Hello Everyone! Welcome to week 12 of my Bible Art Journaling Challenge! This week I wanted to follow on from what I talked about last week. I don’t normally have my themes rely on each other too much so they can be enjoyed on their own. This time, it would at least be helpful if you were aware of what I talked about last week, so you can get more out of this week’s challenge. The creative techniques, however, are different.
In my video today, I am giving a tutorial on Click to continue . . .

Some have asked me about using felt tipped pens (Micron, Faber Castell Pitt, Sharpie, etc) over gesso. This combo can be a big problem for people where their lovely pens suddenly dry up having been clogged by the gesso! White gesso tends to clog while clear gesso is so gritty of surface it tends to damage the pen tips. Even a few ball-point pens can get clogged up. I have lost two wonderful pens. How many have you lost? I still have them sitting on my art desk hoping someday, I’ll hear a secret of how to fix them. Share if you know please!
Anyway… I’ve recently been Click to continue . . .

Welcome to week 10 of the 2015 Bible Art Journaling Challenge!
This week I wanted to do a bit of basic hand lettering in my Bible and also demonstrate that you really don’t need lots of skills or experience to give it a try. Additionally, this Note-Taker’s Bible I create in, has a page margin that is 1.5 inch (3.5 cm) in width. This is plenty wide but I think many have believed, you simply cannot do hand lettering in this particular Bible, because the space may limit fitting words in to the margin width available. I hope I have proved here that with a little planning, you can fit your words in that space. I hope you’ll enjoy today!
Before you dive in to this weeks challenge, I want to quickly remind you that if you ever want to find the archive of any of my previous challenges, you just need to remember two simple things and you can find your way to it easily! Firstly, remember my name. Rebekah Ruth Jones. I spell Rebekah like it is spelled in the Bible. Just go to your internet browser and type in my name (plus .com) using my middle initial… www.RebekahRJones.com Secondly, just have at look at the top navigation on my site and you’ll find the word “Challenge” right there. Click on that and you’ll find everything you need to know about the challenge including a full archive and recommended Bibles and starter supplies.
I want to mention one more thing. I have improved the Search Blog By Category functionality in the right sidebar of my website so you can now more easily find previous tutorials, by type of creative process, as well as other categories of interest. I hope you’ll find this helpful in finding your way around my website.
Without further delay… enjoy my video below and then Click to continue . . .

Welcome to another week of the Bible Art Journaling Challenge!
I want to welcome all the readers of heART Journal Magazine who will be seeing this challenge in the March edition magazine! Thank you for joining me! I hope you’ll consider becoming a participant of the challenge!
For those not visiting from the heART Journal Magazine… In the March edition, you’ll be able to see this challenge plus an exclusive interview of myself with the owner Carla Devine AND a really fun and currently exclusive tutorial video by myself. I think you’ll love it! I have been looking forward to sharing this tutorial video featured in the magazine, for many months and am excited to share it with you all! I will write a blog post when the magazine is published telling you how to have a look for yourself. I bring out a new challenge each week on Tuesday’s. I’ve made an exception for the magazine feature, so this challenge is a few days early (rather than March 3rd), which gives you even longer to enjoy it! I’ll be back with the next challenge on March 10th as usual, but do check back in to hear about the magazine, if you’re not already coming from the magazine!
I had a lot of fun with this challenge. I chose to branch away from the regular appearance of my Note-Taker’s Bible for this week and use a historical page from a dis-used Bible from the early 1900’s. Many of you know I sometimes art journal on these old pages. I have been looking forward to sharing how you can art journal on any Bible page, regardless if you have a wide-margin to create on. The possibilities are endless!
