YEAH for Doodle Circle!!!





WELCOME to Day 5 of the "Doodle Circle" 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, dry brush marks, and fun illustrations are wonderful catalysts for new doodles.

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

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

8. My copy is unique and not like any other artist's copy because of my doodles and my friend's shared doodles.  

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

10. And BEST OF ALL... I get to invite my friends to doodle in my "Doodle Circle"!

You can purchase a copy of "Doodle Circle" 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. The drawing will be on Saturday, October 12th.
