Leaf designs....

This is what I drew on day 7 of my 100 days of doodling challenge....
 
 
 
and day 8...another leaf...not much I know...but yesterday was a bit busy and one leaf was all I managed :)
 

When I began this doodling challenge I wondered when I would find the time to do it. Lack of time has been my excuse for not drawing...not designing...

Well, as it turns out...I am drawing at the breakfast table.

As it's winter...I make my current favourite...a bowl of porridge, and a cup of coffee and sit down with to eat and drink with a black pen and a sheet of paper. I'm right handed, but have become a left handed porridge eater!

I have to keep an eye on the clock though, as the time seems to accelerate and the coffee and porridge go cold, as I concentrate on what I am drawing. One day I left a little too late for work, so now I'm a bit more careful about keeping to my morning timetable!

But, now it's Saturday morning and timetables can be forgotten for a bit. I have some nice things planned; a brunch, a dinner at a friends...this morning I really need to mow my lawn...and of course, I will do some doodling!


A hint of blue sky at day break this morning.
I hope you have a lovely weekend!

100 days of doodling....

A couple of days ago, a friend of mine told me about a website where people commit to doing ...something....

...sketching...photography....painting....writing....

...each day for 100 days.

Unfortunately, that particular 100 day project has closed and the people on it are up to day 34 already, so I've decided to do my own version.

What I want to do ...for 100 days...is get out my black ink pen and draw...something...everyday for 100 days.

doodle #1 
I'm often having a little whinge to myself that I don't do enough drawing and designing...so...

here goes...

It feels exciting...and who knows what new fabric designs may come out of it? But I don't really want to have too many goals or set directions. I'll just see where it goes....

My friend Terri is joining me in this challenge!

How about you? interested??

P.S. Take a look the page I have created called 100 days of doodling to see all the doodles I have done so far.

Printing on hessian...

Here's a few samples of  the new placemats and coasters I've been developing over the past couple of weeks.
The designs are printed on hessian and the edges zig-zagged  to stop fraying. They're fun to make and I have a few more designs too that I'll show you in a day or two as I complete them.
These ones have a nice, relaxed summer vibe. I hope you like them. 

So, now that I've figured out the designs it won't be long till I have some in my online shop.

Day 40, Hibiscus painting complete....

On Friday, I finished my fourth 100 days project painting, of a couple of small hibiscus branched placed in a mug. 



Last week it was looking a bit touch and go as to whether I continued doing the project. Those leaves seemed to take forever! ...and I was tired! :) 
Now that I'm back on track, I can really see the value of trying to do something for 100 days, through tiredness, through a lack of ideas, through boredom. I feel like I'm in training to have a bit of grit and stickablility. Here's hoping anyway!
So, crisis over for the moment and I've spent the last couple of days planning and doing the under painting for the backgrounds of my next couple of paintings.
57 days to go!
The project finishes on the 1st of September, the first day of spring. That means only 57 days of winter left too! Nice thought!
