Page 1 - Thanks to Arlene
The pages in my new journal seemed dauntingly blank at first so I decided to prep some pages for myself. This was fun ! I quickly grabbed a magazine and clipped a pile of words, images or whatever else grabbed my interest. I also took some scraps from my pile of painted papers.
Now I have a lot of places to choose from when I sit down to doodle - blank pages or something with a little inspiration involved !
Here are a couple of recent doodle pages :
Magazine Paper collage - "Buds Bloom"
The background was done with a old worn green ink pad, a sponge and a stencil .
"Dance, Little Sister, Dance"
The dancer is a vintage image printed on acetate. Letters cut "ransom note" style from magazines.
"Om is Where the Heart Is" - two page spread
Color comes from colored pencils, markers and gel pens.
I know I won't be without my paints for very long ! They are definitely my medium of choice for their vibrancy and versatility. I am missing them already in spite of the fun I am having with doodling ! It has been fun scaling things down a bit though, making play time easy and very accessible. And it has the added plus of being good for my brain !!!
Now go doodle somewhere...it's good for ya !
Happy Monday !
