Hello friends! I’m traveling and teaching this weekend – including a Bible journaling class. Figured it’s as good a time as any to share another technique for my fellow Bible artists!
While I created images – though simple ones – this technique can also be used for simple color washes. It’s much faster than many other mediums, and can create a textured look like this, or a softer watercolor look that you can see in the early stages in the video. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.
In any case – the Prima oil pastels used here are a good bargain for the color you get – I’m traveling with mine and a pack of baby wipes! The chart below is one I’ve shared before with the colors, in case that’s helpful for you:
More fun for ya!
First, I hope you’ll consider joining the 30 Days of Bible Journaling challenge! I’m pretty awful at the whole fancy lettering thing, but I’m going to give it a go….you can see more info about it HERE. I’ve got a mixed media pad of paper at the ready and will be playing with a variety of the pens and markers I have; try out the things you have, too, and let’s see what we learn together, ok?
Second, I went live on Periscope and Facebook live yesterday with the same stamp set I used for yesterday’s blog post – here’s a look at what it is! The animals were colored on this periscope, then the fire and ground were on Facebook Live.
And Third: the cutoff date for classes in Oakhurst next weekend have already closed, but you can still sign up for classes the weekend of July 15-17 at Stamp Fever in Orange, CA. Classes with a few spots left: Bible journaling, Floral Trifecta, Copic Hex Art, and Lawn Fawn Storybook Coloring. If these sound like fun, call the store at 714.974.3552. Hope to see you there!
