Topic: Bible Journaling
Ooooh, I love it when a project comes out exactly like I planned it!
Last time I had my Bible journalling out I made a note of several scriptures I wanted to illustrate and did some rough pencil sketches in a notebook. So, when I got ready to work today, I already had a starting place.
I selected Psalm 139:17-18 to illustrate with a beach scene.
As usual, I completed the sketch in the Bible with fine-line black pen and used colored pencils to finish it.
I don't know why the photo does not show it, but on the lettering (the wider parts) are double lines with purple colored between them to match the distant hills.
This was drawn and colored completely from the imagination. The only reference I used was a look-up of a photo of a sandpiper so I could get the pose correct.
I added lots of little dots around the critters and around the last words in the quote, "the grains of sand", to join them to the illustration.
