Hey! A lot of people ask me about the tools I use to make doodles on the videos I share on my instagram @surelysimpleblog, along with requests to see the finished product. From now on, after I make a video, I shall also share photos and details- starting with this dino post-doodling dinosaurs, banners and florals!
What do you call a dinosaur with an extensive vocabulary? Answer below …
I like combining different elements while doodling. It’s not only a creative exercise, it also gives me fresh perspective on layouts. I usually take 5-15 minutes on a doodle. They aren’t meant to be immaculate and perfect, but rather filled with ideas. Later, I like to use the basic prototype to make something neater and more presentable. Doodling is so fun!
This lovely felt coaster was a present from Charlotte Filshie! Check her site- charlottefilshie.com, it’s all about dinosaurs and handmade goods, including jewelry!
