25 Days of Christmas...Matthew 1:18 (and your HANDWRITING!)
I am working through my Bible Art Journal in December using some of my favorite sections of the gospels to compile the Christmas Story...plus a little more in the book of John I just couldn't leave out!

I actually had a class in college that taught me fairly perfect penmanship because I was teaching children how to write...but I rarely use it in my daily life outside of a classroom. Why? Because I do believe our own handwriting really comes with its own flair of personality to it. So with that said, I want to give you a couple of tips in making your own handwriting more pleasing to your own eye...
I am a huge stamper (which is a good thing since I now run a small Christian stamp company LOL). But you can use your own handwriting for much of any journaling you do, and just add stamps to give it a little variance (more on this another day).
I created the backgrounds in this journal using Ranger Dylusions spray inks and journal. Here is the Scripture I wrote on the first pages of my 25 Days of Christmas Journal:
