Drip Drop Doodles

Make a map! or a creature! or a doodle! or a dream diagram! So much possibility.






You will need:

* paper (I am using a mixed media paper, use what you have, experiment if you have options!)

* a drink to spill (coffee and black tea work great, you can use watered down paint if you prefer)

* something to draw and mark and maybe even color with (marker, color pencil, liquid watercolor, crayon)

* optional: a dry rag, an iron



Prepare your space:

* cover your work area

* have several pieces of paper ready to work with

* be sure your materials are within reach

* music? light? whatever makes it your ideal creative workspace, do that!



The work:

* pour or drip a small amount of your liquid onto your page. let it sit. or lift and turn the paper to let it run around. or place an object in a puddle of the liquid. play with it!

* let it dry, or blot it dry. you may want to iron it to smooth it out, but that's not necessary

* let the drips and drops pattern inspire you! let your pen travel around ... is it a map? a figure? a landscape? a dreamscape? just play.


Extensions:

* incorporate text

* share drips/drops pages with your people and see what they create

* play with different papers, liquids, mark makers.



Have Fun! Be kind to yourself and each other.
