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.
