(For more background on the Cardboard Testimony project, read here and here)
Here's one I just finished to give you an idea (try not to pay attention to the creatively messy desk!):
The palette is subtly matched to the colors of the church- the greens, yellows, reds, and blues of the decor. At the same time, it's also supposed to look a bit messy and 'undone'…because 'perfect' artwork next to the cardboard testimonies would look quite strange. The words from the sermon are subtle on purpose (often in the same monochromatic color) so that they do not take away from the graphic effect of the cardboard testimonies.
Total aside, but I love that this piece is "green"- not only do we have the re-used cardboard, but the white pieces you see are actually the paperboard that backs x-rays. It happens to be the perfect size, and is light enough to be hung, and it took gesso like a champ.
It's in the beginning stages…I'll post more as it comes together, and you'll be able to see the progression.
We did cardboard testimonies at our church on easter and it was really quite powerful. People really shared their hearts and I think that God was magnified!
We’ll see if this one works -;). Cool project! I loved you “all’s grace” post and left a big comment, then somehow lost it! (starting to think the devil *is* in the details -;). The gist of what I had said is that PEACE you’re experiencing IS GOD. So just remember that when you feel like you need to do, or be, more! Resist the temptation and just soak it all up right now. You’re exactly where you’re supposed to be, doing exactly what you’re supposed to be doing – ;). Good reminder for myself too!
