Hello and welcome back to the blog today. I wanted to introduce you to my newest favorite past time. Bible Journaling.
We recently had Stephanie Ackerman come to our local scrapbook store and I took her Bible Lettering and Journaling class and I fell for it full force. Ever since I had been searching for a Journaling Bible because the margins in my current Bible are just too skinny to journal.
I took a trip to Mardel where I found a few, in two different sizes and they were on sale! Yay! It's not my favorite translation (ESV) but I like that the margins are nice and big.
Since then I have done several pages and I wanted to share those with you today
Stephanie had stamped these and put them into our kits and I went ahead and colored it and added this to the very cover of my Bible with some wash tape, I have a bracelet that says this and I just love the message here
My pages are deeply personal but I want to share with you my journey
This page was my very first one in this Bible and was done with one of Stephanies print outs, I simply traced it onto my page and then made it my own, I drew the flowers at the bottom
I have been using Neocolors and a water brush for almost all of my pages
Next I did this page and free handed the lettering. I need some more practice but it's a journey, right?
for the next two pages I traced one of my wonderful friends flower and butterflies. She is an amazing artist (Terri Richardson)
I was highly frustrated the day I did this page and I prayed and asked the Lord for peace on my heart.
This page evolved as I went along, I never knew I could draw an eye haha!
For this page I added a stamped sentiment by Stephanie and Unity Stamps and taped it into the page with washi tape
I wrote behind it about my anxiety
Pilippians 4: 4-7
This is also a drawing by my wonderful friend Terri - I did the lettering
This is the verse that is engraved inside my wedding ring, it means a lot to me and my husband
Song of Solomon 8:6
Psalms 18: 1-3
That's it for me today, I'm sure you will see even more Bible journaling from me here on the blog since it's my new passion.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Sunday and a great Labor Day tomorrow
