Everlasting Hope by Karla Dornacher

I pre-ordered a copy of Everlasting Hope by Karla Dornacher because I love her inspired art and I knew she would create a great Bible journaling resource.  It arrived yesterday.  Just looking through the pictures, stickers, and images made me want to play in my Bible.  So many fun ideas.

Here’s some pictures from the book and below I’ll share the page I did this morning.

There’s the cover…

Every time I open my Inspire Bible, I turn to a page that has been colored on one side with oranges and greens and on the other side with pinks, purples, and bright yellows.  It’s a small thing, but I keep thinking that I need to redo the right side of the page with colors that match…

Karla’s book gave me just what I needed for a redo!  I copied one of the illustrations onto cardstock and colored it with Distress inks and markers.  I cut it with a paper trimmer and glued it to the page.

I’ve been asking for a way to fix this page and found an answer!

Whenever you aren’t happy with how a Bible page turns out, just keep working on it until it makes you happy.  There are many ways to fix a mistake.

The book is not a comprehensive introduction to Bible journaling, but with so many ideas and illustrations it will give you plenty of inspiration to spend time in your Bible!

There are two other books by the same publisher with a similar format.  One features the beautiful art of Krista Harnrick and the other has illustrations by Anita Haines.  So fun!
