If-then Promise {Bible Art Journaling}

I love this verse (well, okay, I love all of them), especially because it contains an if-then promise that seems like a win-win for me! If I confess my sins, God is faithful and just to forgive my sins and to cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Wow. That’s powerful right there.

I sketched this and then colored with Inktense watercolor pencils, as they become permanent when dry, and they remain transparent so that the words of the text remain readable.

I am so in love with your art work in your bible! As I start to work on my bible when I color in something I can't seem to see through it to what the bible says, what do you use to color in like what you used on the rubber duckie?! It is just so beautiful!

Thank you so much, Amanda Katherine! What a high compliment! First, I prep all my Bible pages with Art Basics Clear Gesso (first choice--hard to find) or Matte Medium (either gel or fluid, but gel works best). Then, there are several media you can use that is transparent, but my favorite (and what I used on the duck) is Inktense Watercolor Pencils, applied with a damp brush. It is permanent when dry. Any watercolor is transparent, but I love the Inktense because of the permanence. Nothing bleeds through the page if prepped as stated here. Hope this helps and would be glad to answer any more questions.
