Happy doodling

Hi everyone! 

As usual, 
it's been a while since my last blog post.

On the plus side, 
I am having a wonderful summer! 
Maybe, 
if I can get my act together, 
I will post some vacation pictures! 

Today I wanted to show you a journal page that I did recently.


So this started out, 
day 1,
with me simply playing with 3 paint colors that I dripped onto my page.

Didn't exactly have a plan but not sure I liked the results.

So, I thought why not add another, brighter, color!

In came the bright yellow dotted with my finger tip. 

Why not add some black too!

Pods and leaves!

Ok,
I don't like that! 

Let's try some bright pink in the pods and some bright green for the leaves! 

NOPE!
Don't like that either! 

What to do,
what to do! 

While trying to figure that out I got out a piece of sea sponge,
used it and an old credit card to use up some of the paint on my table.

And,
now I have another mess!

UGH!

Day 2

Ah hah,
book page! 
I"ll cut some to fit inside the pods and leaves! 

Yay,
I like that better but not quite there yet!

Day 3

I really don't like it so why not just doodle on it, 
what could it hurt?

Nothing!

That's right! 

No pain,          
             just gain! 

I like it now!

Doodles to the rescue!!!

Woo hoo! 

I'm so glad I didn't give up on it!

I think I have to add the word "Perseverance" to the page to finish it off!
What do you think?

*****

Hope you are having a great summer!

Flower card......

This is a birthday card I made recently!

The background papers for this card 
are out of an old paper pack.

The flowers & leaves are made with stamps I carved and fussy cut. 

I added a sequin to the centers of the flowers
and added them on pop dots.


Thanks for stopping by!

Fear is the reason......

This art journal page was done using a couple new stencils. 
One bought & one handmade
as well as a couple old ones from my stash.

The hearts were cut from gelli prints. 


I also did a lot of doodling all over. 


I hand wrote the quote.
