Inspirational wall decor // for Jaimie's birthdayI designed an encouraging piece of framed art for my girlfriend's birthday using a few of her favorite things: green, butterflies, some flowers from a photo of mine, and a passage from the Bible that is special to us - Psalm 103.
Praise the LORD, O my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits-
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
I drew it all up in Photoshop, including the 3D elements that I was going to add to give it some depth. I found a frame with double matting that I thought would work well and designed around that.
Here is what I was going for, in Photoshop:

And here are some photos of what I ended up with:

I was really pleased with how it turned out, and she loved it - which was the best part!
