Grab your supplies. I pulled out quite a few as you can see in the picture, but not all were used.Doodle1

Prime the pages of the art journal with gesso. I used an old credit card to spread it around then leave to dry.
Doodle2
Add ink and blow on it. A straw can come in handy!
Doodle3

Using mists and ink, mask a shape onto the pages. I used a fine circle mask. I also glued some leftovers from a cut out from a previous project.
Doodle4

Brush a fine layer of gesso over the pages to soften the overall look.
Doodle5
Mist some butterflies onto some sheets of paper from an old book and doodle around the edges.
Doodle6
Doodle7

I also added some doodled arrows. I call it guided doodling as I used a the negative of a cut out.
Doodle8

Draw a border around the pages and add some doodling to the sides. Colour them in using Chromatix markers or Memory Markers.
Doodle9

Stamp arrows using the stamps from the Chap collection and the Amy Tangerine Sketchbook collection.
Doodle10

Punch out some butterflies from the patterned papers and doodle around the edges.
Doodle11

Choose a few shapes from the Bits and stick them down. I cut the doodled circle into different pieces.
Doodle12

Stick your all your elements down and add a title. You can also doodle some circles onto the pages.

Here is a YouTube video showing the entire process:
I hope you give doodling a go, if it is on a layout, card or other project. Don't forget the most important rule in doodling: HAVE FUN!
