Happy Wednesday, Ladies! I hope you all enjoyed our study of The Women of Genesis.
Today, we’re kicking off our new study…
…with a fun title pic contest!
The title is taken from 1 Peter 3:4:
but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.
During the course of this topical study, we’ll take a look at the imperishable beauty of biblical womanhood, studying the various Scriptures that teach us what it means to be a godly woman. Married or single, young or old, if you want to become more conformed to the image of Christ and represent Him well as a Christian woman – whatever your station in life – this study is for you.
But before we get started studying, how about a little fun?
You’ve probably noticed that I design a title picture for each Bible study I write. Here are a few past title pics:
(You can see the rest of them at the Bible Studies tab, if you like.)
I got some great entries for The Women of Genesis title pic contest, so, once again, I wanted to get some of y’all involved in the design process for Imperishable Beauty.
Do you enjoy and have a knack for photo editing? Know someone who does? If so, I’m accepting submissions for title pictures for the Imperishable Beauty study. If your submission is chosen it will be used each week of the study, and you’ll be credited (name or website) by watermark. I’d love to be able to offer a huge cash prize, but, hey, we’re small potatoes here. This is just for fun and maybe a little publicity for your site, if you have one.
☙ You must use images that don’t require attribution. Pictures you’ve taken yourself are fine, as are images from sources such as Pixabay, Pexels, Freely, Unsplash, StockSnap, or other free stock photo web sites. Please include the image source web sites you use along with your submission. (You cannot just grab and use any old picture off the internet. Photographers own their images and usually require permission, attribution, and often a fee, for their use.)
☙ Title pics should be landscape (a horizontal rectangle) with a width of 640-1500 pixels and proportionate height. I prefer JPG images, but PNG is fine, too, if necessary.
☙ Your title pic must contain the full title of the study: Imperishable Beauty: A Study of Biblical Womanhood. (Be sure to double check your spelling).
☙ If your submission is selected, I’ll be glad to watermark it with your website address (please submit your picture without any watermarks) as long as your web site doesn’t conflict with my statement of faith or my beliefs outlined in the Welcome tab.
☙ Deadline for submissions is 11:59 p.m. Monday, September 10, 2018.
☙ E-mail your title pic submission along with your full name, web site address (if any), and the source(s) you used for your image(s) to MichelleLesley1@yahoo.com.
☙ Please don’t be offended if your submission isn’t selected. If I peruse all the submissions and I’m just not “feeling it,” I may still elect to design one of my own.
Feel free to share this around with friends who have an interest in photo editing. If you want to take a whack at it for fun but don’t know where to start, play around with Be Funky, PicMonkey, or Canva and see which one works best for you. Think about what it means to be a strong, godly woman and try to capture the feeling of the title, Imperishable Beauty: A Study of Biblical Womanhood, in your image.
