Inspire Bible Journaling, simple backgrounds


For the many people who have been begging for more Bible journaling – here’s one! I’m still only posting one every 4-6 weeks or more, it’s not a main staple for me, so I’m not able to create these videos more often.

I’ve shared the Inspire Bible before…and I wanted to share an easy background technique. You don’t even have to be a fancy painter or have fancy paints – I’m using ph Martins Hydrus Watercolors, but if you can puddle paint on a palette, and if you have baby wipes – you’re good to go.Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The background can be just part of a page or a full page. If you know how to paint flowers you could add a whole garden into the green background below – or do it in blue and make a pretty sky.Sandy Allnock Inspire Bible Journaling simple backgrounds

Some of you have asked if I could swatch the colors for the Hydrus sets so you can decide what you might want….here you go! Pin away.

  5. Your amazing art is a gift from God but an even greater gift is your ability to draw people closer to Him. Several months of poor health for me and my husband put a complete stop to any creativity. I just did not have the inspiration or strength. But that time drew me into spending a lot more time in Scripture and prayer which helped me heal and brought joy into a dark time. Now that I am feeling better (Praise God) I have started creating again slowly. Bible journaling overwhelms me so I decided to make Faith cards for myself. I fill the outside and inside with Bible verses, stamped images and lots of color. I had made one Faith card before I got sick and kept it where I see it often. I keep a journal during my Bible study and have a section of verses I want to turn in to Faith cards and have made several in the last few weeks. My hand writing is terrible so I print the verses I want in different fonts, sizes, etc and color over and around the printing. Making these cards totally came from inspiration from you with your Bible journaling. I love how you stress the importance of staying in the Word and not on products or techniques you use.

    Sorry for such a long post but my Faith cards are so meaningful to me so I thought maybe others who might be intimidated by so many pages in the Bible journals could find the same spiritual fulfillment on a different scale in making cards for yourself.

    God bless you Sandy!
