ABC Bible Journaling Community| Week 1 Challenge

I am so excited that bible journaling is spreading through the Apostolic Community.  There are many groups that do this, but now we have a group of our own peers: Apostolic Bible Community Bible Journaling.  Or for short, ABC Bible Journaling #abcbiblejournaling

To make it fun, each week we are going to have a challenge where you journal the chosen verse.  Then we hope you will share your pages and we can talk about what methods and products you used.  This community will also be a place of encouragement.  We all need this don't we?

 isaiah 41-10a

I chose Isaiah 41:10 for the first week because it is an awesome verse and there is a lot fearful things going on in this world. But also because there is a kind of fear that goes with bible journaling.  Every time I journal a page, I am hesitant because I do not want to ruin the page.  Well, this week I ripped my first page. {gasp} "FEAR" gripped my heart!  One thing I vowed when doing bible journaling, I was still going to respect the word of God.  I was not going to destroy the bible or cover his word.  It was going to still be a legible bible. Keep in mind, when you use water based color or liquid, you do take the chance of ripping your page. Especially when you are working with Pearl Ex or water colors.  When you use these mediums, you have to make sure that your page is absolutely dry.  I got in a hurry and rushed it!  But I was determined to make my ripped page beautiful again and I finished the page. With a little clear packing tape, you can't even tell it was ripped. FEAR NOT: Don't fear the process.....just create beautiful pages!!

Here is my page for Isaiah 41:10....

I look forward to seeing your pages! God Bless!

Journaling Bible | Hosea 6:3

It was a perfect day Saturday to journal this verse. We all need the refreshing rain! Lord, send down the rain!

 Mixed Media is very popular right now with bible journaling.  I definitely have to get out of my comfort zone to use this method on my pages.  I am so afraid that I will mess up!  But with mixed media, it is very forgiving.  Over the verses I was more careful, but I knew with the journal space, I could cover it up if I had to.  It is very pretty.....I think I like it.  :-)

Supplies Used:
  • Distress Ink
  • Metallic Paint
  • Inkadoo Stamps
  • Letters from my Stash
  • Shimmer Spray
  • Sharpie Markers
Until next time!! Have a blessed week!
