Today’s post is for Bible art journalers and other crafty folks, with a Christmas gift idea, a free resource and a blog with great ideas for art journaling! Wow! This one is loaded!
First, the gift idea! I have heard folks say the only thing they don’t like about art journaling in their Bibles is that the 2-3″ margins aren’t big enough, and they don’t like to cover the words of scripture! The soon-to-be-available Interleaved ESV Journaling Bible might be just the Bible for you then! There is a blank canvas to compliment every page! It will be available March 11, 2016 but you can pre-order now at a reduced rate. You can check out all the details on move-the-mountains.com. (I recommend exploring that blog too — great resources and ideas!!)
Second, here’s a resource for art journalers and anyone else wanting to get creative with Advent: free downloadable Advent scripture cards from Displaying Grace blog. They support a wonderfully creative Advent study, also found on the blog. Tons of great family activity ideas and free printables to help make this a memorable and thoughtful CHRISTmas season.Continue reading
I LOVE the idea I’m sharing today! Sara Laughed is a fun and creative blog and this year she is doing a Bible journaling challenge called Advent Illustrated. Throughout the Advent season (from November 29th to December 24th), Sara will share a Bible verse, starting with Genesis and extending to the nativity story. She will also provide creative prompts for folks who need a little bit more inspiration. Everyone is encouraged to share their art journal project on her Facebook page or on Instagram with the hashtag #AdventIllustrated.Continue reading
Visual Blessings is a wonderful blog all about art journaling and Bible Journaling. The blog author is artist and workshop presenter Valerie Sjodin, whose personal motto is to “Love God, Serve Others; Make It Beautiful.”
I love this creative idea! It would be great for art journaling, Bible art journaling, and scrapbookers. Perhaps you want to create a reminder of God’s faithfulness; a book of your favorite scripture verses; compile pictures of people and missionaries you pray for; or have a reminder of a mission trip you went on. I think this meandering book would be a great option for all these ideas and many more.
This week’s creative resources have been all about Artist’s Journals and Art Journaling! Hopefully you’ve found some creative inspiration.
Keeping in line with Facebook Friday, I wanted to share a couple of Facebook groups specific to the week’s topic of art journaling. So if the week has inspired you, perhaps you should join to connect with others who art journal to keep you motivated? Continue reading
Also, the link below was from March 2014 and there’s no reason all ideas couldn’t be applied to March 2015 (or any other year) as well! 🙂 You might want to start at the bottom of the page and work your way up through the posts on this link to see the process from last year:Continue reading
