There are multiple ways to highlight Bible Verses, Let’s get Creative!
Let’s face it, we spend most of our journaling time on very creative illustrations/graphics/images and even hand lettering, but when it comes to highlighting the bible verses, there isn’t much creative instruction out there to change things up. Until now, that is.
When highlighting Bible verses you need to take into consideration the following:
- Always test new products in an inconspicuous area near the back to determine if they are going to smear the type, or bleed through the paper.
- The age of your Bibles may determine the different mediums that work well for you, since the ink in older Bibles will not smear like the ink in new Bibles, if you are using a hard core colored pencil.
- Transparent Gel Crayons that are creamy and transparent, that let the print shine through, usually work well, but some brands literally melt and smear the type in freshly printed Bibles.
- Products that have glitter or are metallic are usually hard to read through.
