My Creative Space - Doodling





This must seem a very strange creative space... I've been doodling! Most of this week has been spent in finishing my Loz & Dinny Trimming Challenge dress (see post below), but when that was all done I found myself at a loss as to what to do (housework obviously didn't occur to me!)... Anyway, I began playing with a collage idea and thought I'd experiment with layering leaf shapes and sewing them onto the paper. It was all so dull looking so I began doodling little motifs on the leaves... and then I couldn't stop. Before I knew it, I'd gone crazy doodling all over the page. It was fun :) Find some proper creative spaces over at Kirsty's.
