I was inspired by some people who paint on leaves.  Strange idea but an interesting effect.  I pressed it under hevey books for a couple of weeks and spray painted it white before I started.

Hi There - I had another go at this. 

I was thinking of Jesus the Messiah - the Creative Word of God - coming to live among us.  God didn't just say "Be" to Mary, but I belive he says "Be" to us in our cities and towns in our messed up world, and comes and lives amongst us in our dirt.  God's Creative Word changing our situations and lives bringing light, hope and life.

Isn't that what we are looking for?

Dave, don't you know this is haram

Thank you for letting me know this.

I didn't realize that using God's creation to be creative myself was a sin.

I believe God gave us creative abilities when he made us in his image see Genesis chapter 1

26 Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.’

27 So God created mankind in his own image,
    in the image of God he created them;
    male and female he created them.

God is a creating God making beautiful and diverse things.  He honours humans with that same creative ability so we can partner with him in making beautiful things.

How do you express your creativity?

Thanks again for your comment.

So it's not Qur'anic theology.

What a dull world we would live in if there was no art! 

All art uses God's creation and changes it to produce something beautiful.  Okay not as beautiful as God's original handiwork  but in cooperation and partnership with God we express something of the life God has given us.

and partnership with God

Kinda shamelessly arrogant, don't you think?

lt is really vile and impudent to fantasize you -or anyone else- can be a "partner" with the God of Noah -(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).

Where is that in the 10 Cs? 0r anyplace thereafter?

Which ever brand of chris!ianity you adhere to, compare your boast with Wisdom 14:8 then 14:15 and then 14:18ff.

lt is obviously on the lnternet, so you can find it. Try biblegateway.
