Once I saw for myself how cool this was, I gave Shanna Noel a call and asked her if she would like to teach on one of our Cruise and Crop Cruises. It did not take her but a few seconds to say: Yes! We are soooooo very excited that she will be cruising to Alaska in 2016 on a Cruise & Crop Cruise! You can see all of the details on: www.cruiseandcrop.com Just click on "Cruises" and then you will see her listed as Illustrated Faith under our 2016 cruises.
Here's an example of what you can do. I am currently going through a "Season". I have parents who are in their 90's, children, grandchildren, a husband and a business. Needless to say.......I am busy and often overwhelmed. I took comfort in this passage that spoke of the Seasons we all go through. There is a time for everything and I am embracing this wonderful time in my life that I am sure will be full of precious memories I will cherish for a lifetime. I painted a spring and a fall tree on this page to show me that time does pass, but each season is beautiful in its own way.
Here's the products that I used: First I prepped my page margins with Liquitex Matte Medium. Then I used Gelatos to create the background behind the trees and also used Gelatos and colored pencils on the trees. I also used a bit of acrylic paint, and of course, a little glitter. I was going to leave the area with the scripture white, so that is why I did not prep that area. However, in the creative process, I thought it needed a bit of color. So, I used my Pan Pastels and rubbed a little color on with my fingers.
To keep me from painting ALL of the pages of my bible, I put tucked a few of the subsequent pages into an 8x8 page protector to keep the rest of the bible clean. That allowed me to paint right up to the edges of my page and brush my paint onto the plastic page without disturbing the underlying pages.
I hope you enjoyed this and that you will plan on joining Shanna Noel of Illustrated Faith on her cruise to Alaska. I am sure that you will be glad that you did!
