I love my journaling Bible. It’s pretty with a flower print on the outside covers. I’ve had it for nearly a year. It was a Christmas gift last year. I find Bible journaling intriguing. The act of art as a part of Bible study just makes sense to me. Still the pages of my Bible were unmarked until recently. I do a little bit of instructed painting, but I still don’t consider myself an artist by any stretch of the word. I was afraid to try to make pretty pictures in my Bible as they would inevitably not match the picture in my head. But then I got the chance to try out this Bible Journaling Kit!
About the kit:
Create a work of art in the pages of your favorite Bible. Draw, color, or journal your thoughts, dreams, and prayers. Highlight your favorite verses or the encouragements that speak to your heart with pencils, stickers, and tabs.
4 sheets of word stickers
4 sheets of alphabet stickers
24 tab stickers
8 colored pencil twists
1 journaling pen
1 pouch with adjustable strap to fit Bibles of all sizes
1 ruled page protector mat with tracing lines
This kit takes some of the guess work out of Bible journaling. It gives you the freedom to work at your skill level, and to develop your skills at your own pace. I love all the stickers! FYI: They are easy to take off the super thin Bible pages if you don’t like where you place them. You can go super simple and just use the stickers for a page.
Or you can get a little bit more complex with the tabs and the pencils. I used my tabs a little unconventionally on this page.
Note: I always see people coloring whole scenes over the scriptures in their Bibles and I never quiet got that because why would they make it so they couldn’t see the words? So, I bit the bullet and colored over a scripture I know well and have pretty well memorized just to see. I even colored over it a second time to make my picture a little darker. You can still see the words just fine.
This kit gave someone who wanted to try Bible journaling, but was a little afraid of it, the tools to dip my toes in. I love the results I got. I think I might even try drawing some pictures in the future. FYI: I still practiced on notebook paper before I actually wrote in my Bible.
