Recently, I received some beautiful art journals from Ellie Claire and Worthy Publishing. When they arrived in the mail, I was SO impressed by the beauty and the high quality of these products. They are definitely keepsakes that I will treasure. Let me tell you about each one of them:
Illuminate Your Story Journal
Learn to create your own beautiful illuminated letters with this how-to journal.
Use the almost-lost art of illuminating letters to enhance your writing, Bible journaling, or sermon note-taking. Rich illustrated manuscripts in the Museum of the Bible’s collection inspired these gorgeous letters. Easy to follow instructions, practice pages, and encouragements guide you through the creation of amazing start letters, flourishes, and more.
I have always wondered how people create such beautiful lettering and now I have this journal to teach me in a simple, step-by- step manner. I need to buy some supplies, but I’m very excited to get started.
I love that this journal has a pen holder on the outside and a pocket inside to tuck my treasures. There are also plenty of blank, two-page spreads for journaling, in addition to the practice pages. Each one includes a Bible verse as well.
Faith & Lettering Journal
New from professional letterer Krystal Whitten! With guides, instructions, and tutorials, this is a fun and inspiring way to create beauty with words. It is the perfect place for journalers to practice Bible journaling, lettering quotes and verses, or decorating a page with original thoughts and plans. Exploring your God-given creativity has never been so rewarding.
This book includes more of a calligraphy-style instruction, plus it shows you how to do your own Bible journaling in the sidebar of your Bible. There is plenty of space for practicing as well as lines pages for journaling. This book also comes complete with a pen holder on the outside, making it a handy book to take with you.
This is an absolutely beautiful book that anyone would be thrilled to add to their collection. Again, I can’t wait to buy some special pens and get started! I love Bible journaling but it has always really intimidated me and I think this book will help!
This book retails for $15.99 and would make a lovely gift!
The Illustrated Word
AN ILLUMINATED BIBLE COLORING JOURNAL
Create your own masterpiece with this journal that has forty glorious illustrations from ancient manuscripts that have been recreated as line drawings. Just as medieval monks brought Scripture to life through intricate inked illustrations in handwritten manuscripts hundreds of years ago, you can now create your own stunning keepsake that will be treasured for years to come.
Of the three journals, this one is probably most up my alley because it’s a combination of an adult coloring book and a journal. And, it’s particularly appealing to me because my older eyes are starting to have trouble seeing the tiny sections in most adult coloring books. This one, though, was no problem for me to see and I really enjoyed coloring a page in it the other day.
Up in the corners of the alternating journal pages, there is often a picture of an original painting that corresponds to the image to color, giving you ideas. But, of course, you always have your own creative license. I do enjoy getting inspiration on color combinations, etc.
Unlike the other two books, this one doesn’t have a pen holder on the outside, but it is a beautiful bound journal that will definitely serve as a lovely keepsake for someone. This one also retails for $15.99 and is well worth the pricetag.
Each one of these journals will be a “gift that keeps on giving” to your friend or loved one. I will definitely be purchasing more Ellie Claire products in the future.
