I finally got a journaling bible! I am so excited to finally be able to create artwork right beside the word of God. I highly recommend the Blessed is She Journaling Bible for those looking for one.
So this morning I pulled out my daughter and I’s journaling bibles, and we each did an entry for The Epiphany.
I started by using gesso to prep the page. That keeps ink and such from bleeding through to the next page. Then I stamped the star and holy family from the Night in Bethlehem stamp set. I absolutely love this set, and was so happy to see it make the carry over list.
Next, I used gelatos for the light and sky around the star and the holy family. I used my finger to slightly blend them.
Finally, I used our awesome markers for the writing. They had no problem writing over the gesso. I used the duet banner punch to create a stencil for the banner I drew.
Here are the Stampin’ Up! supplies I used:
