A doodle on this day, inspired by some lovely flower shapes that my friend Angela had been drawing during an Embroiderers’ guild meeting:
I experimented with shading, numbers of petals, types of flower centres, then scattered some hearts around to break up some white space.
The final day of UKGE and another tiring one, helping to pack the show away, so I did some very tired doodling, mostly playing with not taking my pen off the paper to make repeated patterns and lines:
Another day at UKGE, where I only worked till about 2pm, then spent the afternoon playing games with friends. They seemed to have a chicken theme, and I enjoyed a couple of beers, so I ended up doodling this plump chicken!
More doodling on this day, still at UKGE, so once again my time was very limited, as I worked for about 15 hours, including starting at 4am, so it was nice to relax with a doodle:
Another candidate for some gentle manipulation, adding a soft, watery feel:
Another busy day in the hotel for UKGE, so I did a bit of a doodle. There was a pear on the page beneath, so I traced the main lines, then added pattern:
This was the subject of another image manipulation, with a lovely swooshy background, one of my favourites:
Today, I did a lot of sewing, however none of it was very creative! I’m helping with the UK Games Expo at the end of May, looking after all the cloth that the event needs. Today, I pinned 35 metres of white cotton fabric together and sewed it, rather a long task! I’ve still got another 16m or so to do in the week.
My creativity was a bit brief. I mounted yesterday’s embroidery in Margaret’s travelling book, and needed to finish the inspiration page to go with it. I copied the appropriate page from my sketchbook, but it came out a bit flat, so I added lots of colour and pattern with neocolour 1s:
Two lovely little zentangles today, in my figure outlines.
One on a page where I tried out cork stamps:
And one drawn on a blank page, which will probably get a wash of colour one day:
Thinking of getting a thermofax screen of something like this.
