Yesterday I went with a friend to an Illustrated Faith workshop in Virginia. We heard Shanna Noel speak of her journey as well as Lisa Hickman on writing in the margins. I honestly didn't think I would be able to do much as I prefer to create in my own little space with everything around me... and in peace and quiet! As you can imagine, it's not very quiet with 160+ women in one room. :) But it goes to show you that you only need some inspiration, pencil, Micron pen, eraser, and watercolor pencils... and because I'm me and I'm OCD that way, a compass.
This first page was inspired by my friend next to me:
I'm going through Revelation with Bible Study Fellowship and this is so true! Everything points towards Jesus.
The next one is just a tiny illustration from a sermon that Shanna Noel played. I don't usually read the Message version of the Bible but the visual for Colossians 3:9-11 was really great. In case you can't tell, it's a tag from inside a shirt because "Every item of your new way of life is custom-made by the Creator, with his label on it." I will probably go back and thicken the red letterings on the creator and make the T look more like a cross. Thanks again, Julie, for the tag idea!
The next section is on wives and household so I had to leave some room for that later! Haha!
There was also some extra time for journaling between testimonies and the speakers. I had thought about this one for a awhile so I finally did Hebrews 6:19. This was done with a Micron pen, watercolor pencils, and an anchor stamp.
For all three entries, I drew and lettered lightly in pencil. Once I was satisfied, I then went back and did everything with a Micron pen. I added just touches of color with some brown and blue colored pencils. But I brought along ink pads, stamps, sponge daubers, baby wipes, ruler.. I was prepared! :)
I had a very sweet table - so encouraging and friendly! It's really neat to see women excited about the Bible journaling and I even met someone from my church there!
