 SA Genesis

 So you want to create and journal in your Bible margins, but are hesitant ... 
you're not alone and we'll tackle it together, from putting that pen down on the 
page of your Bible. What if you don't have a Journaling Bible? The rumors are true 
and there seems to be a nationwide shortage of the Journaling Bibles, which is not a 
bad thing, but if you don't have one, you might want to consider a Moleskin Journal/
planner. The pages are similar in weight and color and it takes out some of the anxiety of 
creating in the Bible. Once you practice and gain some confidence, then you can jump 
into the Bible. 

The first half of the workshop, Stephanie will talk about how to start and what to 
start with. Then we'll play with simple lettering, shading, coloring and a little 
stamping. The second half of the workshop we'll experiment with paints, stamps, 
additional lettering and some simple embellishments with patterned paper and 
washi tapes. BRING: Journaling Bible and/or Moleskin Journal Planner (blank or 
lined that pages can be torn out of, pencil, white eraser, assorted washi tapes

two die cut boxes and five cards for each box. Each card can be embellished as you wish with
washi, stamps, stencils and more and the boxes will hold the cards you create. This box
is also the perfect size to hold gift cards, sweets and the popular INSTAX sized instant photos.
