This is the third in a short series of posts in which I am sharing some “artful devotions” from this summer: hand-lettered verses.  You can find the first post HERE and the second post HERE.

Later in the summer, I veered off of the Letter the Gospel series of verses, and I lettered some verses that I’d been studying on my own in response to other things in which I was involved or that I was experiencing.

This is the second in a short series of posts in which I am sharing some “artful devotions” from this summer: hand-lettered verses.  You can find the first post HERE.

I found that hand-lettering verses this summer really made me meditate on the exact and specific words used.  As I planned the way the words would look and fit on my page, I had to decide their importance and weight– and how that would impact how a viewer saw the verse.  I think the emphasis that I’ve placed on some of the words also says a bit about how God was working in my heart and what He was teaching me as I studied.

I am hoping that the time I spent meditating on these Scriptures will help to implant them firmly in my heart and mind–similar to the way God’s attributes impacted me and I am remembering them better for having made illustrations in my Bible last summer.

Last year over the summer, I did some illustrations in my Bible as I studied God’s attributes and names.  It was a really satisfying way to add some artistic creativity into my devotional time.  More than that, the attributes and names that I illustrated have really remained in my heart and mind because of the time that I spent meditating upon them as I worked.

This summer, I decided to do more “artful devotions,” and in the late spring, I came across Krystal Whitten’s “Letter the Gospel” challenge.  I bought myself a blank sketchbook and worked on a verses throughout the summer.

I’d like to share some of what I made here on the blog.  I studied each verse for a bit before I started working on the lettering.  During my studying, usually I would have an idea of how I wanted to present the verse on my page, and I penciled in lines with a ruler and added my lettering in pencil, too.  I used my three thicknesses of black Becky Higgins Project Life pens to ink the words.  (I’d really like to try a brush pen, but I haven’t purchased one yet!)
