And here’s another book to look at today. Non quilting…..But Extremely good for those creative brain cells! I present to you, Craft-a-Doodle – 75 Creative Exercises from 18 Artists by Jenny Doh for Lark Crafts.
I have heard about Jenny Doh for a very long time. She has been in the creative publishing world much longer than I have been, mostly in mixed media I think. I know that my friend Bari is actually a friend of Jenny’s and my wife Linda has had some mixed media or doll projects at least pass over Jenny’s desk in the past I think. So when Lark Crafts wanted me to review Jenny’s book, I said of course, because I wanted to see what she has been up to lately.
Craft-a-Doodle is a killer little “exercise” book to get you thinking creatively and just generally remember that it’s fun to draw…and you CAN be creative with just a few pens and paper.
Some of the exercises are pretty basic and some get pretty complex for a “doodle” but they are all pretty rockin’ ….
I liked the Daily Doodles by Dawn DeVries Sokol
and since I wrote this review on vacation, I also got a chance to do some of this daily doodling as I went along.
And the faces by Cori Dantini and Teesha Moore
There was even a little embroidery doodling by Aimee Ray too!
If you like to draw or know someone who does, this book is terrific one!! I think that might be the last “old” book I have to tell you about…I have at least three more…One of which comes which has a prize attached! woohoo!!
Until next time,
Thanks for the review, I think my non drawing brain might like this drawing book, I think my girls might too.
Scott, I remember when we had books like this when I was a kid!
