Do you Bullet Journal? Do you enjoy doodles or doodling? If you said yes to either one of those questions, then this challenge is perfect for you! The idea of this challenge is to get you experiencing doodling so that you can incorporate doodles into your Bullet Journal or planner. Doodles are a great way to destress and to add a beautiful touch to your notes!

How to Participate: Journal Doodle Challenge

There really isn’t any guide for participation in this challenge except to give each day’s theme a shot. You never know what kind of doodling you like until you’ve tried them! This challenge is a 12-day challenge with 12 different doodle themes. You are not restricted to doodling in your journal, though this is encouraged.

Be creative, don’t restrict yourself to one set of pens—use pencils, pens, gel pens, brush pens, paint, micro-liners, permanent marker—use anything you want!

Day 1: Simple Doodle

Day one is a simple doodle, so keep it simple today. The simple doodle is meant to ease you into doodling. It can be any size or color, but try to stay away from too much detailing or the use of several colors.

Day 2: Fun Doodle

Day two is the fun doodle. Fun is pretty subjective, so doodle something you find fun! Use fun colors, fun pens (see how much fun we’re having!), be crazy, think out of the box. There are NO guides to this doodle, LET LOOSE!

Day 4: Small Doodle

For day four’s doodle, keep it little. This doodle should not take up too much space on your page. Other than size, do whatever you’d like with this doodle! Use any combination of colors, shapes, inspirations, or tools that you want.

  1. I’m excited about this process. It is something that I really need. I’m going to do this, but I don’t know how to upload anything to you. I’m almost 70, and my daughter doesn’t want me to fool around with my laptop. I do get confused; I have been known to order things without intending to. One of those things was a wheelchair! I’ll get my daughter to do this!

    1. Hi, Jackie! You wouldn’t be able to upload anything directly to my website. Usually, people simply share their creations with me on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/pageflutter) or Instagram (@pageflutter). Facebook is probably the safest and easiest place for you to share with me. But you certainly don’t have to post your photos to participate in the challenge! Whether you decide to share your doodles or not, I hope you enjoy your doodle time!
