Typography Bible Journaling
Words, Words, and more WORDS. Typographyis the art and technique of arranging type to make written language legible, readable, and appealing when displayed. The arrangement of type involves selecting typefaces, point sizes, line lengths, line-spacing and letter-spacing, and adjusting the space between pairs of letters. The term typography is also applied to the style, arrangement, and appearance of the letters, numbers, and symbols created by the designer. In the margins of a Bible, color may be added to highlight a piece of the text as significant for the reader and artist. Words may include hand-lettered, with stickers, stamped, or traced.

I love connecting artistically with Bible verses. It's like doing aerobics and yoga at the same time: my mind is both excited and actively engaged with God's Word, but at the same time I'm at peace as I reflect, respond, and ultimately rest in the moment. It's rejuvenating!
Honestly, with my artistic background I try to keep my time with God completely carefree! (Which can be a struggle!) My goal is to have His Word linger in my mind after I've set down my pencil.

FEBRUARY FEATURED ARTIST JAMIE TRUWE
Hi there folks, so glad to join you all here today and share a little bit of my work with you. I started doodling with words about five years ago when my job at the time had me sitting in a homework room with kids after school. I need something to pass the time between questions from the kids. My art background goes back further than that with taking every art class possible in highschool and studying art in college. I love the freedom that Bible journaling gives and to be able to tie my art with His words makes it even better. I have my own creative business and also teach K-8 art part time at my kids school. I am mom to five creative, crazy and cute kids. My husband is a Lutheran Pastor and we have been married for 15 years. If love to see what you are creating and get to know you better. You can find me hanging out on social media under my business name, Pure Joy Creative.

DECEMBER FEATURED ARTIST KAREN HUNTER
Karen Hunter Numbers 6:
Jan 2, 2017 "This morning I reflected on Sunday's sermon and did some journaling in my Bible. The passage, the Aaronic Blessing in Numbers Chapter 6, had previously been journaled, but I used my watercolor pencils to bring some more colors to the page as I reflected on the words of the Lord's blessing.
The Lord blesses and keeps me, shines His face on me. He does this weekly in a special way as I sit in the pew for Sunday services, alongside my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ and hear and receive His very real presence in Word and Sacrament.
As we were leaving I was struck by the beauty of the window's reflection and the rays of sunlight highlighted by the smoke of the candles. As I was taking a few photos, my daughter ran in and stood in the midst of it all. The Lord's blessing upon her. His very real presence and peace.
He strengthens my faith as I spend time in the Word throughout the week. As I look through this Bible I see and remember how God has walked alongside me these last two years."
