Illustrated Faith Workshops at the LBH

Bring your Faith and your Art together in the form of Faith Journaling. Shanna Noel has started an "Illustrated Faith" Movement within the Art Industry and the Faith Community!

We are so excited to announce that Shanna Noel is coming to The Little Blue House to teach us all about "Illustrated Faith" on
 January 16th and 17th. 

For years, Shanna struggled to read her bible in a meaningful way. "I always wished I was more like that, that I LOVED to read my bible, that i even wanted to, but the truth is... often times i felt like it was more of a chore than anything else," she says. One day, though, she saw an image of a Bible all marked up, highlighted and underlined, and something about that struck a chord in her. 

She went online and ordered yet another new Bible-- but this time it was a Journaling Bible. "When I started to use my Journaling Bible, a light blub went off!" she explains.
I needed to have a place in my Bible for Reflection, Creativity, and Journaling and that is exactly what this new format provided." 

Now Shanna has taken her discoveries and is presenting them in a cohesive manner.
Join her as she shares how she uses her Journaling Bible in a colorful and creative way that allows for personal growth, reflection and illustration.

Then make 9 tags to tell your story. I teach some of the famous techniques such as “Smash and glue” or the “Fold glue and smash”. OK, I have made these names up but they are great techniques for making an album or a card. With the Tags you will learn new ways to use tags (tags on a tags), pockets and a slide though. We use Burlap, staples, brads, charms, sticks, chipboard, beads and ribbons, yarn and string.

Lance Anderson Bio
I am married with four children, Audrey (12), Mason (10), Anders (6) we call him Andy and Maggie (3).  I founded the scrapbook company Rusty Pickle.  We manufactured and sold some of the coolest "scrapbook stuff" in the world. I got into teaching when a teacher couldn't teach at an event and I just filled in.  After that weekend, I fell in love with teaching and was hooked and have been teaching ever since.  We have since closed Rusty Pickle and yet I still get to teach amazing projects all over the world.  I now design with product from different companies using their great "Stuff".  During the past 10 years, I have taught over 50,000 women (and 53 guys) on 5 continents and in 21 countries.  I have taught at hundreds of local scrapbook stores, CHA, CKU and events.   I still showcase fun projects on our local TV stations a few times a year.  I love teaching and have a blast meeting people all over the world.  When meeting people I am always fascinated to hear their stories.   A few of my favorite things are my family, pickles, and my iPhone.  I am always up for fun and making more memories to scrap.  I also love a day at the lake with my family and friends.
