Bible Journaling was an amazing new world I discovered when The
ScrapGals interviewed Shanna Noel on their podcast. I was instantly intrigued by the combination of art journaling and my faith. Scrapping our faith is not a new concept. But the idea of intentionally creating art in my bible captured my attention.

At first I wanted to jump right in, buy a Bible and some real markers and stamps and start bible journaling. But I soon realized that if it wasn’t a digital project, it wasn’t going to happen for me. So I decided to change it up and put my own spin on the project. In January, I commited to creating a monthly art journal card, using my own doodles drawn on my Bamboo Spark along with digiscrap supplies. I’m creating 4×6 cards that I will get printed into a bound mini book at the end of the year. I’m playing around with different styles. Most of the cards also have a back to them where I took a screen shot of the verse on my ipad dressed it up in Photoshop.
One of my favorite parts of this project is seeing how other digital artists are doing their own things too! Team member SharonS is doing a series of verses on 12×12 pages. These will make an amazing picture book when she’s done!
Julie is doing a gorgeous series of more traditional layout-style pages.
Jenn Maddocks’ signature art journaling style is showing through her pages.
Are you doing your own spin on bible journaling or some other project? I’d love to see what you’re creating!
