A DOODLE AND A TANGLE

Happy Tuesday!  Hope your week has been off to a good start!  Today, I want to show you a page from my sketch book.  I've really enjoyed this book recently.  I always start a little something in it, but never finish anything.  Lately, I've been making a lot of different things in it for Mr. Toast's Creative Tuesdays.  I've used pencils, watercolors, markers, pens, words, collage, all in my sketch book.  Today, I've made an actual "sketch"?  It is 2 doodles, but it is all done in pen, no different mediums, just white paper, and black pen.

The prompt was "Short and Tall".  So, the only "sketching" type thing I can even attempt to so is "doodling", I went with it.

I made a big bird outline, and a small bird outline.  I gave the big bird LONG legs, made him "tall", and the small bird little short legs,  "short".  The large bird I doodled.  Not tangled.  Just areas of doodles going down the bird.

The small bird is "tangled".  I made the grid of tangled lines first, and doodled inside next.

I am really happy with my sketchy birds!!  Hope you enjoy them too.  And go visit Mr. Toast's blog. the inspiration there is plentiful!!

  2. Very impressive, Daniella! These would make beautiful cards. I think I'm drinking too much coffee, because when I read 'short' and 'tall', I immediately thought of Starbucks!! ;)

  11. Oh yes, they are great! And I know what you mean about doodling a lot in a sketch book and not really finishing -- I'm so guilty! I have pads from when I was in my teens that I still haven't used up. You also mentioned art journaling (as a comment on my blog) and gosh I want to get in the habit of doing that! Looking forward to seeing more... hitting the follow button :) so I can!
