It's a giveaway!!!! My friend Dawn DeVries Sokol has released a brand new book Doodle Circle: A Fill-in Journal for BFFs to Share!
To celebrate the release of Doodle Circle, Dawn is hosting a blog hop to spread the doodle love! And as part of this celebration, I get to host a giveaway for one very lucky person to receive a copy of Doodle Circle, signed by Dawn herself!
Over the last few years, I have had the good fortune to cross paths with the incredibly talented Dawn several times. Dawn is creative and innovative and has authored several very successful books including 1,000 Artist Journal Pages and most recently, Art Doodle Love: A Journal of Self-Discovery.
Dawn is the doodle queen and a champion to the doodle. She pretty much gets to doodle for a living. Who wouldn't want to be able to say that, right?!
Doodle Circle is a book Dawn has wanted to do this book for a long time! It is a round-robin style journal with awesome, straight forward guidelines on how to use the book, with the emphasis on having fun and enjoying the process. Perfect. It's full of colorful and inspiring backgrounds along with lots of fun prompts!
The first time I met Dawn was at my very first ArtFest in 2008. We only spoke briefly at the time but I remember thinking, "This girl is fun!" And I was right! I got to see Dawn (and room with her!) this past spring when she taught at Handmade U. That was when I got a copy of Art Doodle Love which I have been working in regularly and loving!
If you would like to be entered in this giveaway, all you need to do is leave a comment on this blog post. I will put all the names in a hat and draw the name of the winning doodler on Tuesday, October 8 at 6:00 pm PST.
There are ten stops along Dawn's fun, giveaway-filled blog hop. Several other bloggers will be hosting giveaways of their own for a copy of Doodle Circle. Be sure to visit everyone during the next two weeks. Dawn will also be hosting a GRAND giveaway on her blog and you do not want to miss that!
Below are the other bloggers to visit during Dawn's blog hop! I'm in pretty good company! :-)
Each chapter guides the owner and doodle circle participants through prompts that help them get to know themselves and each other.
Chapter 2 is titled "All About Me" and is where the owner of the book journals about themselves. The prompts are super engaging and there are also blank pages with gorgeous backgrounds, just waiting to be journaled and/or doodled on.
I started playing around and responded to the prompt, "What do you think makes life awesome?" I didn't let myself think too hard on this one and just wrote out what came to my mind first.
I am IN LOVE with how my doodles interacted with Dawn's doodled background on this page. LOVE it! Dawn's books are all so very fun! Check out her other books:
