Hello everyone, it’s Lindsey! Lately I’ve had a lot of questions about how I use patterned papers in my Bible journaling so I thought I’d share an entry using some papers and other supplies from the new Denise Collection! No process video for this one but this entry just takes a few simple steps.
I almost always start a Bible journaling entry by adding some color to the page before adding anything else. For this entry I used a makeup brush to lightly blend some marigold colored ink in the areas where I’d be adding my fussy cut florals. The makeup brush allows you to slowly build up the intensity of color and keep it softly blended out.
Next I added some florals that I fussy cut out of one of the Denise Patterned Papers. The Felicity Jane paper packs almost always have a big bold floral pattern that is great for fussy cutting and adding to your projects!
I like to add bold titles to my journaling entries so I can quickly see what the topic of that page or entry is. For this page, I used my electronic die cutting machine and a block style font to cut out “GIVE THANKS” from three different patterns and mixed them with the Denise Puffy Alphas. If you don’t have a die cutting machine, you could just roughly cut some block style alphas out of the papers by hand.
After I get all of the big elements down and my journaling, I can start adding in smaller embellishment clusters for interest. I love to stamp onto the different die cut pieces to create custom embellishments. Also, how adorable are the Denise | Charms this month!? I added some polka dot fabric to this one but they’d also be cute hanging off of a paperclip or the front of Traveler’s Notebook!
For the tab, I attached a couple of the Megan | Tiny Tags to a mini paperclip and added a couple of Denise | Puffy Stickers. I love having a fun party of textures hanging out of the top of my Bible!
That’s it! I love how the Felicity Jane kits are beautifully coordinated so I can spend less time figuring out what goes together on a Bible journaling page and more time studying the scripture and prayer journaling.
Head on over to the Felicity Jane shop and stock up on some goodies to use on your next journaling project!
Until next time!
