As an adult, I have enjoyed a little downtime with coloring. I wasn't a very great at it as a kid, I actually thought it was kinda boring. Now I enjoy it if I can do a piece in less than 20 minutes and it has a purpose. - can I make a card out of it or a piece of wall art? I have found that a lot of women love coloring in books and journals so I recently introduce Coloring bible verse to my women's group at church. This type of coloring is very relaxing, I think about the verse and color. I pulled 52 free printable off the internet from an array of sources and will post one on Mondays on the groups' FB page - fun! I started this week and then made a journal to keep these pieces in. Maybe someday I will give it as a gift. I thought I would share the page and the journal with you all- you can save and print and maybe make a journal too!
Here is the journal and the process:
front of the journal
I just used a pretty piece if 12x12 that was in my stash. the journal is 8.5x5.5- standard sheet cut in half. I used a 65# weight paper, I wanted it to be a nice paper to add more coloring or inking.
I used a stack cutter to cut the paper - all 52 sheets at once!
I am fortunate to have a cinch machine - it made binding this a snap!
To hold the covers on to the chipboard, Best Glue Ever makes it seamless.
a DT card I made a while ago that did not make it into the mail, I cut it up for the cover.
The first page colored and glued in. Tonight I will add my thoughts.
and if you would like to try coloring a verse, you can right click and save then print:
I love this verse especially this time of the year!
