Doodlie Doo

Time for a new challenge at Less Is More.

I must say that for some reason, this one threw me. Like so many, I have doodled my way through many a business or faculty meeting. I find it relaxing. But doodling on a DT card just scared me a little. So I went with the safety doodle above. Yep, my big doodle creation was a string for Christmas Lights. The rest of the card was perfectly die cut and stamped. Done. I used  Paper Smooches Holiday Lights Dies, and Joyful Greetings Stamps. I was not completely happy with my doodled light string because my hand shook a little, but doodle I did.


I was commenting on Challenge entries, and I came upon THIS post by Billie A. She made these wonderful cards and entered them at Time Out. I was intrigued with the technique she used. Billie referenced Creations Cee Cee. I went to You Tube and looked her up. Guess what?? Cee Cee is a major doodler!!! She is also an incredible watercolor artist. So I watched THIS video and followed along to create my own CASEd design using many of her tips and details. The final result was the card above. I LOVE this doodle thing. I can see many more doodles in my future! Thanks Billie, and thank you Cee Cee. I will be watching and learning more soon!

Please head over to the Less Is More Blog and see what the Design Team has created for your inspiration. I hope you'll play along with us to share your creations and for a chance to win. Remember to keep your design Clean And Simple.

Stephanie, as I am NOT a doodler, I am in complete awe of your doodling skills... the string of lights would be completely like this if they ever came out of storage!
Your floral doodle is AMAZING! and I might just have to watch the video! LOve that loose, puddled, water color look... xx
