We All Need A Little Faith, Hope & Love

Hello there!
Welcome to INSPIRE.
Thank you for stopping by today.

Today I am sharing one of my latest
personal projects,
some inspirational word art.
In today's world, we all can use 
some faith, hope & love.


The core piece in this project was the pre-made
lacquered word faith.
Only using minimal items to create this, gesso, gel medium, glue, a couple of embellishments,
made this a relatively easy project.


I raided my hubbies scrap wood
stash, and found a perfect piece
to mount the word to.

The first thing I did, was lightly sand the base, 
followed by a coat of white gesso
to cover it.
I chose to do a light sanding when the gesso had dried
 to give a bit of distress look.

Using gel medium,
I added delicately printed 
rose tissue paper to the front of 
the word FAITH, 
in a random sort of pattern.


I then used mini stencils & 
distress ink, to ad the words Hope & Love to the front of the base.

While snagging scrap wood,I snagged a bottle 
of my hubbies wood glue,
to glue "faith" to the "base".


To complete my design, I added
a couple of mini paper roses 
(in shades of pink course).

A delicate shelf or desk sitter,
to inspire, to encourage 
in these times in which we live.


Hope you like this project.
