A Portrait of Ideal Womanhood Proverbs 31

Hey everyone,

This project has a great deal of meaning and inspiration behind it.  First, it is a birthday present for a very dear friend of mine, Kelly. 

Second, the scripture on the back of this wallhanging describes a woman with outstanding abilities, "The Wife Of Noble Character" Proverbs 31.  The woman described in this scripture is an excellent wife and mother.  She is also a manufacturer, importer, manager, realtor, farmer, seamstress, upholsterer, and merchant.  Her attractiveness comes entirely from her character.

I used the Tim Holtz Sizzix Movers & Shapers Baroque die cut as the base.  Each panel is covered with Anna Griffin Paper from the Flora Collection.

The letters are Anna Griffin foil embossed alphabet and measure about 3 inches.  All letters, embellishments, and cut outs were mounted with dimentionals to add depth to the overall piece. 

Each panel was inked with black ink to help make the color of each panel stand out.  The panels were bound with 1 1/4" black satin ribbon.

The back of each panel has a portion of Proverbs 31 scripture, distressed with Vintage Photo and black ink to give the look of aged paper.  The edges were rolled up to appear to be pealing back.

I used Anna Griffin rubber stamps from the Flora Collection on the back of these panels.  Each stamp is reflective of what is presented on the front of the panel.  

I just love this part:

Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.  "Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all."  Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

Hope you enjoyed seeing this wallhanging and leave me a comment if you have time.  You can see the video presentation of this project on my YouTube channel at

Have a blessed day,
