0 Distress Ink Watercolor Fawn Video Tutorial

My first ever video tutorial!!  I wasn't brave enough to talk through it (yet) so I played some happy music and displayed tips on screen.  I painted a cute little fawn with a pretty pink background!  I wanted to keep it simple to see how it would go!! I admit, it was kinda fun!!



I'd like to ask your opinion on video editing software (for Windows 7). I used the free Windows Movie Maker software to make this video, but I feel like it was limited in it's features.  What's your favorite video software?  I'd like to do some investigating and find something new!
Hope you like it!

1 Bible Journaling Freebie - Genesis 1:24 - Living Creatures

Genesis 1:24 And God said, let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds.
I found this adorable photo of these two sibling foxes in a 2015 Audubon calender.  So full credit for photo goes to them and their photographer Daniel M. Jones.
So often, for Genesis 1, we see the world shape.  I wanted to focus on a different verse and when I read verse 24 I knew I wanted to draw some cute animals! =)


To start I traced the basic outline of the foxes and the main lines such as the eyes, nose, mouth.  All the fur outlines I drew afterwards.  For this project I started with a sheet of graphite paper and my drawing (you will be using the PDF I've made for you)  Turn to your bible page and place your graphite sheet face down and make sure it stays in place.  After you have cut your image out from your PDF file then use some washi tape to tape your image to the back of your graphite paper.

Then begin to trace your image.  I find that a ball point pen works best.  You can also use a different color pen to see where you have already drawn.
Here is my finished drawing.  You can also trace the verse words in the same way at this time if you wish.
Here are a couple of the colored pencils that I used.  2 browns and a gray/black.

I used the photo as my guide for color!

I usually like to start with the eyes!

Then filled in some darks.

Then started in on some earthy browns.






I used a fine pen to swish on some wiskers!


I used some white acrylic paint and a tiny paintbrush to add some highlights in places.


This is where I drew on the verse words.

Then I went over it with my drawing pens.


Colored in some letters and used a metallic pen on the word GOD.

Close up of these two cuties!

0 Under His Wings You Will Find Refuge - Bible Journaling Free Download

Psalms 91:4    He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
What a comfort this verse is.  I wanted to make some large majestic golden wings over these pages. 


I knew I was going to be using some watercolor pencils so I started with some Medium Matte Gel.  I love this stuff cause it dries clear!  Of course you can also use Gesso!  (Gesso is available in White, Black and Clear).  I put a piece of paper below each of my pages to protect the pages below.

You have a few choices for what kind of texture you want.

 You can use a credit card or membership card to spread the Gel over your pages.  This will give you a more bumpy texture with ridges here and there.

 You can also use a make up sponge for a smoother texture.  Or, you can use one of the craft sponge paintbrushes.  It won't be perfectly smooth, but pretty close.  If I were using the Gel or Gesso on a more durable surface and wanted it super smooth I would sand it with super fine grit sandpaper or sanding block.  But that is not recommended for your bible pages at this point (until I try it and see how my pages hold up)!! =)


 After your Gel or Gesso has dried, put your printed image below the page and you can still see clearly enough to trace your image.

Next, use your favorite waterproof pen and trace your images!

 I started coloring in my feathers with Distress Ink Wild Honey.  I left the tips empty to fill them in with Mustard Seed.

Coloring on top of Gel is a bit different if you haven't done this before.  Your color kind of "floats" on the surface.  It doesn't exactly blend like you might be used to.

I used Distress Ink Rusty Hinge to fill in some of the shadows.  Then used a paper tortillon to kind of smear it in together.  A paper tortillon is just paper that is rolled up really tightly into a point, great for smooshing and blending! =)  You can find them in the art section at Hobby Lobby, I've seen them in Walmart's art section too.

Here are my finished feathers!

Then finally, I wanted to give them a hazy pink aura, so I colored around it with my pink watercolor pencil and blended it in with my damp brush.  I really like how these wings turned out!
