Thanks for joining me on the Joy Clair Blog today as I work through one of my latest Bible Journaling pages using the Dwelling Place Stamp Set. This set is just perfect for illustrating your Bible! Such cute images and great truth! One of my passions is to share Bible Journaling with others and I lead workshops in my local area. So many are just unsure of where to start and can get discouraged by the beautiful artwork they may see others do in Journaling Bibles. My encouragement to you today is that it does not matter what the page looks like! Complicated or simple, text or artwork, crayons or watercolors – it is about worshiping the Lord. It is easy to let supplies and comparison distract our hearts from what truly matters – your time spent with the Lord. This page is an example of how to use Joy Clair stamps on a fairly simple page to illustrate the Scripture simply and clearly. Not all pages have to be complicated and with these adorable stamps – Joy Clair takes the hard work out of it so you can spend more time in the Word.
I started by selecting the verse and what stamps I wanted to use. I choose the popular verse from Joshua – “As for my and my house, we will serve the Lord.” This is a favorite verse of mine, but also is a text stamp in this set!
I used the verse and house stamp on the bottom of the page near the verse using an acrylic block and a VersaFine black ink pad. I also underlined the verse using a Sharpie Non Bleed through pen. I used watercolors to color in the cute house! I also made sure to date stamp my page for future reference as I do all of my pages.
I decided I wanted to use the cute Window stamp as a border on top of the page. I also used a flowered cardstock flag to make a tab for the page and stamped the word Home on it from the stamp set. Under the tab I stamped the Gather Together stamp. I wrote out a prayer in the margins and used an enamel heart to finish off the page.
Thank you for joining me today on the blog and I can't wait to see how you all use this cute stamp set!
