Ah, summer – a time when our hearts yearn for adventure, and our Bullet Journals crave a splash of color and fun. That’s exactly what we’re here for today! I’m about to guide you through an exciting journey of creating summer doodles to draw that will make your Bullet Journal pages the envy of every planner on the block.

Remember that summer when you tried to learn surfing or the taste of that perfect mango smoothie on a scorching day? We’re about to bottle up all those memories and more into adorable, easy-to-draw doodles. Whether you’re lounging by the pool, sipping on a cool drink, or just dreaming of sandy beaches from the comfort of your air-conditioned room, these doodles are your ticket to a summer vibe that lasts all year round.

So, sharpen those pencils, or perhaps pick your favorite pen because we’re about to turn your Bullet Journal into the ultimate summer scrapbook. Let’s get those pages ready for a season of joy encapsulated in whimsical summer doodles that even the sun would pause to admire.


Doodling is the unsung hero of creative expression in our Bullet Journals! And if you’re sitting there thinking, “I couldn’t draw a straight line if my life depended on it,” you’re exactly where I was before I discovered the magic of doodles.

Here’s the secret sauce: doodling isn’t about creating a masterpiece worthy of a museum; it’s about letting your pen dance across the page, bringing joy and personality to your Bullet Journal. Believe it or not, drawing is a skill just like any other, and yes, that means everyone – including you – can master it with a bit of practice.

And what better way to sharpen those skills than following tutorials? I went from doodle-dread to doodle-head, and now I’m here, eager to guide you through your own journey of discovery.

Doodling Supplies

Of course, if you sit down to doodle, you’ll need some supplies, and if you need any recommendations, I’ve got you covered.

Here are some of my favorite doodling supplies:

  • A notepad or a journal. First, you need good paper, especially if you’ll be using your brush pens for coloring. You could definitely use this Rhodia notepad that has amazing paper. Personally, I prefer to have a separate notebook or pad for doodling.
  • A pencil is a must-have for doodling, I think. It will help you so much to avoid mistakes and take your time refining your doodles. My go-to is Pilot Dr. Grip Mechanical Pencil which is probably the most comfortable pencil.
  • Fineliners. I also love using fine liners for doodling – they create such vivid black lines! My favorites are Sakura Pigma Microns.
  • Markers. Something to add color! I could talk about these forever, but my favorites are probably Zebra Mildliners and Tombow Twin Tone.

Be sure to check the end of the post for some more recommendations. I definitely have tons more ideas for you. But let’s dive in and start doodling!

11 Summer Doodles To Draw In Your Bullet Journal

These tutorials are easy to draw, and even a beginner can follow them and end up having a beautiful doodle in their hands.

The secret here is to see all the doodles as basic shapes! Once you learn how to see any item as a set of basic shapes, there will be no stopping for you; you’ll be able to doodle anything.

Now, let’s look at these tutorials.

How To Doodle A Seashell

Summer is all about the beach to me, even if I don’t get to be by the beach. This doodle will bring beach at least to your Bullet Journal pages.

And if you look at this little tutorial, you’ll easily see that beautiful seashells are pretty easy to draw. Plus, you get to play around with the colors so much!

How To Doodle A Camera

I don’t know if you agree, but for me, cameras are all about Summer. Don’t you just want to go out every time there is a hot sunny summer day and take some pictures?

Cameras are easy to doodle; as you can see, there are just a few circles and rectangles. And they will be a lovely addition to your travel pages as well!

How To Doodle A Sun Umbrella

Summer is all about the sun, and what sunny day goes without a sun umbrella? I know I can’t deal without it since I burn like a vampire every time the sun is out.

A few curved lines and you’ve got yourself a cute umbrella beaming with colors.

How To Doodle A Toucan

Anything tropical counts as a Summer doodle in my book! Wouldn’t you agree? I can’t imagine a tucan in any atmosphere other than hot Summer days.

It seems like a complicated doodle, but in fact, it’s only an oval and a few triangles; you just need to soften the shapes to make it look more like a toucan.

How To Doodle Starfish

Starfish is a classic beach-themed doodle, and it’s also pretty easy to draw! All you need to do is draw a star and round the corners.

Add a few circles inside the doodle, and you will have a starfish drawing for yourself.

How To Doodle A Lemon

What is Sumemr without a glass of cold lemonade? And lemons can be a great theme idea for an entire month!

As you can see, it’s a very simple thing to draw, a few circles and triangles, and you’ve got yourself a juicy lemon.

How To Doodle A Tropical Flower

I think flowers have a place on any page of your Bullet Journal and at any season. But if you want something more summer-themed, you can’t go wrong with tropical flowers.

This is my go-to tropical flower doodle, and because you get two colors on each petal, it makes the doodle look more elaborate than it actually is.

How To Doodle A Beach Bag

Whether you are going to the beach or just doing some shopping, a beach bag is always there to help you in the Summer.

This is a sinle doodle, as you can see it’s just a few lines and a rectangle. What I love about it the most is how you can play around with the colors and patterns decorating the bag!

How To Doodle Flip Flops

Summer is the perfect time to let your feet breathe and wear some flip-flops. They are convenient and so easy to slip on and off.

You can play around with the designs on top of your flip-flops and make them fit any aesthetic and color scheme you have going on on your Bullet Journal page.

How To Doodle A Pineapple

Even though I now enjoy pineapples all around Portugal, they’re usually just a Summer treat. And pineapples can be such a fun Summer Bullet Journal theme idea!

There are many ways to doodle a pineapple, but this is how I prefer to do it, making it a bit more cartoony and cute.

How To Doodle An Ice Cream

You can eat ice cream all year around, but it’s never as delicious as it is on a hot Summer day.

And it’s probably the easiest doodle to draw! A rectangle and a few extra lines will give you a delicious treat.

And here you go; here are your 11 Summer doodle tutorials to bring tropical vibes and bright colors to your Bullet Journal pages.
