The story of David & Goliath is well known and brings up many mental images. On this day I found my mind so full of those many images that I was a little overwhelmed. So a simple ribbon pattern emerged on this page.
Outlined in black fine point black pen and colored with prismacolor pencils.
It's like the ribbons of the story flowing through time, little pieces breaking off to be caught in your mind to be found later when you need them.

I wanted to show you that you do not need to be an expert artist to do bible journaling. This little sketch representing all the trees mentioned in Judges 9 was really more like a doodle.
None of these trees looks like a real tree yet you get the impression of them. I used a regular black ballpoint pen, as I often did way back when and then lightly colored the sketch with watercolors. It was just that simple.
My watercolors are the ones you buy for kids in the plastic box from your local Walmart. I do have nice artist brushes, but certainly not the top of the line ones. My point is you can create with whatever you have.
Along those thought lines I would like to recommend this video:
It is short but excellent, reminding us why we are bible journaling in the first place.
