Zen Doodle Gardening
Inspired by this month's Sketchbook Challenge I sat down to doodle this evening. I grabbed a plastic card from a the fun center I went to yesterday to use as a straight edge and ended up tracing around the entire card in various places around the sketchbook page. I liked the base the rectangles gave me on the page. I doodled around, filling every available space
and when I finished. . .
. . .I felt like I overwhelmed the page.
It was time to take what I learned and begin again.
I started with the smaller spaces. . .
. . .and then decided to fill in the larger spaces with oversized flowers.
Before I went too far I uploaded a photo of my garden doodle
to play around with it in photoshop.
Some I saved and some I didn't,
but I had a lot of fun and stayed up WAY too late.
I really like using complimentary color combinations.
I like that the large flower sections are colored in
but the smaller sections are not.
I've yet to decide if I will add more doodling behind each large flower.
Right now I am favoring the less is more method.
We will see what tomorrow brings!
What do you think?
