Sketcbbook Doodles

I have this silver ink pen that just flows and I wanted to sribble and doodle with it. Sometimes mindless doodling is such fun. I've  also learned that down the road I often come back to a sketchbook page and find parts I can use in a painting or an embroidery.

Craft Gossip has a lovely article about Carolyn Saxby's Textile Art Sketchbook, which I thorougly enjoyed.

I looked back at your previous post about sketch books, which you link to. It's interesting what you say, because I have all sorts in my sketch book too. When I first got it I didn't know what to put in it, but sometimes I have so many clay ideas, it's good to quickly sketch them to free my mind and know that I won't forget them. Other times I just doodle, but I hate my doodles! But I shall use your advice and keep them :)

Doodling comes right behind writing for me, but I never do anything with them. Maybe if I had a nifty silver pen

What brand of pen are you using?

I only ask because I picked up a couple of 'Pentouch' pens, in gold and different nib sizes, and they're a pain to use. Hard to 'start' and then flow erratically.
I think they might actually be branded as 'paint pens' or some such....I'd LOVE to find some metallic ink pens that were actually cooperative! :-)

What I like about 'mindless' is that it's anything but...
