Everyone can doodle! Make your own patterns, and you get to decide how they look. TIPS: Start by dividing the area into different fields, then decorate each one with little curlicues, rings, dashes, dots and so forth. BOARD: We traced letters on a canvas board, divided each letter into different fields and then filled them in with various doodling patterns. Tip! Sketch on a piece of paper first to see how big you want the letters to be. BOX AND &-SIGN: Split into fields and doodle different patterns.
