The Doodlewash Movement

Doodlewash Cards & Buttons

So I’ve mentioned the idea of a doodlewash movement in a few posts, and although it sounds like a pipe dream, and certainly is, Philippe, Aesha and I still think it would be pretty cool. Getting more people to try to make a doodlewash is our mission! It’s super fun, and more people need to “DO” it!

We have no idea how to start a movement, of course. Just like none of us knew how to use watercolors only a few weeks ago. But we figured a good movement usually has some sort of promotional materials so we made some. Cool little mini cards from Moo prints with different slices of our doodlewashes on the back (you can get up to 50 different backs! But we didn’t have that many yet) And we also got some little mini buttons with the “DO” motto on them from Pure Buttons.

And what do we have planned for this doodlewash stuff? Not sure really. Did I mention we have no idea how to start a movement? Tonight we’re going to a party for First Friday, a Kansas City event where all of the galleries in the Crossroads District open there doors and people come from all over to look at art (and drink wine… there’s also lots of wine). So I guess we’ll bring these little promos and hand them out to some people (though it’s super hard to compete with free wine).

In the end, it’s just about the fun of sharing what we love and, who knows, maybe make some more new friends in the process. Just like all the wonderful Guest Doodlewashers (hit me up if you want to be the next one!) Let the doodlewash movement begin! And yes, we’ll also be drinking the wine.

      We’re doing something! Hehe… I like having a motto that’s just “Do”…takes the pressure off. Figure if we just keep doing, something will happen! 😉

  2. […] that first month, I immediately started babbling on about creating a Doodlewash movement and even created buttons with the “DO” motto on them by the beginning of August. I felt so happy to be […]

      That’s awesome, Mary! 😃💕 Yeah… I can’t even believe that all those posts about a movement actually came true! It’s incredible to see how far we’ve all come in just a little over 2 years!

  4. […] entire world was opened up to me that I’d been blind to previously. That’s entirely why I went a little nutty and started talking about the idea of movement (I even had buttons made!) and getting everyone I know, and have yet to meet, to paint with me each and every day! Back then I […]
