I came across this blog from Sue Doodles. Isn't she so creative? I love the way she doodles. Being one that was fresh out of ideas but oh so willing to "do something" I was inspired to try my own set of Alphabet doodles. I use really good pens when I can. I have fallen in love with the 0.05 Black Micron pen. It allows me to outline real fine and it doesn't bleed into the paper.
I've uploaded the letters I have so far into Flickr. I've been doodling during my
break at work. I carry my son's old blue pencil case and a clipboard and doodle
for 30 minutes. I found some art paper at Hobby Lobby, but it's not as good as
the paper I bought from the Art Store. The down side of the art store paper is it comes in 24x36 and I have to cut it down to 8x10. The Hobby Lobby paper is already precut. I've noticed that the colors are better with the art store paper. This paper is much more forgiving to erasing pencil marks. The Hobby Lobby paper likes to take up the ink more. It has a bit of a tendency to bleed and absorb the colors and if I've erased, it grips the ink even more.
Ah well, at least I'm staying out of trouble! And having some fun at it too!!

- By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
