Good Morning, Quilters!
If you’ve been a follower for any period of time, you may know that I LOVE to doodle!
I will doodle on anything–from my newspaper to my husband’s important mail (oops! only once…
BEST DOODLE PAPER
There are a lot of papers that are great for doodling, but I notice that some paper “feels” better than other paper. (Maybe this is because I’m a quilter–and of course, we love to pet our fabric while we are looking at it!) For example, I love the “tooth” of newspaper and the smooth surface of copy paper, but I don’t like the feel of cheap notebook paper.
I love the feel of book paper and love the look of doodles over text–check out this Pinterest page for inspiration!
As I was going through some old books, I created a stack that are just not worth reading…
But…all that lovely paper….
I tried my hand at a little collage to spruce up the book and make it my own. I inherited my Mom’s stamp collection and had fun choosing a few for my collage. I added a few watercolor cutouts and magazine photos.
I used PVA glue (great for bookbinding too) to adhere the cutouts and for a top coat.
Now comes the fun part–Doodling!
What about YOU?
Do YOU have a favorite paper or journal for doodling?
Have YOU ever re-purposed an old book?
Have YOU ever tried collage?
Do YOU save magazine photos for some unknown purpose?
We’d LOVE to hear!
Your Doodlin’ Seamstress,
