Traffic Light – Scripture Art
“God cares for you, so turn all your worries over to him.”
Working on projects for the Vintage Lynchburg Spring Market 2016. Last year, I made this I Peter 5:7 three panel sign with the popular phrase, “Let It Go.”I decided to make another one for the Spring Market in April. This time, I painted it in the form of a traffic light.I wanted to make it out of wood (and will do it sometime soon), but I had a 12″x 24″ canvas on hand and could not wait to get started.
I coated it with black acrylic paint and then added a few shades of yellow until I landed on a tone I liked (the shade below was way too bright).An old Tupperware lid was the perfect size for creating the circles to represent the lights.After painting the circles red, yellow and green, I freehanded the verse in pencil.I went over it with black acrylic paint.Since pencil lines erase, I did not worry about being exact when painting over them. Plus, I planned on sanding the words with fine grit sandpaper to give them a faded look. I painted the “Let” “It” “Go” and added a brighter green to the “Go” (hint-hint…you got the green light to cast your cares on Jesus!!!) 🙂What do you think? Here’s to a lighter load!!!
