Leave to your God to order and provide...in every change, He, faithful will remain...

Hi Yall! I have some projects to share with you today...these are some of my favorites in a long time! Verve just released some awesome sets, and these are some samples of the new Plain Jane scripture stamps. Hope you like them!

The first sample is for Proverbs 3:5. I love love love this scripture!
I found this awesome wood plaque at Michael's for next to nothing (under $2 I think!). I painted it with off-white acrylic paint, then added some Basic Grey Sultry paper to the top panel. After sanding the edges, I softly painted the edges of the plaque with brown acrylic paint. Once the paint dried, I painted 3 layers of off-white paint to the center of the plaque, over the patterned paper. After it was dry, I stamped the scripture in Brilliance Pearlized Chocolate. The buttons from Stampin' Up matched perfectly, so I tied them with Linen DMC Floss and adhered them to the plaque. Super easy!

The next plaque was painted and sanded, in addition to covering the top with Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper.
After stamping Philippians 4:13, I added the trim (from My Mind's Eye) and a Foof-la-la button tied with linen DMC thread. This will be awesome hanging in my office!

The last project I created was a canvas with the Psalm 46:10 stamp. I created a mini canvas to hang on the wall:
First I painted the canvas a soft blue, then stamped the Aged Sheet Music Scrapblock around the edges in acrylic paint. Then I added a center distressed panel of paint and adhered the sentiment and matte (cut out with rectangle nestabilities) to the center. I wrapped the edges with 5/8" Brown Satin ribbon, then hung it with the same ribbon and hodgepodge hardware. I love the way this one turned out!

Julee has really outdone herself with this release...as always. You can check out the specials and deals HERE. Have a great night!
