I'm not much of the type of person that can write and draw in my Bible, it just doesn't feel right to me. I remember as a kid my Mom caught me with some crayons coloring in hers and she scolded me pretty bad. I guess that's probably why it makes me feel uncomfortable, like I am doing something wrong. If you're like me, you can still use the amazing Illustrated Faith products in a companion journal or even for your card making endeavors.
Today I wanted to share this colorful card I created with the Bella BLVD acrylic paints and the Friendship Die Cut shapes.
Here's a quick video showing how I created the background. You'll need mixed media paper, water, a non-stick surface and kosher salt.
Once my papers were dry, I trimmed them to 4 3/4" x 6 3/4", rounded the corners and wrapped a piece of olive green ribbon around the center before I attached it to my card blank. Then I added the sprigs of leaves and the flower box -- which was on 1/8" thick foam tape.
The final step was to cut the sentiment from an old hymnal and glue it to the pretty flower square using a glue stick. If you were working in your companion journal you could easily create some found poetry to convey the parts of the Bible that you were thinking about.
