The Doodle Bug

 Well, Hello and welcome to September!

I hope you are all well? It's wet and miserable outside but we've enjoyed a few sunny days so I'm not complaining.

Today's card was a sort of self challenge. I wanted to randomly apply watercolours and see if I could doodle on or around every part....And I did

Here's a secret for you... Eleven years ago when I was on the DT for City Crafter's, my team mate Linda set a doodle challenge. I was totally thrown... I had no idea what to do and ended up drawing some rather childlike flowers on patterned paper...Not good

It was only at the beginning of lockdown that I came across Ceecee's paintings and her amazing doodles that pulled me in and made me want to have a go. Now I am hooked! Okay, so my flowers are... unusual? I could/would never have just sketched them in this random way but by following the flow of the paint, a little different shading here and there, the blobs come to life in an non uniformed way that makes me happy. It's so relaxing to do, especially when inspiration is lacking. 

It's not everyone's cup of tea but each one is unique and fun to do and you get to invent your own flowers lol! It does get to be addictive though.

Thanks to my friend Diane for alerting me that this Monday's challenge at Simon Says

is doodling... So I'll add mine to the list 

I hope you have a wonderful day - Thanks so much for your comments and your visit

Till soon
