Today's page was prepared with clear gesso first. To read about what this page means to me check here. This is how I created the page. I wanted to draw a picture of the ark of the covenant but was unsure how to do so with the small margins I was dealing with. Then I came across a great resource - Kidco Labs has several downloadable Bible coloring sheets - one of which I was able to shrink to create a small picture for the upper part of the margin. Here's a close-up of it:
I used several media to color this little picture. Gold Smooch ink covers the ark itself and it's carrying handles. Smooch inks also form the stones on the breastplate. Most of the rest of the picture was colored with watercolor pencils - and blended with a bit of water. The sky was colored with Glimmer Mist. I sprayed a little on my craft sheet and then applied it with a small brush.
The text was highlighted with watercolor pencil blended with Wink of Stella. The background color in the margin below the picture was colored with watercolor pencil (same color as for the path in the picture) and blended out with water. I added words using stickers I had on hand, and finished with small lettering using a fine-tipped Sharpie.
