2018 Christmas Gift Review & Giveaway - The Illustrated Word: An Illuminated Bible Coloring Journal

I was recently invited to review three Art Journals from Ellie Claire and today I am delighted to share with you my opinion of these Art Journals, highly recommend them for a thoughtful, unique and lovely gift and announce a giveaway for one of them.

The Illustrated Word: An Illuminated Bible Coloring Journal
Faith & Lettering Journal
Illuminate Your Story Journal
Designed by - Krystal Whitten
Published by - Ellie Claire

Favorite Features -
  • Beautiful. All three of these art journals are absolutely beautiful.
  • I love the quality which clearly went into the developing and design of each of these art journals.
  • Heavy weight paper - will hold up to any pen used to write, draw and color in these art journals.
  • Faith & Lettering Journal and Illuminate Your Story Journal both have a pen holder built into the side of the art journals - excellent design!
Ellie Claire says; "Glorious illustrations from ancient manuscripts recreated as line drawings for the reader to color. Create your own masterpiece with The Illustrated Word: An Illuminated Bible Coloring  Journal which has forty glorious illustrations from ancient manuscripts recreated as line drawings. Just as medieval monks brought Scripture to life through intricate inked illustrations in handwritten manuscripts hundreds of years ago, you are now able to create your own stunning keepsake which will be treasured for years to come.

The perfect resource to discover and develop your own personal style for lettering and illustrating your faith. New from professional letterer Krystal Whitten! With guides, instructions, and tutorials, Faith & Lettering Journal 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.

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.
HIGHLIGHTS: Illuminate Your Story Journal has a cloth spine opens for lay-flat journaling; Elastic pen loop on spine; High-quality, non-bleed paper; Uplifting, inspirational quotes sprinkled throughout; Drawing guides, grid background practice pages, plus lined pages for journaling; Ribbon marker, pocket, elastic band closure."
All three of these art journals are beautiful, you will love them all. And I call them "art journals", because they are far more than simply a journal. Yes, they each have pages for you to use as you journal you own thoughts, notes, whatever you want, but they each also have extra features to help you learn to draw the most beautiful letters, flourishes and/or color the illustrations in the art journals. Each of these would make wonderful, thoughtful and unique gifts which would be treasured by whomever receives them. Add a nice pen and/or colored pencil set and you have an incredible gift!
