Hello and THANK YOU! for stopping in today~
We have had some warm weather this week and it felt good for my bones! Mmmm. This Friday morning is blue skies and warming up~ But snow is on it's way soon! Well, I will look for the beauty in it all : )
What started out to be a 'snippet roll' for my sister (a Christmas gift) - [and it is my first time creating one] - turned into this vintage style 'scripture snippet' wall hanger~ (you will have to search Pinterest to see what a real "snippet roll" is! : ) But, it looks basically like this below, but easily rolls up and often tied with a pretty bow. This one!? Won't roll up! (too much cardboard . . . *sigh*. . .)
My baby sis Jane has several favorite scripture verses and I printed a few out to add to this mixed media (paper and fabric) collage. But as I got going, I over-did the corrugated board! etc... and it won't even roll up. Oh, that's OK, lets come up with a Plan 'B'! *smile*
Distressed gold seam binding for the hanger.
I will be sharing LOTS of photo's! So be prepared if you would like to join me!
Here is the top section:
The lace (@the top) with gems, was purchased locally in a very old and eclectic fabric shop that specializes in bridal lace. Isn't it pretty!? I love the muted taupe color~ I cut a few 'snippets' of it to embellish elsewhere on the collage.
Most of the scriptures' are printed on paper from Beatrize Jennings shoppe: Etsy https://www.etsy.com/shop/iralamijashop
and mounted on kraft and white corrugated board. There are 'snippets' of laces, and I blanket-stitched a heart made from natural batting. XO
There is a strip of gold seam binding, ruffled, and stitched from top to bottom onto the background linen.
Here is the center section:
The scripture sentiment is embellished with a bit of the taupe lace. I made the flower (looks darker than it is) from some K&Company Ancestry Collection paper; which has been discontinued for several years : ( It is my favorite paper ever! and was what I first started out with when I began making cards 6 years ago.
There is a white twill tape bow behind the flower, and the buttons are mother-of-pearl. Jane will especially like these because they came from our grandmothers jar! I fussy-cut some lace flowers from a damaged piece of table runner, and the chipboard butterfly was a gift from my friend > .Melissa.
The 3 sweet images I used on this were freebies! from the beautiful and generous > Kerryanne at Shabby Art Boutique. I made a second heart; blanket-stitched with gold embroidery floss, and added a flower snippet from the taupe lace.
Here is the bottom section:
Isn't that little girl the sweetest image!?! It reminded me of Jane when she was just a little peanut! (There she is in the photo below, - - from a mini album I made for her a few years ago: )And the scripture above speaks a testimony to Jane's beautiful life~
I have included several photo's and close-ups of the collage below!
Thank you so much!!! For taking time to visit today~ Blessings, Karen
