{week 36} doodling

I asked twitter for some ideas for this week’s craft as I was lacking in time and inspiration. Felt-queen Laura (aka @bugsandfishes) pointed out that it was National Doodle Day so I needed no excuse to go lo-tech and dig out the pens and paper.

In true doodling style I didn’t concentrate on drawing but instead watched TV whilst idly letting the pen do all the work. The result was this…

Doodles galore

I also doodled on a few post-it notes and with it being Valentine’s weekend (when did Valentine’s day turn into a whole weekend I wonder) I drew some romantic notes and turned one into the quickest card ever (perfect if you’ve just woken up today and realised you’ve forgotten something).

Last minute doodled Valentine's card

You could lots of crafty things with doodles. Apart from turning them into cards you could use them as a basis for an embroidery design, use paints to colour in the shapes, turn them into screens for printing and… what else?
