Doodles

If you knew me back in high school you'd know that I was a chronic doodler. I doodled on all of my books, my binders, scrap paper, even my own skin. My note taking was always derailed by the longing to doodle in the margins. After entering the real world, aka graduating from high school, there isn't nearly as much time for doodling so needless to say it's been years since I last doodled.

I'm reading The Happiness Project, a book that was mentioned a while back by Julie. I covered the book with a brown paper grocery bag which isn't something I normally do but I tend to be hard on books...


...and all of a sudden, I'm doodling again. It brought me right back to high school and all of those text books covered in brown paper adorning the Quaker Valley High emblem.


And somehow my knitting obsession worked its way into the mix....


...which gave me an idea, why don't I use my doodles to learn to screen print (which is something I have wanted to learn to do forever), and that idea turned my ink yarn ball into this...


What fun!




:::Are there any other doodlers out there?

  2. Get out! I just screen printed my logo onto a tshirt about a week ago! It's incredible how simple printing is, isn't it? Well... Of course until you get to multi screening... :-)

  16. I'm a chronic doodler, too! For me, it's that or not take notes at all. I've always wanted to scan my doodles and put them on my blog, but haven't done so yet. :)

  18. I used to doodle but nothing like yours! Love the yarn ball and the silk screening of your doodle art is brilliant! Did you ever have spirograph? Your brown paper doodle reminded me of my spirograph drawings, which I loved doing.

  19. I doodle a lot, too! They aren't as cool as yours though... mine are mostly anime people/animals with the occasional design.
