I am a new creation

no more in condemnation,
Here in the grace of God I stand.
My heart is overflowing,
My love just keeps on growing,
Here in the grace of God I stand.

Singing to day because - it is sunny! It is a good day - lots of work but going well. I know that I am God's beloved child (even if I don't always behave like it)
And it is Salt day!

This week it's my (Kim) turn and the theme I've chosen is:
Creation We see God's sovereignty in His creation each and every day, from the beauty of nature to the miracle of birth. God has lovingly and mercifully created all that we see, hear, smell, touch, and feel, to bring glory to Himself and to bless His children.

Here is what I did - you may recognise the photo!
I printed the flower on acetate - with the white bazzill behind the colours really pop! Then I used some BG Lily Kate lilac paper to go with it. "the lilies" was cut out using the robo. I was going to use the letters but really liked what was left when I took them out so used the mat instead. The journalling was done using my fave Journalling Hand font. The little passion flower was cut out and layered from photographs. Then I added a little May Arts spotty ribbon (love that stuff). Finally there is the addition of Fancy Pants lettering and two brads. Et voila.
BTW I think the "d" is straight in real life!
Enjoy the creation in your life today

Gorgeous layout. That photo is incredible, it seems to exsist just for those words.

Esther said...

Wow what lovely detail gone into this project, and what a significant flower to use! well done for making the miniature too!

Hazel said...

This is such a beautiful contribution to the creation challenge, Lythan - God has certainly granted you much talent to produce this to His glory.

Sarah said...

Lythan, that LO is just amazing, a beautiful photo & journaling. My late grandmother wrote a poem about Consider the lillies which is my favourite so I may have to dig it and create a LO based on that. Love the mini flower too, very cute!

This is lovely, it's good to be reminded that in the words of Desiderata:
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
