Strawberry Fields Forever!


I couldn't resist! Here is my entry for the Layers of Color Challenge: Berries! This is a door knob hanger. I have used Dover images, pretty paper, a transparency, velvet ribbon, antique lace and lace medallion, buttons and even a couple berry pics- too cute. I used a stamp for the letter 's' as well. I also made this 3-D and added a bible verse to the back from:

Psalm 67:5-7

May the peoples praise you, O God; may all the peoples praise you.
6 Then the land will yield its harvest, and God, our God, will bless us.
7 God will bless us, and all the ends of the earth will fear him
.

What a gorgeous piece - I love the added bits of lace too - thanks for visiting my blog and your lovely words - its so rewarding to know that something I've done has triggered such a special memory for you. I bet those raspberries were the best you'd ever tasted!

The colors are wonderful, the imagery is perfect, and the textures and trims are luscious!! And of course, the Scripture brings it alive and graces it with truth and light!!

Love it, can you tell?

Always refreshing to come here - keep up the creating my friend!! (love your heart/fabric piece too, btw...glorious, rich colors!!)
