Any doodlers out there? I’m sometimes guilty of doodling during a meeting, and I know some of my co-workers are too. But did you know that doodling can help you focus? Yep! See there’s nothing wrong with drawing some shapes, outlining letters, or drawing small figures. It helps the mind listen when the hands are busy.

And there’s certainly nothing wrong with doodling on your crafts either, as you can see in the Paper Crafting 101 column in our September issue! In this column, Go-to Gal Laura Williams shows you six different ways to doodle to enhance your design.

Check out two of her techniques below!

On this card, she doodled on the stamped feathers, she doodled a couple of frames, and she used a sentiment stamp that has the look of being filled in/doodled.

So the next time you sit down to craft, challenge yourself to try some doodling! Plus, check out our store to find doodle-type fonts and markers for doodling.
