5 Bible Journaling Art - Freebie! Proverbs 31:10

I have recently joined a Bible Journaling group called Documented Faith. We have weekly verses that we doodle in our bibles and then share them with the group! I've been doing all kinds of Art Journlaing over the past year and have found this group to be lots of fun with great people! I've created this image set for Proverbs 31:10, "A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies".

For this piece I used colored pencils and a couple of Gelly Roll pens.  1st step was to print the PDF onto regular copy paper. (my printer is running out of ink!)  Then I cut out the piece that fits in the 2" column of my journaling bible.  It doesn't have to be exact just trim the piece out.

Using some washi tape (cause it's easy to remove) I taped the piece face down to the back of the page.

Since our bible pages are so thin and transparent, it is easy to see through the column area.  Next step is to trace the image as you wish.  I have a tutorial coming soon on how to transfer the image onto the whole page with graphite paper.

Here is my traced image.  I decided to wait to do the sparkles free-hand.

These are all the pens I used.
  • Micron .005
  • Signo white gel
  • Gelly Roll Gold metallic
  • Gelly Roll Red Stardust
  • Gell Roll Clear Stardust
  • Derwent Watercolor pencil (not using water) - Crimson Lake
  • Derwent Inktense Watercolor pencil (not using water) - Violet

I filled in my words at the top with the Gold metallic pen.  After it completely dried I went back around the edges with my Micron pen.  I also filled in some sparkles and went over those with a Stardust pen.

For the Rubies word I filled it in with my Red Stardust Gelly Roll Pen! Pretty!
 And finally for the pretty Ruby (my own birthstone!)  I used the Crimson Lake pencil and colored it in lightly and then darker on every other section.  Then I went over the whole jewel with my Clear Stardust Gelly Roll.  Then used the Violet pencil to fill in some drop shadow.

I'm pleased with how it turned out.  A very simple design.

I hope you will enjoy it too!  I would especially love to see how you color yours.  Please share it with me!  You can leave a link in the comment of this post, on the Tiffany Doodles Facebook page, or add your photo to the Tiffany Doodles Flickr Group!

Hi Weze! Thanks for the compliments! The bible I have is the ESV Journaling Bible. I got mine from Amazon at Christmas time. Since then, the Bible Journaling community has exploded and they've been sold out everywhere! For more info on this amazing hobby get on facebook and do a search for these 2 groups.... Documented Faith and Illustrated Faith. They are both awesome and you'll find so much information you might get overwhelmed!! Hope this helps!! They are both really great communities! =) Hope to see you there!
