World Watercolor Month - Bible Journaling Style
Topic: Painting

I signed on to a challenge to do watercolor painting every day for the month of July. A whole three days and I'm still on track! We'll see how long that lasts while I have some time away on a couple of weekends.

So far, I think the biggest challenge has been coming up with bible ideas related to the word prompts.

Day 1 - Prompt STAR

I went with a night sky in which I used salt to create random white spaces. After this was dry, I brushed away the salt and added little yellow dots to many of these spaces for stars.


After painting a grassy field to do the lettering on, I added gold glittery gel pen to just a few of the yellow dots.


Day 2 - Prompt VISION

I used my own glasses as a model for this painting. But I had to take a picture of them to work from because, with them off, I couldn't see to draw or paint them.


Day 3 - Prompt RED

I don't know why it took me so long to make the mental connection between 'red' and 'rubies'. I had been wanting to draw or paint some gemstones for a while now so this was a great time to do it.

I found a blog that gave some tips on painting gems in watercolor and used those suggestions to great effect.


It wasn't until I got these three cards lined up together that I realized that I had used the same layout for all of them.

I have been using lettering styles from the Lettering Lodge on these.
