Bible Journaling | Words | Patricia Roebuck | Video September 12, 2019 07:00

Hello Everyone!  This is Patricia to share a project using JustNick Word cut files.  This inspired me to use the cut files for Bible Journaling!  Since the pages are thin and I don't have too much wiggle room for bulky embellishments, word and, in this case, alphas as well, create the color, texture, and even dimension while keeping the entry relatively flat.

Combining my thoughts on this first chapter in Daniel, I started building my idea by choosing phrases JustNick had available that would work with this entry.  I used 'Captured' from the Hashtags 1 cut file.

The Word 'heart' from the Love List Cut File.

And then used a combination of alpha cut files to form the rest of the journaling, using the Outline Alpha for the 'BUT.'

The Script Alpha for 'a.'

And the Type It Alpha for 'god.'

Working in the Silhouette Studio software allowed me the option to resize and make sure the cut files would fit within the margins.

I wanted to draw attention to 'captured' first, cutting it from black cardstock and fitting it in an area with more space was perfect.  I also emphasized it with using gelatos layered under it.

As I cut my phrases and letters, I focused on bold, contrasting colors.  The black is always wonderful for this, and I still used a little bit for the outline of the 'but,' but then brought in some bold pattern papers to cut from.

To prime my page, I first used Clear Gesso, then used more gelatos to create a pattern along the margin before adhering the stickers, phrases, and words.

Using cut files for your Bible journaling is a great way to create a bold entry without the bulk, you use up your cardstock and pattern papers in ways you may not have thought before.  

I have a process video you can watch below, or in HD on my YouTube channel here showing how this came together.  Thank you for stopping by and hope this inspires you to use your cut files for any project!
