Bookmarks R Fun!


I have no idea what a bookmark and a pumpkin have in common except when I went outside to take this picture I thought they looked kinda cute together.  Working on my alpha-doodling and came up with this little pudgy lettering.  


You can see it a little better in this shot.  Not being one to do ANYTHING without adding a little color, off I went with my rainbow pneumonic of ROY G BIV.  For those of you new to this it’s  Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo (purple), Violet (pink).
Had my doodle directory prints out for ideas, because I was going to need them on this next step.


The great thing about doing a background in just ONE color is…..you don’t have to think too much.  You can just go with wherever the design takes you.  No worries about shading/ highlighting, outfits for the birdies, “does the drawing look like the picture?”….you know…that kind of stuff!  


This type of doodling is just sheer DELIGHT!!!  Really!  Give it a try if you haven’t already.

You’ve got one more day to submit your own CUSTOMIZED bookmark for the Bookmark Contest at D'blogala.  Deadline is Friday 10/15.

I like the color on B & W and the plump letters you used on this one, Eden.

Thank you for the ROY G BIV mnemonic. I always have to look that up. I got stick on I - couldn't think of a color that I could stand for - so I'm glad you got real explicit for the less bright among your readers ;-)

Awesome bookmark, Eden. This would inspire me to open a book, knowing it held this colorful bookmark inside of its pages! What fun letters you've created here.

It's not often that I see a new type of lettering that really stands out from others... but this does!!! It's awesome (as is the entire bookmark of course :)

About Me

My photo
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!
