I started with this photo:
Along with displaying "my" photos in my home I wanted to display God's Word. This Scripture passage came to mind:
Love the Lord your God with all your heart
and with all your soul and with all your strength.
These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts.
Impress them on your children.
Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road,
when you lie down and when you get up.
Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.
Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates.
Deuteronomy 6: 5-8
I, again, went to work in Photoshop Elements. I added a text box, chose my font, and added Proverbs 24:3-4 to our family photo. I flattened the image and saved it for the web. I then uploaded it to Canvas People (which I would highly recommend) and ordered an 18X24 canvas print.
Since receiving my canvas, I have been working on my Photo Wall Display (ideas can be found HERE). I am not finished, but I thought I would share some photos of the work in progress.
Please remember it is a work in progress!!

After designing my canvas I came across Katie Lloyd's photography blog. Each week she hosts Scripture and a Snapshot, which has been a wonderful way to use my hobby...photography...to glorify God. Connecting a photo I have taken with a verse from God's Word has helped re-ignite my passion for Scripture. Unfortunately, I have spent months at a time running from God's Word versus running to God's Word. Katie's challenge, along with the other participants, has helped me crave the Word of God, again.
If you have any interest in ordering a canvas, like I said above, I would highly recommend using Canvas People. Currently, they are offer 25% off canvas plus free shipping to all of my readers. Click HERE or the button below:
