Luke 12:27
Topic: Bible Journaling

Sitting in the library waiting on someone I had some time to sketch. I have just recently begun carrying a sketchbook in my purse and this was the first time I have used it!

I sketched a flower. Not sure what it is because it is strictly out of my head, but it looks a little like a gladiola, some like a lupine, sort of like a hollyhock.

When I got home I traced over my pencil drawing with marker and then used my very flat light box to trace it into my Bible. I did the front flower on the right and then turned my art over to the back and traced it for the flower on the left. Finally, I used parts from the front view and the back view to construct the flower in the back.

I added veins to the petals and leaves and then erased all the pencil marks before using colored pencils to color and shade the flowers. I added sky and ground very lightly in the background.


I thumbed through my reference pages for lettering and found a script that looks very casual. About halfway through the penciling-in phase I just started lettering in my own hand and followed through with that as I was inking the text.

I did follow the guide to add some flourishes before I traced over the ink with colored pencils to coordinate with the drawing.
