How are you doing this beautiful Friday? It is not only Bible Art Journaling day here on this blog, but on my other blog www.inspiredstamps.blogspot.com it is New Stamp Release day each Friday, so a very busy day for me! But a great one and one I've been wanting to share with you!
First up, let me share the Bible Art Journaling I did in my Art Journaling Bible (using the 3 new stamps that just came in the GodblessyourART etsy shop today:
Teesha Moore's Amazing 16 page Art Journal tutorial on youtube before and decided now was the right time to try it out. I LOVE IT! I linked her first part of the tutorial so you can see it.
I made the first one out of Bristol paper and the second one I made with the paper she recommends on the video. I like them both, but the Bristol paper does seem less fold friendly, but that could be my particular type of paper I picked up at Michaels.
I also got the wrong dimensions the first time around because my paper wasn't big enough. But different sized pages are always welcome in a journal I am working in, so I just went with it.
I have painted all the pages with Golden's Liquid Acrylic paints and begun to sketch in with pencil how I think I'm going to progess with the first page and some on the title page. I'll take photos of these each week to add to my Friday post to show you the progress I've made and how I'm doing these pages. I also cut some to make them more interesting inside. And, I never like the painting I do at the start, but the pages won't look much like they do now when I'm finished so if you find the same thing, try not to worry about the underpaintings you do: Here it is closed (stays very flat, surprisingly):
May God bless your HEART...and you ART!

Some people collect shoes; I collect journals. I love them all...big ones, small ones, round ones, ones to write in, watercolor paper ones, and on and on. I usually see decorating the front cover as delicious as licking the frosting off the spoon, it's such a wonderful time! Today was no different!
I have a MOLESKEINE SQUARED notebook (large)---I got mine with a gift card at the book store but found this link in case you want to see it better HERE. It's perfect to practice lettering or drawing in (I know mine is for lettering and I have others for drawing, but it all kinda happens at the same time for me so don't be surprised if I post pages of this in the future and there is a sketch of an upcoming Hymn Girl stamp in there lol).
I put Golden's Liquid acrylic in white on parts of it because I intended to keep it black and white and just write LETTERING on the front. But that didn't happen so I ended up putting shiny liquid acrylics in pink and blue over the dried white:
Here's the blue I used.
Here's the journal:

I'll be back Friday afternoon/evening with my Bible Art Journaling post and I'll give you the link I used to make this particular journal (I can't stop making these and I know some of you will have to make some too!)
