Give Away Doodle Designs

I'm loving all the comments for the give away! Keep them coming! It will be easier for me to keep track of who has commented if you put comments for the give away on the 200th post.

But you are welcome to continue with comments... in fact, I am sure you may possibly do so ...............Because............

Here are the designs I will be giving away!

These are developed from a doodle I haven't shared yet and some bits from Doodle 7.

2 things I learned.
1. These are way to complicated to have the students do.
2. Three designs like this take ALL day. One in the morning, one in the afternoon, and one in the evening.
But it was actually more like a rest to just sit and zone out and do the painting. I think I will be painting in my sleep tonight!

So, as much as I would love to give everyone something, I will limit the draw to 3 like I said yesterday.

I draw the designs freehand with chalk or Sharpie and then begin painting. Some colours soak in quite a bit, so they need 2 coats. I actually explored colours I don't normally work with in the middle design. I wanted to see the effects of using orange on the dark blue.

The designs are painted onto denim using craft acrylics which are also suitable for fabrics. The designs pop if you outline them with Sharpie. They can be washed...on low temp. The design may go muted if washed too frequently. You may need to touch up the outlining with permanent pen (which would probably only be Truly Permanent if you Didn't Want it to stay in the fabric!) If you sew it onto clothing, turn the garment inside out when you wash it to keep from distressing the paint.

Some asked about linking to your blog. I am fine with that. Thanks for including me!
