New Collage Doodle

The full collage/doodle

Detail-- I almost like the details more, because they are cropped more tightly. :)
     Speaking of doodles, this is a very fun book for kids.  I have this in my classroom and sometimes kids will take it out in their free time.  It is small, pocket-sized, but has a lot of pages.

Oodles of Doodles

     I also enjoy this book, which is fun for scrapbookers.  It is more like a booklet, but it has a lot of fun inspiration.  If you are interested in looking at it, I found mine at Michael's craft store.  So you can page through it before you buy it.

Hi - I just discovered your blog and as a compulsive doodler myself, I love your doodle collage. Very happy and free-spirited looking.
The Oodles of Doodles book reminds me of a gift I sent last Christmastime. It was a book of doodle-starter placemats. It had a starting image for a child to add to (something to do while waiting for dinner?) but I sent the placemat pads to adults, not children. I think I confused them because they didn't comment on the gift. A shame, I think, because I know I would have LOVED it for myself!

Meri Cherry, Phyl and Mrs. Hahn, Thanks for your compliments! The doodle starter placemats sounds like a fun gift. I know I would like it :)

These doodles are wonderful. I don't do enough of this myself. Do they still have those Ed Emberly books? My son used to love those. I thought they were a great way to get kids to break art down into pieces that made it
easier to draw. I liked them too. And the un-coloring books too.
Thanks so much for your comments. xox Corrine

I don't know if Ed Emberly is still making books, but I used to love them as a kid!
