When I first started my Bullet Journal in 2018, I had no idea how to doodle. The idea of doodling myself in my journal really intimidated me. I thought I could never have doodles as pretty as I saw on Instagram and Pinterest.

After practicing and gaining confidence, I think I figured out the secret to getting better at doodling. It very rapidly became my source of therapy, calmness, and creativity.

Doodling Tips

Let’s start with some simple tips that I picked up on my journey to improving my drawing skills.

  • Warm up. Just like with brush lettering, before you start doodling, it can be a good idea to warm up a bit. Try freehand doodling – take a piece of paper and randomly start filling it out with shapes and lines or whatever you want. Put the timer, don’t pressure yourself – just let your creativity flow.
  • Learn to see everything in basic shapes. This is a skill that will take some time, but once you master it – there will be nothing you can’t doodle! My tip is to start doing a lot of step-by-step tutorials like this one; it will train you to see the simple shapes each doodle is created from.
  • Try different pens. There are many awesome pens you can use for doodling, all of which have different thicknesses and ink. Depending on what pen you use, your doodles can look different, so try out different things and find what you like the best.
  • Don’t pressure yourself. There is no right or wrong way to doodle something. My way of doodling a laptop can look different from how you doodle the same laptop, and that’s totally ok. Don’t pressure yourself to doodle exactly like somebody else.
  • Find your comfy place. Finally, since doodling is in many ways a mindfulness practice, try to sit and doodle in a happy place. Somewhere you feel comfortable, safe, and can have a minute to yourself.

And that’s it; you’re almost ready to start doodling!

Best Doodling Supplies

There are so many amazing Bullet Journal supplies, but you really don’t need them all to start doodling.

To be honest, all you need is a pen and a piece of paper. 

But let’s be honest – if you’re here, you’re probably also a bit obsessed with stationery and investing in your Bullet Journal supplies. So here are some pens I think you might consider working on your doodles.

  • Fineliners. These are definitely the pens to draw with. They are smooth, have black and water-resistant ink, and come with different thicknesses. Perfect to add more interest to your doodles. My go-to ones are Sakura Pigma Micron and Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens.
  • Colored pens and markers. Keeping your doodles black and white is super fun, but you might also want to add color. My favorites are probably Crayola Super Tips, which come in 100 colors for a very good price. As for colored pens – I love my acrylograph pens by Archer and Olive (you can also get those with 10% discount if you use my code MASHA10)
  • Circle maker. I’m not a huge fan of using rulers at all, but when it comes to circles – you can’t really do it without one. My go-to is this Helix circle maker.

There are, of course, tons of other pens I love for doodling, with different ink and price ranges. Be sure to check the end of the post for some more recommendations.

How To Practice Doodling

You have all my tips, and you have these tutorials, let’s talk about the ways you can practice doodling so you get better and better as time goes on.

  • Have a doodling journal. You can practice on any piece of paper, but I found that it’s more fun to have a separate journal for doodling. That way, you won’t just be able to see your progress, but you’ll have an entire journal full of ideas on what to doodle in your Bullet Journal.
  • Practice every day. I know it might seem like a big commitment, but it doesn’t have to be. Just 5 minutes a day will do well and help you progress.
  • Draw what you like. Doodling should be fun, so just have fun with it and doodle whatever you like.
  • Don’t turn doodling into a chore. Always remember that doodling is something that should bring you joy and help you be creative. If it becomes a chore, it means you’re doing something wrong; take a step back, have a break, and go back to it later.
