Doodling Practice Book Finished...

As I said yesterday, it took me a lot longer to put together my book than I thought. But now it's finished, put together, doodled and coloured in. For those of you who have the doodling book by Maelynn, you can see that I took a lot of inspiration and ideas from the cover of that book. LOL!

Everything is doodled freehand (ie no pencil first) except the title. I had to pencil this in roughly before I used my black pen. Handwritten titles scare me. They really do! I just can't get words written in large letters to be even. So considering that, I'm actually quite pleased with this title - nothing too obviously uneven about it which is a miracle! LOL!

Any tips for doing handwritten titles please? I'd love to learn what the trick is. :) I guess I could have drawn two lines (top and bottom for my letters to start) - but of course I thought about that *after* I had written my text on my cover.

Sorry that the bottom photo is a little uneven - which makes the whole page and title look like it's leaning...
