Just before christmas did I bought crayons that’s called Prima Water Soluble Oil Pastel, I’ve used them occasionally but I wanted to test them more and to that are art journaling perfect.

The crayons are water soluble, but on this page I wanted the colors to be strong, and I didn’t used any water to get maximum colors. It didn’t became a masterpiece but it was fun to add thick with paint and mix the colors directly on paper.

When the background was finished by a chance I look at the day’s Bible verse on the magazine’s Dagens website, and the word of the day suited me fine right then.

The crayons can be used in a lot of ways and I found a good and informative video about what you can do with them here.

On the opposite side in the same art journal block, I used a different type of crayons called Gelatos and manufactured by Faber-Castell. These are also water soluble and are available in several colors and also in metallic pastel colors. These metallic colors have become a favorite right now because they give a very nice shine to the project, but on this side, I however not used any of metallic colors.

This page got words that for me represents what it means to be in God’s presence.
