Me and My House

This Bible journaling piece is fairly simple.  To read about it's inspiration, check Me and My House on my other blog.  I started by preparing the page with clear gesso (Art Basics) as usual.  The rest is just some lettering & a house illustration:

House Illustration:
  • Stamped using my navy Scroll & Brush marker to color the house stamp (from HOTP "Welcome Home stamp set.
  • Colored with gelatos - scribbled on my craft sheet, made into a "paint" & painted with a water brush.  The blue used 3 colors - one a shimmery one.  I also used the the dark yellow.

  • I created a mock-up on my computer using fonts I liked - then traced them using the fine tip of one side of the "scroll" part of the Navy Scroll & Brush Marker.
  • "Choose Today" words were colored in using gelatos as for the house illustration.
  • Reference & date added with a fine-point Sharpie.
The other thing I did - which you can't see in this picture - was to highlight the text itself using the same yellow gelato solution used on the house & "TODAY".
