Tuesday's are all about illustrating your faith here on the blog, where we bring you projects that show how to work your faith and your beliefs into the creative outlets that we all know and love. Our Illustrated Faith focused designers combine the Bella Blvd and Illustrated Faith brands and products in a variety of projects that we hope will inspire you in one way or another.
“Joy”, by Carol Chastain.
Inspiration for this layout came from the verse in Nehemiah 8:10 that says, "...the Joy of the Lord is my strength." I had a batch of random photos that show life around here ... laundry, table and countertops, weather ... usual stuff. I wanted to capture life in our home right now and use it as a reminder that when I am overwhelmed with the mundane things of life that His joy really is my strength. I am from the South and so I threw in a bit of that pineapple paper as a symbol of hospitality. I also used the little phrase stickers to word "slice of life" and placed it on the photo with knives (pun completely intended).

“Season's Change”, by Wendy Antenucci.
Sometimes a picture takes your breath away, this was one of those pictures! I chose to use white cardstock to showcase this picture so that it would continue to stand out in all of its glory. I used some of the flowers I had fussy cut from the papers and postcards to draw your eyes through my page and continue the vibrancy of the colors. I used some of my Shimmerz paints to add subtle color through the page. Pops of black add boldness throughout the page forming a visual line for your eyes to travel through. Little enamel dots and cute little clips finish the layout adding texture through the page.
