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:
