If you’ve been Bible journaling for a while, you’ve probably encountered this issue. There are many ways to resolve it.
- Do a tip-in
- Journal the opposing page
- Depending on the size of your first entry, you might be able to squeeze in two entries on one page
- Journal somewhere else: new Bible, journal, Praise Book, to name a few
For Psalm 34, I not only journaled this before, but I blocked out around the verse with white gesso. This was for the How He Loves devo kit by Illustrated Faith. While continuing in the kit, I realized another devotional verse was for the same page, so I made a tip-in for that entry. (Incidentally, this prompted me to mark all verses in a kit in the beginning!)
This week I read chapter 11 in Uninvited and wanted to journal the verses mentioned along with the “Ten things You Mist Remember When Rejected.” 70% of the verses were found in Psalm 34.
Since I used an inkjet printer (I have no experience running tracing paper through a laser printer. I’m not sure if it will work or if it would damage a laser printer.), I didn’t want to highlight on top of the ink and potentially cause it to smear. Using my colorful Faber-Castell Big Brush Pitt Pens, I highlighted the verses from the backside of the vellum.
