Illustrated Faith - Bible Journaling

Here are several of my illustrated bible pages which I haven't had time to post. If you'd like to learn more about this new movement to combine worship and creativity, check out Shonna Noel's group, Illustrated Faith here. There are many resources and ideas on the website. There is also a Facebook you can join.  The Little Blue House also has occasional classes on Bible Journaling as well as a "Faith Friends" monthly meet-up and a Facebook group. You can learn more about these here.

Some of my early pages:

Psalm 46:1- God is our refuge and strength
Background of washi tape strips with stickers and handwriting

Proverbs 3:5 - Trust in the Lord with all your heart
Simple paper cutouts and stickers

Romans 12:12 - Be joyful in hope...
Traced quote from Stephanie Ackerman and added doodles;
colored with Wink of Stella and watercolors

1 Cor. 7:7 - Lead the life God has called you to
Distress ink and embossing folder rubbing; watercolors

Psalm 37:3-9 - Trust in the Lord and He will act
Gelatos on a stamp; card tip-in with washi tape

You can see that these pages can be as simple as writing some journaling or adding a few stickers and images or they can use more "artsy" products if that is your style. I am having fun trying out lots of art materials I have on hand - my one requirement is that they are translucent so the words can still be read.
