This is the last post before I take a break for the wedding + honeymoon, ah! More on that at the end of the post. Anyway, I decided to catch you guys up on some recent Bible journaling, and then realized that… I haven’t made one of these posts for a LONG time, oops. Scratch the “recent” part.
For years now I’ve been hand lettering my favorite verse or two from each chapter of the Bible as I read through it. I’ve made it to the book of Acts so far, but today we’ll just go through some of my favorite pieces from Daniel through Malachi.
Whether you’re here for the Bible verses or the hand lettering inspiration, I hope you enjoy this collection of journaling!
Almost every night I read a chapter of the Bible and copy down my favorite verse in a little notebook. I’ve been doing this for years while reading through the Bible a second time, and I’m happy to say I recently completed the book of Psalms! I thought I’d post a selection of my favorite verses and lettering pieces today. 🙂
The book of Psalms is filled with deep emotions, rich prayers, and beautiful hymns, and I’ve enjoyed capturing bits of them to easily look back on later. I hope you enjoy these reminders of God’s truth as well! You can see a few more verses from the beginning of Psalms here if you want to check out more of my Bible journaling.
Let’s get started!
If you’re on Pinterest or any other form of social media, you’ve probably seen the hand lettering trend going around. And I think it’s great! Hand lettering is a beautiful and useful skill. Unfortunately, it seems like I see the same type of post (“how to make faux calligraphy for beginners”) EVERYWHERE, and not much information beyond that.
So today I’m going to give you all some ideas and inspiration for how to take your hand lettering to the next level! I’ll be showing you some quick tips for how to format quotes, add flourishes and other fun extras, and more. If you need a refresher on basic hand lettering, check out my first post on that subject here.
Now that we’ve got that covered, let’s begin!
