Word Art Wednesday

It's Wednesday again, and so. . . .it's time for another new challenge at Word Art Wednesday Challenge Blog where this week's sponsor is Fred She Said and we would REALLY LOVE to have YOU join in the fun.  Please stop by to check us out and play along.

This is the project I made using this week's free word art/scripture.  I made a wall hanging using a 7 Gypsies 8x8 board, patterned papers  by MME and October Afternoon, a Tim Holtz ticket tag, a Prima velvet stem, miscellaneous flowers, MM trims,vintage buttons, Melissa Frances resin oval, a Freckled Fawn suede leave, Tim Holtz staples, machine stitching and ultra-fine glitter.

Close Up of the free Scripture/word art from Word Art Wednesday:

I am entering this in the following challenges this week:

http://www.simonsaysstampandshow.blogspot.com/2012/06/simon-says-stamp-and-show-anything-goes.html - Simon Says Stamp and Show - Anything Goes

http://www.paperplaychallenges.blogspot.com/2012/06/12-week-23-back-to-kraft-basics.html - Paper Play Challenges - Back to Kraft Basics

http://www.pileitonchallenge.blogspot.com/2012/06/pile-it-on-24-lets-get-outdoors.html - Pile it On Challenges - Let's Get Outdoors.  I figured I'd take my card "outdoors to the garden".

Before I go, I am SO super excited about a yard sale find I made this week.  I really wanted to share this beautiful antique watering can with you that I was able to pick up at a yard sale for all of $15.  I have seen them go for $50 in antique stores, and even more on EBay.  This one is really cute, and it still has a working spout.  Many of the older watering cans are missing the spouts.  This one is a good find.  I have several in my back yard, and I one in the garden.
Thanks for stopping by today.  I really hope you will take the time to play along at Word Art Wednesday if you haven't already.  We welcome everyone, and really appreciate having new participants.  So, please help us grow our little challenge blog.  YOU are a blessing to us.

Blessings to you, my blog friends.

  5. Outstanding and beautiful card! I love all your attention to detail. It's stunning. :)

  6. Very beautiful! I really like the way you used the ribbon , will have to take some inspiration from that.

  7. Karen, your wall hanging is so beautiful!!! I love 3-d art and you tied all the elements you used together perfectly.

  9. How beautiful this will be to hang up! I love the flowers and layers and how it all shimmers!
    So cool that you have another amazing watering can! I love watering cans to and collect them when I can.

  10. FABULOUS find, Karen! And a gorgeous creation--I really enjoyed this week's scripture verse...my thoughts go a little off the beaten path, but I hope you find truth and strength from them! :)

  11. I love all the layers, textures and soft colors in your wall hanging. I love antiques, and agree that the watering can was a great buy. I have one that a friend of mine gave me, but it's missing the sprinkler. I also have one that I got for my wife that has a bendable spout - very interesting looking. Blessings!

  12. Hi Karen, your card girl is gorgeous. I love all the layers and the tall flowers are awesome! The splash of glitter is always nice to see. :o)

    Great find on the watering can! I LOVE it and wish you and I lived closer to go to yard sales or thriftin' together. I'd love to have you come over and do art together.

    I hope you're doing well. Take care.

  13. Such a gorgeous wall hanging!! Beautiful verse! ~ Blessings
