WOYWW: Just do it!


After staring at the blank margins of my journaling bible, I finally took the plunge and did my first illustration! I think the thought of having a blank bible on my desk again for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday pushed me to, as the popular ad line says, "Just do it!"  Since the pages are so thin, I decided to start with using just a Pigma Micron pen and some colored pencils.  


As you can see, I did some major pencil sharpening, and I'm not done yet. I think I need to buy some new sharpeners. 


That's it for this Wednesday's desk!  What's on yours?

Journalling is the best fun ever! Go to an art shop and buy yourself a good quality sharpener that has a long blade.That way you get better oints.I love my 2 new sharpeners, and well worth the extra you pay.I am journalling too- a course in drawing I am doing informally with my auntie.

A visit to WOYWW would not be the same without a visit to you and your desk.
Thank you for showing the Bible, now I fully understand what a journalling bible is. Beautifully illustrated as always. Lovely pencil work. Have you seen Nikki's pencil collection?

Wow! A new Bible! Have you filled the previous one?
Yeah, that is some pencil sharpening! How many colors red can a girl have!
Lovely verse.
Have a good week,
Hug,

Last week my friend said I should get a journalling Bible because she knows I hate making notes or 'defacing' books when we are discussing it. I am glad you have started - I think maybe working on the page makes you think about the words - lovely. By the way I never use a sharpener - as a trained artist I always use a knife because you get sharper points and have more control (unless you have difficulties) Jackie 21 x

Wow! I am so impressed with what you have done with your Bible journaling. I don't have the right kind of Bible, but want to do the journaling. May do something in a separate journal. Just can't bring myself to do it in my Bible. Don't know, still mulling the whole Bible art journal thing over. LOL Yours is great! #53

I'm loving seeing bible journaling around the world! I don't practise Christianity so won't do it myself, but I do think it's a lovely idea to express your faith in the book itself! I like your bible with the wide margins! Popping in as part of my blog commenting challenge 300 in 30 days! I found you via Julia's WOYWW.
