Bible Journaling with stencils!

Good Morning Creatives!
Keri Sallee here and I am BEYOND happy to be sharing my first design team post for Rita. She is not only an amazing artist but also a great friend and fantastic person. I am so honored to be on her team and help her reach her dreams!!

Today I am sharing a recent bible journaling page I made using Rita’s 6×6 “Sweet Sisters Heart” Stencil. I followed the exact directions on the back (1) Trace (2) Connect the lines (3) Color and Add Details! It’s really that easy!

I started by prepping my Bible page with some clear gesso. I find this serves 3 purposes (1) Strengths my page from getting fragile when I add water (2) minimizes bleed through of my colored products and (3) allows my mediums to move more freely over my page.


My colors of choice for this page are Derwent Inktense Blocks. They are GREAT for mixed media bible journaling because they are solids that are activated with water and once dry, they are permanent. This means you can add lots of layers and not worry about messing with you colors!

I finished up my girl with a black fine point sharpie.


I hope you enjoyed today’s project. I’ll see you next time!!

XOXO,
KERI
