Matthew 5:14-16...Delightful Light. It's a great set of five various lightbulbs. I spent some time reading this page spread searching for the answers to my questions...then I set out to explore His word through my hand...
Gel medium (with my finger) over the journaling edge of the paper and over the scripture I wanted to highlight. Using the Gel medium seals the paper and protects it from bleed-through on the other side. After applying Gel Medium, I moved on to adding a bit of Gesso. The Gesso helped add a bit of "grit" to the surface of the paper and also helps to make my color choices more vibrant.
PanPastels and Black Licorice Ink for the stamped image. After stamping the lightbulb images, I applied PanPastels and a bit of Copic markers for shadowing. I also used some Prismacolor pencils to add more depth with the colors. After coloring, I did a little journaling with pencil. I enjoy restating the scripture into my own words, giving myself affirmations and encouraging words. After that, I highlighted the verse with Copic Markers. When page left was done, I moved on to page right. I continued the same process added some Antique Gold Rub-n-Buff here and there and then applied some Journey Glaze over the bulbs to give them some realistic shine and dimension on the page. I allowed this to dry overnight.
Glaze shines on the page. Sparkle Dust is also applied using a bit of the Gel Medium. I tend to use a lot of gold and sparkle in my journaled pages. I just feel they represent and highlight His word perfectly.
