What I'm Reading Wednesday: Doodling in French




Happy Wednesday, My Lovelies!  Sorry I've been MIA, but we've been out of town, and once we returned home, I had lots of stuff to do.

Today I'm reading Doodling in French: How to Draw with Joie de Vivre by Anna Corba.  After my art class today, I'm coming home to practice more French doodles.  This book is too much fun!

Doodling in French is five years old, but I didn't discover it until our beach trip: I bought it at the cutest store in Seaside, Florida called The French Apartment.  Anna Corba is a collage artist, and I think she paints as well.  She teaches a workshop in the French countryside, and I'd love to go!  Anna has been featured in Where Women Create Magazine and Country Living.




This book not only teaches the reader step by step how to draw simple common French objects, it also teaches creative ways to use ephemera.

I doodled la topiaire




I have a nice beginning to yesterday's art journal page, and it's the first page in a new journal.



Hopefully I'll have the time to share more French Doodles with you in a weekend post.  

What are you reading today?


Until next time...

Happy reading!

Oh my gosh you are so talented, always making such lovely things. I really want to start doing a bullet journal. I like keeping track of things in detail, the older I get.
