Elaine Davis is sharing an introduction to hybrid scrapbooking and using some of the new printables in her mixed media art journal Bible

Hello, hello creative people! I’m thrilled to be posting today under the Print & Pray Shop umbrella! I’ll be posting a couple times a week for the digital shop because we want you all to be SUPER inspired in unique ways to use some of those gorgeous printables available to you since the launch!

Did you know that printing digital products & using them in physical projects actually has a special term? It’s called ‘hybrid scrapbooking!’ The word ‘hybrid’ makes it sound difficult & technological &…fuel efficient, right? But all it means is that you use a combination of physical manufactured products & printed digital designs in your bible. That’s it! If you’ve already printed out some of the printables, you’ve been doing the hybrid thing without even knowing it! ;)

Today I have a SUPER bright & fun page I created while taking a little time to frolic in the book of Psalms (because who doesn’t love a good frolic in Psalms!? Such a pretty place to play!) Psalm 55:22 was just begging to be noticed & reading the words, I knew this would be the perfect time to jump on those incredible “Anchored” printables by Kristen Wolbach. The passage reads: “Cast your cares on the Lord & He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous be shaken,” (NIV). WOW! He will sustain you! He will provide for you. He will hold you up when you’re about to fall. Cast your cares to Him & He will never let you be shaken. *chills*

One of our talented digital artists, Kristen Wolbach, created a beautiful tag in her “Anchored” set with the words “cast your cares away” & I snatched it up to illustrate this verse. This tag comes white in the printable set, & I printed it on 110# white card stock with a laser printer. You can send your files to your nearest office supply print shop to be printed on a laser printer. The designs won’t bleed nearly as much (if at all) when faced with watercolor or mist as they will on an ink jet printer. I used watercolors on my bible page & on my printed tag to create nice, rich, colors. (This page took maybe 3 layers of paint.)

I even combined Kristen’s beautiful design with the “She Blooms” scrapbook collection from Bella Blvd to give it a completely different look than it might have had otherwise. I was inspired by the words on some of the die cut pieces– to keep blooming while He takes care of you. Keep doing you, cast your cares to Him, & you’re set.

Creating this hybrid page opened up a completely new look for these products. Let your supplies speak to you, & let them work together to create something extra beautiful! The Print & Pray Shop has so many beautiful products just waiting for you to go hybrid!

    Hi quick question from Northern Ireland…

    Firstly this is fabulous and I love it! Is this done on a piece of transparency film or straight into the bible itself…. And if straight into the bible how do you read the passage again?

    Many thanks

    Gillian

    Hi @gillian-whitcombe ? It’s basically personal preference if you want to cover the words or not . But you can totally print things on a transparency and put them into your bible that way if you would like to. Its totally up to you ! Me myself , I can cover the words in my bible , because this bible is specifically made for me to do my art worship in. I have other bibles that I use for just reading ! I hope that helps answer any questions ???

      What exactly is the transparency called? And where would I buy it? Is it vellum?

        I didn’t use a transparency on this page, but sometimes people do. Bella Blvd (the scrapbook company that creates Illustrated Faith products) has them & they’re called “Clear Cuts.” You can also just use regular transparencies you find at office supply stores!
