Bible Journaling {the Finale}

Hello friends!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you may know I’ve been slowly working my way through the Bible, a chapter at a time, and writing out my favorite verse from each day’s reading in a little sketchbook. Well, I finally reached the end of the Bible and filled up my 17th sketchbook! I wanted to show you guys a few of my favorite lettering pieces from the last journal or two.

Enjoy!

Before we start, here’s a shot of all the journals. It was so neat to look through them and see my favorite verses… and watch my hand lettering drastically improve over the course of six years, haha.

Starting with a pretty, doodle-filled one. It takes so long to fill in the words and make them dark like this but it always looks amazing in the end.

Sometimes I may have a bit too much fun with flourishes…

PXL_20230321_145949931

More flourishes and bold lettering! I don’t usually write bold fonts but when I do, they end up being my favorite pieces.

PXL_20230321_150033543

Possibly my favorite verse in the Bible. I kinda wish I did a better job with the lettering but ah well.

This is one of my favorite pieces from the entire set of journals. The combination of fonts, contrasting line weights, and airy doodles go so well with the content of the verse.

This one’s kinda messy but too fun not to share. I couldn’t resist adding fruit doodles to the verse about the fruit of the Spirit.

Knockout lettering is a faster way to make thicker fonts because you don’t actually fill it in. I like the unique look of the hollow letters here.

PXL_20230321_150140566

A simple illustration can really add to lettering, especially if you make the letters interact with it like I did here.Β

Not exactly sure why I added clouds here but hey, it works! It helps balance the piece and fill in white space. (Also this is such an empowering verse, isn’t it?)

PXL_20230321_150220921

Another of my very favorite Bible verses. ❀ It brings me so much comfort that Christ empathizes with me and has paid the price for me to walk into God’s presence, approaching Him as my Father. The contrast of God’s majesty and intimacy never fails to amaze me.

PXL_20230321_150257468

Sometimes I highlight important words or phrases in a verse by making them bold.

PXL_20230321_150316525

I don’t often combine brush lettering with the second font here but I rather like it!

PXL_20230321_150324788

Another favorite. A simple wreath frames shorter quotes or verses beautifully.

PXL_20230321_150332697

I really like the mix of fonts and line weights here, as well as the dynamics of the words and their positions.

PXL_20230321_150338568

An inspiring verse and another “THIS TOOK ME FOREVER but turned out great!” page, haha.

PXL_20230321_150343153

The little hearts filling some of the letters turned out so cute. πŸ™‚ Another favorite verse.

PXL_20230321_150357017

Probably one of the most famous verses in the Bible. Not sure what this font is supposed to look like… maybe ropes?

PXL_20230321_150400166

Simple but pretty: flourishes and doodled flowers.

PXL_20230321_150420254

An interesting mix of fonts here, including a woolly one for the word “Lamb.”

PXL_20230321_150437082

I tried to fit the letters and words into each other here like a puzzle instead of just writing them in a straight line. It added so much more interest to this simple piece.

PXL_20230321_150447410

Yet ANOTHER favorite Bible verse. I love the hope and glory at the end of Revelation. I find the literary beauty of the Bible wonderful. Reading through the whole thing opens your eyes to the constantly repeating themes.

PXL_20230321_150459605

What a beautiful way to end these Bible journals. ❀ Amen, come Lord Jesus!

PXL_20230321_150502675

I hope you guys enjoyed the hand lettering inspiration + encouragement from God’s Word! I sure enjoyed this project and I already miss doing this in the mornings. ❀ Highly recommend this type of journaling if you’re looking for a creative way to interact with the Bible.

Which page was your favorite?

Thanks so much for reading, my friends, and have a lovely day.

  3. What beautiful calligraphy, Allison! Love your handwriting. My handwriting is a joke in my family; they try to translate it. I should pay them, haha! πŸ˜‰
    It was encouraging to read those dear verses, as my heart has been anxious. I love all the ones you did, but my favorites are from 2 Corinthians 13:14, James 1: 2-3, 1 Peter 2:9, 1 John 3: 1 (love the hearts in the words), and the last two from Revelation. Thank you for sharing your Bible journaling with us!
    God bless,
    Valentine

    1. Aww that was such a sweet comment! Thank you Simone. ❀️ Yes, it’s really good for dwelling on Scripture rather than just reading it through quickly as I tend to do. So glad I was able to inspire you and that you enjoy reading my blog. ❀️
