Just Rite Week! Flowers and Faith

The My Mind's Eye paper I used is definately my favorite from the new collection. I knew I wanted to pair it with the intense teal paper and when I saw the quote, I knew it was perfect. The quote is spelled out with the Times New Roman Font and placed in the Harmony Rectangle wood handle. I like mixing the font sizes. I think with more words I would have gone another size smaller on some words. The word Faith was accented with an ochre colored ink.

The flowers are chipboard that were painted with acrylic paint. I mixed the colors to work with the paper. I wasn't really thrilled with how blah they were looking. I tried polka dots, but that was the wrong way to go. After thinking about it for a while, I sponged darker shades of ink over all the chipboard pieces and that finally gave them the depth I was wanting to achieve.

Check out what Laurie, Cindy, and Michelle are wowing you with today! thanks for stopping by!

Love that bold dp as the backdrop to your fabulously created sentiment Kim! I have such a hard time with bold, vibrant colors and you make it look so easy...like it should be common sense to put it together like that? I don't have that particular gift! This is inspiring!! WOW!
