Capture this look & share
the "Good News"
here are a few simple DIYs ideas
SUPPLIES: 1. pages from an old bible, book or printed paper from your local craft store 2. a calligraphy pen ~ for the above look, I used my Faber-Castell artist pen which most hobby/craft stores carry . . . or if your handwriting could use some help, try a stencil or two NEXT: 1. for "frayed-rough" edges, instead of scissors, slowly tear the edges of your paper - you can also hold the glass from the frame onto your paper & tear the paper along the glass edges 2. 1 Corinthians 13:13 ~ one of our favorite scriptures, we chose to just write one word per frame; "faith, hope, love"...

Our brass & glass "Heirloom" &
"Turn of the Century" frame collections add
warmth & old-world charm to any environment.
Capture favorite scriptures, quotes, poems,
mementos or a few lovely florals
from your garden ...
1. printed or watercolor paper, water colors, paintbrush, favorite colored markers/pens, moist tea bag (black tea - I used Earl Grey)
1. follow step #1 from above to "fray" edges of paper
2. lightly add watercolor paint with a paintbrush & gently brush your paper, let dry & repeat to get desired hue depth ... or, use a moisten tea bag & just dab gently, let dry & repeat to darken
3. when paper is thoroughly dry, write your favorite scripture, quote, poem or sayings & place in frame
