...and I didn't back down!
I've been wanting to "doodle" in a productive, meaningful way for a while. But, it's a little intimidating. I bought myself a new book, Doodles Unleashed by Traci Bautista. I liked the bright colors and text when I was wandering around Amazon. I spent Sunday afternoon thumbing through and thinking. Then, I used the book as an excuse to buy some new markers and paper. (Because 48 paper pads on my dresser aren't enough, apparently.)
Using Traci's book for inspiration, I wanted to think about layers and color. So, for tonight's projects I used some waterbrushes. They're a really cool combo of brush and water container all in one that I heard about at an art journaling get together. (I used Niji brushpens that I got on Amazon.) I used them with some Prismacolor nupastels and colored my heart out. I'm thrilled with the way the colors mixed and the pens were super-easy to use. I'm going to layer on some other colors, textures and whathaveyou, but that's for another evening. For now I'm going to eat some of my ma's manicotti. I love raiding my parents' freezer!
