Lily and The Lotus and Ike's World Art 'THE FALLEN' and a dedication to DAVE JILIANO, AND HIS fAMILY AND tEAM

Today I wanted to share some beautiful images from Ike's World Art.

The Fallen at IWC
I am also dedicating this journal "showcase" to Dave and his family and staff at

I spent many a hour watching this fabulous group of people help others and I love their  caring and professional nature to everyone.I often think in listening to some of the video's Dave you have become haunted yourself.But I have nothing but admiration for all of you and when I was coloring these up I kept thinking of you guys and wanted to make it to inspire you guys to keep on doing what you are doing.

I hope you are enjoying Ike's Blog Hop today is actually Wednesday I am pre posting so I must wait.
This is a standard journal collage page. I first gessoed with Dina Wakley's white gesso. Let it dry and then I added "Artist Loft " Brilliant Blue.
I was thinking about the scripture which I cannot remember where and it's totality of angels having a perspective place and for some reason I envisioned a grid of sort.Oh hey I thought of my new stencil from Stencil Girl, which just came a few weeks ago in my June kit.
I used black acrylic in this square stencil on top of the blue and it made this pattern which resembled a grid of sorts.
I used the second small stencil in the kit with a purple to create a space for the images.
Now my angels are on the grid so to speak and I used Dina Wakley gel medium to finish putting this spread together.
This scripture has been one of my favorites to help me through out my life to accept what I cannot understand.It seemed so  appropriate for my spread.
I hope you like this.
Please enjoy Ike's beautiful images.
and stop by Dave Juliano's face book page and see what he is about.

Thank you for stopping in.

see you on Ike's world Blog hop
