12 days to Christmas - doodling

I had been working on repainting a doll for a friend but it was an unmitigated disaster. Acrylic paint doesn't adhere well onto cheap plastic and I hadn't invested in any suitable sealants...I winged it on the cheapy cheapy. It was the first time trying to repaint a fashion doll and I will have another go. As they say (whoever they are) 'practice makes perfect'...a lot of practice lies ahead.

So...a Happy Mail parcel arrived from my penpal with goodies galore including 4 Paperchase rainbow gel pens. And as I haven't doodled in a while I thought these pens would help fill a blog day. I set myself the challenge of only using the rainbow pens with a black drawing pen and a white gel pen (which ran out and I used a white correction pen instead). 

No great works of art, just doodles. I like the hanging baubles, it was fun to do. The snow scene in the moonlight and the Christmas elf are ok - as doodles they're acceptable. And I have never been shy of sharing work that isn't perfection. It's the mistakes that help create newer better work. These little doodles may well spur me on to drawing again.

Thanks for the pens Marleen !!
