Joy is effervescent hope

 Have you ever had a 'word of the year'?  I liked the idea but found it hard coming up with one word.  In the end, I settled on this little phrase...

Joy is effervescent hope.  It came from a bible reading via UCB.  I wanted to go a little deeper so added the definitions and synonyms...

Without getting too preachy - this is a craft blog after all - I like that having that hope in the Lord, knowing that he is always working for your best, can bring joy; joy that just spills over out of you that you cannot control.  I want that in my life!

Back to the craft... I grabbed a 12" embroidery hoop and some paper and rub ons from like for ever's Woodland kit.

I added a few sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps to add some twinkle.

To hang it I added some 3mm grosgrain and my favourite mint lace from Crafty Ribbons.

I added the rub on butterflies to vellum and fussy cut around them.  This gave them lots of dimension and delicacy especially when only adhering down the centre of their body.

I so pleased with how this turned out and hope to focus on these words all year.

Here is the process video of how it all came together:

Thanks for stopping by.
