Introduction: Decorative Squiggles
I learned how to do this in fourth grade. I never learned what it was called so I like to call it decorative squiggles. It is very simple to do, but also time consuming. You don't have to do it all in one sitting though. I also find it relaxing and it can give you time to just think.
Step 1: Start
Start with a paper or card that you wish to do the design on, and have a fine point pen ready. I am using a black Sharpie pen, you can use any color you wish or mix mach colors.
Step 2: Draw
First draw a shape. It does not have to be a squiggly shape it can be a rectangle or triangle.
Step 3: Draw Inside
Next draw in the inside of the shape following the edge but not touching all the way around and join.
Step 4: Finish the Shape
Continue following the edge and drawing smaller and smaller shapes inside until you can't anymore. You have finished one shape now.
Step 5: Continue
Continue by joining another shape to the completed one and make the smaller ones inside.
Step 6: Keep Going
Keep attaching shapes. This can be time consuming but it is worth it for how awesome it looks when it is done.
Step 7: The Edges
When you reach an edge do not complete the shape leave the edge of the paper open like so.
Step 8: Edges Fill
Continue filling it like normal but keep the edge open. This is not necessary but it looks nice.
Step 9: Finished
Once you have filled in the whole of what you where filling in you are done. Congratulations! Not many people have the patience for an activity like this.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
