The Summer 2016 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine featured one of my favourite Bible Art Journaling pages designed by Christy Riopel. The title of the art journal page was “Be Strong and Courageous”. The page was filled with bright colours of ink and layers of stenciling and stickers. A beautiful art journal page that makes me smile each and every time I turn through the pages of our Summer 2016 issue.
The Bible Art Journal Page
Basic Step By Steps
Prep your page by using a brayer to apply a thin layer of clear gesso. This lets you see the words on the page, but stops any wet mediums you put on top from soaking through the page.
Take a Ranger distress ink pad, and rub it directly onto the page. Don’t worry about covering all the areas. Just get some colour down.
Use a wet baby wipe to blend and spread the ink. Any areas you missed with clear gesso will take on more colour, adding to the painty look. Allow it to air dry.
Remove the stencil very carefully, and repeat on several parts of your page.
Add paper pieces by adding a layer of Ranger mat gel medium to the back of your cut out. Then place on your Bible page and cover with a thin layer of gel medium. You can attach bits of Bo Bunny patterned paper and die cuts like this.
To stop stickers from peeling off your journal page, you can rub a little gel medium over top of them to seal them in.
Lastly, add some Bo Bunny stamped images in the background will add dimension.
