Zephaniah 3:17 NKJV The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.
Zephaniah 3:14 CSB Sing for joy, Daughter Zion; shout loudly Israel! Be glad and celebrate with all your heart, Daughter Jerusalem!
If you are unfamiliar with Bible journaling or Bible illustrating, this is best explanation I've ever heard. Bible journaling is an act of worship. I offer my scribbles as a gift to my Father in heaven.
Next I used Distressed Oxide in blue on the upper left and soft green on the lower right, which is hard to see in the pre dawn lighting of my kitchen.
I've had this set of clear nesting bowls in my kitchen for about twenty years or so. Since I struggle with proportions, these work GREAT when I need slightly different sized circles.
The three circles get a couple coats of red acrylic paint. I'm not worried about these being perfect circles, but want to cover any pencil marks.
Using a small round brush, soft yellow dots are added to the center of the red circles on top of the green lines. I also mix yellow and green paint to create veins for each leaf.
Here's the next row of petals. Don't get too worried about your small curves being a specific size. All flowers are unique, just like us! ;-)
Do you get the idea? The outer petals begin and end at about the middle of the petals in the row ahead of them.
We are almost finished! Using a black 05 micron pen, I outlined the leaves and along their veins. A few small circles were drawn in the center of my rose. In hopes of creating a bit of a shadow, I drew black lines on the inside of each petal.
That's it! I pulled away the washi tape and underlined verse 14 and verse 17 using a red 005 micron pen.
I hope you enjoyed the step by step instructions of this Bible journaling page. Please let me know what you think!
