Bible art journaling is something so many of us are enjoying these days. Yet, often people don’t join in because they don’t know how their art supplies will act on their Bible page. The BIG question seems to be, “Will it bleed through?!?” What is supposed to be all about the process of being in God’s presence and spending time in His Word, can start out as a scary feeling of trying to understand our art supplies in new ways. It all feels very technical to some. It doesn’t have to be this way! I want to try to take some of the mystery out of it [click to continue…]
Search Results for: Clear gesso
Some have asked me about using felt tipped pens (Micron, Faber Castell Pitt, Sharpie, etc) over gesso. This combo can be a big problem for people where their lovely pens suddenly dry up having been clogged by the gesso! White gesso tends to clog while clear gesso is so gritty of surface it tends to damage the pen tips. Even a few ball-point pens can get clogged up. I have lost two wonderful pens. How many have you lost? 🙂 I still have them sitting on my art desk hoping someday, I’ll hear a secret of how to fix them. Share if you know please!
Anyway… I’ve recently been [click to continue…]
Welcome to another week of the Bible Art Journaling Challenge!
I consider myself so blessed to be able to have so many of you joining me on this wonderful journey of going deeper with God through creativity.
This week I really wanted to break my Bible in a bit. Do something creatively with it which would finally make it feel like I wasn’t making another person’s book beautiful. Like, it was too precious to mess up and be real with. I wanted to OWN that book for myself and feel it has finally made home with me. As requested, I used Gelatos. I decided to hold nothing back and go a bit wild in the art studio and I think you’ll either love it or freak out! ha ha Watch my video below and then [click to continue…]
Hello Everyone! Welcome to week 41 of the Bible Art Journaling Challenge! One of the top questions I get asked regularly, is what to do about creating on the back side of a Bible page. Essentially, some art supplies can bleed to the back side of Bible pages without page prep applied first and then people can feel they are stuck with one beautiful side and one side that is basically “ruined”. I often get asked what to do in such a situation and today I’m going to show you!
Hello Everyone! It is week 30 of the Bible Art Journaling Challenge! I was overwhelmed by the response to my week 28 Bible Art Journaling Challenge which covered simple colored pencil blending. I shouldn’t have been surprised, given the countless times I’ve been asked about them. But, I guess I had no idea how wide-spread the desire is, to learn about them. In that tutorial I shared about how to blend two colors of colored pencil together. Simple stuff.
Today, I am keeping it simple still. I want to share about [click to continue…]
Hello Everyone! Welcome to week 42 of the Bible Art Journaling Challenge! The past several days, I’ve really been focusing in on praising God. Praising Him in ALL circumstances. Not FOR all things but rather, IN all things. God is not the author of bad things, so, I don’t thank Him for bad. But I DO, praise Him no matter what is going on around me. He is the One who can fix all things, give grace for all things and breathe new life on all things.
Join me in cracking open the Word of God, as we step out of our personal circumstances and into His perfect presence which changes everything. It’s time to praise Him on the margin!

Hello Everyone! Welcome to week 43 of the Bible Art Journaling Challenge! Are you one of those people, (like me), who sort of feels like the Fall/Autumn season is just another example of God showing off His majesty? 🙂 I just LOVE how beautiful the season can be and it always points me to how beautiful He is. All year I’ve been looking forward to capturing the majesty in my Bible. I want a constant reminder that every season has its time and every season has His beauty available to us.
So, I collected up a bunch of leaves and some [click to continue…]

Hello Everyone! Welcome to week 17 of my Bible Art Journaling Challenge! I can say with certainty that, of the 16 previous challenges I have released, this one is by far, my very favorite.
