So, you've got your Blitsy + Illustrated Faith Exclusive Bible Journaling Kit, but aren't sure where to get started? Here are some tips and tricks to help you on your journey to connect with your Bible through creativity.

Getting Creative in Your Bible

Now that you have all of the supplies you need for Bible journaling, it's time to get started! Shanna Noel, creator of Illustrated Faith, has put together 7 steps as a guide to getting started. Follow her steps to start connecting with your bible in a new and creative way. Once you have landed on a devotion or verse that speaks to you, it's time to bring it alive in your bible using all of your shiny new Bible journaling supplies.

If you feel a little lost, check out the tips and tricks below on how to use the supplies in your bundle. It's important to create your own style and do what works for you. The point of Bible journaling is to document what God has spoken to you in your own way so you'll be able to reflect and remember. Have fun and get creative!

The acrylic paints in your bundle go a long way. They also blend beautifully to create light shades of color to incorporate into your pages. Just add paint to one of the paint cards and blend together with a paint brush or your finger. Then, use another paint card to scrape up the paint and add it to your page. There are numerous Illustrated Faith products that allow you to expand your creativity. You can add stickers, die cuts, and other fun embellishments from Illustrated Faith to customize your pages!

Don't be afraid to use your finger as a blending tool. Add paint right to your bible and use your finger to created blended swirl effects. You can also rip off small pieces of the cris cross washi tape to add cool detail to your page. Use the pen to accent your designs and to anchor your die cuts by tracing around them.

Since the washi tape is black and white, it can be colored with the paints that come in the bundle! Add washi tape to one of the paint cards. Place paint on the edge of another paint card and scrape it over the tape to add color. When the tape is dry, peel it off the card and add it to your Bible.

You can also add color to the Bible Book Tabs! Use the same method as the washi tape to customize your Bible tabs and add splashes of color throughout your Bible.
