Doodle Book - Morning Glories

They threw the blanket
Down in the field of morning
Glories and ate lunch.

Here's is the first of a series of doodle books, 4" x 5" big... or small, actually.

I decided to make books for people to doodle in, after being introduced to National Doodle Day (March 5th) by Sandy Snowden, an artist I met on the Ideas of Inspiration blog.

Have you ever heard about this before? National Doodle Day is wholly owned by Epilepsy Action and The Neurofibromatosis Association, both registered charities in England. All doodles by individuals, including celebrities, are auctioned, and the money raised supports the two charities. Next year, National Doodle Day will be held Friday, February 11.

The front and back of this doodle book is covered with handmade Japanese Washi papers. Even though the violet and magenta morning glories are on a black background, they remind me of spring. There is a black disk for the bead-marker. Waxed Irish linen thread holds the eight signatures together for you.

There are 64 watercolor paper pages to doodle on. Get you pencils, or watercolors, ready. The book is a perfect size to fit in your hand, or a small bag.
