First, because I can be somewhat of a grammar freak….is “journaling” even a real word?? I think that if it’s not legit yet that it will be added as a word very soon. And it still blows my mind that new words can be developed. But that’s for another post…
I am always looking for new ways to get connected to the Bible. I love devotionals. I’ve done some word studies. I’ve even dabbled a little in learning Ancient Hebrew. And then I saw Bible Art.
This is a great connection of the Word and expressing it with Art. I’ve just gotten started but am having so much fun.
I am using a wide margin Bible. I prefer a KJV. This particular Bible has an amazing cover. I have a hard time getting to actually draw in it because my youngest likes to rub the cover. I’m starting to think it’s a sensory thing. It’s called “LeatherSoft”. And it does feel amazing. This particular one is also large print. Which means I don’t have to use my reading glasses. I mean if I had reading glasses. But, of course, I’m not quite old enough to need those yet. Or am I?
One thing I love about art is there is not a wrong way to do it. Well, I’m sure there are better and worse ways but art is open to interpretation. This is how I’m doing it. For now. But that’s not to say this is how you should or should not do it. I do not consider myself an artist by any stretch of the definition so please be kind.
Here’s a little of what I’ve done so far. Remember, I said be kind.
This is soooo much fun!!!
I’ve got a Pinterest board dedicated to Bible Art where I am gathering ideas and inspiration. If you do Bible Art, please leave some links in the comments because I’d love to see it!!
