A few of my friends have been bitten by the winter lurgy recently so when it came to doing a doodle, not a euphemism, it was no surprise that it inspired the overall outcome.
A curious creation to say the least. Fancy a look?
Lo, page 3 commences with an Andy Skinner mixed media stencil, a pencil and a Kuretake Real Colour Brush Pen.
The lurgy was then doodled in using a black gel pen. Soz, doesn’t have a brand listed on the pen otherwise I would have listed it here.
Just circles and dots but effective.
Some colour needed I reckon.
Whipped out the Kuretake Real Colour Brush Pens again for this one.
Grey, red and black.
*waft brushes over page in creative joy*
Used a bit of black and mixed around with the grey on the corners to give it a little vignette.
Also went back to the black gel pen and gave the germs some cute little arms and legs.
Need to neaten the edges of the page though.
*puts thinking cap on*
Ah! White gesso. I masked the page with a spare sheet of paper and then brushed the gesso off the edge of the page.
Notice how the water based pens blend and shed with the gesso? Gives the edges a washed out pastel look. Didn’t know it was going to do this so defo a happy discovery!
Made a distinction between the outer and inner edges with a black Kuretake Real Colour Brush Pen.
Really love page 3 – no, not THAT page 3. I meant my page 3.
It’s a fun little doodle.
What do you think? Has anyone else started a doodle journal yet?
Oh, by the way, if you’ve had the winter wobbles, do hope that you are feeling better soon if not already :)
Anyway, thanks for taking the time to stop by and share in my little doodle.
See you again soon.
