Burnt Scroll Plaque

Somewhere in all my blog hopping, I saw this scripture/word art on a plaque on someone's mantle and loved it.  I wish I could find it again so I could link to it.  It was darling.  If it was your blog or you know the blog I am talking about, please tell me so I can link to it.  

I whipped up a copy of it in Photoshop and added an antique looking background.  I used my printer to print it.  I rolled it up scroll style and burned the edges.  I unfolded it and then folded the corners in to look like an old scroll.

For the board, I used some bead board.  The size is 12x12.  I pained it black and distressed the edges and the middle sections to highlight them. 

I had some wheat laying around so I took 5 pieces, put 2 on one side, 3 on the other and tied them together with raffia.  

I had some wood beads my kids use for making bracelets and necklaces and tied them onto the raffia.

I tacked the print onto the center with a few dabs of hot glue so the edges could remain curled. I had to tack the hanging raffia to the sides at the top (under the wheat) so it would hang down the sides.

If I had had some jute or burlap laying around, I am sure I would have incorporated it in there somehow.  What do you think?

You are welcome to download this print, I just ask that you only use this print for personal use.  As always, I would love to see what you create with it.  

I will be linking up to any or all of these fabulous linky parties here:

  8. I absolutely adore this!! When I was in high school I was a huge dolphin fan/collector. I had a calendar from Christian Lassen that I did this with. I kept all those way until my 20's. Then I passed them on to a friend's daughter. They last forever. I even put some hard acrylic over mine to make them deminsional. Thanks for linking up!!
