_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 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!

This project was very enjoyable for me and I hope you will give Bible Journaling a try! Also, I must mention… if you are looking for a wonderful drawing instructions, check out The Revision Guide on Instagram. I will link to her step-by-step banner drawing which helped me to draw my banner.

10 Ideas For Your Paper Scraps

Cardstock comes in all colors, sizes, patterns and textures. It is the one supply that paper crafters cannot do without! So, why not make the most of your cardstock?! In this blog entry, we will be discussing 10 fun ideas for your paper scraps and how you can cut down on waste by doing so! 🙂

10 IDEAS.png

Paper Bows

Paper bows are easy to make and are a nice embellishment to add to your cards, scrapbook pages, or gift boxes. These little bows can also double as toppers for paperclips to add a cute, decorative touch. Paper scraps are perfect for bows since only a small amount of paper is needed. You can find free bow templates online or simply purchase a bow punch that does the tedious work for you!

Shaker Confetti

Shaker cards – an ongoing trend in the card-making world that’s a crowd pleaser! Many crafters fill their shaker cards with sequins… but with a few paper scraps, you can make your own shaker confetti! Simply use a hole punch on your paper scraps and create your own shaker mix! You can use shaped punches or a standard hole punch. Experiment with mixing and matching colors… it’s so fun to customize your own shaker confetti!

Die Cut Sentiment Banners

I would say that the majority of handmade cards usually include a sentiment on the front of the card. Why not use your paper scraps and make up some sentiment banners ahead of time?! It saves time when making cards. I usually set a side a night or two to go through and die cut all of my small scraps into little banners using my Sizzix machine… kind of like a die cutting party! Haha! 😉 You can even stamp them ahead of time if you want, or leave them blank for future use.

Crinkle Cut Gift Packaging

Birthdays, anniversaries, holidays… there are many fun gift-giving occasions. Put your paper scraps to good use by making your own crinkle cut gift packaging! Simply cut your scap paper into long, skinny strips and fold in a zig-zag pattern. Mix and match colors and patterns for a fun look! P.S. Find out how to make your own gift boxes HERE.

Bookmarks or Bible Journaling Panels

Bookmarks are so fun and easy to make with your longer pieces of scrap paper. Simply cut scraps down to 2×6″ and decorate as desired! This is fun for kids and adults, alike. Not only is this size great for making bookmarks, but it is also nice to use as side panels for your Bible art journaling!

Pocket Letter Inserts

If you love to partake in swaps or have a pen pal, you already know how much fun Pocket Letters are to make! What I love to do is go ahead and cut my scrap papers down to Pocket Letter size so I have many colors and patterns of paper to choose from when I start creating! These little 3×4″ cards are not only great for Pocket Letters, but they also double as Project Life cards!

Gift Tags

Gift tags are easy to make on your Cricut machine or by using a tag die cut. You can make them as small or as large as you choose – which is why they are another great idea for all sizes of scrap paper! Gift tags are fun to embellish to coordinate with the gift, jar of homemade jam, or card which they are attached to!

Embellishments

Handmade embellishments are so versatile and can be used on so many different craft projects! Most embellishments are small, so your paper scraps will come in handy to make a whole variety of embellishments. You can make miniature pinwheels, paper roses, and ephemera – just to give you a few ideas. If you’ll notice in the card pictured below, I used paper scraps to make the tiny flowers to embellish this card. So much fun!!

Polka Dot Card

Not long ago, I designed a clean and simple polka dot card. Well, the idea stuck and I’ve been making these cards for a while now for various occasions! Polka dot cards are perfect for when you want a colorful, handmade card but are strapped for time. Simply use a 1″ circle punch and punch out circles from a scrap piece of patterned/colorful cardstock. Arrange on the card front, adhere, and decorate as desired. Super easy!!

Envelope Seals or Stickers

This idea sort of feeds off the previous idea in using the 1″ circle punch. Simply punch out circles from a scrap piece of paper, stamp, heat emboss, and run through your Xyron Sticker Maker. Presto! You have your very own custom envelope seals! You can stamp them with your initial for even further customization! I made my very own Christmas envelope seals last year and really loved creating them! Additionally, you can use your shaped punches or die cuts to make your very own stickers from paper scraps!

I hope you found these ideas helpful! I’m sure there are hundreds of more ideas which you can use your paper scraps for – so put them to good use! For more ideas on how to organize your scrap paper, please see my previous entry HERE.

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

heART of Worship: Bible Journaling 101

Hello everyone and welcome to my first blog and video with the heART of Worship team! This wonderful team is an extension of the design team I am currently with, which is The Scrapbook Blessings Club. We are a team of four Christian women that would love to share the heART of Worship through Bible Art Journaling.

The first Sunday of every month I will contribute another installment to the heART of Worship – and the other ladies will take turns on the remaining Sundays. In the video at the bottom of this post, I have links to their YouTube channels – so be sure to check out their Bible journaling videos! Also, the heART of Worship Facebook page can be found HERE.

What Is Bible Art Journaling??

kw

Example of Bible Art Journaling by Krystal Whitten (click for link)

Bible art journaling has become increasingly popular in the crafting community. It is a creative way to read, memorize, and study scripture. I’m the type that never wrote in my Bible or even dared to highlight a verse! Haha!! But, since there are actually Bibles on the market that have a dedicated blank space on the side of each page especially for creative art journaling, I am free at last! You can get the Bible in any version you choose (I prefer King James Version) and it is a complete Bible with the added space on the sides.

Now the question is… what can be used to decorate the pages? Well, pretty much any craft supply you already own could work; but there are specific products for Bible journals. In fact, there is a popular company called Illustrated Faith (click for link) that sells items specifically for journaling in your Bible! You can use stickers, stencils, colored pencils, gel crayons, stamps, washi tape – pretty much anything. I would highly recommend using Gesso (which is like a canvas primer) to coat your page before adding your art. You can add the Gesso with a brush or foam wedge. This way, if you use markers or paint, it won’t bleed through the page. Plus, the Gesso will give you a smoother surface for your art.

I decided to start art journaling as an additional creative way to spend time meditating on God’s Word while I relax and do something I enjoy. I look at it as a creative form of worship to the Lord. Of course, it doesn’t take the place of my nightly quiet time with Him… it only adds to it, which is a plus! Any time spent with our minds fixed upon the Lord is never wasted. Think about it… in scripture, God used artists and creative people to help build the Temple. There had to be skilled seamstresses to sew the curtains to specifications, and those skilled with their hands to create all of the ornate furnishings of the Temple. I love to use my talents to honor the Lord and I feel that it puts a smile on His face…
