Double Doodle!

This week theme at The Butterfly Effect is Doodling...and I've spent hours(even wore out a pen) doing this double A4 spread. Doodling is very addictive so you might want to start on a smaller page lol :D
I got my inspiration from a piece by Tee Thompson at Green Isles Crafts, who in turn was inspired by the style of Paivi Eerola

First I coloured my background with water soluble wax crayons, in random blotches...
then I started to pick out shapes and fill them with flowers...
...then I filled outside the shapes with flowers...
...just letting the garden grow....
...adding patterns to compliment ....I then started picking out areas to add solid black....
...and used water colour washes to add substance...
....uesd a white stabillo All pencil to start highlighting areas...
...and drew in a couple of Faerie faces.....
...peek a boo!...
This little lady is my face no 13 for 29 Faces in February :D
Phew! Almost as tiring as the doodling lol . Thank you for staying til the end :D XXX


  1. Hi Gina, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

    1. Thank you Chris, I have looked at your blog and love the projects you are working on :D

  2. Looks great, Gina! You hid the faces well. :) Didn't even see them on the first photo, had to look a second time. :)

    I know what you mean. I started doodling watching Milliande's videos and my hand started to hurt and was really getting frustrated with th whole thing. I started off with the wrong doodle i guess cause the later ones were more enjoyable. :)

  3. Wow! Amazing doodling and colours.
    Hugs xx

  4. it just amazes me how you take ONE thing and totally turn it into something else! that, my dear, is TRUE ART!!!

    lmao on your comment to me about sex & stuffy noses. my hubby used to try the... SEX CURES EVERYTHING approached. needless to say, that NEVER worked either.

    hugs :)

  5. Beautiful, I love the color of these. Saludos.

  6. These are fabulous...I "doodle" up my positive affirmations journal. It makes it even more positive and fun.

    Happiness to all.

  7. Wow, you are the "doodle" goddess. Somehow, my doodling has never looked like anything that can be identified *sigh*

    Love the colors, too ;-)
