I may have mentioned it before, or not, I don’t really remember – but I’m a Christian. You can take that however you’d like, but for me it means I believe in God, and I believe Jesus Christ is my savor. It does not mean I’m perfect, hah far from it. I swear too much, though I try not to. I’m stubborn. I don’t always go to church when I should. So please by no means think that me saying “I’m Christian” means I think I’m perfect and everyone else is wrong.
Nope. I just do what works for me, and what works for me is being a Christian.
That said, sometimes when something’s going on in my life I open my bible and hope for the best because I’m still figuring out all the good stuff in there. Around the time I got engaged I came across Proverbs 31 and loved it. It’s all about being a wife. Ever since then it’s been my favorite Proverb to date. For one, it resonates with me. For two, it resonates with me. For three, I just like it.
I thought about hanging it in my house but I didn’t want some plain text verse up. I like color. So off I went into my vector editing program (Inkscape) a few weeks ago, or maybe a month ago, I don’t remember at this point – and I made up two versions of it. One that was split and could be fit into two 8×10 frames, and the other which could fit into an 11×17 inch frame.
I thought I’d share it with you guys, just in case any of you want it too. So below you’ll find both versions. Either click on the photos below to see them full sized (and then right click “Save as” to save it to your computer) or the PDF file at the bottom of this post. If you want to edit it for personal use go for it! You just need to open up the PDF is Inkscape.
As far as the graphics go below, all of the white space around them is suppose to be there. I gave it a margin so it would look nice in a frame.
Now let’s be honest, I really like Inkscape. I’ve mentioned it before, but I am most definitely not a pro in it. I don’t even know that I can be considered intermediate. If you have never used a vector editor before like Adobe Illustrator, or Inkscape, then I recommend either playing around until you get it or watching some tutorials. If you ask me, I can guarantee I’ll be of very little help. Just being honest.
