Spending some time in the Enduring Word Bible and trying out different resources and supplies.
Always great to have a page ready to go— and ready for journaling- making notes—-
Trying out colored pencils, napkins and Gesso, and some watercolor.
We are very excited about the new Enduring Word Bible coming out the first week of June from Concordia Publishing House. It is an ESV version Bible and there are 350 margins for coloring as well as the title page for each book of the Bible. That leaves many pages for your own additions, notes, journaling and images.
Here is a bit about the illustrators: (first published by Concordia Publishing House on Goodreads)
