I'm so excited to be back here with more to share in my Art Journaling Bible while studying the Gospel of John with She Reads Truth. I also wanted to share some pointers with you and answer a few questions I've received from last week about some of the supplies I use.
JOHN 3Last week I shared with you the first half of what I did for John 3 and really focused on Nicodemus. This week I'm turning the page and sharing my favorite quote from the week and our memory verse for the week. I'm really trying to take this verse to heart this week.
JOHN 4There is just so much to take from these chapters and verses and this book. So many examples of Jesus being the Messiah, telling us to follow HIM, and trust HIM and learn from his example. God make me more like you with my neighbors and in my relationships.
JOHN 5Gosh, I LOVE this study! This is probably another favorite this week... Obedience isn't just about obeying a command, it's about drawing closer to the FATHER!!!
JOHN 6I'm having so much fun highlighting all the different miracles Jesus performs! Praise Jesus that doubt has been overcome!
JOHN 6 - part 2Lord, I'm hungry for you!
JOHN 7Such a great question to ask myself daily! I catch myself over analyzing things all the time... including my art worship... I soooo need this reminder!
JOHN 8This verse always brings me to tears. In my daily living, I always forget that I'm an adopted daughter to the KING! I'm no longer in bondage, AMEN!!!
JOHN 9This has become my new prayer... that everything I do or say will show God's audacious grace!
JOHN 10It's taken me many years to finally start to recognize his voice. I LOVE this call to action, to know him better and recognize his voice!
JOHN 11I love this conversation between Jesus and Martha. I love how she answers Jesus' question, with such confidence. "Yes Lord, I believe this."
JOHN 12Oh boy, do I ever need this daily reminder... this life on earth will end, how will I live it?
OK, now that I've shown you my pages, I want to share a few tips with you and answer a few questions about the supplies I use.
1) How to use mist without it bleeding... I found a trick and I hope you'll like this little tutorial/tip! The key to using a really wet medium like mists, is to dry it from the back as quickly as possible.
I've been using mists a lot on my pages, through stencils or just brushing it on. This makes the onion paper super wet and bleed through to the other side. I've found that if I take my heat tool to the back side of the misted page and dry it from the back, it literally disappears from the back side, right before your eyes. It's soooo cool actually!
It's thin paper so you're going to still "see" it on the back side... but there is no actual bleed through. I'm not sure if it's the kind of mist I used. I've only used Heidi Swapp Color Shine and I wonder if the shimmer is why the color doesn't bleed through and the colored shimmer is what sticks on top.
I've found that I really like using mists for highlighting my passages. I just pour some out into a bowl and then grab a paint brush, brush it on, dab the excess with a paper towel and quickly turn on the heat tool to dry from the back side.
2) The Faber-Castell Big Brush pens do not bleed! Even when I use it to write directly on my page or to color in an outline, they don't bleed. I've tested it and am very happy with this little tidbit. I have now decided I need to get the regular brush pens in all the colors of course! I will also be using them for hand lettering in addition to the stamping! LOVE them!!!
