One week until St. Patrick's Day! Here's a little doodle trick I learned five or six years ago.
|A Celtic Doodle|
Step 1: Using pencil, lightly sketch a small triangle.
Step 2: Extend each side of your triangle with a curved line.
Step 3: Draw a longer line parallel to each line from step 2. Turn your paper before drawing each line.
Step 4: Connect the inside lines (green).
Step 5: Connect the outside lines (orange).
That's it! Remember to doodle lightly in pencil before tracing over in pen. Do a few, then try varying the widths of your “ribbons” and the length of the lines.
