Not only do dandelions look cute but they also represent quite a few things which make it a great addition to lots of your Bullet Journal or art pages.

Here are a few of my favorite dandelion meanings and symbolisms.

  • Travel and adventure. Because the seeds of the dandelion travel fair and wide on the breeze they make a great travel journal doodle. 
  • Rising above challenges and difficulties. Dandelions can grow nearly anywhere and often in really difficult conditions. If you are going through challenges in your life a dandelion doodle would be a great symbol to add to your bullet journal vision board  to remind yourself that you will rise above them. 
  • Wishes Fulfilled. We all know that blowing a dandelion seeds means you get to make a wish. I love adding a dandelion drawing on my goals pages. 
  • Happiness. With their bright color before seeding and warm weather growing, dandelions symbolize happiness and joy.  They make a great theme for spring and summer spreads.

So all you need to do next is add a seed doodle at the end of your dandelions drawing.  

I ended up adding more shape as it looked a little bare and I wanted a fluffy drawing of dandelion.

I also added a few seeds blowing in the breeze for movement and interest.
