I'm a Christian, married to my wonderful husband, Adrian, since 1978 (where has the time gone?). We have two children, Michael and Elizabeth who are just the best children we could have wished for, we're so blessed, and proud of them. Michael and Aisling,our daughter in law, have a daughter Bronwyne Ann. Elizabeth is married to Martyn. I use my crafting to raise funds for various charities. The charity that I'm currently sponsoring is Save The Children

So not my style!
I've been following the the blog Word Art Wednesday for a few weeks now and love the word art provided that you can use in the challenge. The blog is all about creating a project with either the word art provided or a project with another scriptural or inspirational quote. I am very limited as to who I could send cards following this theme so I made myself a journal so that I can keep my designs all in one place. I am not really a lace and ribbon or fussy style of card maker but I have seen so many gorgeous creations in this style that I thought that I would give it a try. The photos show the background as quite a vibrant pink but it is actually paler than that. As I said in the title this is just not me at all. So with all this in mind I would really love to read your comments or constructive criticism and, please, be honest as I think it's rubbishy anyway lol
See what I mean about the background?
The Bible is made using pastel oil on water card and changes colour depending on the angle that you look at it. I added the lace using texture medium that I've had for ages and never used so I'm hoping that this is the right way to use it.
I have used a few layers of different textures and embellishments
You can see the reflection of my hand and the camera in this heart lol
My printer can be quite temperamental when it comes to printing on vellum so I used a piece of pre-printed script in silver and printed the quote onto Safmat, cut around it and rubbed it down on a slant . You can just about see the edge of the Safmat in this shot but it isn't noticeable, unless you get very close, on the page. I have used a couple of rub-ons too
