I am always looking for fun new ways to add text to my Bible pages.  I tend to find a verse I am really connecting with and then illustrate that verse in the margin.  Sometimes I use alpha stickers, and sometimes I free-hand it, other times I use stamps for the words.

Today I am going to show you a fun new way to add text to your margins using one of my  favorite things…washi tape!
Supplies you will need:
*  washi tape (you will want light colors and not a lot of patterns)
*  computer and printer
The first thing I did was hop on my computer and type up the verse that I wanted to add to my page.  I chose a Psalm of Ascent (Psalm 121) and used the first verse.  I kept the lines of each row short enough to fit into my margins and I also tried using different fonts for each line (just to mix it up a bit).
Next, you choose your washi tape and lay it right on top of your text.  Again, i am using a few different ones to see which I like the best for my final page.
Now pull up the wash tape and be amazed :)  You just created your very own text covered wash tape!  Add to your journal page and embellish.

    This worked so well!! Love this idea. I used the same verse in Psalms that you used, and will use it with other verses. Another way to illustrate my favorite verses! Thanks!
