Who among us doesn’t simply love to doodle—or, at the very least, doodle to pass the time during long meetings or classes? Now you can learn the fine art of doodling while exercising your creativity at the same time. Creative Doodling & Beyond features a fun variety of projects, prompts, exercises, and ideas to get your doodling juices flowing, while also providing inspiration for how to use your doodles creatively.

After learning about some of the basic tools and materials you’ll want to have readily available, learn some fun and easy ways to ignite your doodling spark. Then try your hand and replicating a variety of patterns and borders, and other elements directly in the pages of this colorful workbook. And from there, the real fun begins! Using the approachable step-by-step projects, you can create:

  • Doodled gift tags
  • Doodle-stamped gift wrap
  • A family heirloom handprint doodle
  • A family seek & find game
  • An embroidered wishing star stuffie

  • And more!

The book culminates with an idea gallery that shows even more creative ways you can incorporate doodles into everyday art and décor.

Creative Doodling & Beyond is meant to inspire you to abandon your preconceived ideas about what art is and isn’t; show you how easy it is to doodle; teach you how to create beautiful art using doodles; and help you connect to your inner artist! By the time you finish the exercises and projects in this book, you will not only find inspiration everywhere, but you will also habitually tote doodle notebooks with you wherever you go, filling them with happy little pen marks and drawings on every page.
