Editorial Note: This is a pre-scheduled post. I'm on vacation in Utah so I may not be able to release or reply to comments until I get back.
It has been SO LONG since I've shared any of my Bible Journaling pages because I had so many birthdays and anniversaries this summer that I was sharing handmade cards instead. Well, I'm done with card making for awhile, so now you will be seeing all my Bible Journaling pages on Tuesdays again. And I've been busy, so I have lots of pages to show you.
I'm getting more and more creative in my Bible journaling, and I'm really starting to develop my own style. When I first started Bible Journaling the tendency is to "copy" for awhile till I found my own way. It's interesting looking at other people's Bible Journaling pages, everyone is so different. So many people like to just color a pretty image. But for me, my journaling or my coloring has to reflect what I'm learning. I find I tend to like to write notes more than stamp, draw and color pretty images. But, because I have a Bible with pre-printed images, I do both, as shown in the photo below.
On this page, I colored the pre-printed image with gel pens and gelatos, but then I also highlighted, circled, and made notes on the page of what stood out to me.
Here is a photo of the opposite page in the Bible. It also had a pre-printed image on it.
Again, I highlighted some verses that stuck out to me and wrote a few notes.
For this image I did a mix of gel pens, glitter pens, and pencils.
Do you think I highlight too much? 🤣 I actually started trying to cut back on the highlighting recently, but it's SO HARD! There's just so much good stuff I want to highlight! I absolutely love this double page spread. The left page was a pre-printed image that I just colored in, but the right page I created myself.
The reason I highlighted so much in these pages was because it really moved me how generation after generation of Israelites did not acknowledge or remember the Lord and how important it is to us as parents and grandparents to teach our kids about God.
I used a variety of stickers, stamps, and my own hand-writing to emphasize obedience, teaching, believing, etc. Then I added scripture references from else where in the Bible of this important lesson. Butterfly stamps and the circular reading stamp complete the page with illustrations.
The backgrounds and highlighting was all done with gelatos.
