Help me Choose & Word Art Freebie

I need your help! I made up this word art to frame and hang in my house but I don't know which one I like the best. At first I made the word art with the intent of clipping pretty digital scrapbooking papers to it but after I made both I almost liked the plain one better. Then I decided to add some shadows just to see what it would look like. I just don't know which one I like best. I keep changing my mind I showed them all to my hubby and OF COURSE he chose the one that I was leaning less towards. Ahhh....help. So could you tell me which one you like best and be sure to look below to download the word art for free! Oh and I made it to fit into a 16x20 frame and I'll probably go with a simple black frame....so try to picture that when you are thinking about which one you like best.
Is it #1. The plain, simple and colorful one.
 #2. The more pretty one with digital scrapbook paper clipped to the different layers.
All the pretty papers are from different kits I had in my stash from Scrap Orchard.
 Or #3. The one that looks more handmade with the shadows.
Help me out....pretty please. Once I make a decision (hopefully with some help from you all) then I'll get it printed, framed and hang it in my house and show it to you all.

Oh and that's not all. For helping me out you can download the plain word art in PNG & layered PSD for FREE here so that you can make your own picture for your house or you can use it for your digital scrapbooking pages. I sized it at 16x20....a little bigger then a 12x12. Mainly because that's the size I wanted to print it at. It can easily be resized to whatever you would like.

Thanks for giving me your opinion!

Beautiful! I vote for number 1; I like the darker colors. Thanks for sharing it.

Cocotounette said...

I must say I like the number one best too :) especially with a black frame ...
Thank you for sharing your artwork with us !!

Donnak said...

I agree that I like #1 best for a black frame. It is the more graphic and clean looking of the three and will give the most impact to the message. Thanks for the chance to give an opinion and for the download.

Celticbabe said...

With a black frame, I think #1. But I like #3 best. :) Good luck!

I vote for #3. The shadows really make a big difference IMHO :)

reikkmmom said...

#3 - I really like the shadows.

Scarlet 357 said...

If it were me and I was going to use a black frame then #1 is the only choice that works well with black. The other 2 choices are much softer,too soft for black, and would look better with a brown frame or one of the colors from the word art.
Thank you for the freebie, but I would hve answered you just because you asked. tee hee

Hifam said...

I love this. Thanks so much for sharing. My favorite is #3.

CandyScraps said...

My first choice is number 1, with number 3 as my second choice. :)

macfandee said...

I would have to ask what are the colors you are carrying in the room this will be in? And as scarlet mentioned what color is your frame going to be? You want to pull colors from the room. Keeping that in mind.. The handmade look of #3 is my favorite. But then again I am a shadowaholic. :) So if you use the bolder colors in #1 I would add the shadows of #3 to pop is out . thanks for sharing !

Anna said...

These are gorgeous (in fact I would love to have one in my home!)but I think I like #3 better and I have incredibly good taste! LOL!!!

Sarah said...

I like #3 the best, but maybe put it in a white frame rather than black. It needs something softer! :)

Tiffany said...

I like #1, I think it keeps the focus on the words. The shadows are my least favorite.

Debra Lois said...

I like the softness of #2.

Lulutoo said...

Hmmm, I like them both, but I think it depends on your home decor. I agree with others that the first one would look better in the black frame. For the third one, I wonder how it would look with a small bevel instead of the shadow? Anyway, thanks for the download!

Cindy said...

I really like number two, but not sure how it will look with the black frame. I think the colors would work better with a brown frame.

Rebecca said...

I definitely prefer the darker/brighter colors in #1, although the hand-made look of #3 is cool. I think clipping papers to it is a great idea, but you might be better off with papers that have a more subtle texture - more like the papers you chose for "and" and "Lord" than the ones for "my" and "house."

Thanks for the freebie! I can't wait to see your finished project!

scaccogirl said...

I like #3 the best on its own, but depending on your house/room colors, #1 might be better. #1 would be good in the black frame, but maybe #3 needs wood to go with the papers a little more.

