Doodle Directory Register

image

Just wanted to show you the close up of the pebble doodle that I so often use. I filled in too many squares before I remembered to grab the camera….. The row on the far right pretty much sums up the technique. Just do your grid, then come back in and blacken your edges. Simple.

It was getting quite tiresome to try to think of new names for these doodles…..so I stopped. I didn’t rely on the names anyway.

Lots of wonderful doodlers on flickr who gave me the inspiration for a few of these designs shown.

If your looking for a few good zentangle/doodle books, you’ve got to go check out Gaye’s post at Paris Salon from yesterday. She recommends two new books that I just added to my amazon wish list. Since she has them, I let her do the talking.

If you follow my blog, then you’ve already seen this directory page from my Zentangles with Attitude post.

I have an idea of what I may do with these guys. It’s so nice to see them all together. Being such a visual person, it really helps to quickly glance at patterns to kick my doodling in gear.

I just found out today that Dawn will be doing her NaNoJouMo drawing/doodling prompts again this year. She’ll start them up on November 1, most likely there will be a flickr group to post them to similar to last year. We’ll see…..I’m going over now to tell her I’m In.

This is such a great idea to have a doodle register to refer back to. I saw a few videos of a zentangle workshop the other day and it's so nice to gather ideas from around the world for different doodles and patterns. These look awesome!

I love this idea and am going to start a register of my own. I often go back to previous pieces to get ideas for a current piece, but this is a perfect way to catalogue my doodles.

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!
