Creative Lettering

Last month I enjoyed co-teaching a couple of Creative Lettering Bible Journaling Workshops with Jana Kennedy- Spicer of Sweet To The Soul. Jana demonstrated how to create a variety of different letters as well as decorative fills and doodles. I haven't quite mastered all the techniques, but I'm definitely enjoying adding creative lettering and doodling to my time in the Word! I like the idea of using different letter types for various words.


It's also especially FUN to combine the creative lettering with other techniques and products. In the example below, I added paint, stickers, hexis and a tab to the lettering and doodling that reiterates the message I wanted to emphasize in these scriptures.


Jana and I are teaming up again next month to bring the Creative Lettering Bible Journaling Workshops to Scrappin' Goodtime in Corsicana, Texas. Check out all the details below!
