Hi there friends! I am excited to be on the Bella Blvd blog today sharing a bit about the Illustrated Faith starter kit! To be honest this was the first big project we worked on as a team with Bella Blvd, DaySpring and Illustrated Faith and it is so AMAZING to see what a team can do working together, everyone sharing their ideas, putting in their input and making sure we come out with one amazing product at the end! We wanted to give you guys a kit that would work for those just getting started or those that have already fallen head over heels in love with bible journaling, and I know that is just what we ended up with..... all in this ADORABLE box!!!
Before I share a page I create using the kit I wanted to share with you a bit behind what is included in the kit.
I know we are aren't supposed to play favorites but the devotional booklet in this kit might be my favorite of all time. I love that it really walks you through ways to illustrate your faith, through prayer, song, scripture etc! Lots of ideas to get you started and keep you going! Also, can I just mention how CUTE the little doodles inside are? I love every bit!!!
We wanted to make sure to include some of my favorite and most used tools for bible journaling. My favorite journaling pen perfect for print making, and of course.... journaling, a bible paint mat and of course paint and paint cards! Seriously with these tools alone you can journal for days and worship in color!
STICKERS!!!! Apparently I am still a third grade little girl because #stickersaremylovelanguage !!! I just love how easy they are to use and add that little pop of color on any project! The stickers included in this kit are just perfect for bible journaling with a huge variety from wordfetti stickers, label stickers and alpha sticker to my favorite tabs and more!
Paper bits and washi tape and the icing on the cake! Can we talk for a moment about these adorable little washi tape dispensers? SO.STINKIN.CUTE and I Love the new colorways on our favorite designs! The paper bits are perfect when you need a little inspiration or design direction, and we have included a bible verse on the back of each one to lead you in the word for a great jumping off point!
Last but not least we wanted to make sure to include some idea starters for us visual learners having something right there in your kit with ideas and directions on how to use all these wonderful tools in this wonderful kit!!
I honestly love this kit to pieces and am so excited to see it in your hands with HUGE smiles on your faces!!!! I personally have loved breaking it open and using it my daily bible journaling! I wanted to share one of my latest entries using the kits to show you just how easy and FUN this can be!
One of the things that I think hold people back from enjoying bible journaling is overthinking it. Yes we should ENJOY worship, YES it's ok to have FUN while you read the bible, YES it's ok to paint in your bible :) For my entry today I pulled out that sweet little speech bible right away and ALWAYS love a good speech bubble ( are we together on that one?) and right when I saw it 1 Samuel 3 came to mind! To start off I grabbed my bible mat and added a little paint to the background, I find that doing this right when you start can really help get the creativity going and take away that "white page" syndrome of not wanting to "ruin" the page. From there I put the speech bible right on top with a heart (because we can always use a heart!!) and some of the wordfetti stickers that I pulled from reading the verse. The big idea that I was pulling out of the words is "Speak, I will listen" so I wanted to make sure that was big on the page when I turn to this verse! This is where those awesome alphabet stickers come to use! Once I finished that I wrap it up with some journaling, date (one of the most important bits in my opinion!) and a tab at the top! Once I looked ver the page I realized that my eye kept drifting back to the white space on the speech bubble and while I love some white space I decided it needed a little something extra so I torn off a single amen from the washi tape and it was the perfect touch! Seriously #alltheamens, right!
One of the biggest things I hear about bible journaling is "I wish I could find time for that" - well friends with the starter kit there are seriously no excuses, all your supplies are in one place and we all have 15 mins a day to spend some time in the word!!
I hope you have the most fantastic day!
