Beauty For Ashes
To comfort the brokenhearted. To console all who mourn. To announce and display the goodness and truth of God’s word through published handcrafted visual and wearable artwork as directed by the Holy Spirit.
Based on Isaiah 61
Beauty for Ashes Crystallized Canvas Plaques are made using genuine Swarovski Crystals handset on solid, patterned & textured acid & lignin free specialty paper with digitally printed wording. Layered strips of high-quality paper are positioned then applied with a strong adhesive bond, providing a varied, dimensional look resulting in a unique, one-of-a-kind piece of artwork. After being handset, each crystal is individually polished to provide the maximum shine possible. Each print is a handmade art piece & is not reproduced or available for sale. They are given sowed as a gift to the receiver under direct inspiration and instruction by the Holy Spirit. In addition, each plaque is delivered with a special personalized prayer/confession card specifically for the receivers use.
Sowing His Gifts
The purpose of this journal is to share how the Father is using this ministry to bless and impact the lives of others. I share the stories of the recipients who receive a gift from me and the process God employed to direct the design. In addition to these stories, I share God’s word through each of the creative gifts He has given me. My vision for this space is that it be used as a place of inspired creativity. A place where the Word of God can be reflected through various creative mediums such as inscription via prayers and decrees, visual art and jewelry design. I also highlight all of the artistic and creative gifts that are in the Bible which many of us are unaware of. As the Father reveals understanding and proper application of His word to me, I will share it here. I endeavor to bring God glory and to worship Him in all I do by using the vehicle of social media to proclaim and exalt His Word creatively as He directs.
