Happy Monday! Tiffany is sharing her process in using the You Are Enough Kit. We sold out of this kit the first day we had it up for sale and have more coming! I will be out of town through Tuesday of next week and I hope to have them up for sale shortly after that! Thank you again for all of your support!
Hello, Tiffany here! I am excited to join you all again today to share a glimpse of how I’ve been using the You Are Enough devotional kit so far! I don’t know about you, but this message of “You are enough” couldn’t have come at a better time for me. The past few weeks especially, I have been struggling with feelings of not measuring up or not being able to “do it all.” So, when my devotional kit arrived in the mail, I couldn’t wait to dive right in and allow the words on those pages to transform and encourage my heart!
Since this message was such a timely word for me, I knew the first thing I wanted to do was make a bookmark. Why a bookmark? Because I wanted this message to be daily reminder to me each time I opened my Bible.
I started out by cutting a strip of paper from some white cardstock I had on hand. Easy peasy!
Now, before we continue…I have a little confession to make: I am a stamping newbie. I have used stamps on rare occasions in the past, but it had been a very long time and I don’t have much experience in this area. As I started using this kit, I found myself without a stamp pad…oops! I had ordered one, but the shipment was delayed. SO, I had to be creative and I ended up using my black Faber-Castell PITT Artist Big Brush Pen to ink the stamp.
This method didn’t end up perfect (I’m still learning!), but I wanted to make it work since I was just so eager to use this kit! I decided to use my Staedtler fine liners to fill in the outlines of the stamped design. This worked wonderfully!
Next, I used my watercolors to create a rainbow on the rest of the paper. I am a huge fan of bright colors, so the results of this made my heart very happy! :)
After I had used my watercolors, the words weren’t as black and bold as I would have liked. So, I went over the words with my Staedtler fine liners again in order to make it POP!
And, there you have it! I now have a bookmark that will serve as a daily reminder that in Christ, I am always enough.
This project was so simple and the kit was lots of fun to work with! I really loved using these stamps, because they were in a style that is different than my own. Being able to use another artist’s designs gives me the opportunity to have a wider range of variety in my Bible. C.D. Muckosky did such an amazing job with this! I can’t wait to continue reading this devotional and using these stamps.
