Ruth 1:16 - Bible Art Journaling with Colored Pencils

Ruth 1:16 is one of my favorite Bible verses and when I saw the inspirational page from Melissa (Instagram @fischtales) (Etsy: Fisch Tale Designs) I just knew I had to color this!!  I just love the shades of pink and sky blue!  It is so yummy to look at!  I used my watercolor pencils, but NO water!!  If you have a moment, check out Melissa's art! It is so inspirational, whimsical, colorful, and happy!

You Are Worth Far More Than Rubies! Bible Journaling with Gelly Roll Pens

I have recently joined a Bible Journaling group called Documented Faith. We have weekly verses that we doodle in our bibles and then share them with the group! I've been doing all kinds of Art Journlaing over the past year and have found this group to be lots of fun with great people! I've created this image set for Proverbs 31:10, "A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies".
 
For this piece I used colored pencils and a couple of Gelly Roll pens.  1st step was to print the PDF onto regular copy paper. (my printer is running out of ink!)  Then I cut out the piece that fits in the 2" column of my journaling bible.  It doesn't have to be exact just trim the piece out.

Using some washi tape (cause it's easy to remove) I taped the piece face down to the back of the page.

Since our bible pages are so thin and transparent, it is easy to see through the column area.  Next step is to trace the image as you wish.  I have a tutorial coming soon on how to transfer the image onto the whole page with graphite paper.


Here is my traced image.  I decided to wait to do the sparkles free-hand.

These are all the pens I used.
  • Micron .005
  • Signo white gel
  • Gelly Roll Gold metallic
  • Gelly Roll Red Stardust
  • Gell Roll Clear Stardust
  • Derwent Watercolor pencil (not using water) - Crimson Lake
  • Derwent Inktense Watercolor pencil (not using water) - Violet



I filled in my words at the top with the Gold metallic pen.  After it completely dried I went back around the edges with my Micron pen.  I also filled in some sparkles and went over those with a Stardust pen.

For the Rubies word I filled it in with my Red Stardust Gelly Roll Pen! Pretty!
 And finally for the pretty Ruby (my own birthstone!)  I used the Crimson Lake pencil and colored it in lightly and then darker on every other section.  Then I went over the whole jewel with my Clear Stardust Gelly Roll.  Then used the Violet pencil to fill in some drop shadow.
  

I'm pleased with how it turned out.  A very simple design.
 

I hope you will enjoy it too!  I would especially love to see how you color yours.  Please share it with me!  You can leave a link in the comment of this post, on the Tiffany Doodles Facebook page, or add your photo to the Tiffany Doodles Flickr Group!

Portable Distress Ink Palette

I found that using a piece of packaging for an ink palette works GREAT!  You just scribble your ink on with your Distress Marker.  Then pick it up with your paintbrush!  This is the best technique for when just a little dab of paint will do!  You can use this for any of your water-based markers, no matter the brand.  Or, this one is big enough to smear ink on from the Distress Ink Pad as well!  Then when you're done you can just wipe it clean with a damp paper towel or a baby wipe.  Ready to use next time!
I wanted to make mine a little prettier than just the torn edges!! So, i cleaned up the paper tears along the sides and then wrapped the edges with some pretty washi tape!  Yeah! Now, it's cute!

From kitchen table to ART table!!

I found this old kitchen table at a flea market and thought it would be perfect for a giant craft/art table! It is super heavy and has 2 leaf inserts to make it extra long!! As a dinning room table it would probably sit 8 people!  I paid $80.  I immediately knew I wanted it to be sunshine yellow! So bright and happy!  I started with the legs and primed em up.  Then painted the legs.  Next, primed the top and then painted!  I just love how it turned out!  It's definitely not a perfect paint job.  In fact, I should have painted the leaves separately but too late for that!  Anyhow, ready to cover with crafty projects!!
