Hello Planning Mashers!
As you know, here we’re all about developing creativity and learning new skills.
Today I want to share with you one more cool resource I found to do it. Spoiler alert – I loved it so much that I created a separate doodling course for them myself.
More on that later.
But I find that it’s fun to explore all the possible sources.
You might enjoy my style (and thank you for that!), but if you try learning from others, you might be able to learn some different styles and approaches.
Altogether, this will help you have a wider understanding of the subject and build your unique style, be it in lettering or doodling.
So if you’re ready to challenge yourself to learn about lettering, doodling, drawing, using watercolor, and other creative subjects – I have one more place to check out…
(I also secured a special offer just for you, so be sure to scroll until the end to check it out)

What Is Foxsy
I love what she does, and she was one of my biggest inspirations when I started my Bullet Journal.
As a creative person with a Bullet Journal, I imagine Shelby wanted to help others develop their creativity, and that’s where Foxsy comes into play.
Foxsy is a learning platform that provides courses concentrated around that concept – developing your creativity in different ways.
It launched in 2022 with a few courses, and they have been adding more and more as time goes on.
I love this platform, especially because it was created for people like you and me, and it feels like in every class.
Being A Foxsy Student
We were all artistic when we were kids. I remember playing with crayons and clay. And if you don’t remember it – just ask your mom. I’m sure she will remember those pesky marker stains, haha
But what happened now that we have grown up? We now have all those chances we didn’t have as kids, so why aren’t we working on creative skills?
Society convinced us that spending time on ourselves and creating things is impossible, childish, and selfish.
Add to this that starting something new as an adult and being bad at it at the beginning is much harder than when you were a kid. And you get a solid wall we all bump into it.
With resources like Foxsy, we can commit to breaking that wall and releasing that inner creative child to play and explore.
This was the big idea behind Foxsy – to provide the space to experiment, learn, grow, and see where your artistic path takes you.
And you can feel in every course how much love and thought and care was put into it.
Plus, you get some amazing perks:
- Q&A function in classes so you can easily ask questions and get answers from fellow students and professionals.
- Personalized Feedback
- Students can follow along with a class project and submit a photo of it to receive personalized feedback from a Foxsy creative pro. You’ll get support and suggestions to help you grow on your creative journey.
- Closed Captions
- Each class features human-reviewed closed captioning.
What Is Inside Foxsy
I have used a lot of general terms up to now, but let’s talk a little about the exact classes you can find inside the platform.
Shelby is amazing in all things art, drawing, lettering watercolor. So these are some classes she teaches there.
But here is the best part, she also invites different creators to make courses for the platform about the things they are great at.
For example, my doodling course, but again, more about it later.
At the moment that I’m writing this post, Foxsy already has classes about:
But as I mentioned before, more topics and courses are added all the time, so be sure to check the platform for yourself to see if it has something you’ll love.
Meanwhile, here are a few of my favorite classes I think you’ll enjoy.
Crayola Brush Lettering For Beginners: How To Create Fancy Lettering With A Cheap Marker
Crayola markers are some of the best on the market, especially for beginners.
They come in many colors and are very affordable.
Plus, you can use them as markers, highlighters, and brush pens!
Yup, you heard me correctly; you can do brush lettering with Crayola Super Tips.
But – it requires a bit of different training, and this is where this course comes into play.
It will teach you the basic techniques to create beautiful brush lettering with your Crayolas.
Plus, you’ll create two special projects right away.
Paint The Page: Dive Into Watercolor Journaling With Confidence
Have you ever wanted to use watercolor in your Bullet Journal?
I did, but once I tried, I realized you couldn’t just jump into it; you need some direction. And that’s why I love this course.
You need to know many tricks and techniques to use watercolor in your Bullet Journal.
This course covers them all.
You’ll learn which watercolors to use, how to pick the correct journal, and tips and tricks to make watercolors work for you.
You’ll be able to start using these techniques right away since the course has 3 paint along watercolor projects.
Shelby is amazing at using watercolor in her journal, and I also loved learning how to start incorporating watercolor into my journal.
Heat Embossing Essentials: Add Shimmer And Shine To Your Work
Have you ever tried heat embossing?
I’ve never done it, but after this course, I’m itching to try!
In 40+ minutes of this mini-course, I learned everything I needed.
What tools to use, how to use them, and different tips and tricks to get the best result.
I’m so pumped to give it a try.
Monochrome Watercolor Painting: Master Value And Tone With One Color
If you are into more artistic things, there is something for you.
There are a lot of drawing and painting classes, but I found this one is probably my favorite.
This is a course by a guest teacher Miranda from MirandaBalogh, and I fell in love with it.
The idea of playing with the density of one color to create an art piece was so intriguing, and I loved the final result it produced.
Well, at least her final result; mine still needs some work.
Miranda goes into detail to explain all the pain and color concepts and makes it pretty easy to understand the basics of monochromatic paintings.
It’s easy to understand and very well-paced. Even as a complete beginner, I had no trouble following her instructions.
Floral Doodles: A Beginner’s Guide To Drawing Flowers
Finally, let’s talk about a doodling course I’ve created for Foxsy.
Flowers are some of the most popular drawings, and I wanted to create a course that would help anyone to start doodling them.
Because anyone can doodle them, you just need to learn a few tips and tricks, and in this course, you will!
Plus, we’ll do two projects that will be perfect for decorating your Bullet Journal or maybe just creating a homemade holiday card.
This is what Foxsy is, so many excellent courses on all creative topics and growing all the time.
