Tutorial-How to Draw a Fun & Easy Turtle

Susan Masters asked for a step-out for a Fun & Easy Turtle, so I did one. My example is blowing bubbles, so I’m using it for the Doodlewash prompt of Bubbles.

And here’s the step-out.

Spotlight on the ArtBin Sidekick Art & Craft Supply Storage with Paint Pallet Tray


One of the items I received for Christmas was an ArtBin Sidekick Art & Craft Supply Storage with Paint Pallet Tray. It’s fantastic for organizing and for traveling with your art supplies. And did I mention it comes with a paint pallet tray?

Tutorial-How to Draw a Fun Hippo


This morning I posted a review of the Hahnemühle 1584 Notebook at Doodlewash. The dot grid paper is so fine for creating step-outs and I love working on the purple paper for my examples. The color does half my work!

This was done in the Lilac version. I can’t wait to try out the Peach and Sea Green notebooks with the peach and green blank paper.

REVIEW: Hahnemühle 1584 Notebook


Hahnemühle has entered the Stationery FineArt line and given us the 1584 Notebook.

Yes, it has dot grid paper, but it also has blank colored paper! What?

Coming in Lilac, Peach and Sea Green, this notebook has three sections:

  • 40 sheets of dot grid
  • 20 sheets of blank color coordinated paper
  • 40 sheets of dot grid

So you’ve got the dot grid for notes, bullet journaling, tangle patterns and more, plus a section of colored paper for lively doodling and drawing!

The Last Saturday Links to Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways


If you are looking for the Life Imitates Doodles Weekly Wednesday Giveaway #16 , you can find it here.

I started posting links to tangles, tutorials and giveaways back in January of 2010. I was doing it daily at that time. I’ve been down to one day a week for a while, and it’s still taking me hours every week. WordPress is flaky, making it more difficult to put the list together. Many of my reliable sources are no longer posting. Meanwhile, fewer and fewer people are stopping to look at the list.

You probably know where this is going. Although, I’ve very much enjoyed searching out all these wonderful links, there are other things I’d like to do with the time.

Today’s link list is my last.

I hope you will still come to visit and enjoy my art, reviews and tutorials. With the time I’ll be saving I plan to start up my Fun & Easy Landscape and Animal step-outs again and those will be posted on Saturday mornings. On Tuesdays, I’m posting a ‘Pencil to Paint’ mini-tutorial and Wednesdays, of course, I have the Weekly Wednesday Giveaways.
