Ah, here we are again...time for another installment of "Faith Fridays."
Let me start with this trust little video because I know you're all dying to stare at my dark roots and asymmetrical nostrils.
1. My favorite phrase is "super excited".
2. I swear I didn't "color outside the lip lines" with my lipstick. I checked it twice, but it still looks off. Whatevs.
3. There is no good natural lighting in our house.
Now that we've gotten that out of the way...here is my layout:
The prompt is: Create a page or project to serve as a word of encouragement for yourself or someone you love. For me, this layout was a way to remind my son of something God's already done in our life.
Also, part of the challenge would be to create something that you could easily integrate right into your regular, annual albums. This page isn't overtly "faith-based", yet the journaling very much is what I wanted to remind him of.
So, that's the prompt for this week.
I think after I created this for Ethan, I needed to do something to remind myself as well...so I did this art journal page:
To me, this was 1000% therapeutic. Sometimes you just have to get lost in the paint. Regardless of how accomplished (or not) you are.
I created her bubble skirt using tissue paper and gel medium. I tore small pieces and balled them up, dabbing a dot of gel medium inside and then dabbing a dot on the back. Once it was all in place, I covered the whole thing in gel medium.
It's not going anywhere.
This week, I'm especially excited because I'm featuring the ridiculously amazing work of mixed media artist and god-lover, Stephanie Ackerman from Homegrown Hospitality.
Here is Stephanie's take on this prompt:
I think I may use her project as a jumping off point for whatever I do next week just because it's so darn inspiring. The truth in this..."Out of my hands and into his..." is SUCH a great reminder, and I love how she really created something meaningful for herself.
You can see more of Stephanie's project on her blog HERE. Scroll around there, it's amazing!
So, there you have it...don't forget to share your projects once you get going...I cannot WAIT to see what you guys come up with!
And finally, the winner of the life-changing, soul-jarring book "Lost and Found"
