Just in time for the Easter week ...the last parts :)

Hello :)
I'm in a really good Spring mood today, even though I was at work all afternoon and only just came home from my late shift. We actually had some lovely weather today. Just a shame the temperatures are supposed to go down for Easter again... but I'm still creating "Spring " on my paper.
I found this Journal in one of our shops and I thought it would make a perfect "Doodle journal" . And so I'm creating a library of doodles now :)

I started with flowers for page 1 and then vines for the second page.
I have borders planned for page 3 and lots more ideas for more pages. It's fun , relaxing and useful for further art work. Maybe even some future clip art?

I'm on week for of Calligraphy drills with my oblique pen , and believe me when I say " Brush pen is so much easier !!!"
I think I invented a few new swear words during my practice sessions. Just when I thought I had finish a page neatly it happens.... one great big ink blob ! Or I'm finished , start to pack my stuff away and accidently swish my sleeve over the page. Of course the ink wasn't dry yet, that would be too much to hope for ! so I have a big smear across the page and ink on my sleeve "Sigh"
So one more week of drills and then we start on the letters ...again. At least doing this for the second time ,I know what's coming. ;)

So.....the last parts of Ostara today, for today you get the last 2 parts
I have the last part, plus an add-on part with extra backgrounds and elements.
Part 5

and the Add -on

For next week we go into Spring with a floral kit -Spring Blossoms
27 backgrounds (I got a bit carried away)  and 15 elements ... I made this in 2008, one of my first store kits  ... damn, where has the time gone?

Anyway... have a great week and stay creative :)
Hugs Snowy

What a great idea! A doodle book! I've been thinking of getting one for me too. For some reason, I've been wanting to try sketching. I think when I go shopping next, I'll pick up a doodle book and give it a try.

Your watercolor is really quite good. As for the printing, I'll leave it to you. I have trouble with different fonts. Dyslexia. I like the plain prints best because I don't have to work at figuring them out.

You have a great week, and a Happy Easter, hugs, Edna B.

I'm visiting for the first time and have already downloaded two items. These are lovely and the idea of a doodle book is similar to the book I have of bits and pieces of the poems I've started over the years. It is so nice to go back years later and gather inspiration once again and the create something new.

I will enjoy searching your site for more beautiful items that you have created.

With blessings, dotty
