Bible journal page with chalk edgers

Today I am sharing a bible journal page stamped with chalk edgers.


And here is the back of the page.

You do see a slight shadow, but no more than the images that come with the book.  Still no bleed through with stamping.  This makes me a happy camper.  Hooray!!!


Please note that I am fairly new to the art part of bible journaling.   I am sharing my bible journaling art process, trials and errors along the way.
I am a card maker, and discovered quickly that what works for cards may not work on these THIN pages.  Recommendations and suggestions are welcome.

The chalks dry quickly but smudge if not dried completely.   If  watercolor is used, I recommend doing watercolor first and dry before stamping with chalk inks.

Peace Love Hope Christmas Tag or Bookmark

Here is a Christmas holiday tag in non-traditional colors.




Sentiment:  Peace Love Hope

I like to have tags like these ready for holiday gifts, wine bottles, baked gifts, decoration and more.
This one has a little blank tag at the top to write to and from.  I like to add these tiny tags so that the big tag can be reused by the recipient, if they choose to do so.

I used watercolor on this for a soft and imperfect look.

Christmas Cheer Car, Tree and Presents

This is a Christmas card in non-traditional holiday colors and with sepia tones.


Sentiment:  Sending you lots of Christmas cheer.

This new image is one of my favorites.  It's a VW Bug car filled with all things Christmas ~ a Christmas tree, gifts and a wreath.

I wanted a vintage look, so I went with sepia colors.  The background is a die-cut chevron pattern with an inlay.
