Mixed Media Tin for hand lettering!

Hi friends! Chelsea here to show you how to make a beautiful hand lettered watercolor piece! 

 

The products we'll be using today come from the Faber-Castell mixed media tin. You'll also want some mixed media paper, and painters tape for the edges.

 

First things first, tape down the edges of your paper so you'll have a nice, clean border. Then start scribbling with your watercolor pencils! Here I'm using the light blue, dark blue, purple, and pink.

Next, take a wet paintbrush, and blend the colors together.

Once dry, peel off the tape, and grab your Pitt Artist  brush pen (I used Cold Grey VI 235), and letter whatever quote/phrase you'd like.

Now it's time to add the highlights! Take your white watercolor pencil, and add a small detail anywhere you'd naturally see light shine on the letters, to really make your letters pop.

Bible Journaling

Hey friends! Happy Sunday! I have another Bible process page to share with you today and I’m kind of in love with the verses I focused on. I chose Psalm 91:4-5. You’ve probably heard it before and so had I, but when I read through it a couple more times it really started to speak to me. Go read it a few times through and see what jumps out at you each time. It sure does have a whole lot of meaning and truth! I’m so happy that our God makes these kinds of promises to us. With the symbolism and imagery in this verse I for sure decided to journal with a feather theme!

I found this stencil in one of the Faber Castell stencil packs and I tried a new technique with it. I usually use paint with stencils but this time I reached for a pitt pen and traced over the outlines. Afterwards it looks like it was hand drawn and has a really cool effect.

I found some feather stamps in my stash, and as I’ve said before I love clustering and layering, so these were perfect to stamp around and on the stencil. I used a couple different colors of ink pads so there were a variety of colors.

Big brush pens are some of my favorite supplies to use when journaling. I used the black big brush pen and made dots and tiny crosses around the page to add more detail.8

This is probably my favorite element I added! I took a craft feather and washi taped it down to make an even bigger cluster of feathers at the bottom of the page.9

My next two steps were adding some marks to the cross and dot clusters as well as highlighting my verse. I always highlight my verse so when I’m flipping through pages, I know exactly what I was reflecting on when journaling.

This was a new technique I tried! I usually mix and match alphabet stickers but I thought taking some of the different fonts on the stencils and mixing and matching those, would make a cool title! I found all the letters I needed to spell out “under” and used a black pitt pen to trace over them. I thought it turned out great!Final

The very last step was adding some more alphabet stickers to finish my title and then journaling what God was putting on my heart! I hope that you learned something new from this entry and that you found new meanings to Psalm 91:4-5! Have a blessed Sunday everyone!

Blessings,

Abigail
