I’m back…sort of!

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:

  1. 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!

❤ Jillian

I picked up my brayer and gel plate here.

And my favorite neocolor source is here. I might want to pick up some new colors soon. Which ones should I get??
