I Wait For Your Salvation {Journaling Bible Entry}

 Journaling Bible Entry

I tried something new in my Journaling Bible. Paint. Can you believe it?? Wow. I’m not an artist at all, but abstract? Well, I can kind of handle that because it’s not supposed to look like an object or a person when it’s done. 😉

I have been so inspired by Shanna from Illustrated Faith and her Journaling Bible that I decided to give it a try. I have to say, I’ve been won over. {If you haven’t been over to her site, be sure to check it out! This video where she showed HOW she used this paint REALLY helped me. I am so visual!}

I wasn’t ever going to try paint until I watched this video and Shanna showed us how EASY it is. This paint is so light and does NOT bleed through the pages!! Isn’t that awesome??

I also want to add that you can see where I MESSED UP in the top picture. The darker spot where “for your” is…I had written in those words and didn’t like it at all. Now it is more obvious that I messed up, I put paint over it. But, I’m so encouraged because it hasn’t made me love the process any LESS or made me love this entry any less. I think the imperfection is part of what I love so much. The process. The “digging in deep” and really focusing on the words of this passage.

Using Paint in Journaling Bible

So, I took a few pictures along the way…I hope you are inspired as well!

Using Paint in Journaling Bible

As seen several places online, I used an old gift card to “scrape” my paint across the page. I can’t emphasize enough how amazing this paint is. It truly is so LIGHT, you can still see the words through a thin layer AND it doesn’t bleed through the page!

Label makers are SO FUN.


This was so fun! I anticipate trying this a lot more in my Bible. What about you? Have you ever used paint in your journaling Bible? Are you willing to give it a try?

I'm just a messed up mama in need of God's fresh new mercies daily. My husband and I live in beautiful East Tennessee with our 3 children. God has taken me on a journey through the valley of depression and is teaching me to pray the Scriptures as a result. I hope and pray that you will be encouraged whenever you stop by this little place on the web.

  1. Beautiful Candace! I haven’t tried the acrylic paint yet, just started with watercolor a couple of days ago. I am completely sold on this process of Bible journaling. It’s amazing how the verse I’m working with sticks with me in a very visual way now.

  2. Hello from New Zealand, I am just new to this and so excited I have just placed an order for my bible!! I am loving the fb page ‘journal bible community’ which is how I came across your tutorial here 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing, it’s good to see the products being used now I just need to find them!
