A non-expert’s overview of Bible Journaling

letter-h-hello-animation

Today I’m going to be sharing a HUGE post about bible journaling. We’ll talk about my favorite supplies, some art I’ve done, my bible, and we’ll even look at some art inspiration. Are you ready? I sure hope so!

To bible journal, you need a bible, so I’m going to show you guys mine.

Non-referrer link to Amazon- I bought it when it was $24 from this seller

I bought my bible in January of this year, and it’s held up beautifully! As you can see from the picture, it’s gotten rather splotchy (I have no idea how it could get dirt on it, lol) but it’s not that big of a deal. It’s also available in hot pink, but I didn’t want that. At first I planned on getting a bible cover as well but I haven’t had any need for one, so I don’t plan on getting one.

None of the pages are falling out or anything like that, and the paper is very nice. It’s not super thin like most bible’s pages, but it’s not too thick either.

I highly recommend this bible for someone who has just started bible journaling and doesn’t want to “mess up”. There are lots of simple line drawings, which are awesome and very creative (nothing I could draw, lol). Bible journaling has also really improved my hand lettering, so I’m comfy with doing lots of art, and I also put sermon notes in it.

Now for the fun part, XD! I’m going to show you several art example and try my best to add the supplies I used.

 

They’re not all very good pictures or art, but I love flipping through the pages and looking at all the pieces of art I’ve done.

  1. These are gorgeous. I don’t know why some of the photos refused to show up…?

    By the way, how’d you made that “Hello” that moves on its own for your post beginnings? I want to do the same thing on my blog.

    • Thanks, Zella! I’m so sorry, that happens to me on random blogs sometimes too 😦
      I made it with befunkey (design program) by making each letter (h he hel hell hello) and then uploaded each one to google photos, then compiled it into an “animation”. Sorry that’s probably super confusing, lol! There are also lots of gif makers that are free online too.
