A Scripture Wall Hanging

Thanks for stopping by. I wanted to show you this wall hanging I made for Christian Paper Crafts Fun on Friday Challenge from last week. (Notice how I'm always a week or so behind! lol) Fortunately, there is no time limit for the challenges at CPC, so that's great for me. This challenge is technically CPC-FOF53. Candance did the challenge cause Cindy is CRAZY BUSY! Candance's challenge was to alter something - anything. Great for me because I have had this unfinished wood frame that I think I got from AC Moore sitting around the house for a bit. I've been wanting to do something with it, so I did! The frame itself measures 5 1/2" x 7 1/2". I sanded it and painted it with a coat of clear gesso. I used a very thin coat, because I wanted this to look very vintage and not look or feel very finished (as far as the frame goes). I then painted it with Making Memories Scrapbooking Paint in "Strawberries and Creme". That dried very quickly, and I took a fan brush and painted on Delta "Ivory" acrylic paint. The fan brush allows the paint to go on in a very haphazhard type look and makes it easy to blend it together - giving a peeled paint look, I HOPE. lol  After than had dried, I stamped butterflies and flowers from Fancy Pants clear stamps with Staz On "Cherry Pink" ink. Took Basic Grey pp from their Porcelain collection and cut out a piece to fit inside the frame and adhered it using the "Ultimate Glue". I adhered the pink ribbon from American Crafts with 3D Dots, as well as Prima flowers. The lovely adhesive lace at the top is from Jolee's Boutique. Finally I added the peel-off scripture from Creative Imaginations. I love this verse from Luke! Oh yes, one more thing. Fortunately for me, the holes were already punched in the frame, and it actually had a rope-like cord to hang by. I got rid of that and added the darker pink piece of American Crafts ribbon, tying knots in the front so it would hang correctly. I happen to love the way this turned out! I'm thinking of making some more and going crazy with different pp and colors and verses! Wow! Anyway, I hope you like this too. Thanks for stopping by. Stop by Christian Paper Crafts too. Their link is in my sidebar, as well as the link to Cindy's blog and her AMAZING blog candy!!!! Have to get there before Friday to see what you need to do to get that great prize!  Have a blessed day!
