Back to School Doodle Art

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Office Depot, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #inspirestudents http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Happy Monday morning. Well, we are ready for our second week of school. I always have mixed feelings this time of year. For many years, back-to-school meant I was meeting a new class and starting a brand new year of teaching for me.  For now, I’m blessed to be home with Olivia while she is little and pursue my dreams of trying out a creative career through blogging.  I’m still a teacher at heart, so a little teacherish apple art is fun to make and give to special teacher and then also load them up with a bunch of great school supplies.

This little Back to School Doodle Art was a lot of fun to make. And something your kids would enjoy making as well. I started with a 12×12″ piece of card stock.  Using the thicker markers first, I begin making lines both vertically and horizontally.

Then I started adding thinner lines and rows of  dots with the finer point markers.  Working from the center out, I created a very lose apple shape. And to make it a real art piece, I put it in a 12×12″ frame.  

This year I loaded up on Office Depot.  They have all the brands I love and right now they have a great deal on select Newell Rubbermaid (Sharpie, Mr. Sketch, PaperMate, Expo Neon Window Markers, and Uni-Ball) products, if you spend $20 you get $5 off and they always have great weekly deals (this week: select PaperMate Flair 4pk’s are $4, Sharpie 12ct Asst. Fine and Ultra Fine Asst are $6 and Sharpie Dozen Box Black Fine and Ultra Fine are just $6 while supplies last). And if you sign of for the Office Depot Rewards program, there is even more savings in available.
