Super Easy! A Page in 10 Minutes
Or hole punch and place in an Illustrated Faith Praise book or notebook.

When you do art in your Bible and digital its called Hybrid Bible Journaling. I use this method a lot. Margin strips fit into planners too! You’ll find lots of free printable margin strips on this site.

Purchase a Bible template (purchase one use hundreds of times) and share your art in Social Media (Facebook, Pinterest, forums)

10. Create a Topicl Bible Study in a Planner
If you want to Bible Journal Digitally you need the Photoshop Elements basics. You can start classes TODAY! And retrain access forever with classes by Linda Sattgast. Linda taught me to use Photoshop Elements, she’s an amazingly helpful teacher! I learned how to use Photoshop by taking a class from Linda Sattgast, the Digital Scrapper. I looked over Linda’s online Photoshop Element Video Class and realized she covers all the basics you need to know to begin Bible Journaling Digitally for a very reasonable price. Linda cuts to the chase. She is the best PSE teacher available. By the time you finish Linda’s classes you will be ready for my classes which combine several methods of Bible study with digital art you see in all the physical Bible journaling pages. This means you can start learning right away (and will save me months of creating classes that Linda has already done beautifully). No need to reinvent the wheel!
11 Going Digital Benefits
I promise you will love Linda’s lessons. She planted seeds in my life resulting in a ton of fruit. I learned Photoshop from her then taught my daughter (Rebecca, the Well Planned Gal) who used it to create planners and magazines. Rebecca taught my granddaughter who started her own magazine for Christian teens titled Dear. These classes are geared toward digital scrapbooking however they are valuable for any type business work or craft projects. And they are priced at a real bargain.
