Bible Journaling with the Letter B

Catching up after the computer disaster of 2016!  Yay!

I have been doing a lot of Bible Journaling lately - here are two pages I did this week using DRS Designs images.

I did this top page using the Impossible Faith Greeting and the Big Mouth Bass image.

On this page I used the DRS Designs Hot Air Balloon image. I have used this image on a few pages in my Bible - it works for many differ scriptures and you can color up or decorate the image so many different ways.  I colored the page using water color pencils and a Micron Pen.  I stamped the images in a light ink and went over them with the Micron Pen - that way I don't have any bleed through.  This page is also for the current DRS Designs Challenge which is to use something that starts with a "B" on your creation.  I used balloons and the color blue and I did it on a Bible.



  1. HI Nancy - I am loving your Bible Journaling - I am going to look for one today! Yippee - I tried doing some in my regular study Bible but I am thinking it is going to get too THICK and not be that workable - I have seen this around for some time but now it is time for me to start doing this - as I am falling in love with viewing everyones art work! I like using the stamps!! And I have my share of those - will get some nice highlighters too - not sure I am going the paint route or water coloring - I shall see - thanks for getting me inspired!!
    Have a blessed day!

  2. Fabulous pages Nancy, the 'Impossible Faith Greeting' is so true.
    Have a lovely weekend.

  3. Hi Nancy! I did it! I purchased my Journal Bible today - come read all about it here

    as I give you credit - thanks for the inspiration!! Have a blessed week!

  4. Lovely pages Nancy! Love the concept of Bible journaling.

  5. Nancy, this is so lovely and what a wonderful idea to do a Bible journal. Love it!

  6. A wonderful page, Nancy. I love the glitter on the fish and the happy little face of your big mouth Bass. I also love the hot air balloons, too. I have just done a few pages in my journaling Bible. I agree it is addicting. Hugs, my friend.

  7. How amazing! The fish and hot air balloons are such adorable details. Love the tabs on your Bible as well. Love seeing these, TFS!

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Bit of Tea, Horses, and a Cowboy

 I love when my children follow in my footsteps and beyond (only the cool footsteps, of course).   My daughter, Allie, has developed a love of tea.  She sent me this picture over the weekend of her having tea in her newly remodelled bedroom.   She was drinking Breakfast in Paris tea in one of her favorite thrift store mugs.  This is my ticket to the T-day gathering over at Elizabeth's blog .  To join us, all you have to do is have a drink related post (can be any type of drink).   The neighborhood horses have been gathering in our backyard for some reason. Our horse refuses to come up near our house because the lady who owns all these horses gives her much better treats.  They all jump the fences and visit everyone.  The mule in the picture is actually named after me because I named one of cows after the neighbor (he paid me back - lol). I gave them apples when they came on Sunday, and they have come back every day since - lol.  We had a bit of sadness yesterday when another neighb

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo
