Hello Everyone! Helen is here today. Bible Journaling has becoming one of the ways I can spend my time with the LORD.
I would love to share with you a Bible Journaling Page that I created using the new Color By Faith - Prayer Warrior with watercoloring technique.
Before we jump into the steps how I created this page, I'd like to share a quick tip. I did not prep my Bible Journaling page with any gesso or mod podge. After I watercoloring on it, it wrinkle, but worry not, you can always iron the page with a layer of copy paper on top of the Bible page to flatten it.
First step, I stamped directly the warrior image and sentiment on the wide margin/journaling section with waterproof archival ink. Once the ink dry, you can start adding the watercolor paint. I used my craft heater to speed up the drying :)
I picked up the watercolor paint with watercolor brush. I tried not use too much water to prevent more wrinkle or even bleeding through. I blended the colors as adding them on the page. With less water, also we can prevent pooling problem on the page that sometimes will ruin the page if we do not prep the page.
I used my craft heater to dry the page. And started the next step.
For the warrior image I colored it with watercolor pencils. I love using watercolor pencils because it is easier to color at the smaller areas and do the blending at the same time. Using a small round watercolor brush, I wet the colors and turned them into watercolor paint. Once in a while, I picked up the pigment directly on the pencils to add more color on the page and more shading.
Then I decided to add extra texture and shine on the page. Metallic Gelatos are great for this. They won't bleed through and easy for mixing medium. So, I added some of the Ice Metallic Gelatos randomly on the page and smudged it with my finger.
Then I added some plus signs here and there with my Faber Castle White Big Stamper Brush Pen. This pen also won't bleed through.
Then I drew some lines to create a box to highlight the verses from Psalms 127 with the Faber Castell Artist PITT Small Brush Pen. For me it is important to be able to read the verses that God has spoken to me.
This stamp set full of amazing images and sentiment that you can use to create a Bible Journaling page, or handmade card, or home decor, or any other craft that related with prayers and be a prayer warrior. Here's the preview of the stamp set I use today:
