So Very Blessed Bible Art Journaling

Luke 1:45 reminds me of the God’s blessings for those of who rely and believe in Him.  I’ll admit, although I have been a Christian for years, I wasn’t growing as I should be.  I was still on milk and wasn’t taking in solid food.  But now, I feel that changing… as I journal in  His Word, and also I have started a class this semester with Faith Bible Institute, which I love.

Faith Bible Institute, is out of Monroe, Louisiana, but they offer remote programs that many churches offer.  It is a 6 semester program, or 3 years.  (No classes in summer).  During this 3 years, you go through the entire Bible.  It’s a 3 hour weekly class.  If you are interested, then go to their website and see if maybe a church in your area is offering these classes.

Let Your Light Shine

With Hurricane Harvey here, I have had lots of time to do my Bible art journaling.  This is one I did recently.  Matthew 5:16 reminds us to let our light shine for others so God may be glorified.  How hard this is sometimes, to always be positive and be a light.  Many times, as Christians, we are expected to act a certain way, but we are also human just like everyone else.  I am reminded in this verse, how important it is to maintain a positive attitude and smile, because what we do or say and how we act as a Christian can other lead others or steer others away from Christ.

This particular page was sketched out with a regular pencil, then I used Prisma colored pencils to color and shade.  The outline was done with an Ek Pen, that I bought on clearance from Hobby Lobby.  It doesn’t bleed.  No prepping was needed to do this page.

Tips on coloring and shading with colored pencils:

Start with the lightest color first.

Then use a darker shade to shadow.

I even used a light brown, very lightly,next around the fire flies.

I then go back to the main color, which was yellow around the fire flies and blend the darker color and brown in.

Here is a template I sketched for you to use.  This file is free for you to use.  Please do not sale.  Thank you.  Just click on the link below.
