Splendoodle Afternoon

Ok, it's a lovely afternoon, got my pens and atc blanks and away I go, after I've had a cup of tea. Entered a zendoodle ATC swap so I need to get doodling

Not doodled for a while and have been wanted to find out what it would look like on a text background. The absolutely perfect book appeared in the free pulping pile at the library yesterday - a really faded and yellowed gujarati text, I pounced on it, totally delighted. One down, 4 more to go. The garden is seeping into the doodles, plants and flowers, the tendrils of the wisteria, the unseen roots.

Went back through old sketchbooks to find doodles from ancient pots, boy those minoans could doodle around with nature. Bill checks in briefly. What am I doing in the garden, where did this table come from and where's that butterfly going - and he's off. Life outside is just so exciting when you're only 10 months old and a fearless kitty, no time to chat with me, besides he's not hungry at the moment. Catch you later!

3 down, 2 more to go.

Anya comes along to check on progress and keep me company for a while.

Finally 5 ATCs, I've had a wonderful time, just doodling away in the garden. I didn't even bother getting the table and chairs out of the cellar last year, the weather was so bad. Really hoping for a glorious summer this year. The ATCs will be off to Diane in Canada for a zendoodle swap, hope she likes them :)

Now is that a barbeque I can smell over the wall? Wonders Merlin

  6. Hi! It was lovely to see you over at Amanda Makes! Thank you for entering my give away and your kind comments. Your work is stunning!! I have to ask though...what does ATC stand for? Pardon my ignorance. We have a lot in common by the look of your profile. I like to sew paper from old books so I loved the idea of you doing your beautiful artwork on the same paper. Much love, Amanda xxx

  7. Gorgeous doodles and such sweet cats! ... :0)
