I was contacted last week about making two custom plates for some sisters.
Unfortunately their parents had past away recently so this person wanted some custom plates with verses to help these girls out.
One plate was for Claire. She is girly and loves arts and crafts. I used my pebeo navy blue for the letters and peacock blue for embellishments around the edges (its a circle so around the circle) and used the tip of my paint brush to dot some of the frills around the edges. I was told Claire loves flowers so I put a sunny cute sunflower in the center and dotted the center with brown.
Do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
I hope she likes it.The next plate is made for her sister Jill.
My Dear Jill,
“If we live, we live to the Lord;
and if we die, we die to the Lord;
so then, whether we live or whether
we die, we are the Lord’s.”
She is less girly more serious. I wanted to use bright colors like orange and yellow for the letters. As you can see the letters are more straight and less curvy and cute like the plate for Claire.
I hope they both like their plates. Its sad to draw a plate under this circumstance. It really is. But I do think it will bring them some ‘peace’ and comfort in knowing they are NOT alone and there is a bigger purpose out their in their lives.
God bless you Claire and Jill
