A Clean Heart
Topic: Bible Journaling

TWO pages in one week? Astounding!

I have journaled this verse once before but it was done in my interleaved Bible a couple of years ago. For this page I scrolled through Pinterest for ideas and combined several to get a layout for my page.

The bubbles are one design, the heart design from another with coloring from yet another, a wooden washtub was refashioned into a metal bucket.

This is all done with Prismacolor colored pencils.

The lettering is freehand in a semi-script style using Prismacolor marker.

A New Thing
Topic: Bible Journaling

Loooonnnnggg time since I have done a bible journaling page! Last year I focused on a devotional book (100 Days of Bible Promises), on scripture writing using the names and attributes of God, and on verse mapping, also on names of God. That didn't make for good blog posting material, though.

I plan to do at least one bible page a week this year and started with Isaiah 43:18-19: "Forget the former things. Do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?"

This seems like a good focus for the new year after the world-wide trials of the past two years. Keep looking forward - God has good things planned for us!

I incorporated fireworks to celebrate New Year's because the neighbors always keep us awake half the night on New Year's Eve with the noise (all illegl, of course). I found a simple set of drawing instructions for these three styles of explosions. Then I used colored pencils over the black ink.

The lettering is a very casual style that I taught online a few years ago to a small Facebook group.

Taking the Lesson to my Bible
Topic: Bible Journaling

All the colored pencil shading and blending I did for online class in the last couple of days culminated in a bible journaling page.

The lesson had us combining the sphere coloring, color blending and use of odorless mineral spirits to create a forest of round trees. I found a place for them in Leviticus.

I added some shadows cast by the tree trunks!

In the Beginning
Topic: Bible Journaling

Welcome to another year on my blog!

This year, in scripture writing, I am planning to focus on the Names/Attributes of God in order as they are introduced in the Bible. This includes Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Thses scriptures will be written in my Happy Planner and will be my activities for Monday through Friday. I am also planning to do Bible journaling pages around some of these scriptures which will happen on random days.

I picked up some of Shanna Noel's devotionals: 100 Days of... and will use those as my Saturday-Sunday activities. These will sometimes involve art pages and be shared here. I haven't decided which of the three books I bought will be the one I use this year.

I also do Verse Mapping which is scheduled once per week, but not assigned to a specific day.

For the first Bible page of the year, I went to Genesis 1:1 and, focusing on the name itself, I shortened the scripture to read "In the beginning... GOD"

I had a piece of clipart from Creative-Bible-Journaling.com as the starting point. I took out their lettering inside the banner and added the same words back in Old English (Gothic) lettering. I hand drew all of this lettering as well as the GOD (same font) for the bottom of the page.

I added more doodles to the original artwork and then traced all of it into my Bible. The black fill for the letters is all with Prismacolor markers and the coloring on the artwork is Prismacolor Premier colored pencils.

The Scroll of the Revelation
Topic: Bible Journaling

The assignment for this page was to use a 'scroll' in the book of Revelation. I had taught a scroll in a drawing lesson in 2018 so it was easy to revisit that to create this one.

I used some colored pencils for the shading and a brush marker for the lettering.

Hummingbird In My Bible
Topic: Bible Journaling

I taught a tutorial last year on how to draw a hummingbird. At that time I drew it in my Interleaved Bible. This time I added it to my Journal the Word bible.

I used one of my old lettering lessons (fiddlesticks) to write the verse and used colored pencils for the illustration.

Just one more book and the second year of Cover 2 Cover will be complete.

Where He Leads
Topic: Bible Journaling

The assigned font to use was 'leads' but there was no verse that expressly used it so I went with the 'follower' instead. The person walking in truth is definately following.

I used clear Happy Planner stickers to decorate this page after writing the verse in the assigned font.

Here's My Tangled Heart
Topic: Bible Journaling

The heart I did on this page in 1 John is from a tutorial I did in early 2018. The left side of it is constructed by an additive process: The first line is made with shallow scallops, then each of them gets two deep scallops on top. Hearts are added between every other deep scallop and a looped bridge covers the space between the alternates. It is a gradual building of what looks like a complicated design.

In this heart I carried the line into a spiral and finished with a heart 'charm'.

The right side is from a mini-lesson on drawing ribbons.

I used a form of 'architect' lettering for writing the verse on this page.

Bible Typography
Topic: Bible Journaling

In the worksheets I did for the Typography For Bible Journaling class last year I had two that were done for1st John - verses that came one after the other so they were on the same page in my bible.

Putting one on the facing page was not possible as that space already had artwork on it.

So I originally thought I could do one at the top of the page margin and the other at the bottom but one turned out to be drawn too wide for the space. Hmmm.

I did use one in the margin but made the other on a loose piece of paper and used it as a tip-in.

I colored both with the same colors of pastel markers to link them visually.

These are the last two verses from the class(es) that I can use in this bible as all of the spaces where the others would go are being used.
I do have my interleaved bible with plenty of full-sized pages to fill but these are specifically designed for the size of these margins.
I supposed I may get another journaling bible someday with margins to draw in and I can use up the remainder of the drawings in that.

The Comfort of God
Topic: Bible Journaling

In these times of trouble the only hope of comfort is our God.

Praise Him for all he does for us!

This is from my typography workbook I did in class.

A Crown For James
Topic: Bible Journaling

 With an assignment to use the 'listen' font and the crown in the book of James I found that I had used the page already that was most suited to this: James 1:12.

So I borrowed just a corner where there was extra space because of the book title. The illustration is colored lightly enough that the text can still be read through it.

I used colored pencils for this work.

Roman Some More
Topic: Bible Journaling

 I've always liked this novelty front withcolored letters embedded in solid forms. For this piece I combined the novelty print with plain print and script. A few graphic elements were included to help tell the story.

I really like the world turned into a heart.

Roaming in Romans
Topic: Bible Journaling

 Here's a little typography practice in Romans 8:31. This is a fun little font with a mix of upper and lowercase letters with curls as accents.

There were no sample forms for numerals or punctuation so I made up a question mark.

Love Your Enemies
Topic: Bible Journaling

I was practicing a new font a couple of years ago and decided to use it on this scripture for a typography lesson.

When I transfered it to my bible this week I used a blue glitter pen instead of the gold I had used on the sample in my workbook.

A very short scripture that covers a lot of territory.

Micah, Micah, Micah
Topic: Bible Journaling

 It has been so much fun revisiting these typography samples and transfering them to my bible.

I really like the double writing on the word 'peace' which I first saw as a sample on wtiting headings for bullet journaling pages.


The coloring is all done with colored pencils that matched the markers I used on the original sample in my sketchbook.

Beauty in Lamentations
Topic: Bible Journaling


That is how we can get through struggles and hard times, because God is faithful to us and gives us new mercies every day. When we rise up in the morning we can know that he is already making a way ahead of us to help us make it through.

It doesn't mean that things will be easy or that the way ahead will be smooth. It means that he will be with us through it all.

This scripture in Lamentations assures us of God's faithfulness and his always-renewing mercy.

I drew the original sketch for this piece in my class on Typography For Bible Journaling. That was some time ago and I am just now getting to put it in my bible.

I like the imagery in this piece and have added colored pencil without shading.

Proverbs 16:24
Topic: Bible Journaling

Oh my goodness! I absolutely love the way this scripture came together in typography. A little mix of hexigon shaped letters with some standard letters on a hexigon background is so stinkin' cute.

I added a wide band at the top and bottom to stand in for the hive frame and colored using only a honey-hued colored pencil.

Because all the hexigon letters were formed with double lines I used doubles on the other letters as well. They also got serifs to make them more substantial.

This is going to be a favorite page.

The Soul of Hebrews
Topic: Bible Journaling

This is another time when an assigned font ('leads') was used with an assigned drawing lesson ('birdcage') in an assigned book of the bible ('Hebrews').

I chose the scripture Hebrews 13:3 which speaks of praying for the Christian brothers who were in prison. It has nothing to do with the font 'leads' but relates to the bird in the cage.

The font is based on a free font called TallSmall in which the x-height is 1/4 of the ascender height. It also incorporates upright letter forms with serifs.

The drawing is from a lesson I taught in a group in 2018.

More Typography Transfer
Topic: Bible Journaling

Today the typography I transfered from my practice notebook to my bibles is Psalm 116:7.

I got to use two print styles and two script styles for this one and I love the way it all came together without feeling cluttered or messy.

Even though this is in the old testament I included a cross as a decorative element to foreshadow the goodness that was still to come when this scripture was written.

Bible Typography - In the Psalms
Topic: Bible Journaling

Quite some time ago I took a class in Typography for Bible Journalers. Several months after that I did a round of scripture writing using special typography for a month.

I started out the year trying to carry over those designs into my bible as I got to each book of the bible in the cover to cover program that was planned by a group I belong to. Somewhere along the line I fell off the wagon on that plan so I have some catching up to do.

What I did first was look in my bible to see what pages were open where the scriptures fell. I marked these and then worked my way through the bible in order, inserting those designs.

This is the first I did for the re-generated plan:

Psalm 107:9

He satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.

The original designs were colored with markers. I used the same color schemes as closely as possible but with colored pencils.
