Genesis Scripture Doodles (Free Printable!)

If you’ve been around here lately, you know that I’ve been studying the Old Testament this year.  I’ve fallen in love with the inspirational stories and the beautiful words of encouragement.  So much so that most of my 100 Days of Scripture Lettering project so far has featured insights from Genesis.  (These resources are making all the difference in my study time this year.)

Because I’m such a visual learner, I spend a lot of time doodling in my scriptures and my scripture journal.  It helps me retain information and find specific insights again when I’m looking for them later.

Plus I love making things pretty.

As I was working on coloring these doodles in my Bible, I thought you might be interested in having a copy to trace into your own scriptures. This free download includes three pages of my hand-drawn sketchnotes. These are the words and stories that stood out to me. I tried to include a drawing or quote from each of the more well-known stories in Genesis, but I can’t promise they’re all here.


I use a homemade lightbox to trace these images into my scriptures/scripture journal.  (My husband is a genius and loves making things like that for me. Yes, I’m a lucky lady!) But this lightbox would work really well, too.
I like to use colored pencils so I can still read and use my scriptures. I LOVE these Staedtler Ergosoft colored pencils. I use them exclusively to add color in my scriptures.  They give a beautiful vibrant color and blend really well together. They are soft enough that they’ve never ripped through the thin pages.
I use the lightbox and trace the outlines of the graphics into my scriptures with black colored pencil.  It’s a little awkward to hold the book just right as I’m tracing, so I only do the outline and then I color the doodles in without using the lightbox.
I’m looking forward to sharing Scripture Doodles from every book in the Old Testament this year. {Gulp! That feels like huge commitment…Please leave a comment or send me an email if you think that would be useful to you.  I’ll need the encouragement 🙂 }
