The Heart of Bible Journaling

my design
Prismacolour Premiere Pencils
As you may recall, the last post was the introduction to my new journaling Bible.  I'm delighted to say that my adventures continue and have opened up a world of hearts and souls who are also dedicated to exploring God's Word through our artistic endeavours!

I've been crash coursing what art mediums work best, adding tip-ins through inserted pages and tags, and learning and sharing results among any number of Bible Journaling groups -- grand fun!  I've invested in a few additional supplies to the Prismacolour Premiere pencils, which include chalk stamping pads, Koi Watercolours, Gel pens, a bit of washii tape, and a few sets of assorted stamps that I know will work nicely in my designs.

Since then, I've played both within the images included as well as creating my own designs.  Each one has lifted my heart to God while I've worked my way through the colouring or designing process.  Such a blessing!  As well, I've discovered live Bible Journaling streams on Periscope, Twitter's live feed - so fun! <3

Enjoy this very small sampling of my adventure ...

"My Fill My Cup Lord"
<3 a favourite hymn <3
I so enjoyed creating this "Fill My Cup Lord" tip in as its one of my favourite hymns.  I could hear daddy's voice singing this the whole time I was designing and colouring it. :D   This was sketched in pencil, then gone over with Faber  Castell Black Pitt Pen, coloured with Sai Watercolour Pens,
"... a new song in my heart"

"Where He Stands"
part of the Faith Illustrated Bible Journaling
Series.  This main image and circle pieces were
created by Tonya Hamilton (aka MessyBible)
along with her chosen scripture verse and
journaling thoughts about it.  Its a powerful
message, which I've included under the hinged
image.  The rest of this tip-in was done by me
to complement her lovely theme.

  1. You could not begin to know how much this post means to me both artistically and your delicate treatment of His Word. I just bought my first journaling Bible. I am poised to begin, but have been fearful of beginning. I love your idea of adding pages with a simple strip of washi tape. Thank you so much for sharing, my dear friend.

  2. YAY Kay!!! With your expertise in paper crafts, you will excel with artistic tip-ins! When I first saw them in the Bible Journaling groups, I was gobsmacked - I doubt I would ever have thought of it on my own! lol

    Bible Journaling is so personal, there is never a wrong way to express yourself along the way! It's such a blessing and inspiration to see what others have done in the art groups! Let me know if you are interested in joining any.

    I can't wait to see what you do in yours!


Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your comment! I appreciate both. :-)
