Bible Journaling – Fun With Cursive Handwriting

Since I’ve been practicing cursive hand writing, I thought I’d share a few things in this little tutorial that I’ve picked up over the past few weeks.

Subscribers, if you can’t see the video, please click through to the blog.

I also wanted to point out that the best pen for lettering is the Micron-01, but just so you know–when using the o1, you need to have a light hand. I tend to press hard and I’ve broken several tips before I learned it wasn’t the pen’s fault. It was mine. Also I use the Micron size 05 for outlining everything else.

Here are a couple of the designs I’ve been working on this week.

For those who are wondering, this is a KJV Journaling Bible. You can find them at Amazon.

    Thanks for the video! The music makes it a lot harder to hear and focus on you – just some feedback for next demonstration video!! So glad you got me into bible journaling – keep the posts coming! Thanks so much!

    • I FORGOT to mention that the reason it’s hard to hear is that I had two fans blowing on me. Our air conditioner broke and I forgot to turn them off. I was so disappointed when I played it back and realized.

    Thank you so much for the dotted paper. I think this will help me. My problem is I am so impatient and want to hurry along instead of practicing.

    So happy to have found you on Pinterest, just getting ready to start bible journaling with my sisters and daughter. Trying to gather as much info as I can, I’m left handed with not so great handwriting and saw on your video that you are left handed to. Thank you for your inspiration and God bless you!

    I found you through pinterest and besides your cute illustration, the thing that drew me here is that you are the first Bible journaler I have come across to use the KJV version of the Bible! I love the cute and compact ESV journaling Bibles but I can not dismiss how that translation and many others don’t line up with the hebrew/greek text and are even missing key words and verses. I am very excited to find your blog and will follow on Instagram too.
