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.
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.
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.
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.

Hey friends! Adrianne Surian here with you today, and I'm excited to share a project using the new Gelatos® Colors Highlighters They are a perfect solution to highlight all of your bright ideas. I'm using mine on this poetic jewelry box combining the Classic Robert Frost poem "The Road Not Taken" and a sassy spring selfie.
The highlighter Gelatos Colors are awesome for journaling and for planner pages, but don't forget that pages aren't limited only to books when it comes to mixed media! Paper can be applied to so many surfaces to give you a truly personal and unique piece.
I picked up this little chest of drawers on a whim while shopping, and I knew it was a perfect item to that I could personalize. After all, my ego isn't so big that I could put my face on just anything! But this little chest of drawers tucked away in my bedroom is a great way to remind myself that self-confidence is always in style.
The techniques used on this project are simply decoupage and stenciling, in addition to a little bit of minor hardware installation (for the knobs). I trimmed my paper to match the size of the shelves and the face of the three drawers, and I used Glaze to decoupage the image and text onto the front surface. You don't have to print an image here! You can use plain white paper, wrapping paper, napkins, or anything you like! When you're decoupaging, it is easier to adhere thinner papers rather than card stock or photo paper, so I wouldn't try anything too heavy.
To keep the front face all as one image, I closed the drawers to begin working . I used the Ice Layers floral stencil in addition to the mixed media stencils that are included in the Gelatos Highlighter set. I also added in the brick and herringbone mixed media stencils from the 101 stencil collection to give the piece a little variety.
You may need to sand the edges of your drawers or the openings if you have any papers that don't line up exactly. Even if not, it's likely you'll want to cover the bare wood edges. I used a small amount of black acrylic paint along the bottom base, and then around each of the edges to give it a more industrial look. Depending what look you're going for, you may want something softer and less bold. But that's the great thing about art - you can make it your own! Follow your own instinct to create something meaningful to you.
Finally, I used a drill to drill a small hole in each of the drawers. You can use a Dremel tool or any power drill for this. The hole only needs to be as large as the screw on the knobs you select. Installing the knobs puts the final touch on your jewelry box!
As a child of the 80's, I cannot love this project enough, and the poem inspires me every day. It's a piece of art that adds inspiration to my morning routine! The size is perfect for jewelry pieces, lip balm, hair ties, nail polish - all those small items that need organization. If you're inspired by this project, leave a comment! I'd love to know what kind of piece you'd like to turn into a work of art!

Hello there, a very Happy April to you all!
Today I want to share with you an art journal page that was inspired by a fortune cookie using Gelatos® Color IRIDESCENTS Comet.
Let's start with the supply list.
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Essential PITT Artist Pens BLACK
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stencils 101 10 ct Collection
Other: mixed media paper, found papers, lace, thread, sewing machine, foam stamp, die-cuts, paint brushes
Let's get started.
Rub Gelatos® Color IRIDESCENTS Comet, Nebula, Satellite and Blue Moon on mixed media paper or your own art journal.
Blend with water. Wet a foam stamp with water and color it with Gelatos colors Nebula and Satellite. Stamp a few times on the page.
Sew a piece of lace at the top of the page.
With Gel Medium attach pieces of found papers all around the page.
Place stencil on page and trace the shapes with PITT Artist pen. Repeat in at least two other areas of the page.
Attach some die-cuts and more found papers to the page with Gel Medium.
Rub some Black Hole Gelatos on a palette or craft mat. Dilute a bit with water to create your own "ink". Use the ink to brush letter the prompt, which in this case is a fortune from a fortune cookie.
With a palette knife apply some Whipped Spackle to add texture to the page. Let dry.
And there you have it, the finished art journal page!
