Hi everyone, Mou here with a Bible Journaling tutorial using the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Bible Journaling Kit. 

SUPPLIES:

 

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Bible Journaling Kit

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents & Tools - Gel Medium, GlazeGesso, Whipped Spackle, Gelatos Tool Kit

Scissors

Watercolor paper (I used 140 lb cold press by Canson, cut to 9x9 inches)


FCDMC_April2018_BlogTutorial_BibleJournalingKit_MouS

The Bible I have does not have a wide margin, so I make color copies of the verses, trim around with scissors and attach to a wider piece of watercolor paper with Gel Medium. You may not need to do this step if your Bible is designed for journaling.

Apply Gesso around the verse and even layer on parts of the verse that you don't plan to focus on. Let dry.

Add some color to the page using the highlighter Gelatos from the kit. Blend with water.


FCDMC_April2018_BlogTutorial_BibleJournalingKit_MouS

Lay the stencil Trust His Path on the page and apply Whipped Spackle with a palette knife.


FCDMC_April2018_BlogTutorial_BibleJournalingKit_MouS

Doodle a frame around your chosen verse with a PITT pen.


FCDMC_April2018_BlogTutorial_BibleJournalingKit_MouS

Cut out a phrase from the kit with scissors to attach to the page. Add a diecut or sticker to decorate.


FCDMC_April2018_BlogTutorial_BibleJournalingKit_MouS

Rub some more Gelatos colors on and blend it with a coat of glaze over the whole page. Let dry completely.


FCDMC_April2018_BlogTutorial_BibleJournalingKit_MouS

Doodle some feathers around the verse with PITT pen.


FCDMC_April2018_BlogTutorial_BibleJournalingKit_MouS

Handletter the verse near the framed verse and doodle a frame around it with the Metallic Gold PITT pen. Make marks and add more touches of gold all around the page to finish.

Bible Journaling with Faber Castell

Hey Design Memory Crafters!! I'm Lindsay with seeLINDSAY and I'm going to show you how easy it is to use the Bible Journaling Kit from Faber-Castell®.  Bible Journaling with Faber Castell-1-5

Bible journaling is one of the easiest ways to personalize your favorite scriptures. This kit is also essential because it comes with everything you need plus a booklet to sketch a picture out before you decide to put it in your scriptures. 

The Bible Journaling Kit includes 2 Gelatos® and 2 Gelatos highlighters, 2 PITT® Artist pens in gold and black, an artist sketch book, different die cuts and several stencils. I also used some Texture Luxe to  smear metallic colors on the bottom of the page. 

Bible Journaling with Faber Castell-1-4

I began by mixing some additional colors of Gelatos I had on hand with the ones included in the Bible Journaling Kit to get a pallet that I loved. I just smeared some on the page towards the bottom and used my blending tool to make it smooth. Once that was the tones I wanted, I added my Texture Luxe with a palette knife and just wiped it across the page. I saved a small area so that I could use the included stencil with the Texture Luxe as well.

Bible Journaling with Faber Castell-1-3

I layed down my stencil, once the Texture Luxe was dry, at the top of my page and started tracing it with the black PITT marker. I then mixed up some Gelatos with some Gel Medium and blended it together with my Palette Knife. I just started spreading it evenly over my included stencil and didn't care if I made the flowers two-toned or how they ended up look altogether. I wanted a real rustic look on this piece of my bible. I then removed the stencil and allowed it all to dry.

Bible Journaling with Faber Castell-1


I then used the black and gold PITT Artist Pens that were included in the Bible Journaling Kit and added the phrase "I will go, I will do". Now when I open my scriptures I have a sentiment that is near and dear to my heart that I have always loved. I have always loved these words and I strive to go and do when He would have me do.
