Fun and Easy Doodle Art Ideas – Doodling Over Paper Shapes

This is a quick, easy and fun doodling exercise to try. Tear or cut out some coloured paper shapes and glue them on a sheet of white paper. Turn the paper round and see if the shapes remind you of anything.

Doodle over the top of the shapes with a black marker. I sometimes start with a continuous line drawing and then add to it, but you can work in any way you like.

If you are not sure what a continuous line drawing is, check out one of our previous videos

Tools Used

+ Coloured paper similar to this

+ Sharpie marker
