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.

Below are links to the supplies I’ve used for today’s project. Compensated affiliate links may used, which means if you make a purchase I receive a small commission at no extra cost to you. I truly appreciate your support toward the costs of running this blog! Read more.

  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!
