Type of item: Home Decor

What was your inspiration?
Bible verse for my daughter to hang on her entry wall. Her married name is Joy, so... :)
What are you most proud of?
This was my first project in this Craftsy course, and my first handwork in more than 50 years! (yikes!!) The creativity just flowed as I worked along, completely free of care and planning -- just go with it!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
JUST START! Since there are no rules, you can be totally free, and just enjoy the process.
EDIT: ...oh wait... there is JUST ONE rule... I didn't really understand before I started, that although stretcher bars come in A LOT of sizes, you might not be able to find the EXACT size you need. I ended up adding a border to come out to the size of the stretchers I could buy. I like the finished work MUCH better than the unfinished, however, so I suppose it's a rule I'm glad I didn't understand! So, you see?? There really ARE no rules!
