A couple supplies mentioned in the video | Journaling Bible | This is Ground Mod | Liquitex Paint

As noted in the video I bring both my Mod and my Bible to church. In my Mod I have one note book for taking notes in church, and another just for random notes or ideas that may come up.  A lot of illustration ideas come up while listening to worship etc,  I am always jotting down ideas!

Let me know if this sparks any questions!!!

      Goor morning Carisa!! :) Amazon, here it is!

      Do you prep your pages with anything before you water color to avoid truly wetting the pages?
      Or does the water really not bleed through?

      And do you use acrylic paint on some pages? I can’t imagine that bleeding through – but you have to have some patience with the drying process. Right?

    How inspiring that was…I think that starting a new Bible in a few months or so will be a wonderful adventure! Imagine revisiting the same verse in a new mindset or for a different reason you journaled it before. The multi-meaning of The Word would be so enlightening to me.

      Yes!!! that is one of the reasons I love most about using the actual bible instead of an art journal. That parallel journaling is powerful!

    Where did you get the holder for your supplies? That is a really nice item to have. Thanks for the video. Love seeing all of your beautiful work!

    Thank you for this Shanna! I’m completely new to this and am one of those people that can’t draw, but I can use stickers, stamps and journaling so I really appreciated your comment on that. I am curious about your tabs that stick up above the pages. Where do you get the actual tabs? And are most of them stuck on with washi tape? The one with the brad I’m assuming you made by adding the brad to the tab and then folding it over the page?

    Thanks again! It is an exciting journey to dig into God’s word.

  7. Jocelyn 7 years ago

    Awesome! Thanks so much. I had no idea those even existed. Then you stick the tab on with a little washi tape? How would you put the tab on a paper clip? Would it be easy to do?

    This was so inspiring! I am a new follower on IG, and therefore new to you site so I may have missed this. What is your Bible covered with? Thanks!

      Hiya Christi!!! xoxo WELCOME!!! I covered them with a sticky back fabric and paper form Amy Tangerine, they don’t have them in their current line though :/

      • Betty 7 years ago

        Hi there! Thank you so much for your video!! Loved it!
        I was also curious about your bible cover process and was glad to see there were already some comments on here about it. I see that you used a sticky back fabric that is no longer available. I found this product online by coats & Clark called “phoomph for fabric!” Which can turn any fabric into sticky back fabric. I’d be curious to know if anyone one else in the illustrated faith community has tried this and if so how the results were. Let me know!
        Here is a link to the product:
        Coats Thread & Zippers Phoomph for Fabric, 9 by 12-Inch, Soft, White

        And a video demo using it. Looks pretty simple:
        Guessing it works w paper as well.

    Beautiful Bible..did you cover the bible, and with what paper..
    I also love your supply kit.. Perfect for carrying every where, I always go crazy in Sunday morning going to church, I need a notebook and pens..
    Thank you so much for sharing..❤️

      Hi there Annie :) I covered them with a sticky back fabric and paper form Amy Tangerine, they don’t have them in their current line though :/

    I can’t wait to get started journaling, I am curious to know how you recovered your bible? It’s super cute, and I would love some of your thoughts and ideas towards that!!

      Hi there! I used a sticky back paper and fabric from Amy Tangerine, they don’t have them in their current line though :(

  11. Leslie 7 years ago

    Thank you so much for sharing! I am just getting started with this! My question is about the cover. Do you have fabric or paper on the cover of your Bible?

    • Author
      Illustrated Faith 7 years ago

      Both :) the Grey people is from Amy Tangerine as well as the black and white fabric :) They don’t have any in their current line but you can sometimes find them on etsy etc :)

  12. Ryann 7 years ago

    I love this tour. :) I did the same kind of thing that other night with my husband’s aunt. She wanted to see all of the pages that I have done. It was really fun to show her and describe to her why I did what I did on each page. It would be great if we could see more videos of people doing this. It gives great inspiration!!

  13. Elda 7 years ago

    Thank you for sharing love looking at all the pages. Did you have a video on how you added the cover to the outside its beautiful? I have always wanted to scrapbook but never found the time this is a great way to get creative and soak up GOD amazing powerful word. Can’t wait to start.

      I don’t but for my next bible I will FOR SURE!!!

      • Janet 7 years ago

        Love your video and beautiful work. So, for your next Bible…will it be just like the one you are working on now or a different kind?

