My friend Rhonda gave me a Book of Kells coloring book for Christmas, a few weeks ago I saw a post on Pinterest about writing out scripture and also scrapbooking in your Bible.
I'm inspired to copy out and decorate my own Bible. I'll be using the ESV (English Standard Version).
Last night I stopped by Barnes and Noble and picked up a pack of Muleskins journals (I LOVE the feel of their paper and they have narrow margines which I also love.) I plan to use a variety of writing instruments including my new Sharpie pens, Staedtler triplus fineliners, Microns and Prismacolor pencils.
I started this post a couple months ago now. I've progressed very slowly so far. I am working my way through the Psalms. Writing it out forces me to slow down and meditate on the words. I've begun sketching out the cover page. I'm intimidated to progress any farther though. Sometimes a perfectionist just needs to put pen to paper and see what happens.
