How to Doodle: Sea Life


Sea Life Journal Pages

Today I have a fun blog post to share with you, which is a series of doodles to help you get creating lovely sea life themed pages in your journal.


I love picking different themes to decorate my journal pages, so I hope you enjoy this step by step for creating some fun sea life doodles.


How to Doodle Shells

Shells are great shapes to doodle, with lots of curved but simple lines. You can pick a wide range of different colour themes to really bring your doodles to life.


How to Doodle Seaweed

Seaweed is another fun addition to use in your journal. Sometimes I add a whole border of different coloured seaweed strands in greens, blues and purples.


How to Doodle Fish

Fish can look quite tricky to doodle, but really there are just a few simple shapes to master. You can then change the shape of the fins and tail to give each of them a different character.


Sea Life Journal Pages

In a recent journal cover page, I used a fish, some seaweed and a shell doodle to create my bullet journal cover page. You can play around with all of the designs to come up with a completely unique page.


How to Doodle a Seahorse

I'm not sure there is anything much more adorable than a seahorse! At the top of this blog post, I used a seahorse doodle to create a Dutch Door in my bullet journal. Don't forget to add a nice round tummy!


How to Doodle a Whale

The final doodle I'm sharing with you is of this cute whale, who is just full of character. It's sure to make a fun addition to any of journal pages.


I have added a free download of all these doodles, so that you can print it off and have a go. You could even trace them if you prefer. You can find the printable here and you will need the password you received when you subscribed to my blog to access the downloads.



If you are looking for more doodle inspiration, I would love it if you checked out my book which you can find here.


If you decide to recreate any of these designs, I would love you to share them with me over on Instagram. Just tag me in the photo so that I can see and share your pages.


I really hope you enjoyed this blog post and I will be back with more journaling and doodle ideas very soon.


I'm thinking of sharing some cosy Autumn/fall images in September. Let me know what you think.


In the meantime, I hope you have a lovely weekend.
