A while ago I came across blog post: “Permission Pages: the perfectionist’s approach to the journaling Bible.” Lauren, the creator of that post, explains well what “Permission Pages” are and why one might want to create one, or several, in a journaling Bible.
I loved the idea and added two as tip-ins at the front of my Bible. If you view Lauren’s original post, you’ll see that I included many of her ideas on my pages and added a few more of my own.
The pages are parchment paper, attached to the inside of the front cover pages with washi tape. The lettering was done with Pigma Micron pens, the coloring with pencil crayons.
Creating these pages was a good way for me to revisit why I’m doing this, and my expectations of myself and what the process of Bible art journaling will do for me. If you’re a Bible journaler, you might want to create permission pages for your journaling Bible.
