A Doodling Update

It has been a while since I showed you inside my book that I carry around with me. I made this book at the beginning of the year and filled it with some paper from a spiral-bound notebook that Susannah didn't want any more. 


One BIG problem - the paper is uninspiring. Actually, I would go so far as to say it sucks any artistic feelings I might have right down like quicksand or sludge.  Nevertheless, I have waded through this negative occurrence and managed to get something on to the ugly green paper.







I was so excited when I learned how to do basket-weave the easy way thanks to TanglePatterns.com


There came a point where I just couldn't keep going with the ugly green paper and I fished out a Smash Book that I'd had for a long time. I decided that its beauty far outweighed its weight and that I would rather carry it around than the journal I had made. (I miss the journal I had last year that was made from a 2009 diary)

This one here is totally inspired by Alisa Burke

This one is inspired by a real live friend from church.



A work in progress

Started today on the train. Also a work in progress.
One day I will make my own smash-type book with the collection of papers, both odd and interesting, and maybe I will like it.
