Make a Joyful Noise Banners and Stole
Make a Joyful Noise Greeting Card
The background of the image (and reflecting the "all ye lands" theme) was painted after being inspired by the brilliant and beautiful strata in the hills in Death Valley (awful name for a beautiful place). The creation of this set was inspired by a worship service at the First Congregational Church of Berkeley (United Church of Christ), my California home church, where there was a wonderful Sunday hymn sing. (I receive a majority of my inspiration for new pieces from going to worship and actually listening to the sermons.)

Would you like to turn the artwork from an Art from the Soul banner or some other pattern or art you see on this web site (like sunrises) into a stained glass window banner?   Now you can!  Ask to have one of the above patterns overlain on a banner image or any of our other art  to see what it looks like.

The samples below are variations of the "Here am I. Send me." banner  and the "Flaming Rose Nebula" painting with the rose window patterns overlain on them.  Overall colors were changed which can be done with almost any piece of art.

Here is another idea.  Take any stained glass window design above and in fill in or partially fill in specific panes in the window to create a unique design for your church.

We will help you match your church colors with our free virtual hanging service.    Need framing or hanging ideas? Just give us a call.  Contact information is at the bottom of the page.

Custom design requests are welcome.  Creating creative solutions is our pleasure.   

High quality prints are available for your home, office or church.  Just give us the size you want and in minutes you can have a quote  for this art on paper, canvas or other materials.  For framing, the outer blank areas will be printed in black.  (Makes a great gift for your church staff and ministers.)

"Thank you so much for your help with our order. It arrived on Saturday 8/1. We gave the Joyful Noise stole to our pastor this afternoon. She LOVED it! The name of our in-church band is Joyful Noise, so it was super appropriate as she leaves us to have something to remember everyone by. She was so touched by the stole and its quality.  Blessings to you,  Tara Germano"

"Hello, and I thank you so very, very much!  The stole arrived on today and is gorgeous. My Lord!  Your patience is truly appreciated.  I cannot thank you enough!" Cassandra Clark

"You are so amazing Julie....These are the pictures from the whole Transition of Ordination and Installation Service held last Sunday at Kellogg Christian Church (DOC) in Kellogg, Iowa...a small little church filled with lots of heart.  It was a perfect service,,,  The stole was amazing out of the box, on a hangar, ironed, back on the hangar but it really took on life when it was placed around my neck and shoulders...Naomi DeHart presented it to me and Julie Gibson helped her. I had waited so long for the service and to wear the stole!!!!  Thank you so much.  It is back on a padded hangar until the New Year.  Peace and blessings...God has truly gifted you...Wendy  PS, I will get cards to match after my next payday!"

From Darcy Davis:  "The ordination ceremony was awesome!  Everyone commented on the beauty of my stole!  I felt like the belle of the ball!  ;-)  I was clicking off the name of your web site left and right!  Should have had some of your business cards with me.  The symbolism in my stole was so meaningful to so many people."

"Good Morning!    I received the stoles yesterday and they are beautiful!!! The Methodist cross looks great!!   I can not wait to give them to the 2 pastors involved...they will love  them-----Thank you! Diane"

"Thank you Julie, the stole is absolutely beautiful!  I love it.  Candace Stewart"
Get creative with butterflies (or anything else)!  Easter 2012 at Sparks First Christian Church included two dozen banners, valences throughout the sanctuary in matching monarch butterfly colors, ninety butterflies emerging from the "empty tomb," a communion table runner in monarch butterfly colors, a three dimensional butterfly cross and a shawl of butterflies for "Mary Magdalene" at the tomb.  Let us brainstorm with you for meaningful, visual worship.  Art from the Soul gives wings to ideas.

What a fun challenge this was!  Pastor Steve Wren of Sparks First Christian Church was preparing a series of sermons based on the "The Women of Lent."  He gave me a brief description of each sermon and gave me the freedom to create.  He mentioned that he envisioned shawls.  I took some liberties with this assignment and created some designs that may not have been seen in the day but placed them on modest covering, mostly with traditional Jewish fringe.  The designs reflect what I personally thought described the women.

Mary, Mother of Jesus:  The Shawl of Separation
Mary, the Mother of Jesus talks about the separation she felt when he went missing in Jerusalem.  I visualized people dressed to go to temple.  This shawl captures some traditional lines that might have been seen in a Jewish shawl, including fringe.

Mary of Clopas, Mother of James, Son of Alpheus: The Shawl of Faith
Joseph’s sister shares her observation of his faith to take on the role of adoptive father.  I visualized browns and burlap for a natural, rugged look of a carpenter’s sister.

Mary & Martha:  The Shawl of Belief 
The sisters recall the resurrection of Lazarus and Christ’s call to belief.  
I used the idea of anointing and reflected it in the stoles, using the color and droplets of an anointing oil.  Enlarged, you can see the individual droplets.  Each shawl has a different pattern.

Mary Salome - Wife Zebedee - Mother of James & John: The Shawl of Worship
Her boys were called the “sons of thunder.”  She worships Jesus, her nephew, boldly.
There was no doubt in my mind that this image had to be one of a storm. I'd like to wear this shawl myself!

Mary of Magdala:  The Shawl of Transformation 
Mary talks about the total turnaround in her life.  I immediately knew that I was going to create a shawl with butterflies.

Joanna and Pilate’s Wife:  The Shawl of Sacrifice
Joanna’s husband was the steward in Pilate’s house.  She will talk about Pilate's wife’s warning. The colors purple symbolize warning.  This banner can be ordered with one shawl per banner or with the two shawls together.

I chose to create two totally different shawl patterns but both in purple.  Pilate's wife's shawl is more sophisticated as I'm sure she would have had the means to employ artisans in any era.  There is no fringe as I made the assumption that as Pilate's wife, she was not Jewish but was a follower of Christ.  This is the other shawl I'd love to wear.   I started off with a somewhat symmetrical image but decided that I preferred the asymmetrical design.  To create Joanna's shawl, I originally created a nebula and then swirled the paint!

The women at the empty tomb:  He Lives! 
Three women meet early on Sunday to talk about the preparation of Jesus’ body and are seen at the entrance to the empty tomb.


Banners can be requested individually or as a group.  For the banners that have multiple shawls in them, they can be separated and printed individually if requested.

The banners were created at 2 ft. x 3 ft but can be proportionally enlarged or  reduced .   Note: If the 2'x3' size on paper is selected, the price is $55 for museum quality, heavy stock, archival paper and ink. Call for a quote on other sizes or materials including fabric or canvas (775-425-6821).  If you purchase 7 or more of these images on paper, printed in our studios, get one banner free.  Each banner can also be made into a greeting card or grouped into sets of cards. 

See The Men of Lent banner series on Banners page 4.
The banner came on Monday and is wonderful! Thanks so much! Leanne
