Bible Journaling - Isaiah 35:1
Topic: Bible Journaling

I'm so glad I discovered this form of art. I had read a lot about art journaling and viewed others' work but the multi-media, and mostly abstract, stuff I was seeing was just not speaking to me.

Then I saw some Bible artwork by Sandy Allnock (she used to run Operation Write Home for whom I made cards for servicemen) and knew I had found the focus I wanted.

The key for me is that I have a verse in mind and can draw artwork specifically for that page. It doesn't have to be frame-worthy nor does it have to be hidden away in an art journal with other random art. It has purpose - a devotional focus.

I experiment with lettering styles that I would have no reason to study were I not trying to marry the text to the illustration.

For this page I reflected on Isaiah 35:1.


I wanted to illustrate the profusion of blossoms so drew (from memory) a wide variety of flowers. I also made the desert cactuses bloom in the mid-ground.

I searched a font library for 'flower fonts' and sketched several to use, repeating them down the text for continuity.

I came upon this scripture by thumbing through the concordance in the back of my Bible the other day. I'm going entry by entry making a note of phrases that evoke an illustration in my mind. In the first session of this cataloging I have reached the middle of the 'C's.
