Early and Mid October Bible Journaling Pages

For months now I have been showing you large groups of Bible Journaling pages trying to play "Catch Up"  to where I actually am in the Bible.  I am happy to say I am all caught up and maybe now after this weeks post, I can go a little deeper into what I've been learning spiritually as I Bible Journal instead of just talking about how I made my pages.

I am finally in the book of 1 Kings!  This is how I colored the pre-printed chapter page.  I really wanted to emphasize the sun's rays in the image so I colored the whole page with water colors.  I'm not usually a water color fan, but I think they are the perfect medium to use when you want to color an entire page because you can still see the words.  I know a lot of you are going to ask how I got the colors so vibrant.  I used the water color in the tubes and I added very little water.  

After the page was dry, I colored in the image with a mix of pencils and glitter gel pens.

This is another pre-printed image I colored in with pencils then I went around the edges of the words with glitter gel pens.

I found this old page in my pictures that I did back in August but I never shared with you.   I created this page myself.  I created this page as a reminder to myself that when I am betrayed or hurt that I can just forgive and not seek revenge.  God is my advocate.  Romans 12 :19 says "Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”says the Lord. " 

I created this page by coloring the background with gelatos and stamping in "He is my advocate" with alphabet stamps.  Then I stamped an arrow pointing to that verse and hand wrote my notes in.  The bird and flowers are stickers and the circles are die cuts.

Here is a two page spread that I did.  The left side is a pre-printed image and the right page I created myself.  I colored both sides with water colors.

For the pre-printed side after the water colors dried, and I went back and colored in the words with colored pencils using an ombre effect.  I added a little glitter to the lamp flame.

This page I created because after I read the verse "He Makes me as surefooted as a deer, enabling me to stand on mountain heights" I was reminded of when my husband and I were in Zion National Park and we saw mountain goats standing on the a very steep, slippery cliff.  We marveled at how they managed to walk on those steep cliffs so easily without slipping.  It's such an amazing imagery for David the shepherd to use of God enabling us.

After I water colored the page and dried it with a heat gun,  I painted the mountain with craft paint.  I had a little deer die cut in my stash and just placed it on top of the mountain (a fellow crafter sent me this die cut).  Then I used a variety of stamps and different colored inks for the Bible verse.  

Have a Great Day!  Amy

  1. I really enjoy illustrating my cabin journal pages. I also keep an RV travel journal that I illustrate when we are on trips. I enjoyed looking at how you coloured your pages with different types of media. - Margy

    1. That's awesome! I've noticed as traditional scrap booking and card making go out of style, more crafters are doing art journals. I might do that soon myself!

  2. Bought some gel pens and they arrived today. Haven't used them yet but hope they lead me to create pages as lovely as yours.

    1. Oh, I hope they work for you! I wasted a lot of money on gel pens until I found the right ones. Let me know how you like them. Thanks so much!

  3. So beautiful! I especially love the last page you showed with the deer on the mountain. So creative and great color choices too!

    1. Thanks Ellie! I'm getting better at this, aren't I? :) That was one reason I decided to start at the very beginning of my Bible and work my way to the end, so I could see my progress.

  4. Very pretty! Thanks so much for sharing on Farm Fresh Tuesdays!

  5. Your pages are so beautiful!! I love your arrow that your wrote notes in! Thanks for sharing!
