Hi Everyone! I’m Quynh from @caliquynhletters. Today I will be showing you how I create some fun doodles in my bullet journal using Washi Tape. Making time to be creative is a great way to relax and experiment with different types of art supplies. Journaling is a form of Self Care. Carving time out for yourself allows you to feel refreshed, and provides additional energy for you to care for those around you.

Washi tape is a type of adhesive tape that is made out of paper and comes a bunch of different colors and patterns. Using washi tape is a great way to decorate gifts, seal envelopes and to add flare to your Bullet Journal.
In this tutorial, I will show you how to convert a simple piece of tape into a whimsical doodle of a girl wearing a decorative headband..
Step 1: Pick out a roll of washi tape in a pattern or color that you love. Cut about a 1.5 inch piece and place in the center of your notebook page.
Step 2: Using a fine tip drawing pen, add hair in a sock bun shape above the washi tape.
Step 3: Draw face shape below the tape.
Step 4: Add side bangs and earrings.
Step 5: Add lashes, and other facial features with minimal detail. Add a neck.
Step 6: Used a brush pen, add a fun quote or title above your drawing.
Step 7: Take a nice flat lay in an area with nice natural daylight. Use washi tape, pens and scissors as props.
