Guest Post by Lisa West - Faithbooking!

Hello Divas,
Luisa here...  Today am excited to share another Guest Post from Lisa West.  This is a Faithbooking post and is amazing.
You can see more creations from Lisa at her blog: Letters and Lace!!!
Thanks Lisa for being these wonderful posts...

Let's move onto Lisa's post!

Psalms 139: 13-16 is the opening page (8x8) for my first Faithbook. The theme, You Are Who You are For a Reason, continues throughout this book with every page.  The last blog post (in Feb.) for 

Faithbooking with the CSD 's shows the inspiration and some ideas for completing an 8x8 book carrying this same theme.

My inspiration for these awesome paper flowers came from Lisa at What A Beautiful Mess. I honestly have been referring to her flowers and flourishes for a while because they are so AWESOME! These pink flowers were stamped, cut out, and sprayed with water to crinkle up. After drying I inked and painted with Glossy Accents which also holds the jewels in the center. Metallic gold edges the flowers.

The little gold metal flowers are ornament tops flattened with a jewel placed in the center. I then handcut a few leafy vines from patterned paper to surround the yellow glittered flourishes.

This finishes my first complete Faithbook. I hope it was an inspiration to you.

Hugs and Blessings,

Lisa West!!!

Oh Lisa, this is gorgeous! Those flowers are really beautiful and I'm sure they are even more impressive in person with the glossy accents. Using the ornament tops flattened out is such a creative idea... LOVE it!
