Art Journal Simon Wild Inspired Doodle

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Simon Wild Inspired Doodle Simon Says Stamp Challenge

Hello, my talented crafty friends, welcome back for the new challenge. This week, our theme at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is "LET"S DOODLE". I've always loved doodling and for this week's challenge, I was inspired by artist Simon Wild's artworks and doodled on my  art journal using Prismacolor Colerase Colored Pencils and colored using Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolors.

The art journal I've worked on was bound with 24 pages of 9" X 12" watercolor paper. I really enjoy binding my own art journals and sketchbooks with binding tools and wires. On this page, I first applied some random watercolors using Daniel Smith watercolors and a brush. To add more patterns on the background, I sprayed Ranger Dylusions Inks over Tim Holtz Layering Stencil.

I started doodling with Prismacolor Colerase Colored Pencils on the page, coloring the doodled images with watercolors, then drew the outlines and more doodling with black ink pens. The page was randomly stamped with text prints using Prima stamp and Simon Says black ink pad.

I applied some Tim Holtz Rubs-on on the page. To add more texture, I brushed the Ranger crackle paint over the images I drew. 

This is such a fun page I've really enjoyed creating with these vibrant colors and lines. I hope you are inspired to doodle with us and join our challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
