Sentiment:  Congrats on the cute new poop machine.

Bible Journal Girl ~ Today is a Gift

** For the Unity blog hop post, scroll down or click HERE. **

** For the CardMaker / Craftin Desert Divas blog hop post, scroll down or click HERE. **

Today, I am sharing another bible journal page.

Sentiment:  Today is a gift.

For this page, I combined stamping, coloring and rub-on embellishments.
For the girl, I used Copic markers and fine liner pens on trimmed cardstock.  When I color with Copics, I always do so on a separate paper piece because of the bleed through of the ink.
I do this with stamping sometimes too, depending on the ink used.

I used a sheet of decorative rub-on embellishments that easily added a pretty background for this planner girl and sentiment.

If you would like to see more of my bible journaling projects, click bible journal.
I documented different techniques while experimenting with decorating on the thin bible pages.

Here is a quick tip video of this planner girl page.

Supplies:  Unity Stamp Co. Planner Gal:  Today, Copic markers, cardstock, Fancy Pants Designs rub-ons, My Creative Bible, Staedtler Triplus Fineliner pens.
