Three Ways with Roller Doodles

Hiya, are you having a good week? I have been, especially when I saw This Challenge on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog, it made me feel quite proud!

 Today I have a layout to share which I’ve made for the Glitz Design Monthly Project Challenge, this week’s theme has been Roller Doodles. As I had just bought some of the gorgeous 77 collection, and as I am a big fan of their roller doodles, I had to join in with this one! I’ve used the roller doodles three different ways on my page…

New Haircuts:

This photo is from summer last year, when my sister gave me and my kiddies new haircuts! The photo was taken on my phone as the sun was going down, so it was a bit blurry, but I added some effects to it using the Rhonna Designs App which makes it fun!

My first way of using a roller doodle was stamping it with mist instead of ink. I spritzed some Seafoam Color Shine onto a plate, then rolled the Feathers Roller Doodle through it and onto my page – it gives a more watercolour-like effect:

It lightens as it dries too. You can see a bit of what it’s like when dry below, where you can also see the peacock pattern piece I cut from the 77 6×6 pad and edged with gold glitter, and some 77 stickers which read ‘I can see clearly now’ – which I thought was fitting because our hair wasn’t in our eyes any longer:

 The next way I used a roller doodle was inking up the owl stamp so the owls were individual colours, it’s not as fiddly as you might think:


And the multi-coloured owls do look cute all lined up:

My final way to use a roller doodle this time was to create a border type strip with the woodgrain roller doodle. I just used clear ink and gold embossing powder to stamp it onto cream card:


And then I trimmed it down so there was no cream card showing around the edges of the embossing, before adding it to my page:

I do love to Roller Doodle!

This page is making me dream of summer, I can’t wait for those long days in the sunshine.

Have a great weekend!

  • My all time favourite layout colour is orange….a super super page and the different ink colour on your roller doodle is a great idea. I hadn’t thought of that!! Will have to hook out my roller doodles now! I saw the counterfeit post…well done you x
