Doodle Directory…..stimulus

DoodleDictionary7

Had a little time recently so I’ve added to my Doodle Directory. I find I really like to work within the constraints of a small square. I think too much white space makes me nervous. I want to fill the space I have before me and I don’t want to take all day!! Borders make me happy!

Tammy’s post this week talked about constraints and creativity. The constraints I used for this (other than the size) is the color palette. I limited myself to just red’s/green’s and black. I adore red’s and green’s TOGETHER! I’m such a little elf, aren’t I? I guess Christmas decor is a year-round occasion! LOL!

Along these same lines, I want to put a shout out about this book (Doodle Diary-Art journaling for girls) by Dawn Sokol, which comes out very soon. You can pre-order it now at amazon. Dawn’s got some cool stuff at her blog that’s right up my any doodler’s alley.

Here are a few more Doodle Directory pages.

I’m thinking that I need better access to these so I’m going to make some .jpg prints of them. Much easier than fumbling thru my moleskines to find them.

As you can see, it's still all about shape and color for me right now!

I know what you mean!! So much to do and so little time! Just start small and do a little each day and before you know it, you'll have your own directory!

About Me

My Photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser! And if you're really curious there's a 3 part Interview by Eileen: HERE All the best, Eden
