Bible Art Journal Flip-Through

bthumbnail

Hello one and all! Today, I will be showing you a video of all the entries in my Bible art journal thus far. My sweet husband, Josh, got it for me as a gift for Christmas (2016), so I’ve had it a little over a year at the time I’m writing this. In this time, I’ve completed 29 pages of art to go along with each particular scripture I’ve chosen. I find this is a creative way to worship, memorize scripture, and meditate on the Word. For more about Bible Journaling, you may be interested in my previous post, “Bible Journaling 101”.

I hope you enjoy my Bible Art Journal Flip-Through video below:

 

Bible Art Journal: The Nativity

Can you believe Christmas is almost here?! I hope each of you are having a blessed Christmas season, as we remember the birth of Christ. In keeping Christ in Christmas, I decided to share a Bible Art Journal entry.

First off, I love the look of stained glass. So, I Googled “stained glass nativity” and had some beautiful images to choose from for inspiration. If your Bible Art Journal is for personal use and you’re not selling it or taking credit for the image, it is perfectly fine to use images found online for inspiration/ideas. Since I have this public blog, however, I have credited the original artist’s website below.

I found this beautiful image but took my own creative license with the image and added a few “extras”. Since my Bible Art Journal only has a narrow side margin in which to journal, I decided to focus on the center stained glass panel of baby Jesus.

I used a ruler to draw the straight lines and free-handed the rest. When drawing a complex image, it’s important to draw in sections. Don’t feel overwhelmed with the image, as a whole. I begin in pencil; then, once I’m pleased with the image, I outline it with my Sakura Micron Pen.

When the ink is dry, I erase the pencil. The ink only has slight ghosting but does not bleed through the page. I LOVE this pen for Bible journaling. Then, I used my PrismaColor colored pencils to color in the image and added a few stars in the sky with my Uniball Signo white gel pen. This is the finished art…

“The Name of Jesus” Bible Journaling Entry

Hello everybody! I’m here today with a new Bible Journaling entry to share! I have a few additional posts, all about Bible Journaling. If you want to check out my previous posts, I will link to them below:

_The Name of Jesus_

The scripture I am focusing on today is found in Philippians 2:10 which says, “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth…”


The beauty of Bible Journaling is that it can be done in a notebook journal… so don’t feel that you must make a big investment to enjoy this type of art and study. The point of Bible Journaling is to learn, memorize, retain, and reflect upon the sacred scripture. In the supplies list below, I will link to a Bible Journal and supplies – but again, don’t feel that you must have anything fancy in order to still enjoy this form of art.

Supplies:

Bible Journal     Scissors     Cardstock

Colored Pencils     Sakura Brush Pen     Glue Runner

Step-By-Step Instructions:

STEP 1: I actually found the graphic for my Bible Journaling entry from a church program! I used my scissors to fussy cut out the name “Jesus” from the program cover.

STEP 1

STEP 2: I wanted to add a shadow effect/black outline behind the text, so I placed my cut-out text “Jesus” onto a piece of black cardstock paper. I traced around the text then cut it larger to create a shadow. Afterwards, I glued text “Jesus” onto the black cardstock. Set this aside for now.

STEP 2

STEP 3: In my Bible column, I wanted a banner. So, I drew the banner onto a piece of scratch paper first to make sure I liked the design and also in case I made any mistakes. After I was pleased with the design, I put my scratch paper behind my Bible column and traced my hand-drawn banner onto the column with a pencil. After I was pleased, I went ahead and used my black brush pen/marker to outline. I recommend the Sakura Brush Pen (linked above) as it is designed for this very thing and will not bleed or feather.

STEP 4: The final steps are to glue the “Jesus” text under my banner and to use my colored pencils to color everything in, including my background. This completes this entry!

Song of Solomon Bible Journaling//heART of Worship Sundays

heart-of-worship-badge-opener

As part of the Scrapbook Blessings Club design team, I am bringing a Bible Journaling page to you today. Not only was this page a joy to create, but I also found tremendous insight from the scripture I am using. The scripture for today is found in Song of Solomon, chapter 2, verses 10-13. It reads…

seasons2

“My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; the fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.”


Please see the video below to hear about the encouraging insight I discovered from this scripture, as well as how I went about creating the art journal page to go along with it. Also, I have a list of all the supplies I used posted below. Have a blessed week!!

“Love” | heART of Worship Bible Journaling

how-love-wmFor today’s Bible art journaling entry, I am going with the theme of love. The scripture I chose in 1st Corinthians 13 was actually the one that was read at our wedding – so it has a special meaning to me. Verses 4-7 state: “Charity [love] suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.”

Remember, it’s best if you prime your page using a clear Gesso before beginning. I like to coat the front and back of the page so the paper won’t curl up on the edges. Once the Gesso is dry, you’re ready to begin creating. I have all of the supplies you’ll need linked below.

Find out what I created in the video posted. The video contains an easy step-by-step tutorial which is great for beginners. I hope you enjoy today’s Bible journaling entry. 🙂


Supplies List:

Bible Journal     Clear Gesso     Gesso Brush     Gel Pen     Acrylic Block     Memento Ink    Scor-Tape

Zig Glue Pen     Calligraphy Stamps     Crayola Twistables     Spectrum Noir Glitter Pen     Scissors
