font love friday

hello! happy friday!

today for font love friday i'm gonna share the entry way wall art i made recently. my entry way has been looking pretty cluttered lately and i have been feeling the need to simplify it. it previously had a charging station (that was not plugged in because there is no outlet on this wall, so it wasn't charging anything), random books that needed to be put away, a change jar, art work and posters from the kids that needed to be put away, "treasure's in heaven" treasure boxes where the kids earn marbles when doing an act of kindness, and some clothes or hair clips from friends that forgot them here. that's A LOT of stuff for such a small area. and since it's the first thing people see when they walk in, i wanted it to make a much different statement. 

the quote actually comes from lyrics of a Watermark (Christy Nockels band with her husband) song. i just love that it makes such a bold statement, that we desire Jesus to INVADE our home, with his truth and light. and we want to proclaim that to all who enter our home. 

Come, come in
Invade all You see of us
Any man, who'd walk Your road is welcomed here
And You're the only one

Jesus, come and walk the halls of this house
Tread this place and turn it inside out
With Your mercy...
Jesus, teach us the prayers that open these doors
Until Your light floods in and illuminates these floors
And let Your truth be on our steps and in these rooms
Jesus invade...

Reach, reach in
With the hand that heals all our suffering
Conquer all that is not of You
Bring Your spirit throught
As we fill these walls with Your praise


I call for angels
I call for mercy
I call for freedom
In the name of Jesus
In the name of Jesus

to make this i spray painted a canvas with chalkboard paint, made lines across every 2.25" apart with regular chalk, then traced a Helvetica 2" stencil with a white chalk pen.

Helvetica is such a classic type, i love how this turned out. 

have a great weekend!
