DIY: Expanding Your Bible
Is your illustrating Bible a little too chunky? I knew mine definitely would be if I added enough medium to the pages so I decided to rebind my Bible and split it into two halves. The whole process takes about an hour and is very simple to do with only a few tools.
Need some coils? Check out my Etsy shop and I'll send them right to you!
Once bound, I decorated the cover for the second half of my Bible and covered it in masking tape on both sides. You can laminate the material before hand if you have a laminator big enough!
Cover measurements: 9.75" x 9.5"
Measuring tape edge (for hole line up on cover) 1/8" from edge
Color swatching is a tool of the trade that is highly underrated.... and so is color mixing. I started a sketchbook last year of nothing but color swatches of all my pens, markers, paints, inks etc. and it has been a game changer for me when I do projects. (I even did my nail polish!)
But color mixing? There are even more possibilities than you know when you mix your mediums.
Check out the tutorial I did over on The Crafter's Workshop blog:

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
DIY: Punched Ephemera
I use stars in almost every project and where do they come from? The tiniest of all the recycled scraps- even found a hole punch that makes super itty bitty ones!
I keep them in this jewelry organizer organized by the 5 shape punches and color- black, white, gold, silver, copper and other.
Oh, and sometimes I find star confetti packs while thrifting and I put those in here too ⭐️ It’s my favorite recycling hack 😃
