Fun Tie Dye Bible Journaling Tutorial

Deuteronomy 6:5  Love the LORD your God
with all your heart and with all your mind and with all your strength.

1 John 4:7 - Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

Today, I have a silly, whimsical Bible Journaling page for you in two different techniques.

I'm using lined notebook paper, two round objects, a pencil, Crayola markers, and some water.


A page was ripped from my note pad and a circle was traced around a clear bowl in pencil.

Next, a checker was used for tracing a circle in the center.

I sketched out my idea for the letter placement.

Once I felt it was balanced, I outlined the words to make bold, curvy letters.  Any unwanted pencil marks were erased.

Following the lines of my notebook paper, I created uniform bands of bright colors with Crayola markers.

A spritz of water blurs the stripes, giving a tie dye look.

Once my page is completely dry, I outline my lettering with black marker.

Joshua 23:11  So be very diligent to love the Lord your God

Color options are endless.

A second way to get the same effect is coloring first,

spritzing with water,

Psalm 37:4a  Delight yourself in the Lord...

and then lettering.

These circles can be used as single Bible Journaling "tip ins" or they could be cut out and layered to create a larger illustration.

"Love the Lord" can be used for so many Bible verses!  Which one is your favorite?
