Word Art Wednesday:
Oh, it is wonderful to be back, crafting and sharing! Thanks to all for your patience as I took a brief respite after closing down my store. I needed that breather. My DH and I took a sweet little trip to a cabin in the woods overlooking a lake. Ahhh.... That pretty much sums up those few glorious days. But I'm ready and excited to begin 2015 with my first Word Art Wednesday post of the year. First, here's our gorgeous word art from Karen Murray. Be sure to come over to our blog for Karen L.'s wonderful devotional and inspiration galore!
I just love all the little artistic flourishes. And what a fabulous verse to wish each of you a year of prospering your soul. Isn't refreshment to the soul delicious? I do pray that each of you will have some time as we dive right in to 2015 for a brief bit of reflection, ample refreshment and total revival. 2014 was a full year of very odd health challenges for me. So I'm looking forward to a little prospering on the healthy side of life and a little less prospering around the waistline!
One unexpected blessing from closing my store is my fun resolve to dig back into my stash of designer papers and rubber stamps. For some time, I've gone almost entirely to digi images and papers so I could market my wares. Now that I'm a little freer to use from my stash, I'm actually feeling very good about that. God is amazing. He is good, so very good, all the time. I had a blast in my craft room.
I started this creation by picking my papers and recoloring the digi word art to match. I love recoloring the font either in entirety or line by line...or one word at a time. You can get totally creative with it.
I decided I liked the look of combining the rustic look of twine with the metallic gold highlights of the flower. This color combination just made me smile.
My wish...and my prayer for you!
Hope to see you over at Word Art Wednesday!

Diane, Your card is so beautiful! I love that flower. Did you make it? If so will you share how you did? I like that verse today. There are times I feel that God's word says what I feel so much better than I can even think it. I love the pretty papers you used on your card. I love coming here and seeing your creations. They always inspire me. Edwina BrownReplyDelete

Oh, Diane, what a gorgeous card, and the papers are so beautiful! Yes, I too love that flower that is just perfect for the card! And your verse, well, it's a special one. First, it starts out with "beloved," which is a wonderful reminder that we are His beloved! And I pray that you and I will have a season of rest and good health! Thanks for sharing your artwork and your heart through this wonderful Scripture, sweet friend. So glad you and DH had some time away for refreshment! Hugs!ReplyDelete
