Anyone who likes to doodle? ARTastic continues to present AWESOME challenges and this month it’s all about geometric patterns which could mean some doodling!!! I was so inspired when I saw the inspiration painting, and it was actually the reason I tried zen doodling. This was my first layout using that technique but as it’s a CT layout I haven’t been able to show it until now. Here it is:
Inspiration picture: The prophetic calamity by Shannon Crees (a graffiti artist). The criteria are "black background and solid use of geometric patterns". Jane also writes that "this could be the perfect time to try some doodling".
I was inspired by the sea theme and the colors in the painting. I wanted my doodling to look both as sea plants and waves. The doodling is done with a white gel pen and for the colored parts I used NeoColor II.
(There is a fun/cute story I want to tell you too. Do you see the pom poms? I got them as a present from DD on Mother’s Day. It is part of her “scrapbooking stuff” and I thought it was just something she picked without a thought. So I put it back in her stash when she didn’t see it. But she noticed that at once and gave them back to me. And since then she has been asking me every day if I’m not going to use them on a layout... (Mother's Day is in May in Sweden...) So I had to do that! =0 And now I did. :))
So now I want to see you all DOODLE over at ARTastic!!! Thanks for popping by!
