Good Morning, Quilters and Doodlers!
Today we are going to doodle simple clover leaves to add to The White Clover motif we learned this week.
I LOVE everything about white clover. They remind me of summer days and I adore the sweet, fresh scent. Apparently–YOU love White Clover too! This pretty posy received thousands of views. Thank you to all who shared on Pinterest! It’s a huge help when you hit the “Share of Facebook or Pinterest” link below each post!)
A Great Sketch/Doodle Notebook
Several readers have asked what sketchbook I recommend. I have many doodle notebooks I love! One of my favorites- is the Canson Mixed Media 7 x 10 inch notebook.
I like it because it is a nice size–not too big and not too small. In addition, the paper is heavy enough to allow light watercolor paint. I often doodle with Inktense watercolor pencils. A light touch of water elevates doodles into mini designs.
How to Doodle Simple Clover Leaves
Use watercolor pencils or your favorite pen to doodle simple rounded leaves. I added two types of leaves to the White Clover motif.
The first is a cluster of three rounded petals. Begin with a large center petal then add a petal on each side.
Add a simple rounded leaf, by stitching (or doodling) a straight line, then stitch back over it, and add a rounded leaf around the overstitched line.
Make Your Own Postcards
Cut heavy weight paper into postcard size sheets. Add a simple border then practice the White Clover and leaves on the notecards.
Who wouldn’t want to receive a handwritten note on a hand painted card?!!
Be sure to tune in tomorrow when I have a HUGE announcement!
Hint: Book 3 is coming SOON!
