This page started as a coloring book page ("The Word in Color" Coloring Book by Christian Art Publishers), and you can read about my spiritual journey with it on my other blog, here. When I had colored my page, using my Scroll and Brush markers, it looked like this:
I really wanted the background to be more of a blueish tint, but didn't want to take the time to shade around all the details in the image. My thought all along had been to scan in my finished picture and then print it out the size I needed to add it to my Bible page - perhaps scaling it down so it would fit in the margin. However, as I thought about wanting a blue background, I thought of how I've added some pages to my Bible, and I decided to do that with this.
I looked through my stash and found a nice light blue shimmery paper and decided to try printing on it. It printed out fine, but I was concerned the ink might not dry thoroughly on that type of paper, and I didn't want to take the chance of letting it smear. So, I covered the whole with clear embossing powder and heat set it. That gave a bit of texture and a lovely sheen to the page. I then cut it to size, added it to my Bible with a piece of Zip adhesive, added my washi tape tab (book of the Bible hand lettered with a fine line Sharpie on it), and my page was done. I really was happy with how quickly and easily this page came together.
