Good morning, friends. I am incredibly excited to be a Guest Designer for Word Art Wednesday. When Karen Letchworth asked me if I would like to design for the month of November, I said YES ... in a heart beat!
Word Art Wednesday is a very popular challenge blog where Faith and the Scripture take centre stage. The talented ladies of Design Team do an amazing job and I am amazed at the lovely projects they produce every fortnight. The Scriptural narrative of the chosen Verse is truly inspiring and I encourage you to read it before posting your projects.
This challenge focuses on Psalm 95: 2 and 3. Since we are fast approaching Thanksgiving, I wanted to use seasonal colours to bring out the Joy in giving Thanks and Praise to God. The floral elements are from Altenew's Beautiful Day and I used fall colours of yellows, orange and brown. I added Wink of Stella Clear glitter to the flowers and leaves. To finish - little sequins and Daffodil Liquid Pearls to frame the word art.
Here's a closer look. I stamped the smaller floral sprigs first, coloured them with Copics and then layered the fussy cut big blooms and leaves over them. You will also notice that I cut around at the top left and bottom right of the verse and flipped them over to lie above the blooms. I got a tighter design this way without having to shrink the word art... and it is about the Verse after all.
