Messiah Conference is in a week, which means the leaders for the teen program, including Hero, are hard at work getting stuff done. This includes making posters to advertise various events, a task which Hero has wisely outsourced to me in the past several years.
(I actually asked to do them while we were dating too, but Hero didn’t take me up on the offer. This was partly because he didn’t expend all that much effort on them and therefore didn’t see it as a big deal, and partly because he wasn’t used to delegating yet. It annoyed me, though. Conference tended to be a source of friction in general.)
Anyway, today I finished the one for The Upper Room (a series of times of prayer and worship, inspired by the prayer room at IHOP) and it’s so pretty I wanted to share it.
I’m so pleased with it.
“Seek His Face” seemed to fit in with a sun motif, possibly because of the bit in the Aaronic Benediction, “May He make His face to shine on you.”
The shapes are cut from melted crayon paintings and glued on with Mod Podge Dimensional Magic, which actually holds them on! Hooray! In the past I’ve had to pull out the spray adhesive if I wanted to stick crayon paintings to anything, and that was a pain. The brown letters are cut with my Silhouette, of course, and the letters for the times were just traced on by holding the pieces up to my computer screen. The font is Short Hand, which for some reason I cannot locate online. Maybe there’s a jazzy spelling or something.
It’s latish, but I’ll link to Paint Party Friday anyway.
