Kingdom Come - Week 2 Lesson

I am taking an online art class called Kingdom Come
It's a free 5 week series about the wonderful aspects of Christ Jesus, Praise and Worship, and His Church.
It will be taking a look at 5 themes and making art around those themes.
I just completed the Week 2 Lesson.  Here is my project.
 The Lesson is called Get Out Of The Boat!
from Matthew 14:22-33
The background layer is made using tissue paper to create texture.  Then I added several colors to try to create a storm effect for the sky and water.  All the layers of paint are spread on using an old credit card.  I then hand drew my sail boat on.    I hand wrote the Get Out Of The Boat using white and black markers.   I printed out the Matthew 14:22-33 and attached it to the top of the page.

Matthew 14:22-33
22 Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd.
23 After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone,
24 and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.
25 Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake.
26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.
27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”
28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”
29 “Come,” he said.
Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.
30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”
31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said,“why did you doubt?”
32 And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down.
33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”
