I recently discovered Bible Art Journaling, using art to illustrate directly over and around scripture in a Bible of what the Lord is teaching. For this I purchased a separate Amplified version and use watercolor pencils. On the inside cover page I illustrated a vintage amplifier.
Psalms 92 speaks of believers as cedars and palms, and the church illustration is from a memory where the Lord spoke to me his promises. Other illustrations are from Matthew, Thessalonians, and Psalms.
Illustrations of what came to mind as I read Isaiah 49:16, Hebrews 1:11, Jude and 2 Peter 3:7 are drawn directly over the text.
What fascinates me the most is the time I spend in each passage as I illustrate what God is teaching me, discovering more than I originally set out to study. For example, the reference to "My hands" is repeated throughout Isaiah Ch. 49 and 50. Plus, the Amplified Bible gives the full meaning of each word or phrase to help me understanding what Scripture really says.
For me, this is being created as a keepsake for my kids and future generations, in the same way I love looking through the pages of my grandmothers Bible and the notes she wrote of what was meaningful to her. I hope someday what I have illustrated will touch someone's life as she continues to touch mine.
The best advice I've received is: Remember to date each completed page. I've also added additional notes in the back for illustrations that have more personal meaning.
If this is something you are interested in doing, there are no rules of what or how to illustrate. Just seeking a loving and all powerful, all knowing Father for His perfect wisdom and direction in the lives of His children.
