Rejoicing, Painted Papers Accordian Book, Marcia Carole

Today, I continued to work on a variety of design concepts for new collaged art/story books. I’ve been wanting to collage the idea of God rejoicing over us with singing, and the aspect of birds who sing, even in the rain. Similarly, I wanted to portray, in the art, the idea of God singing over us, even in the rain or in a dark hole – during the dark parts of our stories.

I made quite a mess in the studio, but I did learn to ink a stamp with screen printing ink, I experimented with and used “YES!” which is an adhesive, and I storyboarded a few ideas when not taking notes from Marge’s pearls of wisdom. You know she is about to say something important when her finger goes up. When she is about to say someting profoundly significant, two fingers go up!

The process continues tomorrow…..

The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17
