Hi Everyone! Marie Browning here with some random doodles. For this post, I’m presenting
some Random Journal Doodles for your planners, journals, tags or decorating the front of envelopes!
I use products from Tombow to create the Random Journal Doodles, and as their signature Designer, I receive all these products to play with. This coloring method uses Tombow’s wonderful new MONO Drawing Pens and TwinTone Markers!
Step 1: Sketch the Doodles Use a mix media paper, but remember this method works on a wide variety of journal papers and cardstock. For the first step, use a 3H or 4H MONO Drawing Pencil to sketch out your doodle. Use a light touch when sketching to avoid denting your paper.
Step 2: Ink the Doodle Use the MONO Drawing Pen 05 and outline the doodle and any main parts with this thicker pen tip. Step 3: Continue Inking
Use the finer tips of the 03 and 01 MONO Drawing Pens for the details such as the lettering and shade marks. At this time, erase the pencil marks. I like to use the MONO Light Eraser or the medium sized MONO Eraser, white.
Step 5: Blend the color With a brush and water, blend the TwinTone colors. Be careful not to over blend – you may still see the original line of color and that’s okay, it gives the doodle more interest. Let dry completely before moving on to the next step.
Step 6: Add Details With the extra fine tips of the TwinTone Markers, add more interest by adding details to your Random Journal Doodles. It’s these fine colored details that really add fun elements to your doodles.
