Here are the pens that Tracie recommends.

Watercolor and Gelatos

Tracie’s favorite watercolors are Kuretake Gansai Tambi. Her set is over 7 years old and till going strong! You can find those and other watercolor recommendations here.

For Gellatos, Tracie prefers the Fabercastel gelatos as they are the most pigmented. Neocolor crayons are her favorite for mixed media projects. However, she has shared lower-cost solutions as well. You can find her recommended gelato and gel stick sets here.

Digital Supplies

We love digital images because they’re usually free or very inexpensive, plus they’re super easy to store on the computer, print out on transparencies, or filed in a binder. We find that the best bible journaling supplies are portable. The easier you make it the easier it is to grab and go when inspiration strikes you. That’s why we focus on providing resources and templates for you to use as you journal.

Discounted Bible Journaling Supplies

You can find discounted bible journaling supplies at your local Dollar Tree, Target, thrift store, Tuesday Morning, and with a coupon from Michaels, JoAnns, and Hobby Lobby.

Bible journaling supplies should be easy to grab and go.

eBay, Craigslist, yard sales, and your community Facebook groups are a perfect place to find gently used supplies as well. If you’re buying online, try using Ebates to get a rebate on anything you purchase. If you’re new to Ebates, here’s our referral link for a $10 gift card after you’re first purchase.

Consider getting a group together for a swap or ask your friends if they have any they want to get rid of. You never know what you’ll get if you ask.

Bible journaling doesn’t have to be expensive. It’s better to start now rather than wait until you can afford “all of the things”. Take the first step by grabbing what you have on hand and giving it awhirl. When the time is right, then splurge on something that makes you happy and provides joy to your journey.
