Sunday Bible Journaling ~ The Star over Bethlehem

Click on the photo to enlarge.

To illustrate the nativity of Christ I chose to show what the Magi might have seen while following the star, with the town of Bethlehem tucked in the hills.

Of course, Jesus was a couple of years old by the time the Magi came bearing gifts, but it is part of the Christmas story just the same.

I sketched out this image in pen as usual but colored it with watercolor.  That's where the ripples in the paper came in.  The star is a bit hard to see, but it is colored with silver metallic pen.

A very simple design.

Just Not Right Thursday


Is there a winch included to haul your vehicle up to the garage?

Sunday Bible Journaling ~ Unusual Madonna & Child


A beautiful medieval painting of the Mother of God and Christ.  I find it unusual in that there is so much black in it without being dismal.  This is a calendar page I saved and it covers a page of charts.  I find the painting more inspiring than a chart any day.

Sunday Bible Journaling ~ Tapestry of the Fishermen

Here's a photo I cut out of an antiques magazine many years ago.  The original item is a tapestry and I thought it was beautiful and perfect for the beginning of the New Testament.

There are no rules for bible journaling, use what you have, draw what you want, paste in what you like.  For me, it makes it all come to life that much more.

I agree with Alice in Wonderland: And what is the use of a book," thought Alice, "without pictures or conversation?"

I love the pictures but aren't you glad the bible is part of God's conversation with us?
