More Than You Ask For – Heaven Is Calling Lesson 7
Hello Everyone! Welcome to lesson 7 in the Bible Art Journaling Challenge series, Heaven Is Calling! We’re talking about page prep, stamping and coloring with pens! Faber-Castell Pitt Brush Pens! And that title for this challenge? You’ll have to watch the video to understand. 😉 Importantly, I’m doing something highly requested, that I’ve never done before.
I’m taking you “behind the scenes” of my Bible journaling planning, designing and thought process… a major request. A big video and it is full of tips on font pairing, stamping, page prep, coloring with pens, no bleed through and a whole lot more that is super simple to do! Trust me. You can do this.
Lets be honest, I’ve been so busy developing an exciting new online course for you (coming soon!), that I’ve got a lot of people saying they miss me. So, I’m taking some extra time with you today. More time than I’ve ever taken on a Bible Art Journaling Challenge before! This blog post will be brief because of time invested in my video lesson, but I think you’ll love it. And of course, look below for all the supplies featured and shown as I walk you through everything.
I’d love to hear from you in the comments below! If you’re new here, we have lots of helpful people in our community who pop into the comments and share ideas and thoughts you may want to check out. If you’ve not seen lesson one yet, I encourage you to start at the beginning so we can go on a journey together in this free 12-part devotional series. It’s not too late to join in (it never is!) and I’d rather you start anywhere, than not at all.
In this lesson, we’re carrying on with the Heaven Is Calling series theme, of connecting with a good God. I often trumpet the importance of reading context when trying to understand scripture. Today, I will do that again but really, I want to narrow in on a little piece of scripture that is so “lost in the midst of them”, that I couldn’t find any notes near it in all of my Bibles that I searched through. I’m a bit of a note taker and marker, as you can see from some of my Bibles…
If you’re new here, or, if you’re an old friend, either way… grab a tea or coffee, your Bible and any fun art supplies you like the look of and let’s encounter God through creativity in the Word…
I used my Double Column ESV Journaling Bible, for this lesson. The scripture for this challenge is Joshua 15:16-19.
16 And Caleb said, “Whoever strikes Kiriath-sepher and captures it, to him will I give Achsah my daughter as wife.” 17 And Othniel the son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, captured it. And he gave him Achsah his daughter as wife. 18 When she came to him, she urged him to ask her father for a field. And she got off her donkey, and Caleb said to her, “What do you want?” 19 She said to him, “Give me a blessing. Since you have given me the land of the Negeb, give me also springs of water.” And he gave her the upper springs and the lower springs.
And with that, enjoy the video, find the supplies below (or use what you have!) and comment below to share you thoughts, of what you’re learning and any questions too!
A quick interesting note I didn’t fully mention in the video, is that Faber-Castell Pitt Pens, although permanent and also quick drying, they have just enough time to blend with other colors if you create on top of page prep. Another fabulous reason to page prep in my opinion. I love what it makes possible.
