What is the Best Way to Doodle? Open Line Friday


Boogie Board

Good Morning, Quilters!

What is the best way to doodle? My favorite way to doodle is on paper…any paper.

I doodle in sketchbooks, on newspapers, on envelopes. Any paper that dares get near my pen–watch out!

But…recently, I found a new way to doodle–a Boogie Board!

The Boogie Board is described as Liquid Crystal Paper.  Doodling is easy and everything erases with a click of the button.  The Boogie Board is not new, but the “blackboard” size is a recent addition to the line.  There are a variety of sizes including several designed for children that look great for learning penmanship or math facts.  The prices range from $12 to $45.

What I like most about the Boogie Board is how the pen and writing surface feel–they feel very natural. The liquid crystal paper has a nice “tooth”– it is not too slippery.

We’ve been practicing our Tree Doodles HERE and HERE

This would be a great way to practice any motif and quickly erase, without the need to waste paper.

The Boogie Board can be placed right over your quilt to audition motifs.

If you draw something you want to save…you have to take a photo of it.  There is a cell phone app to store and organize your doodles, but I haven’t tried it yet.

The Boogie Board has an eraser feature to erase part of a drawing.  In my opinion, it doesn’t work that well.

Quilt Applications:  This method is really best for practice doodles and to audition motifs.
