As part of the Lil Journal Project: another technique to work on in your journal this week: doodling on photos! A few of these techniques come from my friend Stephanie Corfee’s book: Creative Doodling and Beyond. Like drawing interesting borders:
Try adding photos into your journal and embellishing the photos with borders….even if it’s just a few lines:
Use a white gel pen or a correction pen (White Out) for drawing on dark backgrounds:
Doodle’s are imperfect, scribbly and wobbly…..no mistakes…..so have fun with it to add personality throughout your journal pages or scrapbooks:
Alter your images to be fun and quirky:
I love this doodled collage in Stephanie’s book:
For more doodling exercises, prompts and projects check out Creative Doodling and Beyond:
Cute ideas … I did NOT know that she had a book … It’s going on the Christmas list right now!
Love what you did with the pictures! Such a cute alternative to spending tons of money on scrapbooking stickers and things (:
Also, I own this book. It is so wonderful!
Amazon and it’s 1 click ordering is evil. This book is now mine lol
