Doodle Journal Pages


Journal With Me Watercolour Doodles

In this blog post, I am going to share a really quick and easy page, that you can create in your own journal. There are also some free printables available, that I will tell you more about at the bottom of this post.



Step 1: I am using a standard size Travelers Notebook from Start Bay Notebooks to create these pages in.

Step 2: Mix up three different colours of watercolour paint, with lots of water. I am using a pink, purple and grey. The paints I am using are from London Gifties.

Step 3: Paint nine rectangles on your page, alternating the colours on each line. I am using an Escoda watercolour brush.


Step 4: You will need to make sure that your paint is thoroughly dry before moving onto the next stage. I used a heat tool for this.

Step 5: Add some floral doodles to each of your rectangles. I used my book Journal With Purpose for reference images. For the doodles, I used both a Staedtler pigment liner and white Uni-ball Signo Gel pen. I first got the idea for watercolour doodles in rectangles after watching CreationsCeeCee on YouTube. She shares some amazing videos.

Step 6: Add a quote on your left-hand page. I used a Brause dip pen and Pilot Iroshizuku ink in tsutsuji colour.


With the decoration and quote added, you should still have plenty of room to add all your journal writing.

Journal Doodle Pages

I have created two free printables to help you on your way:

- Watercolour Rectangles: if you don't have watercolour paints, but would like to add your own doodles, this will be perfect for you

- Watercolour Doodles: a printable containing the completed images shown on my journal pages

The free printables section is password protected. You will receive an email with the password when you subscribe to my blog. The printables are designed to be printed at A5 size.


I also have a video available to watch on YouTube, where you can see me creating these pages.
