~Fruit of the Spirit~

I just loved making this piece. I got the idea from Dawn at Feathered Nest. Hers is more beautiful of course. But I wanted one. So I knew I would just have to make my own. This scripture is important to me.
I bought this cross off of etsy. It came from the Ukraine. I just loved the look of it. I put the pearl in the center of it.

A little close-up view. This piece is more aged looking in person. My wonderful camera didn't pick it up.

I used a canvas board as the base. Copied a couple pages out of an old garden book. Picked out a branch that I thought would hold all attributes we should possess. I wanted to Modge Podge the background but knew it would smear since I didn't use the original paper out of the book. I would have liked that better, I think. But I would have had to make this piece a lot smaller then. Then I sewed the branch onto the canvas. Then tied all the tags I made onto the branches.
Thanks for stopping in friends. I hope your weekend is a blessed one.
