SALT challenge #2

Wooohoo I'm pleased to annunce the 2nd challenge from this exciting group and fab group of ladies.

I was thinking along the lines of how my life is FULL in CHRIST.

This week it's Casey's to set the challenge :)

I have chosen the theme "Life to the Full." This theme comes from the verse John 10:10b where Jesus says that He has come so we may have life and have it to the full (or in abundance)!

So, we would really love to see your take on this challenge of what
"Life to the full- in Christ" means for you.
You can do it whatever format you like e.g. A Layout, card, beyond the page, canvas etc.

Do have a look at the SALT blog to see the other creations

That it is because of Jesus that my life is complete. I was searching for a verse to express this and came across a verse I was given just after my baptism. I have often pondered on it and what it means and how it should affect my life.

The flowers have been inspired by the work of Carole Janson and others who create 3D paper flowers. The verse is printed on acetate, the frame lightly inked and then the flowers, leaves and dragonflies stuck on with sticky pads or Modge Podge glue. The dragonflies have little crystals on them and coloured with a clear gel pen to give them a shine.



Ingredients: PP by Basic Grey, flowers by Prima, Leaf and stamen punches by Leone Em, Dragonfly punches by Woodware and Xcut.
