He watches over you...


Hello. Sharing some bible journaling today. I am currently working on a two week devotional from Illustrated Faith. It is the I am strong kit. This journaling is based on Psalm 121.  I used watercolors from Prima's tropicals collection. I outlined everything with a black pitt pen. I also added some white flecks with a white gel pen to the orange sky. Here is Psalm 121:

Psalm 121

A song of ascents.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—
    he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you—
    the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm—
    he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
    both now and forevermore.

Bible Journaling: Bravery and so much gratitude

Hi, there! Sharing another bible journaling entry with you. I am currently doing the "Uninvited" study by Lysa Terkeurst, so my entries will reflect what I am studying in the next several weeks. Isaiah 53. A powerful reminder of the rejection that Jesus faced through out his lifetime and the suffering he willingly took on for me. What a blessing to know that when I feel rejected or fearful, I can look to him to for strength and bravery.  Countless times in my life I have rejected him, looking for acceptance everywhere but through him. And despite it all, he forgives me and wants me.

I used gelatos to color this page. I also used stamps from Bossy Joscie and the Illustrated Faith kit, "I Am Strong". I added details with a white gel pen and then stamped "thank you" in white ink onto the black hill at the bottom of the page.

Bible Journaling: Living Loved

Hello! I have recently dived into bible journaling and decided to share what I have been doing on my blog. I found that I was having trouble getting back into a creative groove. Mixing my faith and my art seemed like a good place to start, and I am so glad that I decided to mix these to parts of my life together!
I am currently doing a bible study in my women's group. "Uninvited" by Lysa Terkeurst.  The first session talks about living loved, so I wanted to journal Ephesians 1:4-5.I used paper elements from Bella Blvd./Illustrated Faith "She Blooms" collection.
I hope you enjoy looking at some of my journaling and I welcome any cool tips or tricks that you may have to offer, since I am a newbie at this. :)
