Bible Journaling with Penny


Hello crafty friends...Penny here today. When I was first approached about Bible journaling, I didn't think I could do it. I mean really...drawing, doodling, marking up a Bible was kind of like burning a flag...legal, but just not something I would do. And besides, what if I messed it up. Then I decided that everyone makes mistakes, but a true artist can figure out how to cover it up and make it look great! So....... you jump into the good book with your first stamp and you are hooked.


I absolutely love this particular verse, so let's get started:

Using StazOn Jet Black ink, stamp flower image onto the Bible page. (For protection in case anything bleeds through the paper, I put a piece of White card stock underneath my page...you will be thrilled to know that nothing I used on this page bled through...woohoo)



2.  Using Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Yellow, I colored the upper left flowers.



3.  Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Stamper's Big Brush Pens in Blue were used for the upper right flower and Red pens were used for the flower at the bottom.



4.  Using a pencil and light hand, I spelled out the verse I wanted to highlight for this page. I then traced over with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® PITT Artist Pens in Black.



5.  To give my page a bit more color I used Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Art Grip Aquarelles in Green (with no water) for the leaves.


And because I just had to see how a Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Gelatos would do on the paper, I added just a bit of Snowcone around the stem of the leaves with a dry paintbrush.

Yes, it worked great and no bleeding through the rice paper in my Bible.

Oh, I want to do this so badly! My Bible has no empty spaces ... may have to think about buying a journaling Bible, but it would be hard to switch from my faithful book! Beautifully done, Penny!

So beautiful.


I am SOOO surprised and dare I say THRILLED that my FC Big Brush Markers will work without bleeding on my journalling Bible pages! I'll be sure to test myself, because I'm certain that different Bibles will have different paper fibers, but truthfully, until your beautiful post, I never would have even considered trying to use them! I use my gelatos all the time and love them!

Lovely post - and that's one of my very favorite verses as well! :)

I love Bible Journaling. Just a note for those not wanting to work in their Bible or their Bible has no blank spaces, just use a journal. The whole point of Bible Journaling is to Journal (with art, fancy lettering, rewriting a passage, stamps, stickers, etc.) is to get in the Word and draw closer to the Lord. Go with what you have and build on it is you can. You will be Blessed. God loves when his children worship him and Bible Journaling is a form of worship.
