Welcome! I'm Melissa Gross, a dynamic and interactive teacher and speaker called to lead and encourage Christian women in their walk with the Lord through classes, workshops and retreats incorporating Bible study, devotionals, illustrated Bible journaling, paper crafting and mixed media projects that merge faith and art bringing God’s Word to life so you can find renewed excitement to dive into the Word, use your creative gifts, and apply the Truth as you draw closer to the Lord and serve Him in your everyday life. This site is where I share my everyday adventures, Bible Journaling pages, scrapbook layouts, handmade cards, and other crafty projects, as well as information on my upcoming workshops and events. I also post photos, ramble about books I'm reading, stuff I'm organizing, and other FUN bits & pieces of my wonderful life.

Playful Photography - Frugal Still Life Photography
I didn't really get a pull back shot for these, but here's a look at my space at the table. The white plastic tablecloth and the green bag provided the backdrops for my photos.
One of the sessions at the Play! event was lead by Tracey Clark (founder of Shutters Sisters) and was all about playful photography. We were given instructions to visit several stations throughout the hotel that had been set up as a scavenger hunt for fun photos. Today I'm sharing photos from that session that I think fit in with Cheryl's still life class.
I set up the shots of the glasses and the crown, but the two outdoor shots were of items that were there for us to use and play with in our photos - I simply shot them as still life. Please let me know in the comments what you think of these still life photos. Do you have a favorite?
[BTW - did you notice that one of them is also a selfie?]
