Word Art Wednesday #28

The challenge this week at Word Art Wednesday #28 is 2 Timothy 1:7  The word art is provided as a freebie but it is not necessary to use it.  Any scriptural or inspirational quote can be used to make any kind of project.  I have chosen to create a small journal to house my challenge entries and it's lovely to look back at earlier pages.

At first, or even second, glance at this page and you'd think that I had just stuck a piece of patterned paper in my journal and then added the ribbons and the quote.  Wrong!!  I had a few pieces of scrap paper in my box from this paper set (can't remember the make of the paper) and I have trimmed and pieced together the page.  On some I cut around the scalloped edge and on some I used a circle punch to create depth, being able to see the colour underneath.  The grossgrain ribbon is covering a gap where I didn't have enough paper and the sentiment panel is covering a gap where the paper strips weren't long enough so I had to cut them in two and glue them at the edge of the page!  It took ages to get all the strips in the right order

I inked the sentiment in the same colours as the paper and finished off with a ribbon bow

Materials used

Free word art
Nestabilities Labels #8 dies
Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Ribbons from HOTP Earth tones
Papers from scrap stash
Glue Dot to attach the bow
