My Version of Doodling- 2008
Smooth drawing paper. The classifieds. Glue Stick. Pilot narrow tip pen with black ink. I worked on this "doodle" for almost an entire year. I took it with me to the art group meetings. They loved looking at it. And each time there was a little bit more. I think it helped the work--that I felt easy about walking away from it....and then returning when I felt I had something to add.
A second "doodle" wasn't on smooth paper. Harder to get "into". This pictured Doodle is finished now--all the white parts covered in design.
I often WISH there was fabric to buy with this sort of collaged tiny text. To act as a "filler" with colorful print fabrics or black and grey and white prints. Perhaps there was during the years I stopped buying fabric. Stopped stitching pieces together. Stopped "making" as they say on the Pinterest sites.
Sunny and warm yesterday. I did a little grass pulling under the ground cover plants. Grass seems to continually grow under things. Makes the plantings look wild and unkept. I need to pile on some mulch to smother the grass. Careful to not pick up any ticks.
Rainy and colder today. A "Reading Day" or "Baking Day" (heat the house with the oven). We'll see which one I pick. And, of course, One Dollar Goodwill Day. I may check the Men's Section for linen shirts. Also a good day to start a fresh new Doodle.
