Last month I did a complete two page spread/scene in my Bible with one stamp set and colored pencils. I LOVED using the colored pencils in my Bible and especially blending them with OMS. The Bible’s pages lend themselves so well to this medium and I couldn’t wait to use them again. That’s what I have today, another journaling page, this one more simple, using just a stamp set and colored pencils with OMS! Watch the video tutorial down below!
The first step in creating this page was to actually make a mask of the verse and pots in “The Potter” stamp set. This was going to allow me to make a long row of pots with just the three in the set. I did all of my stamping with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink which plays very nicely with colored pencils and OMS.
I decided to stamp two different sections on this one page. I stamped the verse, which I masked and then stamped the jars/pots on either side of the sentiment, using the mask I made beforehand. All of this was stamped along the left side of the page in the margin, horizontally. Then, I turned the page and started stamping on the right side of it. I stamped the ceramic woman and two of the sayings included in the stamp set above and below the figurine.
I HIGHLY suggest watching the video above for all the details and a few tips and tricks on the coloring. Coloring with colored pencils and OMS is so simple and easy. You simply put down some color from your pencil and then use your blending stumps, which you dip in the OMS, to blend out the color. You can just use one pencil or blend a few together and although the OMS does make the paper a bit translucent at first, it goes back to it’s original opaqueness once the OMS evaporates. Once it dries you will be left with a smooth, pigment rich, beautifully blended image.
I am in love with the way this page turned out and I have to say that the Leisure Arts colored pencils were a dream to work with! I think it’s easy to see in the video just how well they blended, I had NO problems and the color choices were perfect! I didn’t feel overwhelmed at all when choosing my colors, which can sometimes happen when I have too many to choose from.
