Today we start our new series on doodling. The question is…Can you teach someone to doodle? We are going to find out!
There are several reasons to learn to doodle, but we are doodling to become better free motion quilters! So this is not just a trivial pursuit. We have lofty goals!
Last week, we bought a lined notebook, an unlined notebook or sketchpad and a ream of inexpensive typing paper. (Of course, none of that is absolutely necessary…many of you left suggestions for other sources of paper…read the comment section of this post.)
I also suggested that you search out a variety of markers, pencils and pens to try.
Did you find any favorites? Any markers or pens you don’t like? There are three things I look for in a pen when I’m doodling:
You’ll need lots of pens for different looks, feels, moods, effects…
Today, try some of your pens on the lined paper.
One of the best ways to improve creativity is to impose limits…
This week, your assignment is to fill as many pages as possible with one shape: Scribbled Circles.
Work fast and don’t think!
Limit yourself to messy Scribbled Circles–it’s both limiting and freeing…
Let me know how it’s going.

It really feels like Spring here in Minnesota! Yesterday the temperatures soared to 60 degrees and it may reach 70!
It’s Easter week, so we’ll be baking and cooking…
Easter wouldn’t be Easter without Peeps!
Did you know that more than 700 million Peeps are bought each Easter?!
I thought you might like this short video on Peeps
I really don’t like Peeps until they are good and stale–I like how they get chewier…
What about YOU?
What’s Your favorite Easter candy…Peeps…Jelly Beans…Chocolate Bunnies?
We’d love to hear!
PS…Don’t forget to find a notebook and some pens…tomorrow we begin our Doodle Lessons. Read more HERE.
