Doodling flowers 

I am regularly asked how I start my doodles so I decided to break down the process into small stages here 

I start with some sort of a circle 

Then I build up the design – breaking the circumference into small repetitive shapes. I use the same ones in lots of different combinations to make different designs 

Flowers petals are usually odd numbers but I don’t let that bother me at this stage 

I go round the circles making the designs more complicated – building up the layers of pattern 

I felt the the two on the left needed more in the middle so I went back to the centres 

Here are two flowers with external petals added 

I never do exactly the same design -but keep added more layers until I fill the page with my design. Here are two flowers similar to the pink and white designs above with extra layers added
