Doodle Challenge for February 2020 – Love

February 2020 doodle challenge

The doodle challenge was a big hit in January and my group couldn’t wait for this to be posted 🙂  This month’s theme is, (as expected): Love 🙂  I added a few faith components at the end, but for the most part, these doodles are traditionally Valentine’s-day themed.  That seems what people really wanted, so I’m giving you what you asked for 🙂

I can’t wait to see your interpretations!

 

Why do we doodle?  Doodling simple things helps you to develop your drawing skills, which helps you increase your Bible art journaling skills.  It also increases your hand/eye coordination which helps in many areas of life!

This challenge is participated in by the members of my Facebook group, Christian Planner, Journal, and Craft Fellowship and any of you who would like to join us! You can join us in the group or join along on Instagram.

I usually print these out on 28 pound white paper (or 32 pound paper is even better) and just stick them right into my planner or journal. The heavier the paper, the less chance it will tear out of your binder or planner by accident and helps resist bleeding or ghosting from your pens or markers. It helps the page turn easier too.

If you choose to print these out on full-size (letter) sticker paper. I use these here. They’re priced great and you can write on them easily. They are good enough quality for my needs. If you want a top-quality sticker paper look for these or clear ones here. (Though not all pens or markers will write well on the clear ones). If you don’t want to use sticker paper, you can print them on card stock or regular printer paper and glue them down. Honestly, the sticker paper is the best way, however. Regardless of the type.

Going through a lot of ink printing out planner stickers? Do like I did and enlist in the HP Instant Ink program! I’ve saved so much money on ink since I did a year and a half ago. They have different plans, but the one I’m in (the most pages) is that I can print up to 300 pages worth of ink for just over $9.99 per month. You can choose lesser pages for a lower rate, but I do a lot of printing between coupons, planner stickers and other things. Click on the image here to check it out! –>

Doodle Challenge for April 2019 -Easter and Spring!

April 2019 Doodle Challenge

I’m playing catch up today getting my groups and blogs ready for April. Wow, where did the month of March go??  Well I was pretty distracted with my husband in the hospital again, but it still seemed to fly by.

This month is the most important time of year for a Christian. The holiday some call Easter and some call Resurrection Day.  Either way, in the life of a believer in Jesus, it’s all about celebrating the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  No other “religious” leader has been resurrected from the dead to live forever more to intercede at the right hand of God for those who trust Him for salvation and eternal life.

That’s what this month’s doodle is about, of course!

Doodle Challenge for May 2018

May 2018 Doodle Challenge

As the old saying goes, April showers bring May flowers.  I thought it would be a great idea to doodle flowers for May!  There are some flowers I’m unacquainted with, so this is also a great way to get to know flowers a little bit better.

I know this may be challenging, so I’m giving you two great resources!

2.  Also check out the drawing tutorials by Liz who is @bonjournal_  on Instagram! https://www.instagram.com/bonjournal_/
     Liz is one of my favorite bullet journalers and she has a LOT of images on Instagram showing you step by step how to
    draw a lot of different flowers!  I spent a long time late last night downloading a lot of her tutorial pictures.  (I use an app
    called “Fast Save” -it used to be called InstaSave but had to change their name). She draws so many gorgeous flowers in
    her bullet journal!

This challenge is participated in by the members of my Facebook group, Christian Planner, Journal, and Craft Fellowship and any of you who would like to join us! You can join us in the group or join along on Instagram. The doodle challenge just started last month, so we are growing into it, but there’s a lot of fun going on in the group with it 🙂

Our First Doodling Challenge! February 2018

Doodle Challenge

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m the admin of a growing group on Facebook called, “Christian Planner, Journal, and Craft Fellowship“.  Seeing how many of us have hit the winter blahs, I thought I’d perk things up by offering a monthly doodling challenge.  Many of our members would like to improve our drawing skills and I think the practice a monthly doodling challenge will give us can go a long way in doing that.  Besides…doodling is fun! Right?  🙂

So here we go.  The first 7 days are empty because I’m just starting this on the 8th.
