One of the art groups that I participate in is working on a project that some of you may want to participate in, so I wanted to invite you! I should have done this sooner, but it is not too late. Many of you may be able to scan journal pages, or do quick sketches with watercolors, or use some stencils and sprays for backgrounds….. My point is that you don’t have to spend a ton of time that may be very meaningful to someone else. You could even use patterned paper for background, print and cut strips of scripture — whatever you can manage. If you want to be part of this project, please start creating and send your art to arrive by June 12th so that Melissa can take it with her. Please keep reading or more details.
Melissa will be traveling to Uganda, June 2012 to work with Reach One Touch One Ministries (http://www.reachone-touchone.org/). They work with Grandmothers and Grandfathers, many of whom are raising orphaned grandchildren due to the HIV-AIDS epidemic. She will be visiting several remote villages and ministering to the seniors who benefit from sponsorship in ROTOM.
If you would like to create a piece of art (no bigger than 5″ x 7″, please) that includes a positive and uplifting scripture verse, Melissa will hand these out as she goes from village to village.
The beauty of ART transcends any language!
So what can you create?
- 3×5 cards – gather your favorite verses, add them to 3×5 cards, embellish them, laminate them (if you have a laminator) punch holes in the and attach them together with a book ring.
- Small canvas – create using verses and positive quotes and embellishments.
- Bookmarks – Use large manila tags to create book marks with verses and/or quotes, add hand stitching and embellish with thread, yard and colorful strings & beads.
We can serve and make a difference for those around us as well as those around our globe.
It is time to create! If you want to help, please contact me at: kristiesloan.us(at)gmail(dot)com and I will get you the mailing address.
If each of us just make a few simple pieces in the next few days, she can have a nice quantity to take with her. What do you say, are you in?
