A Tour Of Lacy’s Journal Bible
Quiver full of children bible journaling page: I drew this page with my black marker and colored with colored pencils.
Joyful noise bible journaling, Psalm 100- I doodled around this page with brush tip markers. I love the look without black outlines!
He gives the stars their names bible journaling page- First I put down star stickers, then colored around them with gelatos, then peeled them back up. The lettering was added with black markers, then embellished with white gel pens. For the last effect, I traced around the stars with a clear sparkle pen.
Faith bible journaling page- This page was achieved using only black pens and a white gel pen.
Nothing is too hard for you bible journaling page- on this page, I wrote in the words with a black brush tip pen, then added the background color around the words with gelatos.
Put on your new self bible journaling page- Inspired by this page, I covered the page with golden gelato hearts, then drew on the black, then outlined the hearts a bit with a gold colored pencil.
You are all children of God through faith bible journaling page- This was all drawn in the brush tip markers.
John 3:16 bible journaling page- My friend and I created these pages but putting down washi tape crosses, coloring and smearing gelatos around them, then carefully peeling it back up.
He is our hope/anchor bible journaling page, Hebrews- On this page I drew the anchor and rope with colored pencils, added the words in black marker, then added the surrounding color with gelatos.
Birds don’t worry, they sing bible journaling page- This page was inspired by our new baby chicks! Drawn in gelatos, some details added in colored pencils, and words drawn with brush tip marker.
Holy Spirit/Pentecost bible journaling page- I outlined the dove with black colored pencil (which can be read through unlike the markers) then colored the dove in with a white crayon. I painted around the dove with watercolor paints, which were resisted by the crayon, and added the Holy Spirit prayer with colored pencils when the watercolor was dry.
Pray bible journaling page- I made the chevron pattern in the backround with gelatos, then added the words with various black markers.
Prisoners of sin bible journaling page- I drew the outline with black markers, then added the silver and gold with gelatos and water with a paintbrush.
Good Shepherd bible journaling page: I wrote this one with my black markers, went over it with my white get pen, and colored around the words with colored pencils.
Be strong and courageous bible journaling page: This page was colored with my gelatos, then written over with my black markers once dry.
Count it all joy bible journaling page: Written in with my black markers, colored around with gelatos, then the details were colored in with colored pencils.
St. Francis of Assisi bible journaling page: I painted in the side column with black acrylic paint, then wrote over top with metalic paint pens and a white gel pen.
His banner over me is love bible journaling page: Drawn in my black markers, background faded with gelatos, detail color added with colored pencils.
Cross bible journaling page- this page was made by putting down a cross made from washi tape, then putting gelatos all around, blending them with a little water, then removing the tape. As with all my pages that get wet, I ironed it when I was finished. This page was also made in my study bible, but the gelatos are easily read through. I cannot cover the scripture! <3
Mary bible journaling page- I have attached a holy card over the page with washi tape. It is liftable to reveal the words beneath. This is a page from my study bible.
The true vine bible journaling page- this is another made in my study bible, but this time it’s a “lift-the-flap” page over the footnotes. Drawn with my black marker, and colored with colored pencils. The flap is attached with a piece of washi tape.
Love never fails bible journaling page: This one was made in my study Bible. I covered the footnotes with white gesso to make room for journaling, but didn’t like it as well as covering with white paint. It was outlined in my black marker, then colored with colored pencils.
Love is patient, love is kind bible journaling page: All outlines were made with black marker, then the hearts were colored with gelatos and blended with water. Light shading was added with colored pencil.
This Easter bible journaling page is in my Catholic Study Bible. I created the background colors using my pastel gelatos, then blended them with water. I added some shading with colored pencils, then outlined with a black marker.
Here’s a similar technique for the Easter page in my regular bible.
Good Friday bible journaling page: For this page, I taped off a cross using washi tape, then added color all around it with my pastel gelatos. The words were written in with my black marker, and the nails were drawn with colored pencils. I then added 3 big drops of red watercolor paint, and blew them down the page with a straw.
Palm Sunday bible journaling page: This page was drawn with my black marker, then colored in with my kid’s half-dry Crayola markers. I added the red with a colored pencil, and a strip of washi tape across the bottom.
The first Psalm bible journaling page: This page was outlined with my black marker, then colored with colored pencils.
Psalm 51 bible journaling page: I created the butterfly using a stencil and my gelatos. The fading background was also created with pastel gelatos, and blended with water. I wrote the words “Transform Me” with a silver marker, which did not bleed through thanks to the gelatos.
Seek the narrow path… Matthew 7:13. My favorite scripture verse.
This was my first attempt at a bible journaling 2 page spread. I used watercolors and a black marker to create this page. This was before I had gelatos, and if I were to do it over, I would use gelatos. I just like the dry texture of gelatos better and they’re easier to work with. But I love how the narrow path twists and turns around the scripture. 🙂 I placed clear page protectors behind the pages before painting, and ironed the pages flat when they were dry.
Trinity bible journaling page: This one was outlined with my black marker, and colored with colored pencils.
And here’s my very similar Trinity page in my Catholic Study Bible.
The Hail Mary bible journaling page: Outlined with my black marker and colored with colored pencils. I included the St. Maximilian Kolbe quote “Never be afraid of loving the Blessed Virgin too much. You can never love her more than Jesus did.
Bread of life discourse bible journaling page: Outlined in my black marker and colored with colored pencils.
This is the inside cover of my bible: 1 Cor 10:31 Whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God. I’ve always tried to use my artsy craftsy side for the glory of God, and this bible is the newest adventure in that pursuit. This page was outlined with a black marker, and colored with watercolor paints. I placed a clear page protector behind this page while I worked, and ironed it flat to make it smooth when I was finished.
My sewn cover for my journaling bible.
My bible bookmark with plenty of ribbons, and also a small rosary.
Here I have printed the hymn “On Eagle’s Wings” on vellum, and attached it over Psalm 91 with a strip of washi tape.
