Hello crafty friends...Penny here today. When I was first approached about Bible journaling, I didn't think I could do it. I mean really...drawing, doodling, marking up a Bible was kind of like burning a flag...legal, but just not something I would do. And besides, what if I messed it up. Then I decided that everyone makes mistakes, but a true artist can figure out how to cover it up and make it look great! So....... you jump into the good book with your first stamp and you are hooked.
I absolutely love this particular verse, so let's get started:
Using StazOn Jet Black ink, stamp flower image onto the Bible page. (For protection in case anything bleeds through the paper, I put a piece of White card stock underneath my page...you will be thrilled to know that nothing I used on this page bled through...woohoo)
2. Using Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Yellow, I colored the upper left flowers.
3. Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Stamper's Big Brush Pens in Blue were used for the upper right flower and Red pens were used for the flower at the bottom.
4. Using a pencil and light hand, I spelled out the verse I wanted to highlight for this page. I then traced over with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® PITT Artist Pens in Black.
5. To give my page a bit more color I used Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Art Grip Aquarelles in Green (with no water) for the leaves.
And because I just had to see how a Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Gelatos would do on the paper, I added just a bit of Snowcone around the stem of the leaves with a dry paintbrush.
Yes, it worked great and no bleeding through the rice paper in my Bible.
