A Little Mixed Media Fun Goes a Long Way in Your Journaling Bible

Two pages of mixed media fun have stretched out into eight pages of my Journaling Bible recently. I learned the basic technique of making a mixed media page and then cutting out letters from it during a gathering of other Bible journalers I met at an event posted on the Bible Journaling Association’s calendar page. I drove about an hour from my house on a Saturday morning for the event, and it was so worth it. There’s something about actually being in a room with other people who enjoy Bible journaling that is really special. The leader was very welcoming, and she gave an excellent talk about the peace from God that comes when we call out to Him. The peace of God can guard our hearts and minds when believers take our concerns to Him. You might be wondering what exactly I am talking about when I say “mixed media.” The picture here is what I made that morning.

After that dried, we did some stenciling, stamping, and washi tape applying on the page. We finished the pages with Neocolor 2 Crayons and splashes of paint. The two hour event was just enough time for the devotional and the mixed media technique. After I got the pages home, I have used them to cut out lots of letters and shapes to glue into my Journaling Bible. This technique is pretty simple, but it does look awesome. If you make two pages of mixed media randomness, you can stretch out those pages for tons of ideas. I also think of these pages in my Journaling Bible as a way of commemorating a morning that I want to remember: my first time attending a Bible journaling event in person!
