Doodling with Petra




Hi, I popped over to Gingersnaps today and saw Petra's examples of getting started with doodling, well they looked terrific and she showed us how easy it was to doodle into a stamp. Well Petra made it look easy, so thought yipee will have a go at that........well you really do NOT want to see how badly I did, a child of three could have done better and am not kidding. I could blame it on the stamp I used but no its me, just cannot draw within the lines........ So had to try another way to get over this prob and try it free hand.



You would never believe that this started as just one flower, sort of got carried away after my previous disasters, which are now in the rubbish bin. Quite a few of you doodle and I would love to take part in a doodling party, so if anyone knows where one is being held please let me know, am ready with pens, a bottle of wine and will travel anywhere in blogland.

Thank you for looking and reading my rubbish and thank you Petra for giving us such a great tutorial. Have a lovely evening and take care, from a rubbish wobble doodler, Annette x
