It has been a turbulent few weeks. Lets be honest, it has been a turbulent 2020. There is so much to process and pray through, so I am very glad that Illustrated Faith released this beautiful freebie called “Brothers & Sisters in Christ” to help us all as we use art to process, pray, and document.

Check out my process video for this page!

The process for this page was very simple, but the thoughts and the heart behind it were big. I was focused in the book of Micah, specifically in Micah 3:1-4. In this passage, Micah is condemning Israel’s leaders for leading the people astray and not recognizing justice. He accuses them of ripping the people apart. This passage was brought up in a recent sermon at my church (you can check out the sermon here), and it really impacted me. Far too often, our elected leaders can lead us astray. There are leaders in our community and in our country that are speaking truth however, so I constantly pray for discernment. But, mostly, I pray that my brothers and sisters will know that I will ALWAYS stand up for them in the face of injustice and discrimination.

I began this page by blending Distress Oxide Ink in three colors to create a rainbow. Then, using a pipeline stencil, I blended more ink to show how interconnected we all truly are. A few drops of water to begin the oxidation process, and the background was done!

The rest of the page was just a process of trial and error in placing paper pieces. I loved this printable set so much, so it was really hard for me to pick and choose which images I was going to include. I ended up including so many that I am sure the page looks a bit cluttered, but that’s okay with me!

How have you been documenting this season? How have you been processing it? I’d love to hear from you below!

Keep it creative,
