Created to Create 2 Bible Journaling & Unboxing

img_8973
This kit y’all! I’m so grateful for the heart of Shanna Noel and the team at DaySpring for another kit with this theme. The first Created to Create Kit was crazy popular when it came out a year and a half ago. I expect this one to be a favorite too!

You can watch my unboxing over on Periscope and I shared a fun tip for making foam stamps. I learned it from Shanna, so it seems only fitting to share it with this kit!

Then because I had to jump in right away and create 😉 I hopped on Instagram live and stamped and painted a little. I’ve sped it up because we were quite chatty – and really, the technique is sooo easy that I think you’ll catch on speedy fast!

I used my favorite technique of adding white gesso to the page with an Illustrated Faith paint card. When added this way, you can achieve light coverage that is still easily read through. But the pay off is huge because of the contrast of the watercolor on the white. I buy mine at Michaels (with a coupon!).

By the way, I like using parchment paper under the page when working. I can reuse a piece many times and I’ve also recycled these used pages for my pages too! You can find it at a dollar store or if you go in with a group (because 500 sheets?! woah!)  this is a great buy from Amazon. And if you teach Bible Journaling, it’s perfect for taking to classes!

I used the original Homespun Alpha stamps for my page. There are only a few minor changes with the set you can now purchase at DaySpring. And they match this kit perfectly! But so do the stickers that are on sale!! All the Heart Eyes!


Oh yeah… There’s a pretty fantastic sale going on right now at DaySpring, so it’s time to stock up on some favorites! The sale goes through September 5th, 2017.
