and I really have to say.. I RE-HEALLY look forward to the entries!  It’s getting as exciting as BELLARIFIC FRIDAYS!! First of all, I am SO happy that I see new names joining our group every week and it is SO worth my time to post  these as I find them SO inspirational!  Second of all, I AM THRILLED that my book is filling up and getting “CRUNCHY”.. and THIRD of all, I am THRILLED that this is starting to take off so that I can have some accomplices.. hehehehe.. I even have some sistahs who couldn’t stop at one spread and had to submit two!  THAT makes me SHMAPPY 🙂

Ok.. let’s GO!  Our theme this week was da DOODLE.  I hope you had fun doodling and that you make many more pages using this technique!

This is Corey's! Fantastic doodles Cor!

Ebrubella's DOODLE! Beautiful colors and designs!

here's mine where I decided not to go the traditional black micron pen way but to just use all of my PITT pens and copics and any colored marker I could get my hands on..LOL

this one's mine also.. *ahem* I was one of those who couldn't stop at one.. are you shocked?p.s. all the white that you see is LIQUID PAPER (white out).. with a precision needle tip.. it's awesome.. one of the best tips I received along my journey!

Galit doodled in honor of her friend who passed away last year. Art journaling really helps us heal

Gloria Sauve used AMAZING and VIBRANT colours!

Jen was traveling with her goodies and made this page!

Lindabella ZENTANGLED !

PINKY DINKY DOO (Lori B) doodled this amazing bouquet!

Paulabella zentangled and doodled a flower!

Paulabella also couldn't stop at one..LOL.. and do I see our ARTSY HOUSE STAMP over there??? hmmmm???

Rhian zentangled so BEAUTIFULLY and used our STAMP in the middle as her focal! beautiful!

So whaddya think of this weeks doodly theme?  I AM IN LOVE with all the entries!  thank you sistahs for participating!  makes me soooo verrry happy!

Now next week’s theme?  COLLAGE.. what is collage?  Basically taking any “FODDER” (paper stuff.. ephemera.. receipts.. take out menus, business cards.. scrappy paper), FABRIC,  IMAGES that make you happy and gluing it on to a page!  You can use PPA glue or a glue stick.. both work.. the benefit of PPA is that you can seal the top as well!  Now don’t stop just at collage if you don’t wanna… you can use the other elements that we have used here on AJ monday!  You can combine it with crayons and doodles as well!  Build your page!  Layer your page!  And here is another wonderful nugget.   If you are looking for GREAT ROYALTY FREE ephemera, go subscribe to  She has AMAZING images that you can print out and use as collage pieces!  FANTASTIC!  So have fun with this challenge.. it is due by next sunday so PLENTY of time to spend money, and collect receipts to glue in your journal…LOL
