Tuesdays are the days I posts my crafty endeavors. If I don't have a craft or a handmade card to share, I show my Bible Journaling Pages. If your new to Bible Journaling and want to learn more about it, see this post HERE! I use the Inspire Bible which has some pre-printed pages, that I can just color in, but I also venture off and get creative sometimes and create my own pages.
This has always been one of my favorite verses. I colored it with gel pens.
More pages colored with gel pens. Gel pens are the best medium to use to color in these intricate images.
Here I did the background with gelatos followed by gel pens for the more intricate work. I had a reader comment that she tried gelatos too but could not get as smooth of a look as I did. It's because after I apply the gelato, I then take a firm white triangle sponge that came with my gelato set, and I rub it over the gelato. It smooths and spreads the gelato out and it also helps me to get into those difficult spots.
The next two pages didn't turn out exactly the way I had hoped, but I like to include my failures as well as my successes to show I'm learning and making mistakes too. This image I colored the intricate areas in with gel pens, but then the background was colored with pencils. I'm really not a fan of colored pencils, as I don't like how I can see the pencil strokes. It's not a smooth look like I can get with gelatos.
This page I made the same mistake: coloring the background with pencils instead of gelatos. Yuck! Never again! I'll either leave the background black, or only use gelatos/watercolors in the future. The details were colored with gel pens.
I have to show you what my beautiful daughter gave me for Mother's Day: this book on "Faith and Lettering". I was so excited to get this book because it teaches you how to draw beautiful letters. Handwriting is so important in Bible Journaling to create beautiful pages. You can find this book on Amazon.
Have A Great Day! Amy
