Hi everyone, I hope you are doing well and don't mind looking at 'Doodles gone Wild' :)
I recently bought a book by Tracy Bautista, titled, Doodles Unleashed. I love to Doodle and this book is about practise to take it further and using Doodles with Mixed Media. At the same time that I'm reading the book I see a gorgeous creation posted by a talented artist, Marja, see her post here, as she is was inspired reading the same book. So I decided it was time to stop reading about it and start doodling in my Art Journal.
This is my first try at a 'glam lady' - inspired by Tracy's outlines but is not the same as hers. I had so much enjoyment trying out 'doodles unleashed' but I think it looks like she has an Octopus on top of her head! My husband who is normally encouraging of anything that I create can only say: "She only has one eye-Why?" I don't know, why not? It's great to 'just do & don't think'.
I started with a collage using Modge Podge and pieces of designer paper. I ended up with a line across the page as I didn't smooth it out properly. You can see some of the design through the Gesso that I used over top. After Doodling with pigment pens I sprayed with Dylusions inks. I selected areas with Acrylic & Distress Inks (on my Craft Sheet with water & a brush). I also used a couple of stencils with Distress Inks. I finished by highlighting with a white Gelly Roll pen.
Here is the cover of Tracy's book
Well that's my Doodles Unleashed for today, thanks for stopping by.
