Doodling


Doodling is fast becoming a fun way to embellish scrapbook pages and other forms of the paper arts. When doodling for scrapbooking make sure your drawing tool (pencil, color pencils, markers, and pens) are acid free so there will be no damage to your photos or albums.

  • Most of us at least doodled as children so take a break from your everyday worries and be a kid again! Start by taking a sheet of cardstock and pen, relax and just daydream while drawing, scribbling, and doodling on the paper. Don’t think about it; just let your hand be your guide.
     
  • As you get more comfortable with doodling, use a patterned or designed paper instead of a plain sheet of cardstock. Doodle around the design or patterns. Coordinate and contrast your writing instrument with the colors within the paper. Enhance the paper in front of you.
     
  • You can also be organized in your doodles. It may seem contrary since doodle are supposed to be done without thought, but try planning out the your doodles. For a garden page, doodle flowers. For a 4th of July page doodle fireworks. For a birthday page, doodle presents or balloons.
     
  • Doodles add a personal touch to a scrapbook page or other paper art. It’s your hand creating some interesting and embellishing “art work” to the page just like a written signature.
     
  • Use a variety of writing and coloring tools. Mix up the colors. Draw lines, shapes, outlines, and solid blocks of color and texture.

A little doodle interpretation…

  • Faces: The simple face is a motif from early childhood, with a genuine 'smiley' suggesting a happy-go-lucky nature. A beautiful face can also indicate a sociable 'people person'.
  • Houses: Houses are regarded as representing the home life.
  • Flowers: Doodles of flowers indicate a gentle personality, a love of nature, childlike innocence or wistfulness.
  • Geometric Shapes: Regular patterns from geometric shapes tend to indicate an organized and efficient mind. Triangles suggest direction and sense of purpose.
  • Circles: The circle appears in every culture as an archetypal form representative of the eternal whole. With no ending or beginning it also represents the universe.
  • Games & Mazes: Game grids such as chess or checkers suggest a competitive nature and desire to win - or a love of the game!
  • Hearts: You're in love. Generally, hearts are drawn by people in love, but may also indicate a romantic disposition.
  • Arrows: Arrows represent direction and ambition. Drawn aggressively, they represent a desire for action. Drawn in careful outline, they indicate a desire for progression or advancement, especially if pointing upwards.
  • Boxes & Perspective Forms: Perspective drawing is quite an advanced stage in artistic development. 3-D boxes indicate an ordered mind and love of routine
