Topic: Bible Journaling
The lettering lessons taught this week, by co-leader Ann, were titled 'Redeem' though we could use any form of the word (redeem, redeemed, redeemer, redemption). It is a beautiful faux brush script with very a upright stance and a few low-key curls.
I found myself singing and humming old hymns as I worked all week long. Songs like: "I Will Sing of My Redeemer", "There Is a Redeemer", "I Know My Redeemer Lives", "Redeemed, How I Love To Proclaim It" and "I'm Redeemed By Love Divine".
Monday we had our introduction to the word - I tried doing my practice in real brush marker and had only moderate success. I'm not very good with those yet.
Tuesday we got the whole alphabet. I made a copy of my sheet before filling in the spaces to aid me in drawing the letters when I started using them for real.
And after the filling in:
Wednesday we were supposed to write the word down the left side of the page and fill in with words that started with those letters. We also got instructions on creating different kinds of flowers for decoration.
I wasn't feeling the anagram activity so I made a crossword from mine. I reveled in using bright colors for my florals.
On Thursday we used this lettering style for a scripture verse. Mine was kinda long but it gave me lots of practice. This time I went for a pastel color scheme and added in a flower that I had taught as well as a palm branch disguising itself as a fern!
And Friday, as usual, was for using this style in our Bible. Much shorter verse!
Back tomorrow with the wrap-up of journaling for Lent.
