ART DOODLE LOVE!

WELCOME to Day 7 of the "Art Doodle Love" Blog Hop!  

I am so honored to be part of the book launch for artist/author Dawn Sokol's latest published work...

To celebrate,  I'm sharing the Top 10 Reasons I LOVE this Book and you will too!:

1. The book is a perfect size. It easily fits in my purse so I can carry it with me.

2. Plenty of pages to doodle on, but not so many that it makes the book bulky or heavy.

3. Very nice paper quality!  My pencil glides across the page "like butter" and the book holds up to travel in my bag without bending or tearing.

4. Gorgeous backgrounds throughout, with colors that are fun, happy and keep me from feeling afraid of the dreaded blank page.

5. The difference shapes in the backgrounds, such as paint splotches, drips and dry brush marks are wonderful catalysts for new doodles.


6. It is a great way to jump-start my creative juices in the morning with easy prompts.

7. It is a great place to unwind and relax my brain before bed.

8. My copy is unique and not like any other artist's copy because of my doodles.  Yet, there is common ground among all because we started with the same book, so it makes it fun to share and gather inspiration.

9. It is a super book for both beginners and advanced artists, alike.

10. Once I started doodling in "Art Doodle Love", I couldn't stop... seriously!

You can purchase a copy of "Art Doodle Love" at your nearest book retailer or on-line.

Dawn is also hosting a giveaway that includes a signed copy of the book, some pens, a handmade journal, and other goodies.  Sign-up for the giveaway on Dawn's Blog starting Friday, February 8th. The drawing will be on Valenetine Day, Thursday, February 14th.

Oh my goodness! I need to order Dawn's book. I have been in a creative funk and I know how to get out of it! Dawn's book appears to have just enough prompt to get me started. Thanks for the review!