  14. Teresa 7 years ago

    Thank you for taking the time to do this. I especially liked your comment about maybe I’m not able to draw a lion on the page but perhaps God game me a different talent. I am so looking forward to growing in my faith through illustrated faith. I’m inspired by this group.

  15. Jill 7 years ago

    I love the gem stamps and could see using them on many different projects, not just my bible. Who makes them so I can hunt them down for my stash?!

  16. Nola 7 years ago

    Love your work, so glad I found your blog and the FB group, such a blessing. Do you tab every page you journal on?

  17. debi 7 years ago

    What a wonderful video! Thank you for sharing your beautiful Bible with us, and for the example and inspiration you give to those of us who are new to this. I am so thankful to have found you!

  18. Leah Burgett 7 years ago

    Love your video!! Thanks for sharing!

  19. katie 7 years ago

    for the pages that you are finished with that are still a little sticky, rubbing beeswax over them helps keep them from sticking :]]

  20. I always thought it was larger bible! But it doesn’t seem to be much bigger than your hands! {Unless of course you have huge hands! LOL!} But seriously, it’s refreshing to know that people are working in smaller spaces than I thought!

  21. Laura Johnson 7 years ago

    Thank you for sharing your pages! Very inspiring! So good to see how our journal pages can go from simple to more elaborate. So appreciate all your videos. God bless!

  22. Nicolette Choi 7 years ago

    Thank you for sharing this! I love it!!

  23. Cody Doll 7 years ago

    I really wish I could watch your videos at home but vimeo and my internet don’t get along. I can watch about half way before the WHOLE things has to reload which take another hour only to do it again. Guess I will wait til I can visit the library.

  24. ToriBissell 7 years ago

    Yeah! This is so much fun! How awesome to see all the things God is teaching you throughout the last year. I am inspired!

  25. Patti Hartman 7 years ago

    I LOVE your video, thank you for sharing! I’ve been “sitting” on a new journaling bible for months, practicing on my current, older bible, because I can’t get the Nerve up to start my work in my new one. After you video I’m ready to jump in…thanks for the inspiration!! <3

  26. Amanda 7 years ago

    Oh gosh. Ive been watching others do their journaling Bibles for months! We just moved back from Peru & it was one of the first things I ordered! My husband and I both got ours today & I can’t wait to get started! Which bible (brand & version) do you have? It looks very similar! I was worried about bleeding through but I actually don’t hate it! Adds character! Can’t wait to get started! I just found your blog/Instagram and I am so blessed & inspired by you! Thank you for sharing!

      Amanda that is wonderful!!!! Welcome back! :) I use the ESV journaling bible, I love it! Yes the pages are thin but I am there with you.. it adds character!!!

      • Amanda 7 years ago

        Thank you! And that’s SO funny!!! That’s the exact one I got!! I just had to laugh with my husband because I was so worried about it & almost wanted to send it back. But now I love it even more seeing it in action! Can’t wait to get started!

  27. Frances 7 years ago

    Shanna you have inspired me so much through bible journaling! Where do you get those arrow paper clips from?

  28. April Knight 7 years ago

    Love this Shanna! Such a beautiful job. I love how you are resourcing others, looking forward to working with you. :)

      Hiya Pat :) I might need to do a video on that :) Or if you look up shaker pockets on pinterest they are very popular in project life :)

  30. Rebecca 7 years ago

    Finally had time to sit still and watch this – amazing! Thank you so much for taking the time to do this for us. And, it was really nice to hear your voice after all the photos! ha ha! God bless & thanks again :)

  31. Gabby 7 years ago

    Shanna, where did you get your notebook that you use in church? I like it, it’s very simple but still nice and it has lines which is always a plus.

  32. ashley 7 years ago

    Thank you for sharing your Bible, your heart and your ideas with us.
    I was wondering what brand your sticker labels are inside of your note taking case? ?

  33. April 7 years ago

    I love this! Thanks so much for sharing. I have the leather bound edition of this bible but having a hard cover for the art journalling is a good way to go!

    • Author

      April, I think I will fill many bibles in my life time, so I am sure if you are the same you will get a chance to play with some different colors :) thank you! xox

  34. Brianna 7 years ago

    What is that case you have for supplies and note taking? The previous link you had posted no longer works and I’m in love with it!

  35. Anna 7 years ago

    hi there! I’m wondering what that case is that you use to hold all your supplies? I’ve been looking fr something similar. Thanks!

  36. Spencer 7 years ago

    Please share how you did your bible cover!

  37. Payge 6 years ago
