Remember Grace Bible Journal Page
Well, I started off the year with a goal in mind of doing one bible journaling page every week. So now that we're into the 3rd full week of January, I took a little time to work on that goal (at least for this week). The month didn't get off to the right start as planned, but only missing two so far isn't such a bad thing! It's a goal, not a rule, right?
I wanted to do a page that addressed speaking and acting with grace, because I knew I could definitely use the little reminder and apparently I needed it. LOL! So I first found the perfect verse using a bible app that I have on my phone (it finds verses according to subject matter--it's awesome!). Proverbs 16:24 stood out to me, so that's where I decided to journal in my bible. I knew I wanted to pull out some of my VERVE stamps (MANY of which are perfect for bible journaling), and as I started looking through them, I realized I had that exact verse in a stamp! It's the PROVERBS 16:24 Plain Jane.
Because the verse references honeycomb, I also used THE BUZZ set to stamp the random honeycombs over my page that I first gave a watercolor crayon/baby wipe wash to for my background. Then I stamped the verse (my inkpad was a little dryer than I anticipated, but once you stamp onto a bible page, it's done--there's no redo!) and just used a Micron pen to draw the frame around it. I added several bees also from THE BUZZ set and then used the pen to highlight their little "buzzy" trail, making one of them accentuate my bible verse I was focused on. I added some little Bella Blvd. sticker letters (beeee-cause that's my favorite thing to do in my bible journaling), traced around them and then colored some of the honeycomb, the bees, and a few other things with a yellow Wink of Stella pen. It's really sparkly! It definitely will help me to remember "grace" with myself, others and my kiddos! I hope this page helps you too, to be "sweetness to the soul"!
