Doodle DIY: dinner party invition


Is it a crime to craft and DIY much? Because sometimes I feel kind of lost of what I’m doing since I sculpt miniatures, jewelry making, crochet and knit stuff and I draw. I feel I should make a choice but I enjoy being crafty.

I mean I never was really good at math. And when I was little I loved attending art classes. So I guess all my interest and talents (ahum) went to my artistic side of my brain lol.

I think everyone enjoyed coloringbooks and to draw doodles when they were little and maybe some of you might still do! In a more grown up style of course and therefore I’d like to share a sweet easy DIY with colorings!

Soms kan ik gewoon geen keuze maken lijkt het wel. Ik bedoel, ik maak priegel miniatuur figuurtjes met Fimo klei, maak sieraden, haak en brei en ik teken daarnaast ook nog. Dat had ik al vanaf toen ik al klein was.

Ik bedoel, ik was nooit echt goed in rekenen ofzo. En kunstzinnige vakken zoals tekenen en handarbeid waren mijn favoriete en tevens ook mijn sterkste vakken.

Ik denk dat iedereen wel een kleurboek gehad heeft in zijn of haar kinderjaren en dat krabbels tekenen je hobby’s waren en misschien nu nog steeds! Daarom heb ik hier een leuke en simpele DIY met kleurtjes! Misschien leuk voor het maken van eigen kerstkaarten?

Color in with the same direction, don't just scratch around.
