Hello Everyone! Welcome to week 15 of my Bible Art Journaling Challenge! I thought it was high time I offered you a tip-in tutorial! A tip-in is essentially something which you attach into your Bible on one side, which can then [click to continue…]
Hello Everyone! Welcome to week 14 of my Bible Art Journaling Challenge! This week is an interesting one! Have you ever had a creative process just go, all wrong? I’m letting you in to my process this week and showing you how I fixed a page that wasn’t turning out like I wanted.
Very fitting when I wanted to [click to continue…]
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…]
Hello Everyone! Welcome to week 13 of my Bible Art Journaling Challenge! I’ve ventured in to adding acrylics to my Bible page and want to share how to do that, with you. It’s a mixed media week!

Hello Everyone! Welcome to lesson 12 of my Bible Art Journaling Challenge! This week I wanted to follow on from what I talked about last week. I don’t normally have my themes rely on each other too much so they can be enjoyed on their own.

Hello Everyone! Welcome to week 11 of my Bible Art Journaling Challenge!
I am excited to share a few techniques with you, which I have not shared with you before. I want to show you how to color vellum using Gelatos and end up with a totally unwrinkled surface doing it! I next want to show you how to insert that vellum into your Bible as an additional creative page! Inserts are super fun and open up so many possibilities for us art journaling in our Bibles! Lastly, I want to show you how to add a beautiful little tab to the insert, using a stunning and very cost effective solution! This is a special post for me today. The techniques are fun to share! But most of all, the topic is incredibly dear to me.

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…]
