Baby doodles have been a popular pastime for a long time, dating back to the time when people used paper and ink to make beautiful drawings of their most beloved cartoon characters. Today, computer software has made it possible to create beautiful baby doodles using several different styles of drawing paper and different colored pens. In fact, you can doodle almost anything using a computer, including animals, cars, planets, people, and more. Here are some tips on how to get started with baby doodling.
Download a free baby doodle template. You can find these online by searching "baby doodle" on your favorite search engine. A lot of sites offer these templates free of charge, but be careful about which one you choose. Some websites require you to download a small amount of software, whereas others only require you to enter your baby's gender and some other basic personal information. Be careful that you're getting a template from a reputable source.
If you've got an infant, a toddler, or even a baby-renter, you may already have a lot of baby doodles on hand. These doodles may be from when your baby was still in the womb, or they may be from the shower, birthday party, or even Christmas card you sent to your baby a few months ago. Do you have many pictures of your baby in various stages of life? You could scan them into your computer's photo gallery and choose to do a printout on canvas. This way, you can show off your baby's artwork, especially if it's nice enough that you'll put it on your living room wall.
Choose your paper. Most modern computers have preloaded paper designs for baby doodles, but if you don't have one, look for photos on Flickr and print them out (with your baby's blessing). Then cut the paper to the size of your baby's head and draw or color in your baby doodle on top of the drawn-out design. To make it easier, you can also take a picture of your baby and resize it so it'll be easier to transfer the image onto paper. You can also use two different images of your baby as the basis for your baby doodle, and then change or add anything else that strikes your fancy.
After you have finished your baby doodle, you may want to frame it so that you can show off to friends and family. Simply laminate the paper and frame it with card stock, then add a personalized piece of handmade art (such as baby booties or bottle openers) so you can give it as a gift. Alternatively, you can use a preprinted frame and decorate it as you like. The important thing is that you did it!
For more permanent results, try using a peel and stick artwork transfer system for your baby doodle. This type of kit comes with paper, scissors, paints, brushes and everything you need to turn your baby's artwork into a masterpiece that will last long after your child is born. The best kits allow you to choose your own colors and accents, and you can even choose different art shapes and objects for your doodle. Kits range from very simple to whimsical, from animals to cars, and from floral to geo-cursive, and you're sure to find something that will make your baby's nursery look fantastic.
Some moms turn their baby's head into works of art by drawing funny faces and weird animations onto the back of her head. Others draw entire scenes from memory. Whichever method you choose, remember to let your baby's imagination run wild. And, of course, don't forget to photograph the results if you're feeling up to the challenge!
You can also try to create a baby doodle on your own using pictures from magazines or the internet. If you have access to a scanner, you might want to print out as many pictures as you can, then scan them into your computer. Make sure you get a high-quality scanner (ideally a digital one) that has an option to post these pictures online for others to view. Then, take a few of your favorite baby doodles and paste them onto pieces of cardstock or other flat material, and you'll have a cute collage you can keep as a permanent keepsake of your baby's cute artistry.
