Hey, friends! It has been quite a while since I’ve posted on here. When I was pregnant with my second little one I had to let this space go, but now I’m considering sharing here regularly-ish again 🙂
A lot has changed since I last posted here (like a new child!) so I thought it would be fun to share a few roundups of what I’ve been enjoying lately. Sound good? Great!
Most recently I’ve been experimenting with (and loving!) a gel plate. It is SO fun! Below you can follow my progression in “proficiency” with these new-to-me tools in the following videos:
- Creative Play | My first attempt with the plate, paint and brayer was…interesting. I got to blend some beautiful colors though and break in some new Illustrated Faith butterfly stamps. Win-win.
2. Salvaging My Creative Play | That time I tried to use my gel plate in my Bible journaling, but things didn’t go as planned. Instead I turned trash into…well, you’ll just have to check it out! 😀
3. Bible Journaling with Gel Plates & Neocolors | OK, so I think I finally have the hang of this gel plate thing. AND I got to play with neocolor water soluble crayons (which I need to do more!)
4. Word Nerd Traveler’s Notebook Process | I love Word Nerd from Illustrated Faith and decided to document this year’s words in a TN! I’m using similar techniques from my previous gel plate Bible page, this time in my traveler’s notebook insert 🙂
I’ll be sure to share more gel plate adventures here. It is SO fun and I’m H-O-O-K-E-D! What new-to-you techniques or tools are you experimenting with?
See you soon!
P.S. For more information about Word Nerd head here.
Check these out for my favorite traveler’s notebook inserts!
And my favorite neocolor source is here. I might want to pick up some new colors soon. Which ones should I get??
