Now that the Christmas Decor is down, and I'm finished with my FaceBook Thanksgiving and Christmas Bible Study Groups, I can return to a more normal routine. One thing I was excited about doing was resuming back to my own personal study of reading through the Bible beginning to end and doing Bible Journaling Pages again.
Last month I shared that I couldn't wait to get out of the book of 2 Kings and onto 1 Chronicles. But after a few chapters in, I wanted to go back to 2 Kings 🤣. For those who may not be familiar with the book of 1 Chronicles, it starts off with a lot of chapters on lists of names. There's not a whole lot of Bible Journaling one can do with a list of names, so I basically just colored in the pre-printed images that are already in the "Inspire Bible".
Here is the chapter title page. I used colored pencils for all the large spaces and then I used gel pens for more intricate work.
Speaking of gel pens, my son gave my granddaughter gel pens for Christmas. They are AMAZING! I tried them out and loved them so much I ordered my own set. They are by Aen Art and are so inexpensive! You get 30 colors for less than $10.00. You can find them on AMAZON.
I did do one page all by myself this month. I really loved this story about this arrogant king who thought he was so powerful and indestructible. God just laughs at him and says "Have you not heard? I decided this long ago. Long ago I planned it, and now I am making it happen". Every politician in power is only there because God put him/her there!
To make my page, I first colored the page in with gelatos, highlighting the verse that spoke to me. Then I stamped a man with a bull horn on card stock, colored the image in, and cut it out and glued it to the Bible page. I also stamped two more bull horns, colored them in, and glued those to the page. I used a variety of stickers and my own hand writing to convey my message.
The rest are all pre-printed images. This one the salmon color background is created with colored pencils and Gamosol. Everything else was more intricate so I used gel pens. I highlighted the letters with a white gel pen.
A simple page done solely with gel pens.
The bird and flowers were colored with pencils, for everything else I used gel pens.
I did the banners in colored pencils and gel pens for all the words and intricate details.
This page was a real challenge but I liked how it turned out. The letters were colored with pencils and Gamosol, but then I used a glitter gel pen in black to emphasize them. Everything else was colored with my new gel pens from Amazon. I'm so thrilled to have more colors to play with!
Have A Great Day! Amy

Your Bible journal pages are lovely! Gel pens are one of my favorite tools, too! I've been trying to learn better hand lettering techniques lately. -Marci @ Stone Cottage AdventuresReplyDelete
I'd like to feature your post at Tuesdays with a Twist this week.
Thank you oh, I wish I were better at hand lettering! I have a book, but it doesn’t help me much. That would be awesome to be featured. Thanks so much!Delete
