Bible Journaling - Revelation 5:12
Topic: Bible Journaling

Combining a couple of favorite things (lettering and drawing) into the artform called Bible journaling makes me happy. Digging into the Bible to find just the right scripture to suit a theme is time well spent and I always find something good to meditate on.

This past week, the online group was working on a tall font based on ovals. It makes a space-saving font that can be made to look casual or elegant, depending on how it's used.

I started on Monday with the assigned word in the font:

Note how the lowercase shoulders come half a space above the midline?

Tuesday we tackled the whole alphabet:


Here, you can see, I narrowed the width of the letters to make them more oval.

Wednesday, we were challenged to write out a verse of a hymn with the work 'lamb' in it and to draw an image of a lamb. I decided to write out the entire song I wrote in 2009 and drew a lamb from a photograph I found on the internet.

I had to make my own lined paper in Word to get the size and spacing right for the number of lines I had. I then wrote out the whole thing in pencil on that lined paper and then used the lightpad to trace it onto a clean sheet of paper using a fine-line marker.

I traced my sketched lamb on the page in fine-line marker and used colored pencils to finish it.

On Thursday, we did our usual activity of writing a scripture on paper using the font. I wrote mine up and then did some pen-work to give it the look of an invitation.


Today (Friday) we took the new font to our Bible, selecting a scripture that used the work 'lamb'.

I liked the lamb I had drawn on Wednesday so decided to include that on my page. When I was originally looking for pictures of lambs I saw several that showed the wounded lamb and included a cross. I decided to add these as well as a crown and banner (purple for royalty).


All coloring with Prismacolor pencils.
