DOODLE DAY JULY - DAY 31


Welcome to Day 31 of the Doodle Day July drawing challenge! You made it! Today is the last day of July. Congratulations! I hope you all keep doodling. It is great for building hand/eye coordination, reducing stress, releasing and increasing creativity, and it's fun, too. What was your favorite prompt this month? Leave it as a comment or let me know your thoughts. The Doodle Day Facebook Group page will not close - it will stay open and active and I will continue to post my doodles, links to tutorials I find, classes to recommend, books I hear about, artists I want to share, ideas and inspiration and I hope you all will, too. The Doodle Day participants have been such a great group of supportive and encouraging and inspiring individuals - I hope you will stick around or pop in when you can so that you can continue to inspire and be inspired.

Here is the link list of every prompt post from this month - you are always welcome to use the reference photos and doodle from any of the prompts.

I did create a t-shirt, notebook, mug design of the assorted doodles of the word "doodle" that were emailed to me and I also have the design at the top of this post. I will post the link to the Café Press store later today.

Now, for today's doodle prompt - Alayne has posted one of her favorite ways to create a doodle that truly embraces the absentmindedness of a "doodle." Click below to head to her blog and check it out:

Have fun!

  1. My favorites were totem and flip, flap, fly. They surprised me as the ideas took me to different heights. Yeah, I' m being silly, but they were my favs nonetheless!
