Bible Journaling

I have a Journaling Bible that I bought specifically for taking my favorite scriptures and adding pictures and color to them. It is my way of meditating on these verses as an artist. I bought the Bible in 2015 but only did a few pages...and was very timid in my artwork, completely worried about messing up my Bible. But, this year I have become more bold...and I have made it more of a priority to me....no matter how it turns out.... to meditate on verses and add color and art. (**Side note... This is the only Bible that I do this to)

I always highlight the verse and point an arrow to the verse.... and I make some kind of a tab that sticks out of the Bible edges and marks the page...so I know what pages have been illustrated.





Some are more detailed ...and some are very simple. 

I am thoroughly enjoying myself :0)

And that is what it is all about... Right?

I love this idea. Even saw a journal Bible in a gift shop that had extra margin room for doing illustration and art work. An excellent approach to meditation and study.

Very beautiful. I do would be vary of "ruining" it but I see that you have just created something beautiful and it's a great way to meditate on God's word.
