I ordered the girls bibles from Amazon (who doesn't love amazon!) and bought some pins at Hobby Lobby. These were for Christmas, but I was so excited over buying the supplies I told my hubs that I couldn't wait for them to open them so I, I mean them could use them. I love getting new pencils, pens, arts supplies, I don't know why but I do. Its like new toys. So anyways, after she opened them and used them some and I started to see others that had posted them on Instagram I finally sit down last night and decided it was time to give it a try. I had ordered my bible last week from Amazon and it come in(so so excited!!)
I decided to take a verse from Proverbs to start with. Its not my best artwork but I was so so nervous about writing in my bible! You know other than highlighting and underlining I hadn't ever doodled or anything in my bible so I was really nervous about this.
I used a regular #2 pencil to sketch it out, water color pencils to color, then a felt tip black pen to cover over. I only used water on the green. I thought it turned out ok, but it could be so so much better. I really want to work on my lettering. The bottom of it is a mess, it was sloppy but again I was nervous, so I need to work on that part.
