Hi friends! I hope your 2020 is off to an amazing start! I’d like to show you what I’ve been working on while using Taylor’s newest set in the Illustrated Faith Print & Pray Shop. Her kit, Eyes to See, has lots of beautiful florals and girls in glasses (!!) along with an extensive devotional.
Whenever you purchase a digital set from the Print & Pray shop, I hope you feel free to use it in your bible anywhere your heart finds joy. Meaning, if you buy the kit for the cute girls in glasses, or the flowers, that’s ok. A kit can be used for more than it’s focus! But having a direction is so helpful sometimes, like when we just don’t know where to start.
Personally, I love Taylor’s insights and devotionals! So, I decided to dive into this set and work the entire devotional in a grid Travelers Notebook (TN for short).
Here’s all my goodies printed and cut out. The girls and florals are printed on white cardstock; the titles onto clear sticker paper; and a sheet of matching patterned paper onto an inkjet overhead transparency. The devotional pages are also printed onto white cardstock with the edges trimmed. Then, the sheet is folded in half between each devo page. Usually when working this size TN devo, I cut each devo out and glue onto a TN page. But this time, I decided to make a front and back devo “page” by taping the loose edges into my notebook.
I spent a fun afternoon working through Taylor’s devotional and answering the questions in each section. A little watercolor, the triangle stencil from last summer’s Revival camp, and a strip of floral washi finish everything off. Both the stencil and washi can be found in the Illustrated Faith shop (link below).
Have you tried printing patterned papers onto overhead transparency sheets? I feel like the clear paper has a bit of a crystal sparkle to it! I like seeing more of the graph texture through the paper. The coordinating text boxes in this set are a great way to fit in my journaling while still adding a coordinating piece.
The devo pages are taped to the travelers notebook using clear washi created by cutting off the edges of a piece of clear sticker paper. There’s always about a half inch margin around the edges of each printed sheet that you can trim off. This super helpful “clear washi” tip came from Jillian (@hellojillsky) and I use it a lot! A little matching watercoloring fills in all the extra space. I loved using the matching titles – printing them on clear sticker paper really makes them look like they are printed right into the notebook.
Have you picked up a devotional kit recently? I love the perspective Taylor gives in this devotional. There’s an entire section of the Print & Pray shop with devotional kits and materials. I can’t wait to keep adding to this notebook all year! Thank you for joining me here today, friends!
