That's something I've promised to get back to this year. It's on my LIVE2011 list, the Creativity thing. I've dug out a couple sketchbooks and my Idea File, and have been doodling and adding to the file. It's actually quite relaxing and inspiring at the same time! Can't wait to see the project you're doing with Lynn . . .

This is amazing. What a great exercise - I love your doodles!!! Especially your wonky buildings, I'm actually working on a stitchery design very similar - great minds think alike? LOL! Good job, this is a GREAT way to get comfortable with a pencil AND I've heard you will seriously improve your free-motion by doodling first! Haven't tried it myself -

Lynn

Great doodles!! The Lombard St. part has a very art deco look to it.

Drawing quilting patterns is a great habit to get into. I always draw several pages of a pattern before the first time I quilt it. I mean like 10 or 12 pages! You were doing the right thing, don't pick up your pencil when you draw the pattern.

I don't think there is a right or wrong way to make feathers. Just do what works for you. My trick is not to try to make them all the same. That way, when I make a mistake, it isn't as obvious.

Your doodles look so good!! Your feathers look way better than mine!! I think that is a fab idea that I am going to try. I've been drawing up a storm and this would be a great exercise for me to incorporate! Thanks!
Thanks for the nice shout out. You are far too kind.

Brooke

Ohhh love your sketchs! Can't wait to see what you create!

For me, it is easier to quilt feathers than to draw them. I need to do more doodling to get some new ideas!
