Topic: Bible Journaling
It seems when I learn a new font for the Lettering Lodge on the Bbile Journaling Facebook page I follow, I immediately want to write out the whole alphabet. Then, depending on the 'word' that is assigned to that font I start thinking about verses I can journal with that font.
The group is doing one word on Monday, the alphabet on Tuesday, a surprise assignment on Wednesday, a verse on paper on Thursday and then using the font in the Bible on Friday.
I can't work that slow. I end up doing the word AND the alphabet on Monday, looking for verses on Tuesday and journaling in the Bible by Wednesday...Thursday at the latest.
If they did it all in one day, I would be OK with that!
So, this week it was a font they called Grace. It has a bit of Native American art vibe to it.
I changed up little bits in the font to come up with this page (the uppermost word is a different font by the same artist):
As you can see, the lowercase letters re not very exciting - the rounder letters have a diamond-ish feel to them, but everything else is just basic printing.
So, when I wrote out the verse in my Bible, I used all uppercase letters. Again, I edited bits of the letters and then I did some creative coloring to give them a bit more pizazz.
For the hands, I used an illustration sheet that taught how to draw this particular pose and then traced to the back of the paper to get the reverse image.
I took a photo of the tiny sketch with my phone, turned up the contrast and enlarged it and then used the screen under my bible like a lightbox to trace the hands.
It was a new process for me.
