Total disclaimer for this video and post – this entire Bible page that I journaled was one big experiment! There are quite a few mistakes, but I left in the video so you could learn from ALL of mine and not make the same ones. If you want to see how you can add foiling to your journaling pages you can find the full video tutorial down below!
Aside from foiling in this video I also shared how to use a brush to blend out your OMS and colored pencils. The majority of the time when I use colored pencils and OMS together I use paper blending stumps as my tool for blending. However, you can use a brush to easily blend out the color in your Bible! It keeps a bit of the brush strokes in your coloring for more texture, which is great for the Living Water stamp set I used today.
Moving onto the foiling let me fill you in on how I added the foiling. I used the same Living Water stamp set and decided to foil my verse. 1st mistake – do not foil anything with a lot of detail with this technique. I did fix this, but if you don’t make the mistake you won’t have to fix it!
Next, I stamped with Versamark and clear heat embossed. After heat setting the clear embossing powder it was time to add the foil. I decided to use my straightener to add the foil. This worked but you need to watch the heat. The first time I tried to add the foil and it completely melted the EP into the paper. After turning down the heat and using “carrier sheets” I was able to get the foil to stick, but again it was much too detailed of a stamp for this technique. So to fix this mistake I stamped AGAIN on top of the copper foil in Versamark, but this time I heat embossed in copper embossing powder. This made the foil act as a background for the verse and helped finish off the page!
I really hope you found the video tutorial helpful. It is full of mistakes, but I did want to share with you how I made it work in the long run! I know in cardmaking, if you mess up horribly you can just throw the paper away, but with Bible journaling, once it’s there, it’s there, so you need to be creative about how you fix your mistakes.
