Welcome back to Doodle Lessons!
JUST MINUTES A DAY
Whether your goal is to be a better quilter or more skilled at drawing…You’ve come to the right place! By practicing every day (at least 15 minutes) YOU will get better!
AND you don’t have to go to bed 15 minutes later or get up earlier–doodling can be done in “stolen moments”…while on the phone, waiting in a car, watching TV. So NO EXCUSES for developing a “Doodle Habit”!
It often spurs creativity to limit some aspect of the process. Last week we limited ourselves to circles–see Doodle Lesson One: Messy Circles.
This week, we are adding Messy Lines.
- Scribble up and down.
- Make the lines bigger and smaller.
- Change directions (first photo above)
Then add Messy Circles…
What does that look like?
See if you can make it look even more like a field of flowers:
Try to make new combinations:
By working on what seems like scribbles, patterns and associations emerge…
Watch for those new patterns…be mindful of the new designs…
That is the creative process at work… YOU are building CREATIVE MUSCLES!
Keep at the doodling…even when it seems meaningless. If it’s not fun…try a new pad of paper or new pens, pencils, markers…Turn ON your creativity!
Tomorrow: A Scribbled Quilt!
