I received the hardback ESV Journaling Bible for my birthday last week and I wanted to share what I have done with it so far.
First I added the tabs into the Bible. This took about two hours to complete, but I think it was well worth the time. It makes it so much easier to find the book that I am looking for.
Here is my first entry. I used sermon notes that I had taken the Sunday before.
Yesterday I decided to make a cover for it. I used a piece of painted canvas for the cover. This piece of canvas was originally a canvas promo bag that I was given and I had planned on using it as a tote but the gesso made it too stiff so I thought it would be a good use for the cover. I used Decoart Multi-Surface Satin Paint to paint the canvas.
Here is a close up of the detail on the cover. I think I may go back in with some Sharpies and add some words of affirmation and some doodles.
Here it is with the cover and the tabs. I really like how the tabs seem to match the colors of the cover.
Here is another entry that I finished using sermon notes for Mark 5: 24-34
This one is for John 13: 30
I hope you enjoy these. I will be sharing my pages here once a week.

I have taken a couple of weeks away from the computer. It started because I really just needed a couple of days to rest and relax but it has turned into 3 weeks so far. I have been very busy and working behind the scenes making a bunch of items to prepare for a Christmas Open Studio event that I am planning. I have been making a lot of my cold weather items that everyone is used to seeing from me at this time of the year.
I sort of create based on the seasons. I paint more in the spring and summer and during the fall and winter I work with fiber and fabric. I really love to be able to focus on different crafts at different times based on what I feel like doing. I have added a few pictures of some of the things that I am working on and I will be posting more and they are finished. You can also follow me on Instagram @ASouthernladysR to see more daily peeks into qhat I am working on.
