Created to Create 2 | Illustrated Faith

By now you probably could have guessed that I love making things whether it's painting for leisure or teaching a class, designing and creating jewelry, or making new content for the blog, podcast, or YouTube. I really like nurturing the creative side of myself. I discovered that I am more in tune with my Creator when I am in the midst of making. It really is a special time for me. This month's kit from Illustrated Faith is title Created to Create 2, and I can't tell you how happy I am to start studying with it.

What's in the Created to Create 2 Kit?

The kit is filled with everything you need to start Bible journaling or adding art to your Bible studies. I don't journal in my Bible, but instead I have a nice journal that I use for including art with the Scriptures I am studying.

In the kit you will find:

  • 1 clear stamp collection
  • 1 roll of washi tape
  • 1 thank you card from Shanna
  • 1 package of paper pieces (22 pieces)
  • 2 sheets of translucent stickers
  • 3 heart-shaped tip-ins
  • 4 devotional cards
  • 4 journaling cards

Creativity and Me

Creativity is a big part of who I am. I can't go too many days without making something. When I do, I feel a bit disconnected. With all that said, can I be honest for a second? I am not always okay with my creative process. When I take a new art class, I know the instructor's work will be better than mine. When I pull out my new Illustrated Faith kit each month, I know there will be other ladies who've done more marvelous things with same supplies like Marine Parents. I start to doubt myself which isn't good since the creativity I am sharing is meant to glorify the Most High God. That's why I am glad for this month's devotional. It speaks to the doubts and comparisons that I believe all artists and creatives struggle with at some point.

Even when my pictures come out blurry, I am still creative and good enough.

Even though the negative thoughts try to creep in, and I struggle from time to time, I still create. Do you want to know why? I honestly believe we were all created to create. We are made in His image and creativity flows in our blood. I will continue to create even when my waves aren't painted perfectly and the washi tape is a bit crooked.

Are you created to create? Do you shy away from making because you aren't an Instagram or Pinterest artist?
