Say A Little Prayer

Hello I hope your week is not too wet and windy as it is here in London!!! I am just sharing a project I was assigned by a friend from church. She asked if I could make a prayer box for one of our church community projects. So I kindly obliged and here it is... xxx

I used a box that once contained trainers. I decided to use some Basic Grey papers which I used modge podge to stick on and then I painted around and over the papers with a bright orange acrylic paint. Next I got some verses from Bible Gateway about Prayer flipped them into reverse so I could make a transfer and then printed them  out. I cut them to size and then added some modge podge. I stuck to my box and let dry. I then dipped my thumb into water and rubbed over the top of the paper and gradually rubbed it away until it  left the text.

I made some paper flowers using My Craft Studio Paper Flower expert. I added them to the box in little clusters.

I am entering the following challenges with my Prayer Box
Just Keep Creating  - Anything Goes
sisterhood of crafters - May Flowers
Thanks for stopping by today I really appreciate your time and comments. I hope you are inspired too. Hugs Pascale

such a great idea, you have done a great job with this prayer box, certainly better than the dull box we have in church :)

Thanks so much for sharing your card at Anything goes, Just keep on creating. I hope you will continue to play along, sorry it has taken me so long to leave a comment, I have been away on holidays.
