Third Hanging Project…

So here’s the framed wall hanging I did for some of my friends in the Pay-It-Forward project I took on last year.  This is one of my favorites, mostly because it used the colors I like the best.  I really love lavenders and all its shades.  This is also one of the favorite colors for my friend, too.

I just love the Wee Stamps image and all of the Cheery Lynn Designs dies that I’ve used.  The glitter that’s on the doily, behind the image was a happy accident.  I sprayed what I thought was the back of the die cut to adhere it to my paper, instead I had sprayed the front.  So the only thing I could think to do was to pour glitter over it and heat seal it.  And yeah!  It worked.  All of the gems by Recollections were added to have lots of bling, too, since I know my friend loves bling.

The flourish worked perfectly for the flowers and bow I made with my Bow-Easy. Stitching, faux or real seems to add so much to a project, so I finished it off with that.

My friend really enjoys this scripture, so it’s even more personal to her.  I’m hoping it will be enjoyed for years to come.

I’m entering this in the following challenges:
