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. :)
