It’s a fact, there are many stresses in life. At this point in time it seems there are more than usual. I began to list a few and stopped myself, we all know what they are, in fact many of us are victims of the times we are living in. So, here’s a quick, easy and inexpensive escape—DOODLE a Bit.
A night or two ago I sat down with a blank journal. I chose to start small and gathered felt-tipped pens and colored pencils. I had some photographs of my grandchildren from Valentine’s Day weekend, and decided to make our celebration my first theme.
“A doodle is a drawing made while a person’s attention is otherwise occupied. Doodles are simple drawings that can have concrete representational meaning or may just be abstract shapes.
Stereotypical examples of doodling are found in school notebooks, often in the margins, drawn by students daydreaming or losing interest during class.Other common examples of doodling are produced during long telephone conversations if a pen and paper are available.” Wikipedia
My first attempt is not fine art, but it was FINE RELAXATION. I had forgotten how completely relaxing it is to do simple, easy artwork. My advice: if you are stressed, grab a piece of paper, a pencil or pen—and DOODLE away.
I found a cute blog on Doodling: Doodle Addicted
Here are two of the blog author’s doodling videos. Watching the videos is almost as soothing as doodling yourself. Enjoy!
This amazing little video shows you how to create fillers for your doodles—so much fun!
🙂 Thanks for Doodling on By! 🙂
