This book by Dawn deVries Sokul may just be the best $12.00 I've ever spent. I met my goal - do something for every day - doodle, collage, lettering . Is every one a masterpiece? Hardly. Some were so bad I had to totally cover the mess and start over, others rated only a "meh", and a few that turned out better than expected. I stretched my doodling skills, and realized I need lots more work on lettering.
The binding on this book is nothing short of amazing:
My Year of the Doodle is on the right and started out the same size as Art Doodle Love. I have collaged, painted, added button edges and generally stressed the binding which is still holding together despite unspeakable odds.
This over-stuffed book makes me happy whenever I look at its wavy pages, tabs, threads and buttons.
A few last pages to share:
This is an amazing mandala stamp. The stamp has straight edges, so I continued the design to soften the edges.
I love using old envelopes.
I've been decluttering my stamp stash and found this cute house stamp I'd forgotten I had.
This was fun - I used a little green tomato to stamp these apples.
The festive birds were salvaged from a card stamped by my friend, Shiela.
Background is from Doodle in French by Anna Corbin - drew on the dress form and added fabric stickers and some rub-ons. Audrey is the crowning touch!
I'll miss my daily challenge , but luckily I have a brandie-new, pristine Art Doodle Love to start.
