War Binder Customization | Prayer Journaling


Just wanted to share some photos of the cover of my #warbinder. I'm a newbie to this and recently found out about this form of journaling through my sister. I believe it might've taken off after the movie War Room and spreading popularity through Instagram. To me it's a mix of planner + bible journaling + scrapbooking all in one with the subject of prayer, spiritual warfare to be exact..hence the name war binder. 

Now more about my binder. I picked up a 3-ring Avery clear cover heavy-duty binder at the store yesterday. Being that we don't have a Target where I live now (love their stationery section) I had to make do with what was offered here and also the fact that I couldn't wait and needed something asap. The price online is lower than what I paid in store but I wanted to start on my project that day 😬

I made a digital collage of ephemera and printed it out on Hahnemuhle matte inkjet photo paper ..it's what I had on hand at the moment and let me tell you it's a beautiful paper that's not too thick but light enough and thin enough to slip under the clear cover of my binder. It prints wonderfully and my inkjet printer has never had its printing look so good. Paper makes a difference.

To further adorn my collage...I didn't know when to stop and neither could I control myself...I added washi tape and stickers. Because you know washi tape and stickers... 

On my cover I decided on the verse from 1 Thessalonians 5: 17 "Pray without ceasing" and I also added the word {Amen} which I cut by hand and ended up gluing the letters on when the sticker paper I used wasn't tacky enough. 

There's also a Facebook group War Binder which I learned about from my sister Hillary which was started by Rachel Puckett. Rachel is also on Periscope @penpalhappyness and she shares lots about her binders and gives you ideas on how to start yours by showing you how she uses hers. 

4/30-I've just learned that Rachel has started a website for War Binder at http://warbinder.blogspot.com. There she shares her testimony about the start of War Binder, incredible and amazing! May God bless you Rachel🕊💗

Now to work on the inside. I hope to share more photos as I go along. I'll perhaps post a main photo on IG and extra photos here. To be continued...
