So, I was ecstatic to discover several months ago that there's a scrapbooking equivalent. Doodling. Like, draw in the margins, color in all the "O"s and "B"s and "P"s style doodling. There are books on this technique! Who knew? So, obviously, I DID buy a book about it (cuz I'm crazy like that, and I need direction for my doodling...yeah...OCD a little, I know). I found myself somewhat stressed about it because I had never before considered making doodling a PART of what I was doing. I've always doodled while I was daydreaming about what I may be doing in the future, or to kill time waiting to do something, or to avoid doing something, or maybe just to stay awake while I'm doing something boring. I've never considered it to be the end product. This sentiment has been echoed by most of the customers I've suggested it to as well. So imagine my surprise when I sat down, and it just started happening. Just like coloring. Just like pulling out the crayons and coloring in that goofy cartoon animal. And when I convince customers to just sit down and try it...they agree. Beautiful, creative, relaxing. Just...doodling.
So yeah, here's some fun with doodling I had tonight...basic, boring-ish patterened paper, made fun!

That's all for tonight :)
