Basic Training

Doodle Dee Day!

Michele here today to talk about DOODLING!  

Now, I know that everyone has doodled...on paper while you are talking on the phone or in school while listening to a lecture but when you consider it on your projects you get SCARED!  Well don't be!  Doodling adds such a fun feel to your projects.

I started with a tag that I stamped and splattered.

I used my precision pen from American Crafts in black.

I started with a simple out-line.

Then randomly added loops, dots and dashes.  I did this all around the tag.

I added some washi tape and some appropriate word stickers.

Then I decided to doodle around the stickers too.

I love how doodling brings some whimsy to your project!

Here is the finished tag:

I hope you are inspired and don't be nervous to try some doodling.  It adds a nice touch to layouts and cards too!!

As always, we thank you for spending part of your day with us here at SWAT!!  Make sure you check out the challenges we have up this up for a chance to win!!



  1. I love to see doodling on projects but am always afraid to try it because I will mess it up. This tag is just darling.

  2. I really enjoy all the different projects you show us. This tag is wonderful!

  3. This is so lovely. I adore the subtle doodling, and the huge impact it makes. It adds to the rustic feel of the tag.
