I am inspired by so many things, I decided that every Friday, I will highlight a favorite person, thing, or idea. Maybe you will be inspired too! See all past Friday Favorites here.
Update: Giveaway has been closed and winner has been selected. Thanks everyone!
By now, you know I love doodles, right? To me, doodles are art (and deceptively hard to do well). Which is why I'm excited to share a new book with you, Art Doodle Love: A Journal of Self Discovery by Dawn Devries Sokol. Part journal, part scrap book, part sketch book, this book is filled with pages that have been altered in some way right out of the gate. (I actually received this book in the mail shortly after I did this altered book project, very timely). But not altered in a way that you aren't able to grab your doodle pen and make these pages your own.
So now that there's no fear of the dreaded blank white page, what to doodle in this book? There are prompts and pages throughout the book to get you going on a creative journal, one that's all about yourself. Perfect for those of us who like to doodle in the margins of the pages and right random notes and thoughts, the pages are meant to be completely filled in with your whims, thoughts, and doodles. What you'll be left with is a creative book all about you, and likely you will have made some interesting discoveries along the way. And it's a book for doodlers of all ages, I know a 14 year old here who likes it already.
I am giving away a copy of Art Doodle Love to one commenter (US only please). Just leave a comment on this post to be entered into the giveaway, a winner will be randomly chosen on Sunday evening.
