I like this technique of doodling. I’m sure other people have already thought of it, but I found it out myself one day and liked it. I decided to show you how to doodle it so you could have fun with it too. Here we go!
First, make any shape you like (it doesn’t have to be a heart).
Next, start drawing columns within the borders of your shape.
Don’t draw the columns over top of each other, just let the go under each other.
It looks neat to make the columns different sizes too.
Now for the coloring part! (Yaay!) I just chose three main colors, but you can choose more if you like – try it with rainbow colors! You can also use different shades of each color, especially if you don’t have very many colors.
I left the background behind the columns white so the columns would stand out a little more.
Ta-daa! Can you tell why I called it “heartstrings”?
There you go! Have fun with it, customize it, change it how you like. This technique would be good for cards, bookmarks, etc.
Hope you enjoy!
