This is perfect for someone like me that can't doodle naurally worth a darn! I am very impressed by the quality of this doodle genie. It's also very easy to clean and it comes with very clear instructions on how to use it. I think there is a great selection of different flourishes on this particular doodle genie. I've used it many times already and have always been happy with the results :)
I've used this as a stencil by placing it on my project, then filling in with different types of paint or patting an ink pad over it.
I've also used it with embossing ink in the same way.
I just run it under water to clean it off when I'm at home. When I'm at a crop, I wipe it off with baby wipes when I'm done and its good as new again!!
I love flourishes! I am still learning how to free hand them, but until that time I'll use the Doodle Genie. I love being able to move the template over the page to try and see where the best place for the flourishes would be. I've used it with pencil, markers and stickles. I've had a lot of fun using it!
