Good Morning, Quilters and Doodlers!
Today we are going to learn how to doodle with circles and lines!
Well, “learn” is a strong word for doodling….We are going to practice doodling– circles and lines are the prompt.
Today, your challenge is to only use circles and lines!
I often find that limiting the elements, makes doodling easier.
Narrowing the options actually increases my creativity. You might find this true as well.
Start with Circles
For this exercise, I used a marker and dot grid paper from Ecoqua.
(NOTE-I like small size (5 x8) of the Ecoqua A5 and the paper quality. The paper pulls out very easily-making it better for loose leaf-and to create stationery-than for a notebook.)
Fill a page with circles. Then embellish with more circles and lines.
How to Doodle Circles and Line Flowers
Decorate the bottom of your stationery with small circles and lines. Try your hand at flowers.

Fill a page with lines and circles.
Reminds me of Tinker Toys!

One stem, many circles for a different flower…
A new spring motif?
Doodle with Half Circles Too!
I tend to gravitate toward flower motifs!
What about YOU?
Fantasy Forest Underbrush?
Mushrooms and trees anyone?
Not sure where I was going with this one!
Try Doodling YOUR Circles and Line Forest!
Once you begin doodling with a limited element palette, see how many different designs you can create.
What themes or common patterns emerge for YOU?
Do YOUR doodles look like something?
Does one of YOUR doodles resemble a quilt motif?
