Tip Tuesday | Colored Pencils

Hello everyone! It’s time for another Tip Tuesday and today we are looking at colored pencils and how to blend them and use them in your Bible Journaling! Check out the video and products links below.

There are a large variety of colored pencils but I’ve found these to be my go to brands. I like to suggest the Crayola Twistables as a starter set since they are fairly inexpensive but blend well and have a great color variety. The Jane Davenport and Prismacolors are pretty similar just depends on the color variety you are looking for and of course Prismacolors can be bought open stock in some stores.

These swatches were blended out with Gamsol and here is where you can see why Prismacolors are worth the money! However, they all blend well when use the Gamsol to dissolve them.

When blending colored pencils with Gamsol, it’s important to pay attention to what ink you are using for your stamping. You want to stick with dye based inks or archival inks…pigment inks will smudge. If you are worried about bleed through then you can prep your pages with gesso first or stamp/color on cardstock and then cut the pieces out like custom ephemera.

Be sure to check out the video below for more info!
