Topic: Bible Journaling
I did some sketching for Bible journaling while on a recent, short vacation trip. I have all my supplies in a large canvas tote while at home and this includes printouts of drawing ideas and lettering styles as well a books on both. I also have a book about Bible journaling, a collapsible light and a box with a variety of pens and pencils. My lightpad fits in there, too.
When I travel, however, I put my favorite pen, one drawing pencil, a sharpener, an eraser, my index of verses I want to work on and some sketch paper into the box that holds my journaling Bible. I wrap an elastic band around the metal box that holds my colored pencils and I have all I need to work 'on the road'. I have photographed many of the lettering and sketch ideas into my phone and I can use these for reference.
I did three sketches while on vacation and waited to transfer them to my Bible until I got home so I could use the lightpad to trace them.
This is the first of the three that I finished.
I worked from a photo on the internet to get the poses for the runners, though all the sketching was done free-hand (no tracing). After lots of re-drawing, editing and refinement I did use the lightpad to trace my own drawing into the Bible using the fine-line black marker.
I colored all the illustration with the Prismacolor colored pencils. Then I used one of the photos of lettering styles on my phone to write out the scripture and colored that as well.
All of the lettering and the runners were gone over with the lightest colored pencil I have to smooth out the coloring.
