' ' ' 'Crafty Endeavours: Doodles tag

Doodles tag

Paper Artsy challenge this fortnight is Scribbles and Doodles.

I remember doodling when we only had landlines with fixed cords and we had to sit still.... these days I'm just as likely to walk around with the phone or put the caller on speakerphone leaving my hands free for more urgent tasks! But since, I can't say I have doodled much and cannot claim to be proficient.

Still one had to try...

I used a piece of masterboard made with Fresco paints, including the stencilling and stamping and made it into a tag.
I used a Dreamweaver Butterfly stencil to apply a first coat of Gesso before a coat of Yellow submarine mixed with Matte Glaze. When dry I traced the stencil with a black fine line pen.

On to the doodling... inspired by Molly Hollibaugh's video on the challenge post here.

For no other reasons that the left hand corner felt bare I added this stamp (a magazine freebie from ages ago) with Archival ink.

Thanks for coming by,
