I haven't posted any pictures of my Journaling Bible in a while, so I thought I'd tie one into a simple tutorial that might be helpful and fun to try in other realms as well... I did this page this morning in response to some verses that encouraged me in the Psalms. The word 'radiant' is masked using die cut Frog Tape - this particular kind is formulated for delicate surfaces, and it's perfect for cardmaking and these thinner Bible pages.
I cut the letters individually using dies from My Favorite Things (the set is called By the Letters), laying the tape right onto the cutting plate of my Big Shot. This tape is 1.88" wide, so I could cut 2 rows of letters at a time.
The excess tape peels away easily, and I have these alphabet 'stickers' left to use as masks.
I used a craft knife to pick them up and place the ones I wanted...
...then sponged PanPastels over the mask.
I added a little stamping, then sprayed a workable fixative over the page before removing the stickers. I love the boldness of these letters, and this simple way of highlighting a key word. This would be a great technique for mixed media masking as well, with the alphabet dies as well as other shapes. So many possibilities!
Have a wonderful week!
