Just a dot of dabbling in doodling...

Hello to Friday and the weekend...
Well, I stopped work two weeks ago and am watching my baby bulge grow and wriggle each day. I thought with so much free time I would be streaks ahead on my DT work and projects. Alas no...it seems more time means more faffing around in my world...and a bad cold and a few days in bed have eaten up this week.
I was up to a bit of easy going crafting today and although I'm rather late with my entry, I wanted to have a go at Less is More's theme of doodling. I'm a complete layman and only ever doodle when on the phone. Plus the thought of my own handiwork instead of a trusty old stamp is a bit daunting for little ole Missy  Perfectionist... Anyway I grabbed a square block stamp, a white pen and just had a go...
I decided not to be so fussy on placement. Just going 'au naturel'. Brilliance Pearlescent Crimson ink here.
After a bit of scribbly dibbly on scrap paper I managed a few more blooms. Ranger Monarch Orange archival ink here.
I used a white Gelly Roll Pen and both sentiments are from Hero Arts. Can't face my own scribble quite yet.
Very relaxing and I even started on a garden. Could be addictive, but I say that about all the new inky stuff I try...

Anyway, that's it for now so with a cough, I am off! Sarah.

The doodling does become addictive Sarah - and you definitely have a talent for it!!! Love your designs. The white is very crisp - can I ask which white pen you use?

Hope you are feeling better.
