How to Doodle for Bullet Journal Spreads


It’s still early in 2020 where people are still on fire to go chasing their goals and do everything they could to make it happen.

I’m curious to know what’s on your things-to-learn bucket list this year.

I’ve got a lot. And learning how to doodle is one of them.

Ever seen those cute doodles all over the pages and wonder if you can do the same thing too but then got frustrated because it’s apparently not easy? Yeah been there.

But maybe if we start small, with a simple doodle one hour per day, then it wouldn’t’ be that overwhelming.

If you are like me, I’ve rounded up 10 doodle tutorials you can try.

Don’t worry to make your doodle perfect, progress over perfection, remember?:)

Alright, so we’ll start with this cute and simple penguins doodle by _doodle_me_this_
