More Bible Journaling Pages

I've been Bible journaling for a few weeks, and it is really resonating with me! Not every day; just a couple of pages a week. Sometimes it is a verse or passage that comes to mind in response to a situation; sometimes I'm inspired by looking at Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest; sometimes a sermon sparks looking further at a passage and inspires a page.

I've pulled out a lot of my long-packed-away art supplies, like my paintbrushes, Prismacolor pencils, drawing pencils, calligraphy pens, watercolors, watercolor pencils, etc. I've purchased a few new supplies too - gelatos, white gel pen - and have been inspired to try out a few new techniques. There are some wonderful tutorials on Youtube that give instruction for using various media or for creating a certain look. Supplies that I've collected from bursts of interest in scrapbooking and rubber stamping are finding new use in my Bible journaling.

For years, I've been saying that someday I would have time delve back into art again. Surprisingly, the time seems to have arrived!

If you are interested in starting, use your search engine and look for Bible Journaling, Faith Art, Art Worship, Illustrated Faith.  As I said, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest are loaded with links, tutorials, examples, and inspiration. You can work right in your Bible or use a separate sketch pad or notebook.  You can journal with mainly words, with drawing & painting, with stickers & stamps, as simply or elaborately as you like.
