By  |  0 Comments

Doodling has fast become a popular trend over the past couple of years. Even if you’re not an experienced art or graphic designer, turning your hand to doodling is easier than you think. Whether you’re looking to spruce up your living room, bedroom, home office or children’s bedroom, here are out top tips on how you can nail this trend. 

Try out some doodles

Before you start painting and drawing on the wall, try out some doodle designs on a piece of paper. Just like before you start exercising you need to warm up. Try setting a timer for 10 minutes and start drawing whatever comes to mind. Don’t overthink what you’re doing or set any crazy expectations, just draw. Whether you draw shapes, words, symbols or characters, keep drawing for the full 10 minutes and see where your pen takes you. 

Remember, there’s no right or wrong way to doodle. Take your eyes off the immaculate images on Pinterest and focus on what you can do, that way your creation will be more unique. You’ll find your own style as you continue to practice. 

Get yourself the right products

There are a wealth of products out there to help you create your doodle wall. If you’re drawing onto a wall with paint or pens you’re likely to have the best outcome. However, you could try doodling on other surfaces too such as glass, wood and even tiles! But you’ll have to make sure you have the right products. 

Instead of spending hours dipping a paint brush into different colours, why not invest in some paint pens? These are incredibly easy to use and will likely cut your job time in half! You’ll be able to create the perfect mural or doodle wall in a matter of hours and have plenty of fun doing it too. 

How to make a start

It can be a little daunting when you get round to making a start. The best thing to do is to have a rough plan of what you want your doodle wall to look like. Do you want to fill your space with different shapes and colours or do you want it to be completely random? Remember there’s no right or wrong way to do this. 

Once you’re ready to make a start it’s as simple as putting paint/pen to wall! Stick on some music, go to your happy place and start doodling away. Don’t forget to step back and admire your work as you go, that way you’ll also be able to see whether or not you need to add in anything extra or if your space if filled enough.
