I find it so relaxing and fun to doodle so I do it all the time on everything. Papers, scrapbook pages, card, pictures, calendars….you name it. It really doesn't take a lot of time to make something special for someone.
You start with a rough outline of what you feel like drawing. Now, the fun really begins…. you start to add in the color. For this doodle I used Kuretakes ZIG Clean Color Real brush.
I used them the same way that I would have used my watercolor paint brush. The only difference was that these were markers. How cool is that. I outlined areas where I wanted color and then using a water color system brush I was able to float the color to other areas of my piece.

Gradually add your different colors and don't worry about getting different shades on the marker nib…it won't last or wreck your marker and the colors blend beautifully.
Oh, I wanted to let you know that a good friend of mine, Nathalie of Scrapbook-Trend had me on as a guest blogger a week ago, so be sure to check her blog out and say hi!
So get out those markers….and get doodling!!!!
