While I was in London visiting Marc, he nagged me something rotten about “doodling” more and his partner Rick told me that I should work on more card ideas that used my own writing ….. so what’s a poor girl like me gonna do?
Well, I listened, because they both really do know what they are talking about and when I got home I doodled a bit and then I did a bit of writing ….. formulating a couple of ideas ……The first idea/doodle (above) was very rough and only took a couple of minutes ….. but even before I finished the last dab of ProMarker, the next progression was in my head …..
….. what if I doodled it all again, more carefully but added the baubles separately to add dimension?
That’s as far I have got with the bauble idea, there is still a bit to go with it, it needs a few tiny stars in the branches, and something else … I just don’t know what yet …. but before I finished it properly, I took off again on a different tangent while my brain was whirring …. this time thinking about Rick saying I should write more on my cards …..
….. Again it’s very, very rough …… but a germ of an idea is now firmly in my head …. with all the festive preparations to get on with, it isn’t really the best of times to have a brainwave…. but hopefully over the holiday, I’ll have the time to work on it some more ….. I want to go back to the real basics and have a go at card making with just a blank card, a pen, a notebook containing jotted down phrases, sayings, lines from poems or lyrics etc. that catch my fancy and a few very simple embellishments! Think of all the money I could save …. watch this space!
