Hi, I am back! It has been a while since I have blogged-but I am going to just jump back in! If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you know that I have embraced Bible Journaling trend, like crazy!!! This journey has been extremely enlightening, rewarding and LOTS of fun!!! I am in love the process, the reinforcement and celebration of the Word and the joy and peace it brings to my heart. This is not the bible my Gram gave me for my confirmation, it is a special bible just for this artistic journey. Invest in a journaling bible-there are many to choose from, they have an open margin just for artsy expression, then you will feel free to paint, color, draw etc beside the word. Some don't want to cover the words, some do, some are ok covering the words as long as they can still be read-there is no right or wrong as long as your heart is pure and loving-remember, this is your journey!
For this entry I challenged myself to use traditional scrapbooking supplies as my go to. I challenge you to do the same-you will see your next Scraps of Love (I may be a bit prejudiced, but seriously, the absolute best paper arts store in the land!) shopping trip with new eyes-and that is FUN!!!!!
For this entry, created about a year ago, I combined watercolor, doodles and products from Simple Stories You & me collection. I tell the students in my "Let's get Artsy with our Bibles, "we are from all different religions and backgrounds, but we all love art and we all love God, so it's all good!
