We’ve had a FANTASTIC weekend! Sailing, a night out, cinema, beach and breakfast out – but it’s gone far too quickly as usual!

In between all that, I have had chance to fit in some artwork though. This heart doodle is now finished and I’m relieved because it’s been on my drawing board for far too long!

I’ve been picking it up and putting it down every time I’ve had a few spare minutes.

It’s the most intricate I’ve done yet and I’ve enjoyed filling in all the little patterns and details.

Some little bits are quite realistic, others are completely from my imagination. I drew the heart outline first and build up the rest of the doodle around it.

Some doodle artists are able to go straight in with pen, but I find I need to sketch everything out in pencil first and get the order of objects clear.

I’m thinking of adding this doodle to my (currently empty) Etsy shop as a downloadable colouring page. If I were to charge about £1.50 to be able to download the doodle for printing and colouring, would anybody be interested? Please let me know your thoughts in the comments, both good and bad!

That’s all for now! See you next week 🙂

I’m sharing this post on the following blogs:  Handmade Harbour and Manon Popje’s Illustrations.


You are very talented. I love the monochrome look of the doodle, and the little dog in the corner watching everything caught my eye.

I think people would love the piece to colour in, but maybe you should charge a little more to reflect all your hard work?

Have a lovely crafty week,

AWESOME – this is just brilliant. Some of those little characters are sooooo sweet. 🙂
Yes, I think many people would be interested Claire 😀

IKE xxxxxxxxxxxx

There is so much to look at in this piece! My favourite is the little bird on the bottom left 🙂 I think it would be perfect to download, with the heart in the centre it can be personalised for all sorts of uses. £1.50 sounds about right to me 🙂

Yes, yes go for it girl! Some of my friends love colouring those kind of pieces in. Happy Paper Saturdays to you and it is so lovely to be able to catch up with you finally. Manonxx
