One of the things I enjoyed about getting together with friends to scrapbook years ago was learning techniques and generating fresh ideas from sharing with one another. You can use a lot of scrapbooking techniques & supplies in your Bible Quilting. Here’s a simple one: create a SPREAD by using two of the same templates on facing pages to tie your theme together visually.
I love learning tips from enthusiastic girls when they come for a Bible Quilting session! Here's a short video showing how my young friend uses watercolor pencils in her Bible Quilt: She makes it look so easy, doesn't she? I think I even have a set of watercolor pencils, but haven't used them this way! The baby wipe provides just enough moisture to activate smudging without being too much to bleed through the paper. If you're decorating a template, it will provide an additional layer of paper to protect the backside of the page...or you can use this technique on the template and let it dry completely before attaching to your journal page. #watercolorpencils #smudgingtechnique #coloringinmybiblequiltjournal #BQtips #biblequiltjournal #tipsandtricks If you've tried this watercolor smudging technique, please share a sample in the Comments section below!
