Get set!

As promised, this is the materials list for next week's periscope tutorials.  I encourage you to shop your stash first- you will likely have most of the items already. You may want to make a trip to the craft store to grab some scrapbook paper.

  • Scrapbook paper-
    • 2-3 sheets of a floral print
    • 2-3 sheets of coordinating paper of a light color (pale yellow, light blue, pastel pink, etc.)
  • Notebook paper or graph paper- just a few pages, you can tear them right out of your spiral :)
  • White acrylic paint- any craft acrylic will do
  • Watercolor pencils
  • A few different coordinating washi tapes- I used black and white stripes, a gold stripe, and black glitter.'
  • Black pen (I use Sakura Micron and Prismacolor Premier Pens, both you can purchase in sets or individually.
  • Fine paintbrush 
Extra stuff:
  • Paper towels or facial cotton pads 
  • A little dish of water
  • Scissors
  • A sheet of plastic to place between pages
  • Glue- preferably Aleen's Tacky Glue
  • Your fingers- this is a little messy!
See you next week!  Can't wait!

Here are some examples of floral prints just perfect for this project:

Get Ready!

Hello, creatives!

I'm planning on broadcasting the tutorials for this layout next week on periscope while I'm on Christmas vacation- date and time tbd. I'll be recreating this design style on the back inside cover end papers, but don't feel that you need to have a journaling Bible to participate. You can work in a hymnal, a blank journal, or even on a separate piece of card stock to hang on your gallery wall!

The tutorials will be in two parts. One for the background and one for the embellishments and both will be uploaded to my blog afterward.  The materials list will be posted in a few days if you'd like to follow along and create with me!

Merry Christmas!
