doodling away with Artline's Yoodle pens!

one of the most relaxing and soothing activities anyone can do - doodling! and i came across this set of pens, Yoodle by Artline. since i am a beginner, i wanted to try out with basics first and then later move on to more professional range of calligraphy pens offered by Artline. and boy! aren't these pens just A-M-A-Zing! Extremely smooth to write with, they don’t dry up fast at all. they are perfect if you are a beginner or mid-level doodler/calligrapher, someone just starting out.

i hate doing the patch thing, simply don't like them. so i had to find an alternative to patching it up. a simple answer - embroidery. and my inspiration - this lovely blog called Small Things

so here's the fractured denim as it looked after the accident. ripped on the left knee.

i started by first creating a sort of 'canvas' for me to work upon. a base of any cotton fabric to be put at the back to provide more strength to your patch
