Many many moons ago, I made a post about my March Doodle Challenge. That post was the beginning of something bigger than I could have ever foreseen. The Oodles of Doodles Challenge on Instagram has grown by hundreds of participants each month, and the support and encouragement from everyone is incredible.
I wasn’t sure how it would all play out so I didn’t make any blog posts about recent monthly challenges. But, I think it’s fair to say that Oodles of Doodles is here to stay. So, from now on, at the end of each month, I will be sharing a blog post with the details for the coming month’s doodle challenge. Hopefully, you’ll want to join in even if you aren’t an Instagram addict like myself.
August Doodle Challenge Theme and Rules
This month’s theme is: ‘at sea’.
For 31 days, you will doodle something nautical themed. You can do this in any fashion you like. I draw out a 31-grid spread in my bullet journal and then add the prompts on the same page. If you don’t want to draw out your own grid, I have a 30-day grid available for download in my VIP Resource Library. You can sign up to get access for free here.
Even if you don’t use a bullet journal, you are welcome to join this challenge. Add a spread to your sketchbook, notebook, or just start on a piece of paper.
As for the Rules…
Bum bum bum…
Just kidding. Take a breath. It’s a doodle challenge, not a contest. There are no prizes, except for your own sense of pride, which is pretty awesome if you ask me. The rules are guidelines. They don’t have to be followed. They’re just here to help guide you to complete the challenge while having fun.
- Starting on the 1st of the month, doodle to the corresponding prompt for the day. Do this to the best of your ability. Remember it’s not a contest and no one is judging you.
- Take a picture of your doodle and upload it to Instagram. Hashtag the photo with #oodlesofdoodleschallengeaug. Also, tag me, @the.petite.planner, so I can see your photo and leave you a comment.
- Search the hashtag on Instagram and leave some love for other people who are participating. Supporting others is highly encouraged.
- Complete one doodle a day for the entire month of August. When you’re all done, you’ll have a masterpiece of doodles.
- Scuba Diver
- Sunken Treasure
- Message in a Bottle
- Fishing Boat
- Life Preserver
- Puffer Fish
I hope you enjoy this doodle challenge. Remember to tag me so I can see your doodles and say hi. Do you have any requests for next month’s theme? Leave me a comment below and I’ll try to make it happen.
