Today’s step by step bible journaling post looks impressive in the end, but it’s not so complicated once you break it down! I’m using lyrics from Ellie Holcomb’s song He Will at the beginning of Isaiah 61. I used a pencil, markers, twistable crayons, and watercolor, but you could totally use whatever materials you already have!
Interested in what materials I have in my Bible journaling box? Check out the full post here!
Start by drawing a very simplified anatomical heart at the top of the page. If the thought of drawing it from scratch scares you, just pull up a clipart picture on your phone, lay the Bible page on top of the screen, and trace it!
Here’s a closer view of the heart.
Add a few veins on the heart and a ribbon banner that wraps around the heart. An easy modification is to have one, simple banner below the heart instead of wrapping it around. Again, there are tons of clipart examples of ribbon banners that you can trace.
Add a few flowers and leaves coming out from behind the heart. Search for “bullet journal flowers” on Pinterest for tons of examples!
Add the first of the lyrics, “He’ll bind up the brokenhearted,” on the ribbon banner.
Write the rest of the lyrics below your illustration.

Color the top illustration with color pencils or twistable crayons, then add darker accent details with marker.
I decided to trace my pencil calligraphy in marker before painting a watercolor background, but I would recommend switching those two steps. The watercolor smeared the marker a bit, so paint the watercolor first!
And that’s it! Be sure to Pin this tutorial so you can find it later!
