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.
“Make a Joyful Noise”, by Kelly Holbrook.
I paired up some elements from the IF Whatever is Lovely collection along with Bella Blvd's Fresh Market and Max collections for a more masculine page. Using some of the new Illustrated Faith Paper Pieces also made it easy to customize my theme.

Embellished Praise Book, by Shellye McDaniel.
I got a head start on my new “Praise Book” by embellishing it with fun and colorful stickers, chipboard, die-cuts and enamels! Today I’ll share a few of the pages that I decorated, as well as four chipboard inserts that I added.
To the introduction page I added two areas of turquoise acrylic paint and smooth it out with one of the “Paint It Cards”. Butterfly images were stamped onto the dried paint areas and then a matching image was stamped onto patterned paper, cut out and then attached with foam adhesive tape.
I took four scrolled chipboard shapes from a mini album set and covered each one (front and back) with papers from the “She Blooms” collection. I glued a trim of twine around the edge and love how they peek out slightly from the side of the book.
I have all of my washi tapes, pens, stamps and stickers set aside in a basket so that I can continue to embellish the pages as I begin to add journaling and prayers!
