Tips for Using a Journaling Bible:
You have to test the page’s thickness first when using a journaling Bible.
Especially with ink and markers. Choose a spot to test that won’t be obvious to determine bleed through.
Some pages are thinner than others and markers might bled through, so when deciding to purchase a journaling Bible you want to choose on that has thicker pages. Be aware that thicker pages will increase the thickness of the entire Bible. So if you want a journaling Bible that fits into your purse, you will have to figure that in.
Coloring on the Edge
Stroke one way to avoid ripping the edges.
Low on Colors? No Problem
Do you only have a few colored pencils? By combining colors (with pencils) you expands your color palette.
The best way to do this is to lightly fill in both colors at first to achieve the exact color you want.
Pressing too hard can rip pages in your journaling Bible, especially if they are thinner.
Build up color instead of pressing hard.
The color will remain just as vibrant while persevering the quality of your journaling Bible.
Sometimes I forget what certain styles look like or I run low on ideas for fonts. By visiting different font websites online you can generate TONS of ideas about what script to you.
I like DaFont.com to copy font styles. You can even test your own words and grab a screenshot and print it out!
