Bible Journaling - Tracing if You Can't Draw

I have hosted a couple of Bible journaling workshops and the first comment I usually get is: "I can't draw." I am here to tell you that you do NOT have to be an artist to be creative in your journaling. In addition to other ways I have showed you, such as doodling, stamps, stickers, and using printables; you can also trace onto your pages.

My friend Bethany at Pitter & Glink has created another wonderful devotional, along with downloadable printables, which include some black and white ones, perfect for tracing!

Since the devotional is about worship, I chose to use the microphone as the focal paint of my page. The pages in my Bible are really thin, so you can easily see the picture underneath to trace. I initially traced the design with a pencil, then went back over with one of my fine point pens.

Once the ink has dried, you can easily erase the pencil lines and color your drawing.

I then used gelatos to create the water color look for the background and added lettering, stickers, and the cut outs to complete the page.
