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!

  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!

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

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?  

Hot Air Balloons, Santa Fe, and Watermelon

Hello friends. Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.   When  I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team.  Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado.  Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well.  Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world).  Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me. Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too).  They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing.  For the travel blog video they got to go insid
