Week 7 of the Doodle project is long since over…but it’s been busy lately, so I’m late in sharing.
A couple weeks ago, we hit the road and headed to Greenville, SC so I could attend the Maker Fest at the Children’s Museum of the Upstate. It was my first time going to any kind of maker event or craft market, and spent a lot of time preparing for the event in the weeks leading up to it. My Doodling suffered as a result, but some Doodling is better than no Doodling! Here’s what I was able to do in Week 7.
The focus of today’s Doodle was to write out a cute cursive ‘hello’ with one of my new pens. I hadn’t used a brush pen before (it was a week of firsts!), and I liked the nice bold stroke that created a paint-like result. Of the 10 or so ‘hello’s I wrote today, this was the winner for the text on my new notecards, available for sale in my Etsy shop! View on Instagram.
This Doodle is a sneak preview of the next Doodle. It’s part of the pen and ink sketch I did of the Reedy River running through downtown Greenville, SC. For the Maker Fest, I needed to provide an activity for the children in attendance. Since I dabble in so many different areas I was stumped at first about what to offer the kids, but then decided that a coloring page of the town they were in (and an area they had likely visited before) seemed fitting. View on Instagram.
In addition to the river scene, I also made a blank version of the farm I painted in Week 2 so the kids would have two options.
Special Announcement: both of these pages are available for you to print out for the kiddos (…or for yourself!) to color!

This was a fun event and helped prepare me for future events where I can sell and showcase my creations!
