    If you just do a "google" it will bring up what you are looking for.

    Good luck and enjoy.

    I use to doodle on regular paper or if you want to actually use for a stencil, use tracing paper.

    Lori Kennedy - her blog is The Inbox Jaunt - has some interesting posts on doodles. You can sign up for e-mails where she shows you her new doodles and designs and how to make them. Search for her and the link will come up.

    I got a big white board and I doodle on that till I like what I see. Be sure not to put your elbow down. You want to teach your arm that movement, not your wrist. Also use low odor dry erase markers. I almost asphyxiated myself the 1st time I tried this (oh and I used up a whole marker!). I found a big office white board at a thrift store for about $5

    I agree on Lori Kennedy's www.inboxjaunt.com Her stuff is the BEST and she breaks it down into steps. Great place for beginner and anyone needing a great idea!

    Thanks for sharing a nice new website for me.

    The above link will take you someplace that my security software did not like and would not let load. The real link is: http://theinboxjaunt.com/

    I use a white board. It works so good and you can use it over and over.

    Leah Day teaches free motion quilting on craftsy.com. She recommends practicing on paper first to 'train your brain'. It helps. She has a website: leahday.com.
