I was given a chance to read a pre-release copy of The Art of Words by Valerie Wieners. (It releases August 1st, 2017) It is a beautiful full-color 120 page book. Subtitled “Learn the Craft of Creative Lettering” this book will help you learn lettering or improve your skill. Passio/Charisma House provided this book free for review.

I just finished reading Shana Noel’s new book 10 Ways to Fall in Love With Your Bible and Stay in Love. Dayspring provided this book free for review.

I recently finished reading Illuminated Journaling by Jann Gray. I found this book inspirational and wish I had read it much earlier in my Bible art journaling journey. One of Jann’s favorite phrases is “It’s more about your heart then the art” and that philosophy is very evident in this book. She starts Illuminated Journaling with “the elephant in the room.” Is it okay to draw in your Bible? While her answer (and mine) is yes, not everyone’s will be. Bible art journaling is a very personal undertaking and no two people will approach it exactly the same way. Where...Read More
Today I’m showing various art mediums in the large print Inspire Bible. This is the larger version of the Inspire Bible with all the same drawings (just larger versions) and a larger font.
