A great to relax, be creative, and relieve stress is to make doodle art. I just love to see what I end up with once I get started. I hope you will find it as fun as I do. Do it along with me if you will. Anyone can do this!
Step 1: Step 1
Start with a blank piece of paper. It is up to you what size and type of paper. I used sharpie permanent markers for this tutorial. They were a combination of the thin, medium, and thick lined markers.
Step 2: Step 2
Draw a 5 petal flower.
Step 3: Step 3
Add a thin line on each petal of the flower.
Step 4: Step 4
Darken in the lined area to make a thicker line.
Step 5: Step 5
Add finials that are little scrolls.
Step 6: Step 6
Draw larger petals around each of the smaller flower petals.
Step 7: Step 7
Draw slanted lines around one side of each flower petal.
Step 8: Step 8
Color in every other slanted area around each side of the flower petal.
Step 9: Step 9
Clean up the lines by going over the design with a larger marker.
Step 10: Step 10
Add more finials around the center of the flower.
Step 11: Step 11
Add dots to the other side of the flower petals.
Step 12: Step 12
Add a stem to the flower.
Step 13: Step 13
Go over the lines of the stem with a larger marker to darken the line.
Step 14: Step 14
Add thin and thick lines down the stem of the flower.
Step 15: Step 15
Draw three leaves on the stem, adding zig-zag lines on one side of each leaf.
Step 16: Step 16
Color in the plain side of each leaf with the black marker.
Step 17: Step 17
Go over the zig-zag lines to clean them up and make them darker.
Step 18: Step 18
Add lines to the zig-zag design.
Step 19: Step 19
To complete the design I add more finials around the outer part of the flower petals.
I hope you enjoy this tutorial. Take your time, relax, and feel the stress leave your body while creating beautiful art.
