I received the following Ellie Claire’s Art Journals from Worthy Publishing for review. All opinions are my own.
I think the Ellie Claire Art Journals would make great gifts for the art lovers on your list this Christmas. They are made of high quality paper and binding with exquisite attention to detail, including pen loops on the binder and elastic band closures.
New from professional letterer Krystal Whitten! With guides, instructions, and tutorials, this is a fun and inspiring way to create beauty with words. It is the perfect place for journalers to practice Bible journaling, lettering quotes and verses, or decorating a page with original thoughts and plans. Exploring your God-given creativity has never been so rewarding.
This book encompasses so much; from pages that feature scripture to others that encourage hand-lettering verses through tracing, writing, and practicing.
“We are God’s masterpiece.” Ephesians 2:10
You’ll find tips, blank pages, and even inspiration scattered throughout this book. I loved the Step-by-step instructions for decorative flourishes, ribbons, and embellishments. I also loved all the scripture prompts throughout the book. This journal provided lots of space to write, practice, doodle, and pursue a deeper faith by expressing your creativity.
Use this almost-lost art of illuminating letters to enhance your writing, Bible journaling, or sermon note-taking. Rich illustrated manuscripts in the Museum of the Bible’s collection inspired these gorgeous letters. Easy to follow instructions, practice pages, and encouragements guide you through the creation of amazing start letters, flourishes, and more.
I enjoyed reading about the history of illuminated letters. It was interesting to learn how some of these styles and manuscripts changed throughout history.
I loved how the journal taught you different ways to illustrate and embellish the alphabet . I think that this journal is a great how-to guide to create gorgeous images for not only your devotional time, but also planners, journals, and personal art.
“Begin. Start right where you are. Consider your possibilities and find inspiration.. to add more meaning and zest to your life” Alexandra Stoddard
Create your own masterpiece with this journal that has forty glorious illustrations from ancient manuscripts that have been recreated as line drawings. Just as medieval monks brought Scripture to life through intricate inked illustrations in handwritten manuscripts hundreds of years ago, you can now create your own stunning keepsake that will be treasured for years to come.
This journal contains full color illustrations from the Museum of the Bible on lined pages for you to write your own journal. There are full pages of black outlined illustrations for you to color in.
I think that this journal would make a wonderful addition for those who love journaling and reflecting on the word.
