Today I'm here to share with you from the new Joy Clair release- Chain Breaker and my first Bible journaling page! Well the first one that was already pre-printed in the book at least! I have a lot to learn about what is best to use and what not to use, but I'm very excited about the process and journey! I have been wanting to do it for sometime and have even asked for tips, but have always been nervous. I'm sure I'll feel more confident as time goes by and Joy Clair's stamps are sure to help me!
I started by stamping images from Chain Breaker (the chains, broken pieces and sentiment) with VersaFine ink and some (the lines form the breaking) in Faded Jeans distress oxide ink. They both left pretty dark shadowing, I will need look into "priming" my page first next time with some gesso or something. When I saw the chains in the set I knew that I wanted my chains to have a metallic look, so I grabbed some Pewter Perfect Pearls out of my stash and some water to mix it with. Once the ink was dry (waiting is important with VersaFine or it can smear) I used the perfect pearls mixed with water to watercolor my chains and broken pieces. Here is a closer look at the perfect pearls colored chains with the shimmer it adds to the image.
Once the chains were dry, I decided to write out the verse I was highlighting along the chains since it is actually on the other page and there was already a pre-printed image on that side. There are some other great sentiments with the Chain Breaker set that I'm sure will be used in the future.
Thanks for visiting, see you next time!
