Spring! Is it warm where you are yet? The warmer, the better. Bring on Summer!

Reminders

These color schemes are suggestions. Experiment. Come up with your own. Fall back on mine if you’re out of inspiration. Change them up a bit if you want. I’ve listed colors in order from “use this the most” to “use this as an accent” from top to bottom. Have fun!

Feedback

I want to know what’s working for you and what isn’t with the coloring book calendar as well as the color schemes. Is the book size practical? Are the calendar day blocks big enough? Is there anything missing you wish were there? Are the color scheme suggestions working for you? Comment below with your thoughts so I can make the next one better.

It’s almost March! Holy cow, where is the time going? I need a few more days in every month.

Reminders

If you’ve been following my color schemes for the last few months, you’re probably getting into the groove. Here are some brief reminders so I don’t overload you with the same details every month.

Have you found peace in coloring this month? I have. And I’ve certainly needed it. Sheesh.

Below are my color schemes suggestions for the February doodles in my 2017 Weekly Planner Doodle Art Coloring Book (available on Amazon for $9.50). If your colors are more limited than my palette, try blending pencils or simplifying the colors to basics—lavendar becomes purple, burgundy becomes red, etc. The resulting color scheme won’t always be as appealing, but experiment! These aren’t rules. They’re inspiration. ^____^

New! I started listing the colors from “use this the most” to “use this as just an accent” from top to bottom. Again, suggestion. Free your mind. Do your thang. Share it with me. I mean us. Please.

I’ve been using my calendar as a journal. How about you? What are you using yours for?

I call this one “Visitors” because I had house guests when I created it, but also because the end product reminded me a bit of a giant beanstalk with some sort of alien growth. ~____^

The video is a combination of time lapse and real time. At the beginning of each new section, watch in real time to get a feel for the movement. Then enjoy the remainder in time lapse.

 

Do you love visitors as much as I do?!?! The more, the merrier.

And… dah dah dah! The final doodle art drawing that I’m calling Giggly. …which is so unlike me.

And since you all only ever see me draw in super speed, I thought I’d share a piece in real time. Yeah… it’s slow. My point? Don’t rush when you’re doodling. The point is to relax, slow down (in life, not just doodling) and chill. Just. Slow. Down.

You should also know I was holding my phone camera for this one and actually drawing through my view on the phone. Don’t judge me.

Let’s create this Soil and Stars doodle art.

3. Use the Box Fill pattern between the curved lines.

4. Below the curve, use Psycho Lines. Watch the tutorial here:

 

5. Add Peacock Plants to the top of the curve.

6. Draw an odd number of stars in the sky. Watch me draw stars here:

(Note: An odd number of items is typically more visually appealing than an even number of items.)
