August Challenge

Love is ALL you need and My First EVER Lettering Challenge! I’ve had this on my heart lately and actually wanted to do a lettering challenge for July. Things got in the way to say the least. LIFE is so unpredictable! Haha! My fifth grand-child was born this month. So happy! Another hurdle this past month was that I’m finally getting treatment for a horrible health issue I’ve had for a number of years. But let’s get back on track.

This challenge was inspired by the need for a change of focus in my life and I’m sure everyone else could benefit from this. “Life” has been escalating all around us. But are we just supposed to soak everything in and let it bring us down? Do we get angry and swept up with the raging tide that seems to carry a lot of people with it? No. We need to focus on our roots and see what we are really made of. What really matters? Do we have to have control over everything? Do we have to be pulled in by negative forces? No.

What really matters is this. A change of focus. A change of mindset. Once we realize who we are, it’s easy. We are all made in God’s image. And who is God? He is number one, LOVE. Love is all you need. I’ve taken a lot of concepts from the Bible and positive living.

So here’s the deal. If you complete this challenge (all 31 days) I have a freebie for you. It is an 8X10 frame which you can use to for lettering or calligraphing your own phrase, add a picture, use it as a scrap book page, whatever you want, as long as it is for personal use only. So it is important that you use the hashtags #OWDchallenge and #oilnwinechallenge and  tag me with @oilnwine in Instagram so I can see it!! I can’t wait to see what you you will create!

August Freebie

I used a watercolor rose design for the 8X10 frame. I also have my bullet journal with a different watercolor rose. You can buy it at my Etsy shop. It’s a downloadable file.
