I've been out of it over the last few days.
 Here is my story.
I ran as fast as I could, hiding here and there, leaping tall buildings with a single bound, I was faster than a speeding bullet and more power than a locomotive, but to no avail!
I was mowed down, rolled over, slapped and kicked to the curb.
The dreaded crud.
Coughing, dripping, sneezing, sweating, headachy, feverish and all that crap including the kitchen sink. Yes, I had encountered the infamous upper respiratory illness.
I am on the road to recovery, but I still feel like I've been draged through a knot hole. It will take time but I will bounce back.
That which does not kill us makes us stronger.

Doodles and Beyond...

I start out making my own backgrounds. I find it fun using liquid watercolors, they are messy but I like the way they turn out.

I also use different textures of paper, watercolor color paper is my favorite.
Each paper gives a different look.

I use different thickness of markers and pens.

 Brush tip markers are fun to use.

You can use different kinds of colored inks.

Color makes a difference.

Give it a try. The possibilities are endless.
