Bible Journaling - Genesis 9:13-16
Topic: Bible Journaling

We had a challenge on the Bible journaling group I belong to, to use colored pencil blending and highlighting on a Bible page. My mind immedaitely skipped to rainbows so I turned to Genesis 9.

I think the thing that struck e in meditating on these verses as I was doing the artwork was that God did not put the rainbow in the sky to remind US of his covenant (to never flood the entire earth again) but he says: When I bring clouds over the earth and  the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you.

Even though the rainbow obviously does not have dividing lines between the various colors, I drew them in with my pen to keep the illustration in the same style as my other work in this Bible.

I did color and blend across the lines, though, then I followed up by blending the colors even more with a Prismacolor colorless blender pencil.


I left uncolored the word 'rainbow' the three times it appeared in these verses and then went back to fill them in with a contrasting color.


In the lettering, I only wroteout verse 13. I gave special attention to the word 'rainbow' and colored it with blended pencils in the same colors as the main illustration.


I added a little drawing of the dove coming back to the ark with an olive branch.
