Bible Journaling Collage Style
Collage (from the French word coller which means “to glue”) refers to the layering of various materials onto a flat surface. Think “scrapbook” - or that elementary school art assignment to create a collage … involving a glue stick, scissors, and stacks of magazines!
In Bible journaling, collage materials include magazine or bulletin cut-outs, vellum, paper doilies, notecards, photographs, stickers, tags, paper napkins, and more. Acrylic paint, watercolors, gelatos, and other art supplies are often part of the process. After reading and reflecting on a portion of God’s Word, the collage Bible journaler might respond with color and “found materials” that express personal emotion and meaning, connecting God’s faithfulness with their own life story.
