Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to
those on whom his favor rests.
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.
- No page prep was used here – nor do I ever prep pages. Watercolor pencil doesn’t go through the paper.
- 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.
- I used Museum Aquarelle pencils for this page, and sorry – I didn’t write down the colors.
- 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.
- I ironed the page in between different stages, both to dry it and flatten it.
- Layers of color build up to intensify on the page; this works with many brands of watercolor pencils.
- 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.
