About Me

My photo

From School Teaching to Art and Craft Representative I have learned that I love to teach Art & Craft and see the joy that discovering their creativity brings to people's faces. I live in Queensland Australia & love the laid back lifestyle and the crazy Aussie sense of humour.

I share my art and craft adventures, products and knowledge on my blogs creativedoodlingwithjudy.blogspot.com & celticknotswithjudy.blogspot.com

My favourite trend? Teaching those who think they have no artistic or creative ability to discover they have.

I am sorry for being a day late, time got away from me. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did. 

This pattern will fit into any size space and you can randomly place the lower case cursive "g" at any angle you like. Play with it and you might be surprised at the results.


My book came back from the printers with a few errors so am awaiting the corrections being done. I only have a very few copies of the first run left know, but thank you to all those who purchased. I appreciate your support and hope you are enjoying doodling the contents.


If you are interested above is a small peek of what you can find inside.

FLOWER OUTLINE 2

FLOWER OUTLINE 2

Hi all. It is the 4th Monday of the month so it is time for another flower outline. I hope you like this one.


I have had such a busy day. I am now teaching Scan N Cut Classes in both fabric and paper crafts. If you do not know what it is. Look up Brother Products on their website or Scan N Cut on You Tube. It's lots of fun and a very useful tool. 

Check out my class listings for this and Creative Doodling on my Classes Page if you are in Brisbane Australia.

Letter F Weekly Alphabet Pattern Series

Weekly Alphabet Pattern Series
 
Today's Blog is bought to you by
 
The Letter F
 
                      STEP 1                  STEP 2                      STEP 3                   STEP 4
 
    As you can see by the illustration above I have changed the way I lay out my pattern instructions. I hope you find this way easy to follow. I have been trialling this in my classes and have used this method of pattern step outs in my book, and most people seem to find it easy to follow. I would love to know what you think.
 
 
My book has been selling well. Thank you to those who have purchased a copy already. I am expecting to pick up the second print ruin this week as I am almost out of copies.
 
I am having trouble deciding what to do for my second book. The hard part is probably deciding what not to do. Here are some of my ideas, please give me some comments on what you would prefer to see next.
 
The a 2 z Alphabets Book 2.
 
Celtic Knot Designs
 
Mandala Outlines
 
The Basics of Creative Doodling
 
 
The first three books would be mainly outlines that you could copy and doodle into.
The last book would be an in depth  look at my version of Creative Doodling and how to design your own pictures to doodle into. It would be written with the person who cannot draw in mind, but there would be a lot to offer for the person who could draw also.
 
I would love to get your feed back on what you would like me to provide in the next book. If you have ideas other than what is listed above I would love to hear them also.
 
For those who have not bought my first book the link is below if you are interested.

Thank you for visiting my site.

To celebrate the success of my book "Creative Doodling with Judy A 2 Z" and to add more patterns to the range that can be used to decorate the letter, word, numeral, frame and border outlines in my book, I am going to post a series of doodle patterns over the next year based on the letters of the alphabet.

I originally designed this book for Cardmaking, Scrapbooking and Journaling, but quilters, machine embroidery and patchworkers have been enlarging the designs to use with their work. You are only limited by your imagination.

Mandala Ouline 1

MANDALA OUTLINE 1
 
 
 
 
Hi all. I am going to be posting a Mandala Outline on the 2nd Monday of each month. I have drawn it in Light Blue so that you can go over it in any darker colour that you wish. 

I have made it quite large for those who like it that way, but you can easily reduce the size on your computer without loss of resolution.

These outlines are for your personal use only. If you want to use them in any other way you need to contact me first. You can post your finished works online but please let others know where you got your outline from.

I have recently published a book full of outlines. It is called Creative Doodling with Judy A 2 Z. There are many new doodling patterns as well as outlines of 7 different alphabets with matching numerals, words, greetings, borders and frames.
