January Bible Journaling Pages

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

    1. Thank you! It's hard to get off the computer when you're a blogger, isn't it? I've been trying harder and harder to limit my time on it so I can get more things done.

    1. 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!
