Give Me Jesus

Remember that journal I used when I first starting experimenting with illustrated Bible journaling back in early 2015? Well, I still share those first attempts at journaling when I introduce new ladies to this FUN and meaningful hobby.

It wasn't long before I "advanced" into a journaling Bible, so my Worship Journal isn't even half full. However, I do pull it out on occasion to try or demo a new technique ... which leaves some rather interesting looking pages, which I eventually go back to complete.

I was obviously taking some (scribbled) notes and trying out a large stamp on the page below before I returned to it months later and created a new illustration.


This page was based on INSPIRATION in last year's God Glory Art workshop and utilized a traceable from Jamie Dougherty. I simply added scrapes of acrylic paint for a background that covered up my scribbles while letting a little of the stamped block show through. After tracing the lettering, I filled it in with a Sharpie marker (because I wasn't worried about bleed through with the paint background) and gave it highlights with a white paint pen.


This was a FUN project that serves as a reminder that I need Jesus every day while giving this page a FRESH look!
