Bible Journaling - Don't Give Up

Bible journaling has been on my creative radar for months now and when Christmas rolled around Santa (aka my hubby) delivered in a big way. I was thrilled when I opened the box and saw that My Creative Bible was enclosed. This particular journaling Bible includes a lot of pre-made artwork, mostly in the way of Scripture passages, noted on the sides of the pages (I love the use of the different fonts), as well as a few drawn images on some of the pages. I really like that some artwork was included as it took some of the "pressure" off of knowing how or where to start.

My first layout includes very simple coloring, of a passage included in the Bible, along with a tiny bit of stamping, die cutting, and a water color technique that quickly and easily adds sheer color to the pages. While I adore most of the Bible journaling that I see online, it is important for me to make sure that the words can still be easily read. It could be far too easy to treat this like any other art journal vs. remembering that it's a Bible.

I'm sharing a few other photos below and included a video of how this layout developed. As always, if you're not interested in Bible journaling you can apply the same techniques that I'm sharing to any art journal, card, or scrapbook layout.

One of my goals for this year is to post more frequently to my blog and I'm hoping to share a greater range of projects, from cards to art journal pages, scrapbook pages, and Bible journaling. Fingers crossed! :-)

Awesome pages Kim. I love the acetate idea... I have a journal Bible that's been waiting for me for 6 months now but I am too chicken to do anything with it... this technique looks like pretty easy... also, thanks for the tip to use SS ink... I will have to order one and maybe I will get the courage to do something in my Bible. :)
