My Weekly Bible Journaling #10


Hello friends!

This was a quiet week due to illness being passed around and around and around at our house. Now we have one with a  stomach virus. Praying he gets well and that he is the only one infected.

Update – Late last night my husband took our son to the hospital and they found he has appendicitis. Please pray for him.

Here are the pages I completed this week:


The background of this page is made using four different brand colored pencils that I blended with Gamsol. I wanted to try them out and see which ones worked better. I am happy to report that they all blended well.  They really give this page a soft look and I love all of the blues!


Earlier this week I saw that Our Daily Bread Designs is hosting an ODBDSLC284 Anything goes with ODBD Stamps challenge. So I pulled out my new stamps that I haven’t used yet and came up with this. Hubby and the kids loved it and I am so pleased to be stamping in my Bible!

If you are looking for beautiful Scripture rubber stamps you should really check them out! I have been a customer for years and I am always pleased with each of the stamps I have purchased.


This verse really made me think this week:

How many times do we complain about how hard our lives are? Do we ever think about how that makes God feel? While whatever we are going through might be hard and we are struggling, we should always remember that God blesses us each day. We need to thank Him for those big and small blessings.


This page is my entry for this week’s The Message Canvas Bible Giveaway. I played around with the picture on my phone and I thought that this was a fun layout.

Just go to this website to learn more: #ColorTheCanvasBible #TheMessageCanvas

In case you missed it this week I reviewed Uchida 24 Piece Colorin Watercolor Pencil Set and showed how they can be used in your Bible. I hope it helps give you some ideas…

    This is lovely, Paulette. We too have had the sickness running through our house. I love how you have turned such a talent into both therapy and devotion time. This will also be the most precious hand-me-down you can give your kids. Praying for your son and the appendicitis. If you’d like to share this on my blog, I’ve just started a new Sunday Thoughts Link Up. You are welcome to join!

    • Dani says:

      Thank you for your sweet and kind words! I would love to give a Bible like this to each of my kids which means that I need to make 7 more! That should keep me busy for several years!

      Thank you for your prayers!! I made sure to link up on your blog! 🙂

    Your Journaling is very pretty. I’ll have to look up Gamsol….I’m not familiar with that product/term. I follow several who journal and just recently did one with watercolor and salt. Was fun. Enjoyed seeing what you’re journaling. This week starts the book of Luke for me, but I don’t journal each day. ~hugs~ and I said prayer for your babykins for healing. 🙂

    Thanks for visiting and linking.

    • Dani says:

      Gamsol is an artist-grade, less toxic odorless mineral spirits. This liquid results in a pretty, almost watercolor-like look since it essentially melts the pencil lines and erases their grainy appearance. Basically it blends colored pencils and gives it a smooth look. I have used it for years and I love it!

      Thanks for the prayers. He is home but in a lot of pain today. 🙁

  3. Kaelynn Judd says:

    Your journaling is stunning! What a creative and beautiful way to meditate on Scripture. Thanks for sharing some of your tricks. I’m not a naturally artistic person, but this inspires me to try harder.

    May the Lord have mercy on your son and grant him healing. <3

    • Dani says:

      Thank you for your sweet words! It is such a wonderful way to mediate and learn the Scriptures! You don’t have to be artistic, just create whatever you feel led to do.

  4. Chris Olsen says:

    Each and every page of your journaling is beautiful!! I love your use of the hummingbird, verse and scripture to create your own journaling page. This is a great way to meditate on scripture. Thanks for joining us at ODBD!!

    • Dani says:

      Thanks so much for having a fun challenge that I can join in! I love using these ODBD stamps in my Bible and I plan on doing it again soon! 🙂

    I love your Bible illustrations and the verses. It’s so beautiful and so happy you shared at Dishing it and Digging it link party.

  6. Liz Giertz says:

    So beautiful! I’ve only just begun to dip my toes into Bible Art Journalling, but I could easily see getting hooked on it! Your pages are gorgeous! Praying for your son’s speedy recovery. Blessings!

  7. Christy says:

    Wow, these are absolutely beautiful! I have only been doing the pencil crayon thing in mine..i haven’t been brave enough to branch out into the paints etc. Your pages are inspiring!

  8. Debbie Kitterman says:

    Paulette – praying your son is on the mend from his appendicitis. Whoa, so glad they discovered it. I love your journal pages and I am so very grateful to have you linking up with me at #TuneInThursday and I look forward to having you join me in the weeks ahead!

    Oh, by the way, I think I have the very same metallic watercolors you have pictured here, but I am always afrid to use them in my Bible journal – you have inspired me – thank you for sharing your art with us all.

    • Dani says:

      Thank you for your prayers!

      These watercolors work great in my Bible. I really like how they look and add a bit of shimmer to my pages. 🙂

  9. Sabrina at Kids Crunch and Christ says:

    I hope your son is doing better! Beautiful work as always!! I would love to learn more about blending the pencils. Thanks for linking, look forward to this week’s entry.

    • Dani says:

      I am going to be working on a post that shows that very soon! Blending colored pencils is a lovely way to add color to your pages.