Rebecca said...

Sorry, just had another idea. I was looking at the image again, and thought it might be kind of cool to take some words and (digitally) cut them out of the white background and place a colored paper behind the cut out. If you then shadow the white paper, it adds a 3rd layer of dimension. Just a thought.

Lainie said...

Don't think you could miss with any of them Liz, but my preference would be #3. I always like the depth the drop shadows add. I love that quote too, have it on my fireplace screen and another in the dining room.

HighDesertGal said...

I actually like #3 for most of my house but definitely #1 for the playroom.

Lenka said...

I like the third most!

renabean20 said...

I like the first one the best! That's what I would do in my house (but I'd get it matted with a color from the print and a white frame, but that's just me lol!) I think it will look simple and clean.

Jodi said...

I like number 3...

Sharon said...

I like #3...with the shadowing it appears to reach out to you.

Kimberly Hill said...

#1 for me - thanks for the freebie too!

teresaj said...

I like #1. It looks elegant to me.

Amy said...

I like the third one the best but I think I would have to go with a distressed black frame or even a brown one.

Lee said...

With a black frame I like the colors of the first on the best....I think they would pop in the black frame! Beautiful work! Thank you!

wilkemom4 said...

If it's going in a plain black frame, then I vote for #1. If you choose #2 or #3, I would them into a brown frame...

CraftCrave said...

Just a quick note to let you know that a link to this post will be placed on CraftCrave in the DigiFree category today [13 Jul 01:00am GMT]. Thanks, Maria

fallonmjf6 said...

I really like them all, but maybe #3, just to be different I guess.
Thanks for the freebie.

AZK said...

As they are right now, I like #3 the best. But I agree it might not work with a black frame. If the frame HAS to be black, I'd say #1 for the stronger colors.

The Steigmeiers said...

I love all of them, but I would go with #1.

Jenny said...

Nice! I'm leaning toward the second one (papers with no shadow). But, it really depends on what the room looks like and what colors you want to accent. I think either will look great! (sorry to not be more decisive). ;)

Sweet Pea said...

I like #3 - the shadows help make it look dimensional, which will make it look better printed and framed! And that's one of my favorite verses! Blessings,
Susan

Cheryl said...

I am partial to the bolder colors in #1 but like the shadows in #3. :)

Scrapping With Liz said...

Thank you all so much! I think I know what I'm going to do...and seriously you guys helped a lot! I'll show you all in a few weeks!!!

Mommy Me Time Scrapper said...

I like #1, I like the brighter colors.

Mendy said...

number 1 is my first choice and then I like number 3, but 1 would go better with a black frame

Mendy said...

number 1 is my first choice and then I like number 3, but 1 would go better with a black frame

klkdak0202 said...

I narrowed it down to either 1 or 3, but my final decision would be number 3!!! Very nice. Thank you for the freebie!!!

Tiffany said...

I love number 3!!

grambie said...

Liz, I personally prefer the last word art with the gorgeous drop shadows that add depth as well as dimension to your wall art. But if you're going to use a black frame, then number one would have to be your choice.
Thank you for this wonderfully designed Biblical word art. It will most certainly have a place of honor in my home. It has extra meaning for me because I am a recuperating quadriplegic who survived through his grace in spite of medical diagnoses and prognosis. This is so precious.

Deb said...

I love that verse. Thanks for sharing. I like #1 but wonder how it would look with the shadows? I like the shadows of #3 but the colors in #1....how is that for confusion!!! Good luck on choosing.

Sue said...

I like #3 best, but with a black frame, #1 would look better.

Sue said...

I forgot to thank you for the lovely word art. THANK YOU!!

Rhadonda said...

#1 gets my vote. An awesome verse for sure.

kc71595 said...

I <3 #3!

SK Black said...

I like #1. I think the colors are wonderful and will stand out even more against the black frame.--Dawn B.
