An Inside Peek at Watercolor Bible Journaling

It was February of last year when I met Cristin. We had occasionally said hello to each other but never developed a friendship until we bumped into each other on the Illustrated Faith instagram page. The idea of illustrated journaling in our bibles was something that Shanna Noel had just barely launched into a business and the idea intrigued both Cristin and me.

So here we are a year later, and after an invitation to teach an Illustrated Bible Journaling workshop at the Women’s Retreat for our church we gladly accepted. Two weeks ago, as we watched a storm blow in through the tall pines outside the wall of windows, 45-50 women created wonderful watercolor and ink illustrations.

Knowing that some of the ladies might be tentative to draw in their bible at this first introduction to the idea, we encouraged them to create a bookmark or use in their retreat journal if that made them more comfortable. 

Cristin and I were elated by the comments and delighted with the results. Here are some snapshots of the day and some new journal entries I made in my own bible. Enjoy!!
