Bible Journaling with Joy Clair Deer Friends Stamp Set

Hello Everyone!  Thanks for stopping in and checking out my September challenge project for Joy Clair Stamps!  Click here to enjoy the others projects done by the design team!

I immediately fell in love with the stamp set Deer Friends!  The flowers and plants are so pretty – but those woodland animals are adorable!


I started off by stamping the animals and the tree stumps onto white cardstock and colored them in with Neocolor II watercolor crayons.  I fussy cut them out and set them aside to use on the page.



I chose Proverbs 3 to use these stamps with – a chapter all about wisdom, kindness, gentleness and walking with the Lord in His wisdom.  I chose 9 different green shades of Neocolors to color the margin of the page.  I used a water brush to fill the page with these colors.



I used the three little stamps in the set – an acorn, flower and leaf – to do a border at the bottom of the page.


I used the Wise stamp for a tab at the top of the page with some washi tape and stickers.  I added some alpha stickers for the word BE and used the stamps gentle, wise and kind to the side.



I glued on the animals with the tree stumps and added a date stamp.  After reading and worshiping through the passage I typed out a prayer on clear sticker paper and added it to the middle of the page.



This set was so fun to use and I can think of so many other projects to use them!

  1. Hi Andie:
    I need to bug you (pick your brain a bit). I’m LOVING this crayon background that I saw on the Joy Clair blog, and had to stop by and take a look. I was hoping you had a tutorial on how you did it. Would you mind telling me how you did this? Or…if you saw a tutorial when you learned it, I’d love to see it done. I absolutely love this background idea, and it works really well for Bible journalling. It would be such a blessing to learn this new technique, and I’d greatly appreciate your help.

    By the way, I run a Christian challenge blog if you’re ever interested in playing along. I’d love seeing your amazing art linked up with us. It’s always Anything Goes/Family Friendly and we have awesome sponsors. I’d love to have you play along. – Word Art Wednesday

    Have a blessed day,
    Karen Letchworth
