The Good Portion – Heaven Is Calling Lesson 6
Hello Everyone! Welcome to lesson 6 in the Bible Art Journaling Challenge series, Heaven Is Calling! We’re talking about page prep and Inktense Pencils, (a real favorite of mine)! I’ve got a free traceable download for you, and cheats for how to develop your own hand lettering style.
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.
Carrying on from Lesson 5 on inviting God to dwell, we’re going deeper on this topic of connecting with a good God. We’re focusing on the good portion. You’ll see what I mean in the video but first, let’s look at the scripture for this challenge…
I used my Double Column ESV Journaling Bible, for this lesson. The scripture for this challenge is Luke 10:38-42.
38 Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” 41 But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, 42 but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”
I normally share more devotional on my blog post, but today, I’m going to let my video do the talking. Enjoy and grab your free download and any supplies below!

If you’re not familiar with Inktense Pencils, search on my blog and you’ll find several fun tutorials. Inktense pencils are not watercolor despite acting very much like them. Instead, they are an acrylic ink pigment that has been dried into a pencil core shape, to apply easily. Have you used Inktense? What do you think of it?

Very lovely! Since I have never done anything like this before, is there a method to how you pick colors that are next to each other in the drawing?
Have you every used Faber Castell Albrecht Durer watercolor pencils? How would you compare them to Derwent Inktense pencils. Thanks.

Beautiful! I enjoy watching your videos. You are an inspiration and blessing. Your videos are filled with such love for Jesus. May He continue to pour joy and blessings into your life.

You are a great teacher! I agree with the above comment about your voice. Very nice while teaching. Nice calm music in the background too. I was just thinking yesterday “I wonder when Rebekah is going to post a video, I miss it!” (: xo

Thank you for another great video. Love the second camera angle, really makes a big difference for me in seeing what you are doing. Gives me a clearer picture. Love today’s message. Thank you for blessing me with all your hard work!

Love the second camera, the close up makes it really easy to see clearly what you are doing. Thanks so much for all your inspiration. Keep up the good work. I always look forward to your next lesson.

Rebecka, you’re undispensible!
Love your tutorials on Bible Journaling.
What I wonder is this:
Can you replace Ranger Craft Paper with
common waxed paper you use
in the kitchen?

The additional camera angle is cool; very professional. I’m looking forward to finding out more about your new course. Will it be ready before the end of the year?

I truly enjoy your videos, instruction and devotion. Time with HiM is primary to your videos and teaching and I love it! I don’t always do what you’ve shown because I think it’s beyond my ability, but I watch and listen to your Bible teaching. I also really like the 2nd camera angle because I have a hard time seeing what you do – my eyes, not your videos ? thank you for being so generous with your talent.

Love Derwent Inktense. The color are rich and vibrant. The colors that you listed individually on the supply list are the colors that you used??
Thank you for sharing.

o.k. now I am lost” you trace the letters and then you erase them so how are you seeing them to color with them?

Sorry about that, trace and then erase lightly so that you can see a faint line instead of a dark one. Easier to see in real life. Try it on scratch paper. 🙂

Beautiful lesson. So much to learn from Martha and Mary.
