Bible Journaling with The Project Bin!

 I did it!  I did it!  

 I had two crafty goals set for myself in 2016: 
 Watercoloring (as you may have seen in this post!) which still makes me swoon!
  I am absolutely in my glory when I get to sit and paint ♥
And my other creative goal was to start in bible journaling,
a fad that has taken off like crazy in the crafting world.
It's such a wonderful way to combine faith and creativity,
reading and journaling The Word.

Let me start by saying,
I'm a novice :)
Like I'm not even baby steppin' - I'm still crawling!  LOL!
But, that's what I love so much about the process of creativity -
just roll up your sleeves, grab some brushes and pens and just have at it!
I have a long way to go, yes.
And I'm okay with that
 and look forward to the year ahead to enhance my bible journaling skills.

So, here is my first attempt at making a faith based coloring page!

I was beyond blessed to receive this NIV Journal the Word bible for free
from Zondervan Publishing for a review.
It is heavenly!  It has a simply gorgeous cover,
delicate pages and ample journaling space,
which as you can see here I just kept it simple with some doodle flowers
and leaves and an expressive yet bold sentiment stamp from 
The Project Bin stamps,
the #bff stamp set!  

I'm not overly familiar with the book of Hosea,
and this is just where I happen to land to give this a try!
What a wonderful way to read along while coloring and stamping ..
what wasn't familiar before, can be!

Please be sure to stop in over at The Project Bin
and see the many stamps they have for cards, scrapbooking,
bible journaling and so much more!

Big hugs, bigger blessings!

I'll add my card to these challenges:
