We have a number of projects on the website created around a flip-chart Prayer Calendar. One of them is for teachers to pray daily for their students. Probably I have thought about that as something a teacher makes and takes to her classroom. Here is the story of a twist on just how that might happen.
Some creative practices have been around for a long time- like card making. What sets apart this artist is the time spent in prayer as she makes each card. Meet Pamela Bryan..
There are a number of ways to enter into experimenting with Visual Faith practices. Three basic avenues are Visual Prayer, Bible Journaling and Keep the Faith projects. Here is a circle wreath project that can be adapted to match liturgical seasons and creative groups.
Time to learn some Gelli Printing techniques with Visual Faith Artist- Diane Marra.
Maybe this is the year to start a new family tradition. One to capture visual blessings and story and to create a very tactile way of sharing the journey.
A simple way to bring focus to a Bible verse. Using painter's tape - tape card to table top- placing tape to have a margin on the top, sides and a larger margin on the bottom. Using Watercolor Cards (Michael's or Hobby Lobby) simply add watercolor.
Then with a Sharpie pen add silhouette images to the card. You may use a regular or fine-point Sharpie pen. Image ideas can be found by Googling Silhouettes. Remove tape and add Bible verse in the bottom space. Polaroid Praise is ready to display or bless someone else!
We thank Visual Faith coach- Michele Bowden for demonstrating this great and simple idea at a recent Creative Haven event. She will be at the Visual Faith Assembly on August 3, 2018 at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Springfield, Virginia to share this idea with others
