Seek Me with All Your Heart

Coffee of the Day - Texas Turtle (this is a combo of chocolate, caramel, and pecan!)

Today's project to share is one very near and dear to my heart. It's been in the works for a while and something I've been doing between DT things when I could..... A very special young lady to our family asked me to make a decoration for her dorm room door several weeks ago. something she could hang from a hook and used her favorite color - purple. I was tickled she asked me to make something to special for her, so of course I said yes right away. but I knew it had to be as precious as she is to our entire family, so I prayed & prayed for God's help in making it just right. it didn't have to please anyone but her, and when she looked at it, she just had to see His light shining from it. that's all I wanted. big request, huh?! I did want it to reflect her personality as well though, so her faith shows up as well as her love of music.

The images come from A Day for Daisies. The beautiful Bible verse is from Dee's Bugaboo Boutique Sentiments. papers are My Mind's Eye 29th Street Market. flowers are Prima, buttons are a mix of stash and vintage. trim is vintage and Prima. distress stickles were used for accents. lots of acrylic paints, glimmer mists in several colors, and touches with the spica glitter gel pen were also used. Mod Podge was my good friend through the days it took to complete this project. :)

She and Mick come home this weekend, so I will give it to her then. I sure hope she enjoys it. but more than anything, I hope she sees the love God has for her every time she opens her door.....

Jennifer, just saw your project on ADFD and came to get a closer look. This is amazing! I love everything about it. I've been looking at your beautiful word art and have saved several. Thanks so much! I hope you don't mind if I lift a few of your ideas for a project I have to do. Hugs, Sarah

Sarah said...

Oh dear, I just realized that I followed a link you gave for the word art. Sorry! I'll have to go back and give her a 'thank you'! Too much clicking, LOL.
