First Bible Journal Entry

This is my first one - other than the cover and I quite 
like how it turned out. 
I used regular enamel paints and alpha stickers I had
in my stash. The banner tag is a design from Penguin Eight.
Head on over to Illustrated Faith  as they have an amazing site
for faith and journaling inspiration.

I chose this verse - well actually it chose me - I use an Oswald Chambers
devotional - My Utmost for His Highest that a dear
friend gifted me. On that
day the verse was Hebrews 11:8. I just love what it said and 
felt compelled to  not only highlight it in the margin
as well as the verse.
The version of the devotional I have was written in the early
19th century so there is an English language
issue that I either look up in the dictionary or on line where
they have a contemporary version that helps with the translation.
I also have a different Bible translation that comes in
handy as well.

I have to admit it was really hard to get started - because its the Bible after all.
But once that first dab of paint hit, it opened up the creativity and
it became easy to highlight and pray over.
