|My Soul Follows Hard After Thee |
1. I used a selection of previously painted watercolor paper, some cut and some torn as you can see. The torn piece near the bottom is mounted on black card stock, which is "framed" by some shiny textured silver-colored corners.
2. The text was added next, using shiny automotive tape. I used a ballpoint pen to incise each word, and then wiped each with thinned black acrylic paint, wiping it off the surface before it dried. That way the paint stayed in the words, making them stand out, although that's hard to tell because of my sub-par picture!
3. I mounted the watercolor paper background onto matte black mat-board and added antique bobbin spindles at the top and bottom. I used two-part epoxy resin to make sure they were secure.

The effect looks like metal tags. I like it.
The spindles are sheer genius. They make it look like a beautiful scroll.
It's lovely, Cyndi. I can see that even though the photo doesn't do it justice.
