Ms. E’s Workshop: Make a Book (Or a place for your doodles)

Here’s a fun book for your doodles, sketches, bright IDEAS, and more. Depending on the type of paper you use, you can write or draw in it with pencils, pens and even markers. But be careful with marker if on light-weight paper (such as paper for copiers and inkjet printers) as the markers might bleed through and ruin whatever you’ve written or draw on the other side. Might it be a good idea to do a bleed-through test? Probably. The sky’s the limit, however, on the type of art and writing you can put in your sketch or note book. Check out a few ideas ideas below.
