Doodles

I created these doodles over the last few nights.



I thought I'd try incorporating them into a greeting card. Here I've fused some painted paper towels to the cardstock and then I stitched around it. Then I held the doodle on the background and stitched the four corners so that the doodle can easily be lifted out and the recipient can save it and do something with it.


Anyone out there in blog-o-sphere going to the Fabrications Retreat? It starts Aug. 30 and runs through Sept. 4. There is also a mixed-media art exhibit, Blurred Boundaries. I have a quilt in this exhibit. I won't be there, but if you are, perhaps you'd stop by my quilt and say "hi"?

  2. Love the doodling. Do you create your own typefaces? I'm really interested in the consistency you have with the type. Calligraphy has always been interesting to me.

    I can never get mine to be consistent, but yours looks ultra professional. Love these designs!

  5. These are FABULOUS Terri!! You've really taken to the lettering - and I've always loved your fun flowers. What pens are you using for your lettering?

  6. I hope you made a copy of your doodles before affixing them to the cardstock (actually, I would have affixed a copy . . .)

    Your calligraphy is beautiful--you learned it very quickly! and well!

  9. I enjoy looking at your doodles. I love the graphic quality of black and white images with interesting lines. It would be fun if you made up some black and white fabric through spoonflower (http://www.spoonflower.com/welcome) and used it to create a project. I've enjoyed checking out your blogs from time-to-time. Thanks for posting,
