Bible journaling fruit is not only fun (and easy!), there are so many beautiful Bible verses where you can add fruit to highlight and tell a story.

 

In a recent post, I share the symbolism of fruit in the Bible (as well as the eight ways it is used in Scripture). Today, we are taking our conversation a bit further and sharing how to draw fruit in your Bible journaling.

 

There are six main fruits mentioned in the Bible: apples, grapes, figs, dates, olives and pomegranates. Today, I’ll show you how to draw all of them to use in your Bible journaling or art journaling.

 

What I’m sharing is simply my style -not incredibly realistic – more illustrative or “cartoony” (is that a word?) but perfect for my style of Bible journaling.

 

Are you reading to draw fruit in your Bible journaling?

 

Let’s get started!

 

How to Draw Apples for Bible Journaling

Note – many of my photos, I am showing on their side, as that is the way I hold my paper when I draw and I think it allows you to see the orientation a bit better.

 

Apples figure prominently in the Bible (starting with the Garden of Eden!) but there are many other verses where adding an apple to your Bible journaling makes sense (see below for verses on apples).

 

Start by drawing a loose circle

Color the apple with shades of red. (I used Stampin’ Up! Watercolor pencils and a blender pen for this). But, feel free to use anything that you have on hand – markers, gelatos, colored pencils, etc. (See this post for the best pens and markers for Bible journaling).

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.

 

Song of Solomon 2:3
As an apple tree among the trees of the forest, so is my beloved among the young men. With great delight I sat in his shadow, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.

 

Psalm 17:8
Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings,

 

Proverbs 7:2
Keep my commandments and live; keep my teaching as the apple of your eye;

And seeing a fig tree by the wayside, he went to it and found nothing on it but only leaves. And he said to it, “May no fruit ever come from you again!” And the fig tree withered at once.

Luke 21:29-31
