This is my final Doodle Day July prompt. Thanks to Alison Hertz for letting me have some fun sharing my ideas. This one is fun and easy. I often play this game with children, and they love it. All you have to do is have someone scribble on a piece of paper or close your eyes and do your own scribbles. Then look at the scribble from every direction to see what it inspires. In my following examples the original scribble is in red and my doodle is in black. My husband did some of the scribbles and I did some with my eyes closed. As you will see, I did not spend a lot of time on these doodles. I find scribble doodles to be an excellent way to let go of my inner judge and perfectionist. There is only rule for this prompt – keep it simple, fun and quick.

Happy doodling!

I am posting another doodle prompt for Alison Hertz’s Doodle Day July.

Today’s prompt is from a workshop I took many years ago. The workshop was based on the book “Praying in Color: Drawing a New Path to God” by Sybil MacBeth. I must admit that I have not read the book. I have chosen to title this doodle prompt “Wishing in Color” so that it fits all people regardless of their religious beliefs.

As with all doodling, this method is a way to quiet the body and still the mind. It is a simple process. All you have to do is focus on what you wish for and doodle. In the examples below, I mostly doodled with wishes for loved ones. The doodle with the word “home” was my wish for all our troops to return home unharmed. Some portions on the doodles examples have been covered because I didn’t want to publicize full names.

I hope this doodling process brings you the connection and peace that I found as I doodle-wished for my loved ones.
