GIVEAWAY | Two people will receive a spot in one REDEFINE the Doodle online workshop of their choice PLUS a signed copy of Doodles Unleashed by Traci Bautista.

ABOUT THE BOOK | Doodle, draw, paint and play! With Doodles Unleashed: Mixed Media Techniques for Doodling, Mark-making & Lettering, you'll discover wildly new ways to bring doodling center-stage! Traci Bautista teaches you how to use doodling as a meditative exercise, a raw form of expression and a vehicle for telling your personal story. Work with an arsenal of creative tools, from markers, pencils and pens to stamps, stencils, inks and paints, to find unique, intuitive ways to make your mark.

Inside Doodles Unleashed, you'll learn how to:

  • Doodle spontaneous marks, repetitive patterns, stylistic scrawls and more

  • Create textured and doodled backgrounds for your mixed-media art

  • Use photographs, vintage fabric and typography as inspirations for doodling

  • Combine mixed media with digital layers to leverage your art

  • Work with unusual tools--skewers, toothpicks, sequin waste and more--to create surprising and unique marks

  • Develop a doodling style that's all your own

And if that isn't enough, you'll find links for additional downloads and video tutorials sprinkled throughout the pages, for even more doodle insight. With over 60 doodling techniques and exercises, you'll find plenty of ways to unleash your creative spirit and make your mark! Follow the Doodles Unleashed online book tour for more inspiration. You can buy a signed copy in Traci’s Etsy boutique or find it on Amazon.

REDEFINE the Doodle online workshop series has THREE mixed media workshop modules, Inspirations + mark-making, Girlie Glam Faces and TYPE & letters. You’ll explore a variety of painting, printmaking, collage, digital, art journaling and doodling techniques. During each 4 week session, the content is delivered in daily lessons including HD multi-part technique videos,  creative prompts, colorful pdf workbooks and LIVE demos/chat. The final week of each workshop includes a BONUS project video incorporating workshop techniques plus BONUS lessons on creative business topics throughout each workshop.

FROM RHODA | Hi there! My name is Rhoda Toynbee. I am a mom of 2 super talented kids. Wife to a very supportive husband. And a surrogate mom to loads of high school kids that I teach art too (or at least try to). I have always loved to be creative, but life usually has different plans for my time. I sell on Etsy to ensure I get a few minutes of creative time and also have a chance to share what I make. No point in making fun things if you can't share them! I blog (when I remember to) about Yoga, give away free digital art, and our crazy life. I make sure to have regular "walk and talk" dates with my sister, even though we live 350 miles apart. And plan frequent trips to visit both my sisters so we can have our Barnes and Noble dates. Family time and creativity. It's what its all about. Thanks for visiting my blog, and for helping me stay creative!

GIVEAWAY | One person will receive a $25 gift certificate to JetPens.

    This is so exciting! I am starting a "doodle Lab" for middle school kids to teach them how to doodle and take notes. Think visual note-taking. This would be such a wonderful resource! The class and the book!
