I recently discovered Mustard Seed Challenges. You can read more about them here. Their challenges help me reflect on my faith and stretch my creativity. This month is a sketch challenge with the theme of creativity. Confession time: a sketch challenge is the hardest thing for me. Maybe because working within a structure is trickier for me.
Thinking about Creativity led me to John 1 in the Bible. It talks about Jesus being in the beginning and nothing was created without him. Because of him we can be created anew.
I decided to make an art journal page because that is where I express my thoughts, dreams, and feelings....
It was about here when my dad became extremely ill and passed away. I haven't been to this page in a couple of weeks, so I don't know if the challenge has changed. My family and I are doing okay....
I think the sketch given is unusual, beautiful, and challenging.
For the oval, I thought of a hand. We create so much with our hands. The image inside the oval is a delicate butterfly symbolizing us as new creatures in Christ. And the heart is for how much we are loved.
Thanks Mustard Seed Faith Challenges for this experience.
