For today’s entry, I took one of my black pens and marked out the passage of scripture I was using. I used some white acrylic paint and scraped it one with an old gift card to get a thin layer across most of my page, making sure to avoid the highlighted scripture. I used the white to knock back some of the lines since this journaling bible had some pretty dark journaling lines and I wanted to make that less visible.
Next I added some of the fun acrylic paint colors from Targets Handmade Modern line in coral, hot coral and shell, which I found paired well with the peachy pink tones in the Simple Stories “Romance” collection that came with this months kit. I used the same scraping technique and added some color to the top corner so that I could make room for my stamp.
Using an acrylic block and my versa fine pigment ink pad, (in black) I stamped out the “Hello My Name Is” box from the stamp set from Sweet n’ Sassy Stamps Creative Worship set by the same name. Make sure to let this dry really well! Pigment inks on top of acrylics seem to take forever to dry and I am very impatient so I will normally grab my heat tool and dry it faster that way.
Next I used the word “child” from the stamp set and placed it inside the frame and used one of the included phrases to place underneath the frame. I stamped all these with my black pigment ink, and it does require drying. You could also use archival ink, in this instance since it won’t bleed through your bible page because of the layer of acrylic paint underneath it.
I journaled some of my favorite phrases from the chapter of “Fierce Hearted” that really spoke to me. Things like: “childlike faith is way messier than I thought it to be.” I added a few of the more child like stickers from the collection and used a date stamp to include todays date. Lastly, I layered a couple paper pieces and added a couple more stickers to create a clustered tab to finish off this entry. I really enjoyed making a mess with big bold stripes of color and letting my inner child enjoy time in the Word playing creatively.
Thanks for stopping by! Stay tuned for more entries from this series.
