Word Art Wednesday #32

When I sat down to create this page in my journal, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  But, as with the best plans of mice and men, my plan didn't work out.  I had everything lined up ready and started by stamping an image directly onto the page and the centre of the image hadn't printed!  I'll have to stop trying to work directly onto the page if I'm stamping.  I've ended up doing something completely different even though I could have done my idea on paper and sticking it into the journal over the mis-print.

Word Art Wednesday always supply a free scriptural or inspirational quote which you are free to download and use in any project that you wish.  To enter the challenge there is no need to use the word art provided as long as the entry is positive and uplifting.  This week's word art is Philippians 4:6

I am also entering it into the following challenges

Papertake Weekly challenge which is to use a 3-2-1 recipe

Allsorts Challenge #159  to use paper piecing or piercing

For The Papertake Weekly recipe I used 3 paper pieced flowers, 2 shades of green and one piece of word art

I stamped all the flowers onto the green backing paper and then one each of the pink, blue and lilac which I cut out and then placed over the original stamped images.  I then used ProMarkers to colour the ruffled part of the flower and the flower centres

I then added the word art which I had printed on Safmat film

Materials used

My Word Art journal
Word art from Word Art Wednesday
Papers from HOTP
Ruffled Flower stamp by Stampendous!
Memento ink pad
Safmat Film by Letraset
