Bird Wreath, New Classes…and my BOOK!

Bird Wreath, New Classes…and my BOOK!

Guess what? It might be Monday, but I’m over on the MFT blog. They’re changing up things so I might be on Mondays from here on instead of Thursdays. Go see how to paint this “tweet” little wreath!

 

Blue Skies

Those on my Art-Classes email list got a heads-up on signing up….but you get to hear about it today! I have TWO classes launched on painting and coloring skies and clouds – one in Copic, one in Watercolor. A discount for everyone on these classes, lasting through April 22nd!

The BOOK!

I am excited to let you know there was a little Easter miracle…my book finally showed up on Amazon and Barnes and Noble!! I waited all through March, and on the last last last evening…it was there. With the wrong photo and title – ha! It’s partially changed in some places, but…I’m celebrating anyway while they figure it out and get it all fixed! Book website is HERE!

While I know the non-Bible-journalers may be disappointed in the book topic…please know I’m going to be keeping up my regular blogging and cardmaking and art stuff! You’ll have to put up with an occasional “squee” from me about the book, but you’ll get the regular content you come here for. Don’t abandon me, okay? Love you guys!!

New for Bible Journalists (and a Houston pet report!)

New for Bible Journalists (and a Houston pet report!)

Brand new channel!

Last week, I launched a new channel. Some of you found it…my patrons got first peeks! And now the rest of my Bible Journaling friends can go check it out.

The new channel is HERE.

A few things about it…..

  • I won’t be blogging the posts – maybe once in a while just so folks don’t miss it all, but it’ll be You-Tube-only content for now til I figure out what I’ll be doing with it all.
  • That means subscribing and having the videos emailed to you will be the way to get notified, or else check your YT subscriptions on Sunday mornings. Click the little button right next to the “Subscribe” button to have them emailed to ya.
  • I’ll be posting stills on Instagram and Facebook on Sundays with a link, so that’ll be one other way remember to go look, but you know how unreliable those social platforms are at showing you what you actually care about, eh?

The video that went live yesterday is a special one for 9/11…hope you enjoy.

And that pet report!

I told you guys I helped send a team to help rescue pets in Houston – they put together a FABULOUS report full of great pics HERE! I would give without getting pics back – but this was a bonus to see them in action with lots of furry friends!

Watercoloring with Delicata Ink – a card and Bible journal page

Watercoloring with Delicata Ink – a card and Bible journal page

Delicata ink pads are certainly beautiful to stamp with – they have lots of shimmer and shine to them. I’ve used the Gold for quite some time – but Imagine Crafts sent me some other colors to try – so I did!

Watercoloring with Delicata Ink – a card and Bible journal page

In the video, the first few minutes show the card…so for those not interested in Bible journaling, just watch that first bit to see the pretty floral card. Bible journalists – you might want to pick up some of these inks because they don’t go through the paper! There’s even a black shimmer that has some good contrast to it – so it might be something you’d want to try if you stamp much in your Bible. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The Bible page came out soft and pretty – that background watercoloring, then stamping and painting with all that shimmer. Yum! And please do consider jumping in for the 30daysofbiblelettering.com challenge – whether you post your creations on Instagram or not. I’ve done just wording in notebooks, so you don’t have to do a fancy project. Just get some practice in! (And keep an eye out…one of the devotions this time is by me!)

Christmas Bible Journaling

Christmas Bible Journaling

 

Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to
those on whom his favor rests.
Luke 2:14

Today I have a simple treat for you…a page in my Interleaved Bible. I pray you all have a beautiful celebration with your friends and family!

Christmas Bible Journaling

While it just didn’t seem right to do a voiceover (and a 3 hour video!) for Christmas, below are a few notes regarding the creation of this page. Or…just watch this very short video, and get back to your family celebrations! See it in HD on YouTube HERE.

Process Narrative & supply links

There’s no voiceover, but I’ve included some notes about what I did as I wrote up the supply list.

  1. No page prep was used here – nor do I ever prep pages. Watercolor pencil doesn’t go through the paper.
  2. This is an Interleaved Journaling Bible  – it has a blank page in between every other page on the same Bible paper. It means this Bible is double the thickness of other Bibles since it has twice the paper.
  3. I used Museum Aquarelle pencils for this page, and sorry – I didn’t write down the colors.
  4. I spread the color only with baby wipes. I had two handy, one wetter and another drier, depending on whether I wanted a watery or chalky look. This keeps moisture to a dull roar on the thin paper.
  5. I ironed the page in between different stages, both to dry it and flatten it.
  6. Layers of color build up to intensify on the page; this works with many brands of watercolor pencils.
  7. The white paint is just acrylic, and the brush is a #6 round. I used a white pencil to sketch in the lettering before starting to paint.
  8. If you want more info on Bible Journaling, there’s an inexpensive class HERE.

Have a merry Christmas!
