    Since I was in school, if I had a pen in hand and paper in front of me, I'd be drawing vines and flowers and filling my margins in between taking notes (or instead of, in some cases!). I know my daughter does the same because it's more obvious, she seems to draw more on her arm and hand but being creative in any way is a potent mood lifter! She also started making digital mandalas earlier this year, they are circular geometric patterns and seeing those mandalas of hers, as well as our own Cynthia's (MrsPeel's) gallery layouts, featuring her own crazy good drawings and doodled art this year have inspired today's challenge!

    If you aspire to greatness with your doodling like me but haven't got the skill of Cynthia or the patience to make intricate mandalas, then Valeria of Little Butterfly Wings has got you covered!
    She has generously supplied this amazing freebie that you will use specifically for this challenge & get to add to your stash! It includes 2 mandalas & 8 other fantastic pieces of doodle art, all as separate PNG files.
    Thanks Valeria! Click the freebie image or here to be taken to the store & add it to your cart for checkout to download them.

    The purpose of today's challenge is to incorporate multiple doodles on a page so your challenge is specifically to:
    • Use at least 4 of the doodles in this pack on a page. You can use the doodles as they are provided, or feel free to recolour them, resize them or duplicate them. You can also incorporate doodles you have created yourself or other doodles but 4 or more different doodles from the freebie pack must be recognisable on your page.
    • You must have a background paper of your choice. It can be patterned if you wish but the doodles should be visible. You can add paint or anything under the doodle layers (above the background paper) but it is not required.
    • You must add another element on top of (on a layer above) at least one of the doodles to personalise it & incorporate it into your page. This element can not be another doodle. Make sure you allow enough of the doodle to show however so that at least 4 of the original doodles that you are counting from the Little Butterfly Wings freebie pack are clearly identifiable (for example, you can't cover a whole mandala doodle with a giant flower, hiding 99% of it and claim to have used it).
    • You may use a template; you may include photos or do a photoless page.

    As examples, I've made two different pages using the Little Butterfly Wings doodles.
    From the red numbers on my pages below, you can see where I have used at least 4 different doodles and where I have repeated some of them.
    For the second requirement of adding an element over at least one of the doodles, I've done this in several ways: I added clouds to the moon (marked with the red 3); added a flower over the doodled girls hair (marked as number 4); added the string with silver beads to the mandala (number 5), and added the yellow pompom trim bridging the doodles marked 1 and 2 used at the top of the page. The doodles really are a feature and base for other scrapbooking elements in a more traditional paper-scrapping style of page here.

    In this second page, I've recoloured some of the freebie doodles to look more like I drew them with a blue pen in the 'notebook' & applied a rainbow gradient to the mandala and given it a die-cut look. I've simply added fasteners (a fabric button to the top flower marked 4, and stitching/messy thread to the mandala, marked 5) which are also a practical way to personalise some of the doodles on this page.

    Carol (Iowan) has made a really creative photoless page using lots of the doodles, adding paper flowers, gems & a butterfly over parts of them!

    To recap:
    * You must use at least 4 of the doodles in this pack on a page
    * You must use a background paper of your choice.
    * You must add another non-doodle element on top of (on a layer above) at least one of the doodles to personalise it & incorporate it into your page


    I hope you have as much fun with this challenge as I did & I'm looking forward to seeing your doodle art pages in the gallery!


    General Requirements:

    2. Posted in your page thread you created in the MOC Layouts Folder. You should have one post per completed challenge page. If you complete all 31 challenges, your thread should contain 31 posts. Please do not comment in the participants’ page threads so we can keep them clean.

    I decided to go photoless and just play around with the doodles. It was a lot of fun. Thank you for hosting the challenge and thank you to Valeria for the fun doodles.

    It's either not my day, or not my challenge.
    I am loving the examples though and those already done in the gallery.

    Thankyou for this challenge as I was able to scrap another one of my macro photos. This creature is fairly small.
