(Actually, it was a great lesson in humility: I was so proud to win a contest based on my skill, rather than chance; after all, I had constructed a series of found poems based on book titles, and she had selected my creations to win. Then, I read her blog post and discovered that she had her cat select the final winners. There is always room to learn humility in this life!)
I have been enjoying my look through her art journaling book, and found myself especially drawn to her Over and Under Drawings and her Free-Floating Bubbles. Creating these drawings has a definite Zentangle benefit, and I thought I would share the fruits of my doodling.
From the Moleskin I carry in my purse, drawn while in the waiting room at the veterinary opthamologist for my cat:
Drawn on book pages from a Spanish-language edition of Don Quijote:
|I even added a little shimmer with my new glitter pen on this one; can you tell??|
|A little shimmer on this one, too!|
"Put your hand to paper, and you can be as creative as your day demands," Quinn tells us on her page about the free-floating bubbles design. Indeed, my days demand plenty of creativity for sanity, and I thank her for some new art journaling "tricks" to keep up my sleeve!
By the way, I am busy turning these designs into postcards, ICADs, and ATCs, in addition to art journaling pages. Multi-tasking at its best!
