The Greatest Artist

The Greatest Artist
By: Udiah

God is the greatest artist
To whom no one can compare,
Streaking sunsets very beautiful,
Painting rainbows in the air.

Brushing green the hillside scene,
Blotting blue the sky above,
Splashing flowers 'cross the ground beneath,
Shading white clouds with His glove.

Of the wonders God has made
There is none that is so fair
As the smile He paints upon your face
When you realize He's there.

This page took me several hours.

1) cut the 4x6 photo in the largest circle possible using the Coluzzle
2) Use a compass to draw a larger circle
3) Drew the flower within the circle to determine six equidistant points on the circle.
4) Use the Bazzil in Stitchz large circle and put it along the line of the flower petals and punched holes for the stitching.
5) Also use it and a pencil to mark spots for the gems.
6) Cut a larger circle with the coluzzle and marked a line along which to write the poem in the colors of the rainbow, (except for the purple and orange because I didn't have a pen the right size for those colors)
7) Use the large colouzze circle to cut scraps of cardstock the colors of the rainbow and place those along the inner circle using glossy accents to attach them to each other before attaching to the page.
8) Use the large Coluzzle to cut a white circle from cardstock that's bigger than the picture but still shows the photo.
9) Use the Bazzil in Stitchz large circle template to punch holes in the white cardstock and use thread to stitch the rainbow.
10) Use sharpies to color clear gems the colors I don't have the colors for.
11) Use tiny drops of glossy accents to attach the gems
