Welcome to Leisure Lane, friends…
Today I’d like to share some designs which I was reminded to dig out after reading Yvette’s post from Yvett’es Twistedvines. These designs are from a series I worked on back in the mid-late ’90s. They were inspired by a kind of doodling I did in my senior year of high school and followed me into college where I would doodle in some classes. Needless to say I didn’t finish my degree back then…Ha,ha…
The outside design shapes were done using a ruler, then without planning, I would fill it in freehand. It was always exciting to see to see what would present itself on the paper. (My apologies for the photo quality – it’s not a very sunny day and I don’t know much about photography, especially digital cameras).
Though the none of the lines were preplanned, they were drawn with purpose, and, I think, contain a certain strength. Though there are some certain aspects which may be repeated in a design, they always hold a completely different perspective within the particular piece.
As you can see, you never know where a ‘doodle’ will take you, but it’s always fun finding out. I took up this form of doodling again about a year ago. This time around I added other components. The result is fun and intriguing. I look forward to showing you the new versions another time.
Well, I hope you enjoyed these…thanks to Yvette for reviving the idea…I can’t wait to work on some more.
May joy and peace follow you today, and until next time, may happy days abound!
