Here are some other examples of fun doodling with brush markers. The writing at the top and the flowers & leaves show a technique called side-loading. Use a dark color to scribble onto a piece of clear plastic. With a lighter coordinated color, pick up the darker color just by brushing the tip through the scribble. Then make your marks on paper. You will need to pick up more color fairly frequently. Don't worry that this will permanently "ruin" your markers. The extra color wears off very fast. I learned this technique from the EKSuccess booklet "Color Layering System" by Susy Ratto.
