Freedom in Christ - Distress Paints and Crayons

Hello everyone and welcome to my new blog.
The Christian journey is a wonderfully, full, life long learning process. I am definitely a work in progress but the main thing is I am progressing.
I have recently been using art to express my faith journey and it is my intention to share that with you here on  my blog.
A couple of weeks ago I was playing around with Distress Paints and Distress Crayons to see if I could create a nice skin tone and this was the result.

I used Tattered Rose Distress Paint as a base layer. I then added Pumice Stone and Shaded Lilac Distress Crayons for shading. I used Picked Raspberry Distress Crayon for some blush on the cheeks. My final layer was Antique Linen Distress Paint smudged all over the top. I also used Picked Raspberry Distress Marker for the lips.

Butterflies always speak of freedom to me and I was reminded of 
Galatians 5:1  
"Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free," 
"Liberty" or freedom can mean many things to many people but I really like 
"Thayer's Greek Definitions" explanation:
"True liberty is living as we should not as we please."
When we live according to how we were designed to live, it is only then we experience true freedom.
