any of the options they have (which I’ve done before)…then I don’t 😀 .
