Line Doodles

While finishing up several different custom orders, I've been spending some time in the evenings doing more sketching. I create original line drawings, paint with watercolor, then print the original line drawings for coloring pages.

Line Doodles
Here are a couple of my latest line creations in ink. I will share updates later, after I add watercolor to the originals.

As for supplies, I like to use Sakura Micron pens (black), and Zig Millenium pens. The both come in a variety of pen tip sizes and are archival and waterproof. For paper, I use Strathmore Mixed Media Paper. It is smooth (good for pens) and will take wet media.

ART Design Doodle

And here is what I have been doing with the ART design that I shared here, a couple of weeks ago. If you haven't downloaded and printed the free design, you can still go copy it to your computer and personalize it how you want! But I want to see what you do with it! Let me know if you blog about it! I want to see how creative you can be!

First I added some line doodles in the background, Then I started adding color. On this one, I am using thin markers. You can use what you are comfortable with!

Be Creative! Have fun!
This will be one that I will work on a little bit at a time, between projects. I will share an update when I finish with this one!

 I am also linking this up to Blue Chair Diaries blog linkup. Hop on over to Alexandra's blog to see what she is up to!

Have a great Sunday and the rest of this week!
