The Bible verses I chose for this tutorial are:

Genesis 1:1   In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 

Romans 1:20   For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.

Exodus 20:11   For in SIX DAYS the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.

I love this Bible verse. Just in case we didn’t get it the first time around in Genesis 1, God engraved it on a tablet of stone for us with His own finger!

You are welcome to download my samples in full resolution here:
Exodus 20
;  Romans 1;  Genesis 1

  1. On the link you posted for the free fonts, do you know whether these can be used on a personal blog, like how I use for adding Bible verses to my photos? I have wanted to use different fonts than what is in Adobe Illustrator, but have never found a site that I was sure was ok to do the above. Then there is the pesky problem of how to upload them for use. Oh well, any help would be amazing! However, since my neck is still not doing well, will probably go on the back burner of my wish list. Blessings
