Doodle time

I was telling a friend of mine the other day that I wanted to do a beaded fish for my June BJP. Off to search for a fish to bead! I found a coloring page with a fish on it (actually I found about 50 of them and had to make a choice!) and last night I started playing with some of the doodling to get some beading ideas. I won't start on my fish until the end of the month after I finish with May's BJP. My plan is to take May's BJP with me while I babysit this coming weekend. I have to finish up the edging and use some wire for the center of the larger flower.


I've been doodling the past few days on and off and here are some of my other efforts.




This one isn't finished yet, at least I don't think so. My plans are to put all my doodling into a journal so I can look back on different designs but I'm far from having enough for a journal, so far that is. Right now they are sit in my zentangle boxHubby and I are getting ready to run some errands. It's another decent day but Bob's trying to take some days off from golf to help his hip. Now he'll only golf four days a week...for a 70 year old I still think that's great!

Love the fishy! All that detail---should be beautiful in beads.
I enjoy using the white pens on black paper; it sort of gives the work a totally diffeent feel...can't explain why.
But I do like it!

XXOO!!

Mom, love the doddles. Mine end up looking like chicken scratch. You could frame those.
