Bible Journaling Psalm 136 His love endures forever

Psalm 136:1
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good,
for His steadfast love endures forever. 

I made a little time to doodle some art in my Bible this morning. It is such a good stress reliever... creating and meditating on His Word.

I began by wetting the entire page with a large round brush and then tapped in watercolor paints. This is know as the wet-on-wet technique. If you stick to either cool (blue/purple) or warm (red/orange) colors, they won't get too muddy or turn brown. 

Here I used purple, blue, and green. 

After this picture, I added yellow in that blank spot towards the center. Also, the orange dots are the flowers from the other side showing through. They are only showing through because the page is so wet. Once dry, you can't see them.

Then, I drew large daisies and painted them with acrylic paint. I'll put a supply list below, but the acrylics I'm currently loving are from Martha Stewart.

I let this dry for a few hours and then touched up a few areas with pen and added lettering.

I had first made the center of the flowers "wild salmon" but then added some "chamomile" to the brush and went back over them to brighten them up a bit.

It was a fun, quick page and great reading this Psalm where David recalls all of the great things God had done for Israel. He is so good to us and His love endures forever!

Supply list... my philosophy is to use what you have, but if you're in the market for some new supplies, here are some recommendations:

Some of my favorite watercolors:

I also used the yellow from this set (this price is crazy but yes, they are professional watercolors. I got my set probably 10 years ago on clearance at Michael's crafts for maybe $30):

Here are the pens I recommend. They come in a variety of tip sizes. I used the "B" for this page. Here is a large set. There is also a 4 pack:

Not used here, but these are the best white pens ever:

And as stated above, I used Martha Stewart acrylic paints for the flowers. They can be found at many craft stores and my other favorite brand, Folk Art, can be found at Walmart.

Thanks for joining me on another fun page!

Keep doodling,
