Decay

This past weekend, I worked on a tag using most of the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014 techniques, and felt my original design fit these week's theme perfectly.  I was inspired by Psalm 51:10, "Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me."  Various elements in my design represent different parts in the Bible verse's meaning:
  • The black gear represents the decay of our hearts
  • The green background represents rebirth
  • The shiny foil hearts represent the pure heart
  • The light bulb represents God
  • The "R" type charm stands for renew
  • The pocket watches in the embossed background and the gears represent the steadfast soul
  • The number series ending in 7 is a reference to its association with completion and perfection


I want to thank everyone who took the time to leave a comment on my tag last week.  Your comments mean a lot to me and truly encourage me to continue in my artistic journey.  Blessings!
