My first bible journaling page

Wednesday June 28, 2017
I have been watching bible journaling for quite while and love how people are so creative and knew I wanted to do this. 
 I have been going to a bible study group and was talking to a couple of the ladies that do the bible journaling and they get together a couple times a month to just do bible journaling.
So I went to her house and she had some photos of different images that went with certain verses. Well some are quite detailed and some are simpler. Since this was my first attempt I went with simple plus I liked this one better. It spoke to me at the time.
I started by creating the cross first with just a ruler. Drawing out the cross. Then I drew on the vine and then drew on some flowers and leaves. They are colored with colored pencils. I don't want anything to bleed through the thin paper and I didn't want to do the gesso trick. So this is what I created. I tried to keep it simple but have fun. Sure it's probably not proportioned right but this is new to me and I am not an artist with training. I do love it and look forward to the next get together.
This bible also has pages where you can color in the printed images, scriptures that came with the bible. It is a journaling bible so if I did not want to draw in the bible I could still color.. but I do like to create my own pieces. I will probably post my next creative piece.  Hope you enjoy this and or I inspired you. That is how I got inspired by watching videos and seeing others posting their creative art pages.
