Since I’ve been working on large…un-luggable projects, I was at a loss for what to do in my portable time slots. Until, Tammy at Daisy yellow posted this. I always fall in love with her doodles when she colors them in.
First I did the grid…then grabbed my stencils and rulers. Just marked it all up.
Then I got to enjoy myself, in a "zoned out" kind of way.
Doodle grid work without extra enhancements.
Grabbed my sharpie poster paints because they work so well on top of the markers.
What fun! Now I gotta go find another portable project.
Yikes!! Duty calls….maybe after I clean this mess.

When I got my first dSLR I needed to practice taking pictures. So, I went out to a local nursery and took a couple hundred pictures. Many shots were of the same image but with different settings. I then played with my images in photoshop and created the above grid categorizing them by color. It was fun and I liked seeing all these flowers together.
I stopped over at Tammy’s place today [daisyyellowart.com], as I do a few times a week. She was talking about “moments”. Moments when your art came together for you. Places where you may have been working on something and it clicked….and possibly where the whole piece didn’t click but parts of it did.
Since I’m not working on anything right now, and can’t for the life of me figure out what I want to draw next. When Tammy wrote of “moments” I thought I could create my own moments digitally and revisit the graphic grid like I did with my flowers. Use my own drawings and arrange them in a somewhat logical order.
If you can’t see the order because at times I stretched it a bit. Here’s the schematic.
- Column one…Green
- Column two…Orange
- Column three…Black/White/Red
- Column four…Blue
- Column five…Pink

- 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!
