Oodles of Doodles!.....

Hello :0)

I'd thought i would post these pictures I've done recently on here as I have a great response from a group I'm in on Facebook called Art journaling for women, I was truly overwhelmed at the  response I had to one of my pages. I've discovered a name for doodling - Zentangle - I'm not too sure how i came across it but when i saw this i thought wow, i've gotta have a go at this,( i had already was doing it without even realizing it!). So i bought a book called Totally Tangled by Sandy Steen Bartholomew, i know at the time i felt a bit stale with my doodling and needed some inspirational ideas and this book has really helped me. Anyhoow here is what i came up with....
This is the first one I did, i got the idea of the pattern from the book  i've mentioned it was nice and easy  to start with....

this is the 3rd one i've made, this is for Gareth as he is going to his first TT on the  Isle of Man this year (motorbike racing)

this is my second one i did. I posted this on the art for journaling  page for women on Facebook, I couldn't believe the response i had, especially as i wasn't too sure if i liked it in the end...but in the end i did :0)

Well that's it for now, hope you have liked what you have seen, thank you for looking :0)
take care

Pom Pom Canvas......

Hellooo :0)

Thought I would show my latest creation, although it's not my creation as I have made it with the help of a download from Donna Downey. My Mum had bought me this canvas last year for my birthday and it had been sitting around every since wondering what to do with it (it's 14x18 in size)  I wanted it to be right the first time, and then through Facebook i found Donna and i really liked her style and when i saw you could download a canvas the old grey matter went into overdrive. I picked this one as i love the colours and i keep being drawn towards teal at the mo so i thought perfecto.....
the background is covered with strips of muslin, to give it a texture and the flowers are made from pom had been years since i made a pom pom, i didn't even know now you can buy a pom pom maker!  but i used the cereal box method instead lol :0)

Pom Poms!! 

I used Sir Tim tissue tape where she had used masking tape and my pom poms aren't as pom pomy as hers...if you know what i mean...;0)

Thanks for looking
take care
