Art Journaling in my Bible

 I have always been curious about art journaling. I love water colors and acrylics, and even my own naive drawings but found that I had little inspiration or motivation when staring at a blank journal. Then in late 2014 I saw a blog/IG post by Shanna Noel. She had fused art journaling and a faith based inspiration right in the margins of her bible. A HA!  

I found a verse that supported my "one little word" for the year. I used some letter stickers and a rub on right in the margin in my bible and placed a little tab on the side. Wow! My heart was hooked! 

I thought I would share what a completed books of the Bible looks like. By following an online bible devotional, I journaled through 1&2 Timothy. It has a variety of styles of journaling. That works for me.

I had many studious inductive study notes in 2 Timothy already in the margins, so I included a mini folder to hold highlighted passages.
I was created to create. This is a good thing for my heart and soul. 


  1. I am so glad to see more posted about art journaling in Bibles. I am wanting to be part of this craft. I need to get back into the Word, and I think this is the way. Thanks so much!

  2. SO good!!! I was creating with the IF Shine Your Light print/pray download this morning and it made me think of you (yesterday you said your word for this year is SHINE:) you have this download? (if not, I could print you a couple of things from it and see if I could leave it in an envy for you at TM when I'm through at the end of the month? ...tho, like me you might want the digital files for yourself too!:) Blessings!!
