Now the fact I attempted to doodle is all JD, the WOYWW club and her linky thingy's fault.
Sorry Julia ... you must take the blame for me not hoovering and supper being late that evening.
Normally ...with the surge in members ..I can't get round to nose at everyone's crafting spot ...but with this linky thingy it was possible ... although I didn't have time to leave comments on everyone's blog. This meant I visited GezzyB's Crafty Bits and there it was ... a note book cover ... covered in doodling. My grey cells started thinking of when I doodled on school books about 50 years ago and before I could do anything to stop myself I had a sheet of white bazzil in one hand and a pen in the other.
I couldn't put the pen down ....I was addicted ...I was like a woman possessed ... and only emerged when the paper was full ...several hours later, suffering from almost locked knees, a back that had seized from not moving for so long ....and dehydration ....old age has a lot to answer for.
I have been told they are only for inspiration .... yet there are challenges using them and the winners resulting LO might be any of the above interpretations.
The other thing I tried was working from a sketch ....which I have not done for ages, as usually I don't like the result. In fact, I am not sure how one should use a sketch because when I examine LO's using one, they vary from looking just like the sketch (which is what I tend to do) up to there only being a vague connection. A few I have seen appear to have no connection what so ever... no matter how hard I have stared or which way I have turned the sketch. With a modicum of intelligence and craft ability, I feel I should be able to find the connection no matter how small, therefore the question I ask is .......Why... and how do we use a sketch?
Although I have tried a couple below ...and they did actually vary a tiny bit from the sketch ...... Please can someone manage to tell me how I should use a sketch ... especially if I want to do a sketch challenge.....thank you in advance
Well after all that ...here are my LO's
The first two are using the February Sketch Challenges from A Trip Down Memory Lane ...first time I've tried a challenge
And my third ...yes third LO ...... is using my doodled bazzil
This has been a long post...hope you managed to get to the end without the aid of matchsticks lol
Take Care xx
