Complete Guide to Bible Journaling
Creative Techniques to Express Your Faith
I’ve had so much fun over the past week with the new book: Complete Guide to Bible Journaling: Creative Techniques to Express Your Faith by Joanne Fink and Regina Yoder. Generally, I pick a Bible passage and then think about how to illustrate it. With this book in hand, I picked illustrations that would be fun to trace and thought of a verse to go with the pictures, but I stuck to the book of Psalms for something of a theme. What I discovered: Spending time in Psalms, tracing images, and meditating on the Word is profoundly relaxing. Illustrating a verse always helps me understand it better, but this experience was somehow different, maybe more peaceful.
If your journaling Bible is just sitting on your shelf, this book is a wonderful way to get your creative juices flowing!!! The book covers many different artist supplies and techniques, features artists, provides a beautiful gallery of ideas, and best of all includes a bonus section of traceable images and stickers. It’s great for beginners and has plenty of tips and advice for those with more experience, too. It’s clear from the pictures below that my favorite part of the book was the bonus section!
I really like Joanne Fink’s simple patterned illustrations. I can definitely see incorporating more of this style of drawing into my Bible journaling. I love that she starts with simple easy to draw shapes and makes the picture look interesting with varied line widths and patterns. It’s relatively easy to do. You can find even more inspiration in her book called Zenspirations.
The Complete Guide to Bible Journaling is an incredible resource. I improved some skills and had so much fun with all of the traceable images. With a Journaling Bible, some micron pens, some colored pencils, and this book, you would be well on your way to a wonderful journey!
