Today I’m sharing a video to show you my bible journaling page process. I thought it would be fun to give you a “behind the scenes” look at how I do my pages. I’ve found that while the basics are the same, every bible journaler has their own methods.
I’ve also found that a lot of us enjoy watching other people paint. There’s something relaxing about it. Anyway, this video will show you a pretty typical process for me (and yes, it has a closed captioning option).
I love using watercolors because I find they’re the most forgiving medium to work with. I also use a regular pencil and eraser, Pentel aqua brush, the Illustrated Faith precision pens, the Faber Castell India ink Pitt brush pen (B), and the Signo Uniball white gel pen.
Normally, I like to do a page in one sitting but this page ended up taking 2 hours over 3 days. Believe me, they are not all like that! I think I average 30-45 minutes per page, depending on how complex I make the page.
I usually go in with an idea from a devotional, sermon, or worship song. For this page, I really just wanted to put a mermaid in my bible so I looked until I found a verse that made sense. That may not sound super spiritual of me but I like to be real. I also feel like I’m praising God by using the gifts He gave me to create a page about praising God, so while it may not sound terribly enlightened it’s still about directing my attention and thoughts to Him.
So there you have it friends, a peek inside my bible journaling process! You can see more of my completed pages by clicking on the Bible Journaling tab at the top of this page or by following me on Instagram.
