Free Doodle Border References

free doodle border references for your art journal or sketchbook

Hello artsy friends! Happy Monday! Today I wanted to share a bit of a follow up to my free doodle reference sheet.  It’s full of doodle designs and patterns to use in your art journal, bullet journal, planner, sketchbook, or wherever else you like to doodle, so I thought sharing some great resources for doodle borders would be fitting!

These borders come in handy whenever you want to section something off, but still in an artistic way. So let’s get into it! Draw them yourself in your sketchbook or visit their sources by clicking the images to download the full resolution images to print!

Free Doodle Reference Sheet!

Hi friends! Happy Monday! Today I have a freebie for you! I was asked by a lovely reader on one of my Zentangle for Beginners videos where she could find a reference sheet for various doodles and patterns.  I gave her my advice of what I do, which is to keep a running collection of favorite doodles and patterns in my sketchbook as I learn and discover new ones, but I thought it might be nice to have a little starter reference sheet, so I made one 🙂

The sheet is divided into two sections: stand-alone doodles, and space-filling doodles, to make it easier to find the right doodle you need at the time.  The stand-alone doodles can of course be repeated and turned into a pattern to make them space-filling doodles, and vice-versa, but for the sake for simplicity I’ve divided them up.

The sheet is available as a PDF, sized to fit on standard letter size 8.5×11″ paper, so just print it out and put it in your sketchbook or wherever else it’ll be easy to look at when you need it! Please keep this sheet for personal use only, thank you!
