Hi everyone, I thought I’d share a quick Valentine’s project for you or the kids. This was designed to be a card for a long envelope, but you can make it a bookmark, fridge art or frame it.

Here’s a doodle challenge to complete this card:
- Doodle the “negative space” around the letters L-O-V-E. Don’t outline the letters, let your doodles fill in the background to create the “lines” to form the letters. This will create a much more interesting look.
- Use one color for the doodles and then add 1 accent color. but only using it very minimally – no more than 5% of the entire spread.

Happy Valentines Day!
