A Pair of Bunnies
Topic: Bible Journaling

A few days ago, online instructor Sandy Allnock gave a little tutorial on drawing bunnies using a grid to establish the correct size relationships of the parts. She did one pair of bunnies facing backward and another pair facing forward.

I redrew the tutorial for myself with notes in my sketchbook for future reference.

Then I sketched out a pair of bunnies with one facing each way in my bible.

I used a very light hand with the pencil and after coloring with Prismacolor pencils I erased any graphite pencil lines that still showed.

I used 2 Peter 3:14 as my reference verse.

Here is a closeup of the drawing.

Now I want to snuggle with some rabbits!

Provided By the Shepherd
Topic: Bible Journaling

I did another page using the online class Seeing the Scriptures - Psalm 23:1-3.

For the artwork I found a drawing on Pinterest and used a grid method to redraw it for myself. That was only for the sleeping woman, though, and I did my own freehand drawings of the blanket, water bottle and picnic basket.

My illustration was too large so I reduced it on my personal copier before tracing it onto Tomoe River paper (same weight and color as bible paper). I measured out and added the lettering before trimming the page to size and using a trimmer to round the corners.

This is a tip-in in my Journal the Word bible.

Refined and Rewarded
Topic: Bible Journaling

 Scripture for today in the Seeing the Scriptures class was Job 23:10. God keeps watch on us and he knows our actions. Through his testing of us we are refined, burning out the impurities and emerging as pure as gold.

I represented the gold with the presentation of a medal with hanging bars to enumerate the virtues being rewarded.

I designed the medal and traced it in Micron pen.


The coloring was done with Prismacolorcolored pencils (some metallic) and there were highlights added with gold glitter gel pen on the metal areas. The 'diamonds' have silver glitter gel pen. I added shading around the left and bottom of the medal's parts to give it dimension.

I have now done 4 pages using this class and there are 8 more to go to complete it.

On Bended Knee
Topic: Bible Journaling

 The next verse in the Seeing the Scriptures class was Exodus 14:14. It is about God fighting for us. I went with a quote instead of writing out scripture and illustrated with a drawing from an online tutorial.

All the pen work is done with a Micron pen and all coloring is Prismacolor Premier colored pencils.


This is in my NIV Journal the Word bible.

Doing What I Am Supposed To Do
Topic: Bible Journaling

 I'm finding that the scriptures selected for the class Seeing the Scriptures have often already been journaled in my bible. I have been working around this in three ways: 1) work in my interleaved bible 2) make a tip-in page for my most used bible 3) add more art to a page that has already been used.

For this page I used the third option. I only had fancy lettering of the scripture in the left margin. I added a simple illustration over the text to show how the scripture can be applied in my own life.


The illustration is done with Micron pen and I added just a bit of shading on the left bottom and around it with a regular graphite pencil. I smudged it a bit with my finger for blending.

Easy Peasy!

Hope In Him
Topic: Bible Journaling

I started another online class called Seeing the Scriptures. It teaches a way of doing study on your selected verse, working through a process of 'headwork', 'heartwork' and 'artwork', to guide toward designing something that is an artistic representation of that verse.

It can be applied to any art venture - jewelry, painting, quilting, or bible journaling.

In the first homework lesson we did the study on Isaiah 40:31. In my prior work with this verse I did the 'expected' bald eagle flying through the mountains.

This time my study led me to focus on having HOPE in God and how that gives us strength.

I wanted to incorporate the word into an EKG strip so used a piece of graph paper printed with pink and added light brown very thin lines to make the grid smaller. After doing the heartbeat and lettering I cut the strip and tore off the ends like one would see in the doctor's office.

I glued this into the bible and added the rest of the phrase in black pen.

I did a little shading on the right and borrom edges to make the strip look more dimensional.

Revisiting Four Old Artworks
Topic: Bible Journaling

I have been gradually taking photos of my old artwork and adding it to my interleaved bible along with writing out scriptures to accompany them.

Today I have four to share:

This acrylic painting is one I did while I was in high school art class. The subject is the farm that was across the field from our home in the country. I paired this with Jeremiah 29:5

Next is also an acrylic painting from the late 1970s. I painted this for my boyfriend (now husband) as he attended WAS, the home of the Cougars. Genesis 1:25 is its scripture.

Psalm 3:4 goes with this watercolor of Mt. Hood I painted in the 1980s.

and finally is this pen drawing of a church in Balderson, Ontario, Canada. I used Distress Inks with stencil brushes to add colors very lightly. Psalm 122:1 suited this perfectly.


I will continue to add photos of old works as I come across them again.

Colored Pencils on Vellum
Topic: Bible Journaling

The last class in Colored Pencil Jumpstart ended with us back in our bibles.

We stamped an image on vellum then colored white and other light colors from the back followed by brighter colors on the front, leaving the back colors showing through for highlights.

I did not have any stamps like what the instructor was showing so I elected to stamp with a wood-mounted maple leaf image. I made a border down the right side of the page with them.

Oh how I love the blended colors in these leaves.

I trimmed the page to size and lettered the scripture before using tape runner to tip it into the gutter.

Birds of the Air
Topic: Bible Journaling

For the Colored Pencil Jumpstart class the assignment was to use powdered lead from the pencils with blending solution to create a page in our bible.

I didn't want to work directly on the page in case it did not work like I wanted so I worked on a piece of Tomoe River Paper which is about the same weight/translucense as bible paper. I stamped an image on plain paper and placed it behind this blank sheet then dipped a cotton swab in the blending solution and into the ground colored pencil powder before coloring in the image I could see showing through.

When I was done I cut the page to size and lettered the scriptures (paraphrased) before tipping in the page using tape runner.

This was a great solution to having already journaled other scriptures on both facing pages where this passage was contained.

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.
