I am so excited about these three beautiful journals from Ellie Claire and Worthy publishing. They are from the Museum of the Bible and I had the privilege of working with The Green Collection handling PR for several traveling exhibitions of artifacts before the Museum of the Bible was built. I saw, up close and personal, the original ancient texts that inspired these journals.
Journaling, scripture study, contemplation, and creative expression can help you craft your remarkable life as you grow closer to the spirit and put yourself in a place of listening and receptivity.
These journals carry on the tradition using of lettering and imagery to illuminate the text by teaching us how to do it. All of the journals are exquisite with such features as heavy card stock, embossed covers, and vibrant colors.
The Illuminate Your Story Journal is less of a journal and more of an illuminated lettering sketchbook. It shares the history of illuminated lettering and then includes step by step instructions for each letter of the alphabet. In between each lettering instruction and practice pages are two-pages of journal space and an inspirational quote. A handy keepsake pocket is on the back cover. It includes a bookmark and a pen holder. This would be a great gift for the person who likes to doodle!
The second journal is the Illustrated Word, An Illuminated Bible Coloring Journal has a beautifully embossed cover and combines journaling with coloring for an immersive experience. Throughout the book are coloring pages of images found in various texts including the Bible and The Book of Common Prayer, an image of the original art, and plenty of journaling space. Part art history, part art class, part devotional this journal is a sensory creative delight. This journal would delight preteen and teen girls and women of all ages.
The third journal, Faith & Lettering Journaling, is also a beautifully embossed work of art. It teaches the art of creating fun lettered sayings with instructions and space to practice. It also teaches how to create several types of fonts. The journal includes different blank page formats to use however you want to capture inspiration including graph pages, lined note pages, dotted pages, and notes pages with a wide margin for art and lettering. If you have ever wanted to learn how to make those cute chalkboard sayings, this journal is perfect for you!
