How to Doodle a Cupcake

I like to doodle. A lot.  In my notebooks at work, I’d say it’s 25% writing, 75% doodling.
I’m sure my co-workers could attest to that. LOL.  There’s a few things I doodle a lot…flowers, four leaf clovers, hearts, and sometimes cupcakes as you see in this video!

This is just a fast and fun design! Alter it as you like.  And on a related note, I made cupcakes tonight!  It was William’s birthday.  I made homemade buttercream too. YUM!

Until next time Swellions!

How to make pretty doodled leaves + video tutorial

The gift of doodle

I’ve been doodling a lot lately. Maybe it’s a getting back to basics thing. Not sure, but I’ve been having a lot of fun! Something about doodling and not thinking about it is nice. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just fun and I just have been going with the flow.

Doodle leaves

I was inspired to make these leaves after seeing a journal belonging to my co-worker. I used a cut out leaf stencil (I cut myself) to keep me into a loose leaf shape. Seriously, I tried drawing them without the stencil and they weren’t pretty. I needed the stencil to give me an edge to stop at.

When I first started coloring them in, I just randomly used marker colors from my bin, I didn’t think and I actually ended up using a color combo I wouldn’t normally gravitate too. It’s nice to mix it up.

Here’s a little video I made showing you how to make these. I actually cut off the stems for these leaves, but you can leave them on if you want.

For the top of the box, I added a flower from this doodled flower tutorial I did last week. They’d make a great accent to a gift, scrapbook page, or accessory, don’t you think?

I wanted to share with you a little doodling addiction I have been having as of late! I’ve been obsessed with making these doodled flowers and they are sooooo easy to make. I had so much fun making them in different colors, each with their own flourishes and little details!

Here’s my video showing you how to make these fun flowers!!

And here’s some more photos of my finished product! I’m going to have to make a project with these, I’m just not sure what to make just yet. Suggestions?
