A must see documentary of an artist’s experience with faith, civil rights, and reconciliation. #ColorsofCharacterMIN #MomentumInfluencerNetwork #sponsored
I just finished watching “Colors of Character” for this review. Before watching, I knew it was about an artist. I felt perfect for this opportunity and could relate. Going into watching it, I assumed I would learn something more about art-making from a fellow creative. I was so wrong. “Colors of Character” was so much more.
Learning about civil rights and more about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was so interesting and unexpected. I finished the documentary just as my teenage daughter walked into the house. I asked if she had time to watch and I watched it again with her. The documentary was a series of wows that continued to build throughout the viewing. We discussed the documentary and felt there were four different discussion points: 1. Steve Skipper’s life 2. Religion 3. Skipper’s Paintings and 4. Civil Rights. One takeaway was Skipper’s statement that he credited the success of the Civil Rights Movement to all the different ethnicities that supported the cause. Without them, he felt the movement would have failed.
Steve Skipper is one of the most prolific artists in the realms of sports, civil-rights, equestrian, portraiture, and Christian artwork. Skipper has shattered barriers of race and education in the art world. His works are on permanent display in some of the most hallowed halls in America, including the Pro Football Hall of Fame, College Football Hall of Fame, International Sports Halls of Fame, the Lyndon B Johnson Presidential Library and Museum, and has been honored with unveilings at Chelsea Piers in NYC, the MGM Grand and Monte Carlo in Las Vegas, and Millennium Gate Museum in Atlanta.
With no formal training, Skipper openly gives credit to Jesus Christ for his gifts and for every opportunity that he has been given. As an ex-gang member and drug addict, Skipper was transformed into an internationally respected artist.

Learn two techniques for using mica powders on polymer clay.
Making jewelry and working with polymer clay are passions of mine. I know I don’t share a lot of it here. I think I get caught up in creating and I forget to take pictures and video the process. But today I am sharing two different ways I use mica powder on polymer clay for jewelry making. One is a stamping technique and the other is a using a stencil.
These little stamped signs are great to add to your stash. I didn’t make mine into stickers but that would be a great addition. I like to have handmade signs on the backs of handmade cards. The circle is 1″ so it isn’t too large or overpowering,
1″ paper punch
Le Pen – red
zazzle – Crystal
After the ink dried, I added Zazzle on top of the colored in heart and it really made the red color and shape stand out from the black ink around it.

Video Hop with Taylormadecards4U
The Mrs. Darcy digital kit is from Taylormadecards4u. I received this kit in order to participate in the video hop they are sponsoring. After printing it out and seeing the folded envelop/pocket design it immediately made me think about inserting or hiding messages. That idea took on a variety of different hidden visual messages. These hidden messages are found somewhat by chance.

Make bunny napkin rings for you Easter table to add color and a bit of fun. #free #SVG
Do you need last-minute decor for your Easter table? These bunny napkin rings might be just what you need. They are quick and easy to make and will add color to your table. You can craft them by cutting them out on your personal cutting machine or print out the template and cut them out with a pair of scissors. If you are short on time, get the kids involved and let them help cut out the shapes. They will be so proud of their accomplishment and their addition to the Easter table.
There are two different bunny napkin rings in the files. The first one is in the photograph above. If you want the bunny head turned 90 degrees to align with the length of the napkin, that is included too.
This adorable little bunny is very easy to make. You can make one or many (you know bunnies tend to duplicate) in a variety of sizes. They would make cute holiday decor or a great addition to a special Easter basket.
felt – pink and white
hot glue gun
I used two pens to make the small pom, two of my fingers for the medium pom and four fingers for the large pom. Wrap yarn around the pens about 20 times and cut the yarn end. Using another piece of yarn, run it between the two pens and around the yarn. Tie a tight knot, removing the pens if you need to get the knot really tight. Cut the looped yarn and trim the pom to a nice circular shape. Do the same for the next two poms.
The parts needed to make the bunny: the three poms, white felt cut for the ears and pink felt cut for the inside of the ears. One bead.
Using the hot glue, glue the pink felt to the white felt.
Glue the three poms together to form the bunny body.
Using hot glue, pinch the ears at the bottom with a small bit of glue. Then attach them to the bunny body. Also, glue the bead in place for the nose.
