Bible Journaling with Karen

Hello!  Karen here today to share some of my Bible Journaling.  This passage in Proverbs recently stood out to me as I was thanking God for leaders and friends. "Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another." Proverbs 27:17 As I reflected on this verse, I journaled in my bible using a combination of black pen, stamps, and watercolor pencils.

My first step was to write the key phrase in the margin. I gave it a free handed speech bubble shape and "pinned" on a small tack from the "Planner Notes to Self" Planner Stamps. I added a few more stamps from my favorite Faith stamp set, "Trust in the Lord." 

Then I grabbed my ColorIn watercolor pencils and shaded in the speech bubble and added a swatch of bright yellow on top of the crosses beneath it. It's so easy to get the smooth blending of colors with these pencils and a waterbrush. I added a bit of white to help the tack stand out and finish it off. 

Thanking God for leaders, friends, and family who have sharpened me.
