Hi Everyone! Marie Browning here with some random doodles. For this post, I’m presenting
some Random Journal Doddles for your planners, journals, tags or decorating the front of
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
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 4: Add TwinTone Color
Add the TwinTone colors by adding a line of color in each part of the doodle. I used colors from
both the Bright TwinTone Set and the Pastel TwinTone Set.
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.
